It’s once again time to take stock of what’s new on Netflix over the past week and take a look at the new releases over the weekend. Here’s everything new on Netflix for the week ending April 3rd, 2022.

For more of our movie picks of the week check out our dedicated list here. Looking ahead, 27 new movies and shows are scheduled to land in the next 7 days.


New Movies and Shows You May Have Missed This Week

Captain Nova (2021)

Genre: Adventure, Family, Sci-Fi
Director: Maurice Trouwborst
Cast: Kika van de Vijver, Marouane Meftah, Hannah van Lunteren, Sander van de Pavert, Anniek Pheifer, Joep Vermolen
Writer: Lotte Tabbers, Maurice Trouwborst
Runtime: 86 min

Coming out of The Netherlands around the world this week is Captain Nova, a new family sci-fi feature film that first released theatrically in late 2021.

The movie is compared to the likes of Lost in Space and received favorable reviews from cinema-going audiences that caught the film and now is on Netflix.

Here’s what you can expect if you decide to give it a whirl:

“A fighter pilot from a desolate future unexpectedly transforms into her younger self while traveling back in time on a mission to avert global disaster.”


Shrek Forever After (2010)

Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy
Director: Mike Mitchell
Cast: Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz, Eddie Murphy
Writer: Josh Klausner, Darren Lemke, William Steig
Runtime: 93 min

It’s been a pretty good week for new kids content. You have the new Netflix Original movie Apollo 10 1/2 which has a 90+ percentage score on RottenTomatoes and a slew of licensed series got new seasons (CoComelon, Abby Hatcher, and Polly Pocket).

Perhaps the best news is that the third Shrek movie landed on the service meaning you can now binge all three Shrek movies for the rest of April 2022 (the first two movies are leaving in May).


Heartland (Season 14)

Genre: Drama, Family
Cast: Amber Marshall, Shaun Johnston, Michelle Morgan
Writer: Murray Shostak
Runtime: 45 min

We’ve given constant recommendations for Heartland over the years and there’s good reason for it. The Canadian series continues to deliver season after season and while the US is the last country to receive new seasons, it’s one of the few countries where you can binge every prior season.

Here’s what you can expect from the show if you’ve never watched it before:

“Spunky teenager Amy is reeling from the sudden death of her mother when she and her grandfather are threatened with the loss of their horse ranch.”

Season 15 of Heartland recently wrapped its run in Canada and will come to Netflix US but not until 2023.
