What’s New on Netflix in April 2021

Ever since Game of Thrones rewrote HBO’s fortunes and became a worldwide phenomenon, Netflix has been chasing its own subscriber-based adaptation of the fantasy blockbuster. They had some success in 2019 with the first highly memorable season of The Witcher , but the streaming empire can’t stand on one foot. So, in April, they try again with Shadow & Bone (April 23), based on Lee Bardugo’s mega-popular young adult novel series. It’s an ambitious gambit – Harry Potter and Twilight aside, fantastic YA wasn’t the best incubator for adapting hits – but the streamer is trying to win fans over by giving them whatever they want right away: the show will actually adapt two related novels set in the same world, Grisha’s trilogy (a more traditional story of growing up ) and the duology Six Ravens (a robbery story about the theft of a magical object in the style of Ocean’s Eleven ). Will it work? The trailer looks a little basic – lots of blue fire and ominous voiceovers – but the production value is undeniably top notch:

Other Highlights of the Month: The Power of Thunder (April 9), an action-comedy starring Melissa McCarthy and Octavia Spencer, hopefully more spy and less Tammy (another directed by McCarthy’s husband Ben Falcone) ; Stowaway Bus (April 22), a science fiction film with great cast – Anna Kendrick, Daniel Dae Kim, Toni Collette – and a grim premise (deep space crew discovers another passenger whose presence puts their carefully calibrated mission in jeopardy), apparently borrowed from one of the most famous stories in science fiction ; The Mitchells Vs. Machines (April 30), a silly looking animated robot apocalypse from the Into the Spider-Verse development team; and the second season of the reality show Circle (April 14), which, unlike Netflix, will air episodes on a weekly basis rather than in one big episode.

Here’s a list of everything that is coming (and leaving) streaming service in April.
