It’s rare that a company can manage to revolutionize the same industry not once but twice. Netflix, however, is nothing if not a rarity. The company wasn’t the first to offer streaming movies and TV shows on the web, but it almost single-handedly popularized the concept and has played a major role in seeing millions upon millions of households in America and abroad cut the cord. Then, once countless companies began copying Netflix’s model, the company shook things up yet again. This time, Netflix proved that you don’t need to be a major network — you don’t even need to be a TV network at all — to create compelling original content.
With dozens of awards under its belt already, Netflix continues to invest billions into creating original TV series, movies, comedy specials, and documentaries. Hot on the heels of the most eagerly anticipated stand-up special of the past decade, Netflix just kicked off its biggest month ever for original releases. In this post, we’ll cover every single one of the 25 original releases Netflix has scheduled for the month of April.
Netflix has never released this much original programming in a single month before. We covered the list last month when Netflix first revealed its release schedule for April 2017, but it’s worth revisiting for two reasons. First, again, it’s the company’s biggest month ever for new TV show, movie, and comedy special releases. Second, things kicked off today with yet another big release that people have been waiting for.
Beginning right now, Netflix subscribers can stream a brand new comedy special from everyone’s favorite raunchy comic, Louis C.K. Known for his no holds barred stand-up and his masterful work as the writer and director of Pootie Tang (okay, maybe not), C.K.’s new special is an hour and fourteen minutes of comedy that is already being called some of his best stand-up in years.
You’ll find the complete list of Netflix’s 25 new originals coming this month, and the ones that have already been released have links to their Netflix pages. Titles with an asterisk are feature-length films.
