Netflix is the king of the streaming world until proven otherwise. But in recent months the streamer’s lists of new releases have looked relatively sparse as competing media conglomerates remove their titles from Netflix’s library. With its list of new releases for April 2021, however, Netflix appears to have its original production machine operating at high capacity once again.

There are plenty of intriguing Netflix original series and films this month. The one that appears to have the highest blockbuster potential though is the series Shadow and Bone on April 23. Shadow and Bone is adapted from Leigh Bardugo’s Grisha-verse trilogy and should bring another compelling sci-fi/fantasy universe to the streaming world.

Other worthwhile original series debuting this month include The Serpent on April 2, This is a Robbery: The World’s Biggest Art Heist on April 7, and the anime Yasuke on April 29. The original film options are just as loaded with the Melissa McCarthy and Octavia Spencer-led comedy Thunder Force premiering on April 9. Other films of note include the Idris Elba cowboy movie Concrete Cowboy on April 2 and Anna Kendrick’s mission to Mars on April 22 with Stowaway.

Though Netflix’s library continues to get chipped away at, the arrival of Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master on April 15 should help matters. Here is everything else coming to Netflix in April 2021.
