Here's What Is Coming To Netflix In April 2018

Also, here are the shows and movies you've got to watch before they leave.

April is a beautiful month, when warm mists can carry the flowery smells of a new spring into the air. Plastic pastel eggs pile high in the supermarkets. Wondrous golden chains of pollen fall from the skies and into your allergy-prone eyes. And, Netflix adds more shows and movies for you to binge.

Netflix has revealed what it plans to add to your subscription next month in a promotional video replete with the kind of upbeat muzak that accompanies corporate trailers.

There’s a new Adam Sandler movie that won’t be named here, as millions will watch it regardless (watch “The Meyerowitz Stories” instead). “Scarface” joins on Easter, which is of course total fun for the whole family. Actually, most of the new movies this month join on Easter (April 1), so you don’t have long to wait.

Almost all the shows that are coming to Netflix are originals from the company. Additionally, the latest season of “Jane the Virgin” will apparently be available shortly after the show finishes its season’s television run on April 6. That rarely happens, and might be a sign that Netflix wants to start competing with Hulu’s main model of adding episodes shortly after they air on traditional channels.

Netflix also loses numerous movies on April 1, including a few titles it just acquired months ago, such as “Caddyshack” and the “American Pie” series. Last chance to see Jason Biggs hook up with a pie and wonder if he would have won an Oscar if it had been a fish instead.

Check out the full list of arrivals and departures below. And if you want to stay informed on what’s joining Netflix on a weekly basis, make sure to subscribe to the Streamline newsletter.
