After Life: Season 1 trailer

You might be relying on Netflix now more than ever for new titles to watch.

With the country in partial lockdown due to the spread of coronavirus, people are on the hunt for things to occupy them – and fortunately, the streaming service has a bursting list of films and television shows being added to its library in April.

Originals wise, it’s a quieter month for returning shows, with Ricky Gervais’s After Life sitting top of the heap. But, just like with Cheer and Tiger King, it’s the documentaries– including Brew Brothers and The Innocence Files – that could prove to be your next binge watches.

When it comes to the licenced content, though, Netflix has you sorted. Among the many things joining this month are the remaining Studio Ghibli films that haven’t yet been added, all six seasons of Community and Will Ferrell comedy Blades of Glory.

Find a full list of everything being added to Netflix in the UK in April below – find the US list here.
