Netflix is always producing brand new content and April is no different as there are some gripping and addictive TV shows on offer throughout the month.

Whether it’s a dystopian drama, a political thriller or just a bit of light relief comedy, the streaming service has got it all this spring.

These shows are bound to get you binge watching while you wait for the weather to warm up and the rain to break for just a few weeks.

Trivia Quest – Available now

Interactivity seems to be one of the things people are crying out for Netflix to get more on board with after the success of Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, which allowed people to choose how the show panned out.

Now it seems the streaming service are trying it out again, but this time with a quiz-style format in their daily ‘episode’ of Trivia Quest throughout the month.

And it isn’t just aimed at kids, adults can give it a go as well to keep their brain in check.

The Last Bus – Available now

This has long been a nightmare for many, but what would happen if the robots took over comes to life in The Last Bus.

But it’s not just robots, it’s machines with AI, which is even worse – and that’s what a group of mismatched kids have to battle with when they realise they are pretty much the only humans left.

They try to find the creator of the machine intelligence to find out what happened and why their world has turned into a dystopian one.

Dirty Lines – Released April 8th, 2022

Don’t let the subtitles put your off from Dirty Lines because it promises to be a really good watch.

The show is set in the 1980s in Amsterdam and it focuses upon the start of the phone sex industry by two brothers and a college student who stumbles into the business to start her new career.

Once the money starts rolling in and the opportunities to expand are endless, that’s when the brothers start to become overwhelmed with their newfound fortune and they start to question their own sexual desires.

Hard Cell – Released April 12th, 2022

Catherine Tate is back and this time she’s created a show based around the personalities in a woman’s prison, in which she plays multiple characters.

It’s a documentary-style format which focusses on an events planner turned women’s prison governor who strives to make it a better place, which includes putting on a musical.

But of course, it wouldn’t be a Catherine Tate show if there wasn’t a big helping of comedy – and viewers will not be disappointed.

Anatomy of a Scandal – Released April 15th, 2022

Parliamentary minister James Whitehouse is a happily married man with a seemingly perfect life – but it isn’t all it seems.

Whitehouse is accused by his wife of having an affair and is accused by the Crown Prosecution Service of a shocking crime.

Not only does this series have a gripping and intense storyline, but the cast are on another level – Sienna Miller, Rupert Friend and Michelle Dockery all play main roles – it’s going to be such a thrilling watch.

Heartstopper – Released April 22nd, 2022

Heartstopper seems like just another teen high school show at first glance, but it’s much more than that.

Charlie and Nick strike up a friendship, but they soon realise there may be more to their chemistry than just friends.

Charlie’s friends try to warn him that Nick might not feel the same, but after Nick starts to subtly send messages that he feels the same before he turns up at Charlie’s door in the rain, it becomes clear that his love isn’t unrequited.
