Everything coming to Netflix in April

  • Updated

Every month, Netflix adds new homework distractions and takes away old ones.

Around the world, the novel coronavirus has people practicing social distancing guidelines and staying indoors. On Monday, the City of Stillwater issued a Shelter in Place order that will stay in effect until April 16 at the earliest, meaning even fewer people should be out and about.

But many people are bored of staying home. Luckily, Netflix adds to its offerings every month, meaning there will be new content to binge watch on April 1, so you can stop rewatching the same three shows. Here’s what I’m looking forward to watching most.

The Iliza Shlesinger Sketch Show

Iliza Shlesinger is one of my all-time favorite comedians, right up there with John Mulaney and Ali Wong. So, obviously, I’m excited for this sketch show. Iliza has four stand-up specials on Netflix already, and all of them are hilarious. I’m excited to see what she’s come up with for this; it’s sure to be a riot.

Despicable Me

This movie came out when I was in middle school, and it was my little sister’s favorite movie for a long time. We watched it all the time on road trips and when I babysat her. I haven’t watched it in years, so I’m excited to rewatch it now. It’s a great family movie, but it’s also just a great movie to watch when you don’t want to watch something too serious. Plus, how can you not love the movie that gave us “Gorls?”

The Vatican Tapes

Anyone who knows me knows I love horror, and nothing scares me more than demons and possession, so this movie about exorcisms is right up my alley. It’s a great movie for any horror fan. Plus, it’s got Michael Pena.

Here are all the movies and shows coming to Netflix in April.
