Get a load of these fresh titles.

The days are getting colder as we move towards April, not that anyone can tell because we’re all stuck inside. Don’t despair, it simply means more time to indulge in the fresh content Netflix will be streaming for us in April. Whether you’re in need of an after-dinner film, wild animations to take your mind off things, reality TV to escape into, or something to stimulate your mind during your down time, Netflix has you covered. Here’s what we’re excited about watching next month.

Brews Brothers

Creative sibling duo Greg Schaffer and Jeff Schaffer have worked on That ’70s Show and Notes From the Underbelly, Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm, respectively. Brews Brothers is an original sitcom about two estranged brothers, both geniuses in their brewing abilities, who find themselves running a brewery together. Netflix says about the show, “A lot of times in a show you see two people who complete each other. These two don’t even make a full person”.

It comes to Netflix on Friday April 10.

Chris D’Elia: No Pain

It’s times like these we need to something – or someone – to laugh at more than ever. The irreverent, iconic, and cynical comedian, Chris D’Elia is back with yet another comedy special. If you don’t already know him, he’s the dudebro who turns his inappropriate and haywire stream-of-consciousness into endearing and captivating comedy – even when it’s borderline offensive. He promises it’s the best special he’s ever done.

It hits Netflix on Tuesday April 14.

The Innocence Files

One for the true crime fiends, this docuseries comprises hour-long stories from eight cases of wrongful conviction the Innocence Project has worked to overturn. They’re now being brought to the screen for some of the most important, groundbreaking television you will see on Netflix. This global original includes the stories of Chester Hollman III, Kenneth Wyniemko, Alfred Dewayne Brown and more.

Too Hot To Handle

Get ready to see a dating show like you’ve never seen before. “No kissing, no heavy petting, and no self-gratification of any kind,” are the rules explained by Netflix in Too Hot To Handle. Any time these rules are broken, the $100,000 grand prize goes down. Netflix is keeping this wonder under wraps for the moment, with no trailer released yet. It’s exotic, erotic, and luxurious dating made for the age of social-distancing.

It comes to Netflix on Friday April 17.

Rising High

If The Wolf of Wall Street and Million Dollar Listing had a German lovechild, this film would be it. Get ready to lease your time to greed, gorgeous real estate and great characters. This drama, which is based on real-life, will be sure to get your heart racing as you follow the rise and fall of a young man and his shady partner. And it’s set in one of the most intriguing cities in the world – Berlin.

Another one for fans of foreign art, this Korean series is a cautionary tale of a group of students who become involved in the dangerous world of crime.
