New Netflix Shows and Movies (April 2022)

Plus: Everything coming to Netflix, and everything leaving Netflix in April

April is almost over, but Netflix still has plenty of big shows coming out this month. The biggest are the new seasons of Jason Bateman's crime thriller Ozark and Jane Fonda's golden years friendship comedy Grace and Frankie, both of which will be released on April 29. But it's bittersweet news, as they will be the final seasons of both shows. Also of note is the gay teen drama series Heartstopper, which is out on April 22. 

Previously out this month is Netflix's big new reality hit The Ultimatum: Marry or Move On, which gave people who aren't ready for marriage enough pressure and the potential for clout to get married, and Barack Obama's Our Great National Parks, in which the former president takes you around the world's greatest nature reserves. And out today is Season 2 of Natasha Lyonne's Russian Doll.

Below you'll find our picks for the best shows and movies to watch on Netflix in April, as well as lists of everything coming to and leaving Netflix in April.

Better Call Saul Season 5 (April 4)

One of TV's only A+ shows kicks off its final season April 18 on AMC. But if you're a cord-cutter who catches up with the show on Netflix, Season 5 arrives in early April. It's one of the Breaking Bad prequel's best, as tense and thrilling as ever. If you already watched Season 5, it still might be a good idea to refresh your memory with a rewatch before the Season 6 premiere, as it's been two years since Saul last aired. [Trailer]

The Ultimatum: Marry or Move On(April 6) 

This reality series comes from the creators of reality dating sensation Love Is Blind and is also hosted by Nick and Vanessa Lachey. It has a premise nearly as gripping as its predecessor: six couples where one person is ready to get married and the other isn't totally sure all live in a house together. They're either going to come out of it married or broken up — or they might get together with someone else in the house. So yes, this is a show you watch if you want to see other people absolutely blow up their lives. [Trailer]

Our Great National Parks (April 13)

Barack Obama executive-produces and narrates this nature docuseries from the makers of Blue Planet II, taking viewers on a tour of national parks all over the world, including in countries with personal significance to him, Indonesia and Kenya. If you've ever wanted to hear a former President talk about sloths, this is for you. It would be great if he opens his narration by saying, "Let me be clear, I love parks." [Trailer]

Russian Doll Season 2 (April 20)

The best show of early 2019 is back for a second season. Season 1 ended so perfectly and with such finality that it would have been a great limited series, but creators Natasha Lyonne, Leslye Headland, and Amy Poehler had an idea for Season 2, and I have faith that they know what they're doing. Season 2 is set four years after Manhattanites Nadia (Lyonne) and Alan (Charlie Barnett) escaped from their death-loop, and now they're on a new sci-fi sadcom adventure where they encounter a time portal that leads to a fate even worse than endless death. [Trailer

Grace and Frankie Season 7, Part 2 (April 29)

Netflix's longest-running show ever comes to a close after seven seasons and 94 episodes. Dolly Parton guest-stars, forming a Voltron of outspoken, iconic women over 75 with stars Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin. Netflix may not ever make a live-action show that runs for seven seasons again, so this is truly the end of an era. [Trailer

Ozark Season 4, Part 2 (April 29)

Speaking of ends of eras, Ozark, one of Netflix's only Emmy-contending drama series, comes to an end with the second half of Season 4. If I were a betting man, I would not put money on both of the Byrdes surviving until the credits roll for the last time. [Trailer]
