Netflix is adding more than 40 new shows and movies on April 1, including Community, the Matrix franchise, and much more. Check out the full list here!

With the beginning of a new month upon us, that means a ton of new movies and shows will be added to Netflix. On April 1, Netflix is adding more than 40 new shows and movies to give you plenty to watch while you’re social-distancing.

While most of the content isn’t brand new, it is new to Netflix and maybe it’s new to you as well. You can check out a movie you’ve never seen before, catch up on a series you love, or binge-watch a new season of a favorite show.

With all of us stuck in our houses, April will be all about finding things to watch that are both interesting and take up time in a long day. Luckily, there are lots of options in the Netflix lineup this month, including the whole Matrix franchise.

What better way to spend a Wednesday afternoon than watching all three Matrix films while you’re working from home? It’s certainly better than getting lost in the news nowadays. It will also get you ready for whenever the fourth film comes out.

If you’re more of a TV fan, you can watch all six seasons of Community. While the show wasn’t saved by Netflix the way some fans wanted, they will be streaming all the available episodes. Taking a break to watch a funny show is just the kind of self-care we all need.

Other notable movies and shows coming out today include all four Lethal Weapon movies starring Danny Glover and Mel Gibson, season 4 of Nailed It! with host Nicole Byer, Perks of Being a Wallflower starring Logan Lerman and Emma Watson, and Jessica Chastain’s Molly’s Game about a woman who runs high-stakes poker games and becomes a target of the FBI.

Netflix is also adding a few new Netflix originals, including How to Fix a Drug Scandal and The Iliza Shlesinger Sketch Show. If you need a new docuseries after Tiger King, How to Fix a Drug Scandal is a must-watch! And, if you’re a fan of comedy, check out The Iliza Shlesinger Sketch Show!
