Welcome to your weekly look at what’s coming up on Netflix over the next 7 days in the United States. It’s an incredibly strong week that has something great to watch every single day. Here are some highlights plus the full current list of what’s coming to Netflix between April 19th and April 26th.

Let’s quickly cover what we’re most looking forward to over the next 7 days on Netflix:

After Life (Season 2)

Releasing on Netflix: Friday, April 24th

The heart-pulling comedy series from the genius Ricky Gervais returns on Friday. Although it looks like his character turned a corner at the end of season 1, there’s plenty he must still contend with.

Django Unchained (2012)

Netflix Release Date: Saturday, April 25th

Between Django Unchained and Extraction this week you’re not in short supply of great action movies but our preference will have to default to the Tarantino epic.

Jamie Foxx (who is also currently working on a Netflix comedy series) stars as Django who teams up with a bounty hunter called Dr. King Schultz (played by Christoph Waltz) and together they set out to rescue his wife.

The Last Kingdom (Season 4)

Netflix Release Date: Sunday, April 26th

Tucked away for release on Sunday is perhaps one of the biggest gems on Netflix that doesn’t get the attention it deserves. The Last Kingdom is the epic historical drama that continues to ramp up and outdo itself every season.
