What's New on Netflix in April: Outer Banks, Extraction, and More

Check out the trailers for everything new this month

Amanda Bell

If there's one source of constancy to be found in the world right now, it's that Netflix is still busy churning out all kinds of new original shows, movies, and specials, and the timing couldn't be better for us all to have ample streaming options.

The latest new addition is Outer Banks, a new drama series about a tight-knit group of teens uncovering a long-buried secret that takes them on a wild adventure, which arrived on the streaming service April 15. Count on that show to become the subject of many, many memes once everyone has time to digest the beachy soap.

The streaming service is also bringing some new Chris Hemsworth action into our homes on Friday, April 24, and this movie looks like a total rush. Extraction, directed by Sam Hargrave, stars Hemsworth as a black market mercenary who's hired to rescue the kidnapped son of an international crime boss. Meanwhile, Ana de Armas' knives will also be out (probably) in Sergio, a pic directed by Greg Barker. Wagner Moura stars as a U.N. diplomat who wants to spend a quiet life with the woman he loves (Armas) but is given one more life-or-death assignment in Baghdad. The film premieres on Netflix on Friday, April 17.

The Best TV Shows and Movies to Watch on Netflix in April

There are some titles which have already rolled out from Netflix's April 2020 additions list. Ed Helms and Taraji P. Henson headline a film about a Detroit cop who teams up with his girlfriend's 11-year-old to take down a ruthless criminal in Coffee & Kareem, which premiered on April 3, and the fourth season of Money Heisthas also now arrived, as has Netflix's new series Brew Brothers.

As for non-original offerings, April also sees the addition of Community Seasons 1-6 and movies like The Social Network, The Hangover, and The Matrix, so check out everything Netflix has to offer throughout the month below, along with trailers for all of the new original films, shows, and specials.
