What’s Worth Streaming: New on Netflix in April 2022: Here’s what’s coming, and what’s leaving

0

Netflix has a slate of acclaimed series returning in April, along with some potential new hits.

“Russian Doll” (April 20), which premiered way back in 2019, is back for a second season. Natasha Lyonne stars in the existential comedy/drama about a woman who was stuck in a time loop in Season 1. The mysterious teaser for Season 2 makes it look like the universe isn’t done wither her yet, with more mind-bending plot twists.

is also wrapping up two of its longer-running shows. “Ozark” (April 29) will surely go out with a bang with Part 2 of its fourth season (Part 1 dropped in January). The seven remaining episodes find Marty and Wendy (Jason Bateman and Laura Linney) in too deep with the cartel, while Ruth (Julia Garner) is out for revenge. That same day, the seventh and final season of “Grace and Frankie” drops, as the two unlikely friends (Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda) start their final chapter.

There’s also Season 5 of the Spanish high-school drama “Elite” (April 8); “The Ultimatum: Marry or Move On” (April 6, with new eps every week), a new relationship reality show whose title says it all; “Anatomy of a Scandal” (April 15), a British legal thriller starring Rupert Friend, Sienna Miller and Michelle Dockery; Season 5 of the realty reality show “Selling Sunset” (April 22); and “Return to Space” (April 7), a documentary chronicling SpaceX’s first NASA astronaut launch last May.

The slate of movies includes “The Bubble” (April 1), a comedy from Judd Apatow about a cast and crew trying to shoot a blockbuster movie inside a pandemic bubble; “Choose or Die” (April 15), a horror thriller involving a lost video game from the 1980s, starring Asa Butterfield and Robert Englund; Richard Linklater’s “Apollo 10 1/2” (April 1), a rotoscope-animation coming-of-age movie; and a smattering of older films such as “Blade,” “Bonnie & Clyde,” “Inception” and “How to Train Your Dragon” (all April 1).

Also of note: The fifth (and most recent) season of “Better Call Saul,” the “Breaking Bad” spinoff, drops April 4, two weeks before the final season begins on cable’s AMC.
