Stream On: What’s New To Netflix for April 2018

Netflix is packing this April with a full library of mid-2000s favorites and score of original content that will have you binging until next summer. There are almost 40 new series, movies and specials to choose from. Enough to keep you busy until Walgreen stop selling Easter eggs and start selling Christmas stocks.

So, about a month.

Also this month, the Robinson family returns to airwaves (or data streams) with as the reboot of Lost in Space lands at the streaming service. This high-priced series continues the Netflix tradition of big-budget, big-name series that the service loves to gamble on.

Want more?

The original Netflix series based on Oscar-nominee Boss Baby is also available this month. So there’s that.

Oscar. Nominee. Boss. Baby.

I’ll never get used to that. Now I’m sad.

If you wish to save your kids from living a life of mediocrity based on shitty cartoons, you will be given the ability to save them with The Iron Giant, the new Spy Kids series and Bill Nye: Science Guy.

Also in April, you’ll have your choice of vampire movies to choose from, ranging from late ‘80s emo bike vamp from The Lost Boys to hula-hooping bikini wearing pop stars from The Queen of the Damned.

Other horror pics new to Netflix this month include Cabin Fever and it’s sequel, Spring Fever.
