With so many are stuck at home due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, Netflix has never been busier. And if you’re looking for a suitable distraction, look no further as we run through everything new on Netflix this April.

First, Community seasons 1 – 6 are finally returning on April 1st, and you can already hear the chants of "six seasons and a movie" in the distance. If you’re not sure where to start with the beloved college comedy, here are the 15 best Community episodes for you to test out. Think of it as your Greendale open day! More series on their way include new seasons of Nailed It!, Hello Ninja, and Pokémon: The Series Sun & Moon.

In terms of movies, you can finally have that Lethal Weapon marathon as all four movies will be on Netflix from April 1st. Also on their way this month is the classic video game movie Mortal Kombat – which found its way into our list of the 10 best video game movies of all time – plus some stunning five-star movies such as The Social Network, Taxi Driver, and more.

We've also got a rundown of the Netflix UK highlights for the month. Not only is the streaming service dropping the final batch of Studio Ghibli films, but it's also going (almost) day-and-date on The Last Dance, a multi-part documentary on the life and career of Michael Jordan.

So, without further ado, here's everything new on Netflix this April.
