Spring has sprung, and with the new season comes new original movies and TV shows to Canadian streaming services.
From Netflix to Disney+, streaming platforms continue to pump out endless original content for their subscribers to enjoy, and this April is no different.
But navigating this immense collection of new shows and movies across a multitude of platforms can be a challenge and a rather expensive one.
Take a look at the most anticipated TV and movie releases this April to know when to mark the calendar for showtime or narrow down which platforms are worth the money.
Netflix Canada has a big month ahead with an extensive collection of original shows and movies ready to make their debut this April.
The platform has a lot to offer, from binge-worthy dramas like Elite and Russian Doll to lighthearted fun like Selling Sunset.
Ozark and Grace & Frankie will be saying farewell this April as their final seasons come to a close.
- Ozark: Season 4, Part 2 – April 29
- Elite: Season 5 – April 8
|Rebecca Banks, a Waterloo Region resident, said she has been a fan of Elite for years and is looking forward to the season five premiere.|
“It’s a good shocking drama that I always get sucked into.”
- Russian Doll: Season 2 – April 20
- Grace & Frankie: Season 7 – April 29
|Hannah Sopik, a Wilfrid Laurier student, said she hasn’t watched any of the shows returning in April, but they “have heard of Russian Doll, Grace & Frankie, and Ozark.”|
Sopik said she is looking forward to seeing Natasha Lyonne play the character Nadia when she watches Russian Doll.
While Disney+ may not have the largest selection of original content this month, the platform’s newest release, Moon Knight, is kicking off April with an action-packed bang.
The first episode of the Marvel show premiered on March 30. The following five episodes will air on Wednesdays throughout April.
But if superheroes aren’t your speed, perhaps the return of Kim Kardashian and her drama-filled family in The Kardashians will keep you entertained.
- Moon Knight – March 30 (weekly episodes)
- The Kardashians – April 14
