What’s new on Netflix and what’s leaving in April 2018

Parker Hall

April is a time of transition around the globe. And as the seasons change, so does the selection of films available on Netflix, which will offer a huge variety of new streaming options this month. From original shows to top-notch films, Netflix has a massive number of compelling offerings. Read on for all the highlights, then scroll down for a full list of what’s new on Netflix.

The biggest house-produced show from the streaming giant is a reboot of the classic sci-fi series Lost In Space. The show, which follows the spave-traveling Robinson family as they crash land on a foreign planet, should offer excellent special effects and a thrilling extraterrestrial storyline, bringing new fans into the universe of the beloved 1960s franchise.

On the non-fiction front, Netflix celebrates National Food Month with the release of a new season of popular culinary series Chef’s Table, which this time focuses on the world’s top pastry chefs.

Notable films to appear in April largely focus on the family, including The Week Of, the fourth and final in a series of Netflix-ordered films from Adam Sandler, and 6 Ballons, which stars Abbi Jacobsen as a woman who is taking care of her brother (Dave Franco) as he struggles with heroin addiction. Another highlight is Come Sunday, which follows a preacher (Chiwetel Ejiofor) who finds himself struggling with the power structures and ideologies of Evangelical Christianity.

Other highlights for April include classics like Scarface, dramas like Seven, and comic book films like Sin City.

Our top picks for April

‘Lost In Space’ (Season 1)

Netflix’s house-made reboot of this classic sci-fi series from the 1960s follows the highly trained Robinson family as they’re forced to crash land their ship on an unexplored planet while on a mission to establish a new space colony.

‘The Week Of’

The fourth and final film in Adam Sandler’s multi-film deal with Netflix has the famed comedian sharing the screen with Chris Rock. Both funnymen play fathers — Rock is a wealthy surgeon and Sandler is an average Joe— during the hectic week of their children’s wedding.

‘Chef’s Table: Pastry’

The streaming giant’s beautifully shot food series returns, this time offering salivating viewers intimate portraits of some of the world’s finest dessert chefs.

‘Come Sunday’

Chiwetel Ejiofor plays a preacher who rethinks his faith and the faith of others in this film about the struggle for power and righteousness in the world of Evangelical Christianity.

As usual, April marks your last chance to watch a variety of shows and movies before they leave Netflix. Be sure to catch critically acclaimed hits like Apollo 13  and The Shawshank Redemption, as well as comedies like Caddyshack and Cool Runnings, before they hit the streaming ether.

Below is the full list of everything new coming to the streamer in the month of April, and everything going away. The bolded names signal more of our favorites to help you load up your binge bin.
