Since the revelation of release dates of Avengers: Endgame and final season of Game of Thrones last year, the world has exploded in an unmeasurable amount of anticipation of what will these two biggies bring to the screen.
How will Thanos be defeated by our Avengers in Endgame and who will finally claim the Iron Throne in GOT or will anyone survive the White Walkers?
These are very serious questions and I with the billions of people worldwide cannot wait anymore to finally get the answers.
Along with GOT and Avengers: Endgame there are plenty of other series that are coming in April and I want to share with you guys some of the fresh and old series that I cannot wait to watch This April.
Quicksand (5 April)
Where to Watch: Netflix
A new crime drama is coming my way and I honestly cannot wait to check it out. I’m obsessed with murder thrillers and more merrier if it is an international series.
Quicksand is a Swedish crime thriller based on a book of the same name, where a high school student becomes the center of attraction when a mass shooting takes place at her prep school.
Bonus: Another international teen crime drama is Elite (NETFLIX). Do give it a watch!
2. Criminal Justice (5 April)
Where to Watch: Hotstar (Premium)
Hotstar has announced it’s own ‘Hotstar Specials‘ with the remake of popular BBC series, Criminal Justice which came out in 2008. The remake of the BBC series has a power packed cast, Vikrant Masey, Pankaj Tripathi, Jackie Shroff will be seen playing important roles in the series. The series is about a cab driver (Vikrant Masey) who has been accused of rape and murder after a one-night stand with Anupriya Goenka. Pankaj Tripathi will be seen defending Vikrant Masey as he portrays him as a person who belongs to a good family with no criminal records.
Pankaj Tripathi has been making us all gaga with his serious gangster acting in his recent previous work (Mirzapur) and I can’t wait for this one.
3. The Silence (10 April)
Where to Watch: Netflix
There has been an influx of horror movies where aliens are super sensitive to sound or sight. First came “A Quiet Place”, an excellent horror/alien invasion movie which gets under your skin and literally heightens your senses. Then came Netflix’s Bird Box which also is a movie where aliens possesses your body if you just open your eyes.
Now Netflix has once again come up with another horror/alien movie which resonates quite well with the ‘A Quiet Place’ Movie. There are so many similarities like ‘the sound’ and a ‘deaf’ character in each of the movie. Stanley Tucci and Kiernan Shipka from “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” are the lead actors.
Though the trailer is very similar to ‘A Quiet Place’, it is noteworthy that the film is based on a 2015 novel, long before “A Quiet Place’ happened.
I’m quite an alien lover, so this excites me a lot, or you could you just watch it to spot the differences and similarities between the two movies.
Note: ‘A Quiet Place’ is streaming on Prime Video, if you still haven’t watch this epic alien movie.
4. You vs Wild (10 April)
Where to Watch: Netflix
Man Vs Wild’s Bear Grylls is coming to Netflix as in an interactive series ‘You vs Wild‘ where Bear Grylls will be seen in a variety of scenarios where you get to pick his next move to complete the mission.
I love watching Man vs Wild, his energy and enthusiasm is something I admire the most.
Since the wide success of Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, another movie-length interactive; Netflix is not shying away from interactive series.
Now the question is will you pick the right choices to save Bear Grylls in the new series? Good luck!
5. Black Summer (11 April)
Where to Watch: Netflix
Zombie fans anyone? This month is full of blood, gore and revenge why not keep some love aside for the Zombies.
Black Summer, a prequel series to the Z Nation series, this series will focus on the earliest days of first zombie apocalypse. The plot centers around a group of strangers who band together to survive and get back to their loved ones.
6. Game of Thrones (14 April)
Where to Watch: HBO/ Hotstar (Premium)
Need any introduction to GOT? Honestly I didn’t watch GOT till last year as I always found it too overrated because of the hype and the crazy GOT fans all over the world makes it unbearable sometimes.
But once I got the taste of Blood and War, I was unstoppable and finished the entire 7 seasons in 10 days. Now who is crazy?
Anyway, Winter has finally come which was bloody annoying to hear it throughout the series because it took 7 seasons for Winter to finally come.
And with the Great Wall being taken down by Viserion, now a White Walker Dragon and White Walkers advancing towards Man Kind. Jon Snow sleeping with his Aunt, God I cannot wait to see the face of Jon when he realizes he’s been sleeping with his Aunt.
So many juicy and hair raising moments to look out for in the Finale Season. It has almost been unbearable.
Cometh already GOT!!
7. Avengers: Endgame (26 April)
The biggest and most anticipated film since last year is the Avengers: Endgame.
Thanos’s infamous snapping of fingers wiped out most of the population from the Universe. The departure of our favorite superheroes was a tear jerker. I remember the movie theater going pin drop silence during the scene.
Now it is left to the few superheroes, our only hope to defeat Thanos and probably reverse the unimaginable effect and bringing back our lost heroes. We can only count the days till 26. Best wishes to everyone!
What do you think will happen at the end? Will we get back our superheroes? Let me know in the comments.
Two of my favorite series are coming back for a new season on Netflix. It is not yet confirmed but I’m hoping so much they set a release date in April.
The Alienist: The Angel of Darkness
If you are looking for an Old century crime then The Alienist is a brilliant, award winning series which premiered back in 2018.
The Alienist takes us back to the Victorian era where a sick serial killer, murders teenager prostitute boys in the most gruesome ways to teach everyone a lesson. Enter Dr Laszlo Kreizler, a psychologist who tries to find the killer with his team of a newspaper illustrator and the first female police officer (Dakota Fanning) in New York.
The second season is likely to be released this month but the date is not yet confirmed.
2. Money Heist (La Casa De Papel) Part III
If you haven’t watched Money Heist, what have you watch? Undoubtedly the most watched non-English series on Netflix is the Phenomenal Money Heist.
The obsession with this crime drama with the viewers cannot be explained. The Heist at the Royal Mint of Spain is nothing like any ordinary heist.
The Brain of the Heist is a Professor who has been planning this since his teenage years and recruits several die-for-money small time thieves and convicts. The planning and preparation for the heist is notable and very intelligent that baffles even the most intelligent police forces. I cannot tell you how much I love this show and was sitting on the edge till the very ending of the Part II.
For the love of God, go watch it if you haven’t, feel the adrenaline, the rush and the big dreams that all of them dreams about once getting out with 2 billion money.
Yes!! 2 billion freshly minted money. That’s enough to convince you to watch this show.
And with a new series coming, I cannot wait to know what The Professor and his team of elite thieves have in store for us.
Have you watched Money Heist?
Which movie/show you are more excited for? Let me know in the comments.
