The past few months have been non-stop at Netflix as the nation’s favorite source of streaming entertainment continued to release dozens upon dozens of high-quality original movies and TV series. March alone saw Netflix release 55 different pieces of original content, and you should definitely scroll through our roundup to ensure that you didn’t miss anything. Highlights include full seasons of Castlevania, Paradise PD, Kingdom, Elite, and Ozark season 3, which premieres at the end of the month. Mark Wahlberg’s first Netflix movie was released this month as well, an action flick called Spenser Confidential.

As responsible Americans across the country strap in for at least a month of self-quarantining, we’re going to need all that great original content to help pass the time. Luckily for all of us, Netflix isn’t slowing down at all in April. The streaming media giant will add 39 new licensed movies to its catalog on April 1st alone, and plenty more terrific additions are sprinkled throughout the month. Definitely check out Netflix’s full April 2020 release calendar to see them all, but in this post, we’re going to focus solely on all the new original content headed to Netflix this month.

Over the course of the month in April, Netflix plans to release a total of 53 different originals, including movies, full seasons of TV shows, comedy specials, and other special features. The fun starts on Friday, April 3rd when Netflix will debut five new originals including Money Heist: The Phenomenon, a film that dives into Netflix’s smash hit Spanish-language heist show. Other high-profile releases include season 2 of Ricky Gervais’s excellent dramedy After Life, season 4 of The Last Kingdom, and the premiere season of Mindy Kaling’s new show Never Have I Ever.
