Lost in Space and Scarface: What’s new on Netflix this April

New original series Legend of the Monkey, a Lost in Space reboot, and plenty of classics are headed to Netflix this April.

Lost in Space

It’s going to be a great April for Netflix subscribers. But let’s check out the options…

Option A – the outside; it’s harsh, still quite wintery for some bizarre reason and there are definitely bears.

Option B – Inside: reasonably warm, no bears and of course, Netflix.

We don’t know about you guys, but we’re definitely vying for ‘Option B’ right now. It’s a decision that is made much easier by all the great content coming to Netflix this April. And obviously, the lack of bears.

Sin City
Sin City

If you haven’t seen the likes of Seven, Scarface and Sin City, then firstly – what are you doing with your life?

Secondly, you’ll have a chance to rectify that on April 1st as they are all arriving to the streaming service.

There is also a treasure chest worth of Netflix originals arriving during the month of April.

Lost in Space Season 1

These include a serialized version of Lost in Space, which will be arriving on the 13th. Before you ask, the answers are yes, this is a reboot of the Matt Leblanc film which was another reboot of an older TV show and no, Matt Leblanc has nothing to do with this production.

If you never intended to ask either of those questions, then apologies – but we do like to cater to all the Leblancians (we reckon that’s what his fans call themselves) here at GEEKSP.IN.

The New Legends of Monkey
Production still from ‘The Legend of Monkey’.

Another one that caught our eye is New Legends of Monkey, which is hitting our Netflix screens on April 27th. It has ran full-steam into a bit of a problem due to ‘white-washing’ criticism, but it does look like it could be fun.

The inner kid in you will be delighted to see the likes of the Iron Giant, Despicable Me 3 and The Flintstones arrive during the month. There are a ton of other arrivals too, which are all listed below.
