What’s coming soon to Netflix UK in April 2018?
Staff Reporter | On 20, Mar 2018Reading time: 11 mins
Netflix has a cracking Easter lined up for 2018, with April offering a bunch of eggs-cellent arrivals that are far more impressive than these terrible puns.
It’s a month of bidding farewell to a number of weekly favourites, from Jane the Virgin Season 4 and Designated Survivor Season 2 to Suits Season 7 and Black Lightning’s first run. But it’s also a month for unwrapping new televisiual treats, from the long-awaited musical episode of Riverdale and the return of Brazilian thriller 3% to the final ever episodes of Mad Men. But most of all, April is about one thing: Lost in Space, Netflix’s new blockbusting update of the classic family sci-fi, with Toby Stephens, Molly Parker and Parker Posey leading The Robinsons into space. Throw in a whole circus-load of Monty Python, weekly doses of RuPaul and a dessert-heavy season of Chef’s Table and you have a smaller selection of titles compared to March’s bumper pack, but a cracking selection of entertainment nonetheless.
Here’s what’s coming soon to Netflix UK in April 2018:
