The brighter evenings are here, but that doesn’t mean Netflix is slowing down.

In April, the streaming service has its busiest month of the year so far thanks to the arrival of some high-profile new films and TV shows.

Hoping to crack the Netflix top 10 is superhero comedy Thunder Force, which unites Melissa McCarthy and Octavia Spencer, as well as Shadow and Bone, the first adaptation of Leigh Bardugo’s fantasy Grisha trilogy.

Then there’s Run, Aneesh Chaganty’s horror thriller following a teenager whose overprotective mother (Sarah Paulson) uses the fact she has a wheelchair as a justifiable reason to keep her locked away from outside world.

Find the full list of every movie and TV show coming to Netflix in April below.
