New on Netflix in April

New on Netflix in April


A new month brings a slew of new shows to Netflix. From stand-up comedy, to science, and a revival of a cult classic, April is shaping up to be a disastrous month for productivity. Here’s what the Blackfire Research Team is excited to binge-watch in April.

The sharp wit, self-deprecating, morality skewering comedian, Louis CK, is back on Netflix for a new Stand Up Comedy Special. “Louis CK: 2017,” which begins streaming today (April 4), is on track to be just as clever and entertaining as his earlier work. The “Louie” star has also signed on for a second Stand Up Special to be released sometime later this year.

Robot Roll Call! April 14 marks the triumphant return of cult classic TV show, “Mystery Science Theater 3000.” The relaunch marks the show’s eleventh season, which creator Joel Hodgson funded through a Kickstarter campaign, raising roughly $6 Million to produce 14 new episodes. New host Jonah – who’s been abducted by mad scientists (played by Patton Oswalt and Felicia Day) – joins robots Crow and Tom Servo as they watch and riff on B-list films as their only source of entertainment in Outer Space.

Bill! Bill! Bill! Every 90’s kid’s favorite scientist, Bill Nye, returns to television with an all new Netflix Original Series. “Bill Nye Saves The World,” which premieres on April 21, tackles a different scientific topic in each episode, ranging from Global Warming to GMOs. Accompanying Bill is a pack of celebrity scientists and science lovers, like supermodel Karlie Kloss and Food Network personality, Alton Brown. “Bill Nye Saves The World” looks equally entertaining and educational.

These are just some of the shows debuting on Netflix in April.
