Netflix Australia may have just deleted 200 movies and TV shows, but there's no need to cry into your beer just yet. In April, we're getting a cavalcade of new premium content to binge on - including over 40 new Netflix Originals! Here's the full list.
Fans of Netflix's in-house programming are in for a treat next month with almost all the TV shows falling under the 'Netflix Originals' umbrella. There are also some decent third-party movies to rewatch and/or check out for the first time.
It's that time of the month again when Netflix deletes a bunch of third-party content off its service. Normally, we'd advise you to watch these movies and TV shows while you still have the chance - but this week, that's mathematically impossible.
Over the next three days, Netflix will remove over 200 titles totalling thousands of hours of entertainment. Here's the full list.
April's biggest release is probably season 2 of the popular supernatural teen drama Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. There's also the amazing looking documentary Our Planet narrated by David Attenborough, an animated reboot of Ultraman, A Quiet Place "homage" The Silence, a new comedy special from Kevin Hart and Unicorn Store starring Brie Larson of Captain Marvel fame.
On the licenced content front, there's The Exorcist, Bridget Jones's Diary, American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace and the Oscar (non) winning musical La La Land.
