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-boosting blockbuster fantasy adaptation. They had some success in 2019 with the first, highly memeable season of The Witcher, but a streaming empire cannot stand on a single pillar. So, in April, they are trying again with Shadow & Bone (April 23) based on a mega-popular series of young adult novels by Leigh Bardugo.

It’s an ambitious gambit—Harry Potter and Twilight aside, fantasy YA hasn’t been the best incubator for hit adaptations—but the streamer is attempting to win over fans by giving them everything they want, all at once: The show will actually adapt two related novel series set in the same world, the Grisha trilogy (a more traditional coming-of-age story) and the Six of Crows duology (a heist story about an Ocean’s Eleven-style crew stealing a magical object). Will it succeed? The trailer looks a little generic—lots of blue fire and ominous voiceovers—but the production values are undeniably top-notch:

Other interesting highlights for the month: Stowaway (April 22), a sci-fi film with a great cast—Anna Kendrick, Daniel Dae Kim, Toni Collette—and a grim premise (a crew on a deep-space voyage discovers an additional passenger whose presence puts their carefully calibrated mission in peril) seemingly borrowed from one of the most famous SF short stories ever; The Mitchells Vs. the Machines (April 30), a silly looking animated film about a robot apocalypse from the team behind Into the Spider-Verse; and the second season of the guilty pleasure reality series The Circle (April 14), which, in a change for Netflix, will release episodes week to week rather than in one big batch.

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