It’s the weekend but perhaps more importantly its the end of an era. In fact, it’s the end of two eras as two major Netflix Original series come to a close today. Here’s your Friday rundown of what’s new and what’s trending on Netflix for April 29th, 2022.
As you may know, we’re about to head into a new month which means lots of new movies and shows arriving on the service. There are dozens of new titles on the way but also quite a few movies and shows leaving the service too. We advise you to prioritize anything on our leaving list before diving into today’s additions.
Best New Movies and Shows on Netflix for April 29th

Cementing its position as the longest-running show on Netflix (in terms of number of episodes at least) is Grace and Frankie which returns for the second half of its seventh and final season today.
Here’s how Netflix describes the send-off for the pair:
“Seven years ago, Grace and Frankie’s lives turned upside down when their longtime husbands left them for… each other. Both sparring partners and partners-in-crime, Grace and Frankie formed an unlikely and unbreakable bond as they faced uncertain futures head-on, and hand-in-hand. They’ve laughed together, cried together, did shrooms together, and twice-over became successful entrepreneurs together.”
Ozark (Season 4 Part 2)
Genre: Crime, Drama, Thriller
Cast: Jason Bateman, Laura Linney, Sofia Hublitz
Writer: Bill Dubuque, Mark Williams
Runtime: 60 min

The second show bowing out today is Ozark which comes with another 7 episodes to round out its expanded fourth and final season.
We’ve seen the Byrde family wrestle with the cartel for years now but what will be the conclusion? You’ll get to find out in this conclusion to one of Netflix’s best TV shows in its history.
Netflix also pushed a 30-minute retrospective documentary today too meaning that once you’ve binge-watched the final episodes, you can take a peek at the behind-the-scenes and see what the cast and crew think about the conclusion.

Finally, we want to highlight the new animated series that hit Netflix yesterday.
Based on the comics by Stan Sakai who assists in this series and gives his blessing to the numerous changes that have come in, the show follows a teenage rabbit who is eager to become a true samurai.
Throughout the series which features some stunningly unique animation, you’ll see the young rabbit team up with numerous other creatures to battle off impending threats to the city.
Reviews have been largely positive thus far for the new series and we’d be interested in knowing what you think in the comments down below.
