Published Mar 22, 2017Netflix continues to dominate our lives in a truly impressive way. The streaming service has ramped up production on their original content to the point where most of our lives are spent staring at our screens. April is no different, with a massive slate of material hitting the app.
Love 'em or hate 'em, there's no denying that Adam Sandler's Netflix outings have been a massive success. Up next, he'll deliver a showbiz comedy with Sandy Wexler. The film looks like a broad Sandler-style version of Woody Allen's Broadway Danny Rose, and it hits the service on April 14.
Mumblecore master Joe Swanberg had a great deal of success with his Netflix series Easy, and he's set to make another project for the service with the gambling themed film Win It All. The movie stars Jake Johnson and Keegan-Michael Key, and it drops on April 7.
Other Netflix originals set to drop include El Faro De Las Orcas (April 7), Tramps (April 21), Sand Castle (April 21), The 101-Year Old Man Who Skipped Out on the Bill and Disappeared (April 25) and Rodney King (April 28).
Netflix's TV production is also busier than ever, with a great deal of newbies coming in April. Science guys will surely be excited for the new series Bill Nye Saves the World, which arrives on April 21. There's also the arrival of Mystery Science Theatre 3000: The Return on April 14. The excellent film Dear White People will also become a series, set to launch on April 28.
Further, Netflix will deliver Season 2 of Chewing Gum (April 4), Season 2 of The Last Kingdom (April 6), new weekly episodes of Riverdale, Season 1 Part 2 of The Get Down (April 7), Season 1 of Girlboss (April 21), Season 2 of Tales By Light (April 21) and Season 1 of Las Chicas del Cable (April 27).
Feel exhausted yet? Us too, but there's so much more. For example, Netflix will offer up a new Louis C.K. comedy special, simply called 2017, on April 4. Then there's a special from the Lucas Brothers called On Drugs set to drop on April 18. Plus a new special from Vir Das called Abroad Understanding, set to arrive on April 25.
Then there are the Netflix original documentaries. After premiering at Sundance earlier this year, the company is set to premiere Season 1 of the porn industry doc Hot Girls Wanted: Turned On on April 21 as well as the new film Casting JonBenet on April 28.
There's so much original content that it's easy to forget that Netflix also offers non-exclusive work. This month will see the arrival of Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie (April 1), Rio 2 (April 1), Mad Max: Fury Road (April 9), Kevin Hart: What Now? (April 11), the Entourage movie (April 16) and Disney's Queen of Katwe (April 25).
