Everything Coming To Netflix, Stan And Foxtel This April

While neither Stan nor the Australian Netflix library has anything near the range of US streaming services, every month we get just a little more. Foxtel is also adding a huge number of popular titles to its on-demand streaming, and Amazon Prime is releasing its line up of original series on Prime. Read on to see all the content that will be added to their libraries during the month of April.

Netflix

This month, Netflix goes strong on its original features, continuing with weekly episodes of Riverdale, delivering a dose of science with Bill Nye Saves The World and mixing up the idea of a documentary in Casting JonBenet. The 100 is finally back for Season 3 on Australian Netflix, and you've got all you need for a scary movie night with A Nightmare On Elm Street and Lights Out.

Here are some of the highlights:

Bill Nye Saves The World

Bill Nye hosts a talk show exploring scientific issues from space exploration to fad diets. Guests join Bill Nye for lab demos and myth busting.

Riverdale

Archie's got an edge. Veronica's hiding her past. Riverdale is a little darker and a lot more interesting than it was in the days of Archie Comics.

The 100: Season 3

Set 97 years after a nuclear war has destroyed civilisation, when a spaceship housing humanity’s lone survivors sends 100 juvenile delinquents back to Earth in hopes of possibly re-populating the planet.

Casting JonBenet

Merging community reflections with performances from locals, this hybrid documentary explores the legacy of the tiny starlet's shocking murder.

Stan

Stan is continuing to be strong in exclusive TV, bringing new series of iZombie and Better Call Saul in April. On the feature length side, the first ever film shot from a first-person perspective, Hardcore Henry, arrives soon, alongside the entire Back To The Future trilogy.

Hardcore Henry:

A recently resurrected soldier named Henry must rescue his wife (Haley Bennett) from a maniacal villain in this action movie that takes place entirely from a first-person perspective.

Better Call Saul:

As the new season begins, the repercussions of Chuck’s scheme test Jimmy and Kim’s fledgling law practices – and their romance – as never before. This imminent existential threat presses Jimmy’s faltering moral compass to the limit. As the season progresses, backstories are further illuminated with nods to the “Breaking Bad” universe - including the return of Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito).

iZombie:

From the creator of 'Veronica Mars' Rob Thomas, iZombie returns for a brand new season. This year, Liv (Rose McIver) discovers there are more zombies living in Seattle than she previously believed. In fact, there is a private military contractor employing a small zombie army, and that army is preparing for the day humans learn of their existence.

Back To The Future Trilogy

Experience the future all over again! Join Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox), Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) and a time traveling DeLorean for the adventure of a lifetime as they travel to the past, present and future, setting off a time-shattering chain reaction that disrupts the space time continuum! From filmmakers Steven Spielberg, Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale, this unrivaled trilogy stands the test of time.

Finding Dory:

The friendly but forgetful blue tang fish, Dory, begins a search for her long-lost parents, and everyone learns a few things about the real meaning of family along the way.

    Does the 100 get better? I managed a few episodes but it was getting pretty bad. Teen drama with an interesting back drop.

      Yes it does. It is still pretty teen drama-ery in some parts...but the sci-fi gets you past it and eventually adults join them and it's less focussed on the angst.

      yea it gets pretty good. definitely worth a look, it will get you hooked, the teen stuff is only there for the first couple of episodes really. some of the characters are teenagers but its still pretty much an adult show.

    Is there any word on 12 monkeys season 2 release date on Netflix? I checked tonight and it's not there yet?

    Hoping for the next seasons of when calls the heart soon. Miss watching that one.
