Ready for something new to watch on Netflix? A ton of new movies and shows hit the streaming service this week. Check out the full list here!

A new week is here and that means a bunch of stuff is being added to Netflix. Somehow, May arrives this week (how did April go by so fast?) and as happens every first of the month, the streaming service brings in tons of new stuff to watch. Whether you’re looking for a new season of an already popular Netflix Original or a new Netflix series, there’s something for everyone.

Looking to dive into a historical drama? Season 4 of The Last Kingdom comes out on Sunday, April 26. The show follows Uhtred, a Saxon who was raised by Vikings as he fights to take back what is rightfully his. This season deals with how alliances change after the death of Alfred the Great and Uhtred will finally decide the time has come to take on his uncle and fight for his home. But will things go as he plans? You’ll have to watch to find out.

Looking for something a little lighter in tone? Mindy Kaling’s newest show, Never Have I Ever, hits Netflix on Monday, April 27. The show, inspired by Mindy Kaling’s childhood, focuses on an Indian-American teenager as she figures out who she wants to be and what she wants to do with her life. More specifically, she wants to go from being an outcast to one of the most popular girls in school. Things don’t work out exactly as she planned. This show looks hilarious!
