A new month means a new crop of licensed and original movies and shows arriving on Netflix, and saying farewell to many others. We present the full list of titles for the upcoming month below, but first, let's scan for highlights. If you want more viewing options, check out our rankings of the best Netflix Original shows of 2020 and best Netflix Original movies of 2020, as well as our lists of great movies currently streaming on Netflix and binge-worthy TV shows currently streaming on Netflix.

Get excited, sci-fi and fantasy fans, because you're about to have a good April with the number of genre shows and movies headed to Netflix. Not only does Stowaway, the outer-space thriller starring Anna Kendrick and Toni Collette, arrive, the streaming service is filling out its big-budget fantasy series slate with the premiere of Shadow and Bone, an adaptation of Leigh Bardugo's popular Grisha book series. Plus, the highly anticipated anime Yasuke, about a Black samurai (who actually existed!) and featuring voice work from LaKeith Stanfield, becomes available. If adventure stories aren't the vibe, you'll also be able to stream new star-studded movies like the horror flick Things Heard & Seen starring Amanda Seyfried and the Western Concrete Cowboy featuring Idris Elba and Stranger Things' Caleb McLaughlin, as well as popular favorites like Legally Blonde. See what else you can watch in April below.
