There is so much great content coming to Netflix in April that it was impossible to choose just seven. There are numerous new international series to pick from, including reality shows, docuseries, and even a few game shows. Essentially, there is something for everyone. Despite the difficulty of the selection, here are seven (well, eight) of the best April releases.
1. The Last Bus (April 1st)
A group of youngsters is invited to see the introduction of Genie Orbs, a new class of robots. When the Orbs begin decimating humans in their vicinity, the eccentric gang is forced to board a bus and discovers they may be the planet’s final hope. Their sole hope is to locate Dalton Monkhouse (Robert Sheehan), the tech billionaire/creator of the Orbs, and hopes that he can assist them in determining what to do. Paul Nefacy’s new series premieres on the first day of the month and promises to be action-packed family fun for all ages.
2. Hard Cell (April 12th)
Catherine Tate has been a well-known British comedian for nearly 30 years, but many still remember her from her Doctor Who role as Donna Noble. Tate stars as Tate in Hard Cell, a mockumentary about prison life. Tate will portray a variety of characters in this dark comedy about the British correctional system in which inmates spend six weeks rehearsing a musical. The series appears to be both amusing and emotional in the perfect spots.
3. Anatomy of a Scandal (April 15th)
David E. Kelley and Melissa James Gibson’s Anatomy of a Scandal continues the long history of courtroom dramas. This limited series is based on Sarah Vaughan’s novel of the same name. Michelle Dockery will star in this new show as a member of the QC (Queen’s Counsel) who is investigating certain allegations levelled against a prominent politician, James Whitehouse (Rupert Friend). The story intends to go into issues of class privilege, political correctness, and consent. Sienna Miller will also star in the series as Whitehouse’s wife, and S.J. Clarkson will direct all six episodes.
4. Russian Doll Season 2 (April 20th)
Russian Doll is finally returning for a second season three years later. Natasha Lyonne portrays Nadia, a woman trapped in a temporal cycle in which she perishes at the end of each day. She finds solace in Alan (Charlie Barnett), who is similarly trapped in a time loop and is reliving his own death on a regular basis. While the first season appeared to conclude satisfactorily, Season 2 promises even more challenging issues and philosophical quandaries. Lyonne, Leslye Headland, and Amy Poehler created the sitcom, which was nominated for four Emmy Awards in its first season.
5. Heartstopper (April 22nd)
One of the month’s most anticipated new series is a young adult LGBTQ coming-of-age romance. Heartstopper is based on Alice Oseman’s graphic novel of the same name. The plot follows Charlie (Joe Locke), who immediately falls in love with Nick (Kit Conner). Charlie and Nick will have a lot to work through, but in the end, they will have to decide what is best for them. It’s certain to be tight, embarrassing, and addictive.
6. Grace and Frankie Season 7 Part 2 (April 29th)
Regrettably, Grace and Frankie’s time has come to an end. This is the seventh and final season of this endearing comedy about two women in their late seventies who discover that their husbands have not only been in love for decades, but have decided to divorce their wives and marry each other. As their already tight families adjust to the new dynamic, Grace (Jane Fonda) and Frankie (Lily Tomlin), the matriarchs, seek to navigate late-life singlehood. As Grace and Frankie’s ex-husbands, Robert and Sol are played by Martin Sheen and Sam Waterston, respectively. June Diane Raphael and Brooklyn Decker star as Grace and Robert’s daughters, who are diametrically opposed. Additionally, Ethan Embry and Baron Vaughn play as Frankie and Sol’s sons. Together, the four children and four adults form a terrific ensemble cast brimming with heart and humour. It will be difficult to say goodbye to this show.
7. Ozark Season 4 Part 2 (April 29th)
Our time with the Byrds is drawing to a close. Following the spectacular premiere of Part 1 of the final season in March, the last seven episodes will arrive on April 29th. When we last left Darlene (Lisa Emery) and unfortunate young Wyatt (Charlie Tahan), Javi Elizondro had murdered them (Alfonso Herrera). And Ruth (Julia Garner) went insane. She confronted Marty (Jason Bateman) and Wendy (Laura Linney) in an attempt to ascertain who the killer was. However, it was their son, Jonah (Skylar Gaertner), who disclosed to Ruth who had fired the shot. This may not be a popular opinion, but it appears as though this is not going to end well for anyone, and Garner essentially secured her third Emmy in the episode’s final 10 minutes. Another programme that will be missed when it ends after only four seasons, but it is going out on a high note, and it’s difficult to be upset about that.
