Here’s What to Watch on Netflix in April

It’s finally spring, and while the pandemic is still ongoing, there are many reasons to stay home — binge watching is one of them. An exciting new selection of April titles is coming to the streamer. From TIFF picks and exciting crime docs to a British original series based on a con man and murderer, there’s a bevy of streaming options to keep you entertained this month.


Concrete Cowboy (April 2), which premiered at TIFF in 2020, revolves around a troubled teen who is caught between a life of crime and his estranged father’s vibrant urban-cowboy subculture.

In the original British series The Serpent (April 2), merciless killer Charles Sobhraj, played by Tahar Rahim, preys on travelers exploring the “hippie trail” of South Asia. Based on shocking true events, this series details how Sobhraj was eventually caught and imprisoned.

The documentary This Is A Robbery: The World’s Biggest Art Heist (April 7) takes us back to 1990, when two men dressed as cops and conned their way into a Boston museum to steal a fortune in art. We can’t wait to dive into this daring and notorious crime doc.

Thunder Force (April 9), starring Octavia Spencer and Melissa McCarthy, follows the duo who form a new superhero team and fight the villains that litter the world, and in the process save the city of Chicago from a new criminal, The King.

RunSarah Paulson in Run (April 2) is a gripping thriller starring Sarah Paulson. It follows a wheelchair-bound teenager, Chloe, who suspects her mother (Paulson) might be holding her back — and harboring sinister secrets.

Dad Stop Embarrassing Me! (April 14) is a comedy series created and starring Jamie Foxx. Brian Dixon (Foxx) knows how important family is. When his teenage daughter comes to live with him, he enlists the help of his Pops, sister, and best friend to tackle teenage boys, TikTok and the family business.

The cheerful apocalyptic adventure Love and Monsters (April 14) stars  Dylan O’Brien. Seven years after he survived the monster apocalypse, Joel (O’Brien) leaves his cozy underground bunker behind on a quest to reunite with his ex.

Life in Color with David Attenborough is another documentary that’s on our radar. Premiering on Earth Day (April 22) in a stunning new three-part series, David Attenborough travels the world from the rainforests of Costa Rica to the snowy Scottish Highlands to reveal the extraordinary and the unique ways in which animals use color.

The original film Things Heard & Seen (April 29) starring Amanda Seyfried and Grantchester‘s James Norton follows a Manhattan couple who move to a historic hamlet in the Hudson Valley only to discover that their marriage has a sinister darkness, one that rivals their new home’s history.

In the action/adventure series,  Shadow and Bone (April 23), dark forces conspire against orphan mapmaker Alina Starkov when she unleashes an extraordinary power that could change the fate of her world.

Our Picks

Academy Award-nominated film August: Osage County is a dark comedy is based on the Pulitzer Prize award-winning play by Tracy Letts. The film stars Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Julianne Nicholson and Juliette Lewis.

Miss Sloane follows a ruthless and successful political lobbyist (Jessica Chastain) who is known for her unparalleled talent and her desire to win at all costs. The thriller pulls back the curtain on how Capitol Hill games are played and won as Sloane faces off against the most influential powers in Washington.

On a lighter note, we also recommend watching the classic, Legally Blonde, starring Reese Witherspoon.
