Here's What's Coming And Going From US Netflix In April 2018

April is the cruelest month, if you're a fan of Cool Runnings. The inspiring story of redemption and warm-weather bobsledding leaves Netflix on April 1. But Beethoven's Christmas Adventure arrives on Netflix the same day, just in time! But seriously, it's a good month for Netflix, especially for original series and documentaries.

Note: This list refers to the US version of Netflix. It has a different library to Australia which changes from month to month. This information is only relevant to readers who access US Netflix using a VPN. Our roundup of Australian Netflix changes will be appearing soon.

The Highlights

This month in Netflix original comedy: The April episode of My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman features Beyoncé's husband Jay-Z, plus producer Rick Rubin. The Joel McHale Show With Joel McHale streams every Sunday this month, and Kevin Smith has a new Netflix special, if that's your thing. Apparently the show Money Heist isn't a comedy, but its title is hilarious.

The Netflix-original doc Mercury 13 profiles the women who would have been some of the first U.S. astronauts. (NASA ended up choosing only male astronauts, and cosmonaut Valentina Tereshkova became the first woman in space in 1963.) In Orbiter 9, which is not a documentary, a woman who lives alone on a spaceship makes some friends.

Amateur, the story of a 14-year-old basketball player at a prep school — funded on Kickstarter and directed by No Film School founder Ryan Koo — looks cool. It has the hawk-looking guy from Sports Night in it, and Curtiss Cook, who's not famous yet but will be. You can actually watch the short film that inspired the feature film:

As for shows and films that already exist: Jane the Virgin season 4 will show up some time in April; Cabin Fever, Scarface, The Iron Giant, Seven, Speed Racer, and Cold Mountain arrive on April 1.

Also on April 1, Netflix loses American Pie, Caddyshack, Never Let Me Go, a bunch of Batman movies, and The Shawshank Redemption. And of course Cool Runnings. So move those to the top of your queue.
