What’s Coming To Netflix: April 2021

It’s finally spring, and do you know what that means? Warmer weather and longer days that can be spent watching Netflix at the park or beach. With the spring semester coming to an end and a much-needed break happening for most people, Netflix is the place to go for all new titles that are sure to take your mind off of finals. April is the most extensive list I’ve reported since being a writer at Her Campus, which means that I’m positive anyone will be able to find their next binge-watch.
