Top 3 new Netflix movies and shows to stream in April 2022

A new month means new Netflix movies and shows – and we’re spoilt for choice this April. First up, there’s a new batch of Netflix Originals hitting the streamer, including Judd Apatow-directed pandemic comedy The Bubble and high school comedy drama Metal Lords, the next project from Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. 

Meanwhile, Natasha Lyonne returns for the long-awaited Russian Doll season 2, Marty and Wendy Byrde (played by Jason Bateman and Laura Linney) are back for Ozark season 4 part 2, AKA the show’s grand finale, and Spanish drama Elite returns for season 5. 

In the US, the Blade trilogy is coming to the streamer, along with other movies like Nightcrawler, Full Metal Jacket, and Saving Private Ryan. Across the pond, UK viewers can catch new episodes of Better Call Saul with the weekly arrival of season 6, along with recent film releases like Pet Sematary and The Goldfinch.

The Bubble – April 1

The Bubble is a pandemic comedy with a twist, following a group of actors stuck in a pandemic bubble at a hotel as they try to finish a studio franchise movie (and, according to some, inspired by the making of Jurassic World 3). Directed by Judd Apatow, the A-list cast includes Pedro Pascal, Karen Gillan, Maria Bakalova, Iris Apatow, Fred Armisen, David Duchovny, Keegan-Michael Key, and Leslie Mann.

Russian Doll season 2 – April 20

Time loop comedy-drama Russian Doll is back for season 2. Series creator and star Natasha Lyonne has previously revealed that season 2 picks up four years after the end of season 1, when Nadia (Lyonne) and Alan (Charlie Barnett) “must sift through their pasts via an unexpected time portal located in one of Manhattan’s most iconic locales.” Schitt’s Creek star Annie Murphy and District 9 star Sharlto Copley have also joined the cast for season 2.

Ozark season 4 part 2 – April 29

Jason Bateman and Laura Linney return for one final round as Marty and Wendy Byrde in Ozark season 4 part 2. Having climbed to the top of Navarro’s empire, the couple now have another opportunity to leave the Ozarks behind. However, some secrets won’t stay buried, while tensions remain high between Marty and Wendy and Ruth (Julia Garner) after the death of someone close to her. Things look set to go out with a bang.
