What's Coming to Netflix in April 2021? Full List of Releases

The month of April will bring a ton of new originals to Netflix.

First up is the new Netflix film Concrete Cowboy, starring award-winning actor Idris Elba and rising star Caleb McLaughlin. The film, which is coming in early April, follows McLaughlin's character Cole, a rebellious teen who discovers a community of cowboys living in Philadelphia while spending the summer with his estranged father, Idris' Harp.

If comedy's on the must-watch list for April, then look no further than Melissa McCarthy, Octavia Spencer and Jason Bateman's newest film, Thunder Force, which follows an unlikely crime-fighting pair of besties who end up with astonishing superpowers after one of them mistakenly invents a special formula.

Jamie Foxx is also coming to Netflix with the new sitcom Dad Stop Embarrassing Me!. Foxx's own relationship with his daughter Corinne Foxx inspired him to create and produce the family-friendly series, in which Foxx stars as Brian, a bachelor who suddenly becomes a full-time dad to his teen daughter, Sasha (Kyla-Drew).

Plenty of older TV shows and movies will also make their way onto the streamer in April. Be on the lookout for all four seasons of Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn, and films like The Master, Rush, Legally Blonde and The Zookeeper's Wife, among several others.
