April is a month of premieres, and the platforms know it. Although we have had three months of great series and movie releases, with special attention to The Mandalorian, The Last of Us or Ted Lasso, what is to come is, if possible, more exciting.

Netflix, Apple TV+, Disney+ and HBO Max all have some very interesting surprises in store for April. But the most powerful of them all is in store for Amazon Prime Video. At the end of the month it will launch Citadel, the second most expensive series in history after The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power.

But let’s take a look at everything that this month of April will bring us, as there is a lot to see and it will be very interesting.

Netflix releases in April

Some of the most interesting premieres of the month come from Netflix, which takes the lead as the one that will launch the most series in the coming weeks. We have renewals -surprisingly for this platform-, national and international fictions. There is something for everyone. We leave you with some of the most interesting ones.

The Last Kingdom: Seven Kings Must Die

The Last Kingdom has become one of the most interesting series in the entire Netflix catalog. The medieval series ended with the fifth season, but now a spin-off movie is being released in which we will follow the story of Uhtred in new epic battles of power.

Premiere date: 04/14


An interesting series to be released by Netflix in April is Transatlantic, a new period gem that aims to repeat the platform’s previous successes. In it, we travel to Marseille in 1940 to meet two Americans who set up an operation to help artists and other refugees who want to flee Europe in World War II.

Sweet Tooth – Season 2

A nice surprise from Netflix in 2021 was Sweet Tooth, a series that adapts Jeff Lemire’s comic book and tells the story of a post-apocalyptic world in which there are hybrids of humans and animals. After the success of the first episodes, the second season is expected to follow suit.

HBO Max releases in April

The platform has been having a blast for several months in the strongest possible way. At the beginning of the year it premiered The Last of Us, which has quickly become the series of the season -and the one that has more chances to take it all in future awards-. And just recently it released the latest season of Succession, which it hopes will live up to its audience. But April will also be a very interesting month for the VOD platform.

Barry – Season 4

Barry’s hilarious story tells how a former Marine turned assassin ends up taking a keen interest in the performing arts and becoming an actor when he gets a job in Los Angeles. This changes his outlook on life forever.

Premiere date: 04/17

Featured HBO Max releases in April
  • Barry (S4 / Final) – 04/17

This new platform has just landed in our country. And yet, it has an exquisite catalog. Beyond Twin Peaks and The Offer, two of the great releases that have come with SkyShowtime, the idea of the VOD service is to increasingly expand its catalog. And for this it has few but very interesting premieres. In April, there will be one that will make fans of toupees and leather jackets tremble.
