From returning favorites to brand new series, here’s what we’re excited to see come to our streaming services this spring!
March had a lot of new shows from true-crime sagas to new adventures. In April, some long-awaited favorites are set to return. With COVID delays having impacted production, some of these have been off our screens for years. There are also new star-powered shows that are sure to be hits!
Better Call Saul – April 18, AMC
Everyone’s favorite sleazy attorney is back. Saul Goodman, first seen on Breaking Bad, and his partner in crime Kim Wexler return to the screen after a two-year break. With Kim threatening to break bad, the lines between legal and illegal activity are going to grow even more blurred. There’s still the conclusion to lead right into Breaking Bad, but we’re just happy to see Odenkirk again after his health incident on set.
Russian Doll, April 20, Netflix
It’s been a while since Russian Doll S1, the clever new spin on Groundhog Day with Natasha Lyonne. She spent S1 trapped in a time loop at her birthday party and met a mysterious stranger also trapped in a similar loop. After the finale altered the rules of the game, fans have been waiting for over 3 years to see what happens next. Especially with the released teaser promising a new level of time-shifting.
Ozark, April 29th Netflix
Ozark debuted part 1 of its fourth and final season earlier this year to massive buzz and acclaim. Following the Bryde family and their crime saga in Missouri, this is an eagerly anticipated part two. Especially given how part one ended. And to see more of breakout star Julia Garner, fresh off Inventing Anna. It’s sure to be a buzzy conclusion to one of Netflix’s biggest hits.
The Flight Attendant, April 21st – HBO Max
One of HBO Max’s earliest hits, The Flight Attendant, starring Kaley Cuoco returns for Season 2, a year and a half after its premiere. While Cassie already went through her fair share of ordeals in S1, the S2 trailer promises even more madness to come, and the return of everyone’s favorite characters (plus Sharon Stone).
Barry, April 24th, HBO/HBO Max
The long-awaited S3 of Bill Hader’s dark hitman comedy is here. The last episodes premiered in May of 2019, so it’s been a long wait to see the aftermath of Barry’s actions in the crushing S2 finale. But on the lighter side, this also means more of Henry Winkler’s acting coach and Anthony Carrigan’’s NoHoHank.
While those are the shows we can’t wait to get back into. These are some shows we are highly anticipating diving into.
