Welcome to an early look at what’s headed your way on Netflix in April 2021 in the United States. This preview will be updated with all the new releases set to hit throughout the month as and when we learn of them.
Want to see just the Netflix Originals coming in April 2021? We’ve got a dedicated preview of the Originals on the way here and also keep an eye on the removals for April 2021 too.
This list will look a little thin to begin with but as we move through the month, we’ll be getting more and more releases lined up for the month of April. We’ll try and keep this post updated every other day with new releases (unless there’s nothing to report). Netflix will release a PR list later in the month which we suspect may come on the week starting March 22nd.
