Welcome to your comprehensive look at what’s scheduled for Netflix in the US throughout the month of April 2020. This will be our big ongoing article where we cover everything that’s set to arrive on Netflix throughout April.
April 2020 is going to be a strange month and one we suspect Netflix may make a few more releases available given the current global situation surrounding coronavirus. Beyond that, we’ve got some huge titles return including the much anticipated fourth part of Money Heist.
You can find an expanded list of the Netflix Originals coming in April 2020 here and sadly, those in the US won’t be getting the final batch of Studio Ghibli titles on April 1st.
We’ve recently had to remove Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj as it has become the first Netflix title to be officially delayed due to the ongoing pandemic.
Want to look further ahead? You can find our ongoing preview for the May 2020 releases here.
