Feel like you’ve seen everything on Netflix?

We all know trying to choose what to watch on Netflix is one of the most difficult challenges for human beings these days.

You’ll scroll, watch trailers, add stuff to ‘My List’ and keep browsing until it’s actually too late to watch something.

It happens every single time.

But now that a new month is here, there’s a whole batch of new movies and TV series to look forward to – including some stand-out ones you’ll definitely want to set reminders for.

Here are nine new Netflix releases we’re looking forward to this April.
