While many movies’ theatrical releases have been postponed because of coronavirus, there’s no lack of great movies and shows to stream on Netflix while practicing social distancing and self-isolation this month.

If you’re looking for a little distraction from the uncertainty in the world right now, the streaming platform has plenty of comedic offerings, including Middleditch & Schwartz, a three-part special starring pals Thomas Middleditch (Silicon Valley) and Ben Schwartz (Parks and Recreation);each segment is an improv performance based on a random audience suggestion, resulting in some seriously zany scenarios. All three segments drop on April 21.

There’s a wide range of films hitting Netflix this month as well, from Alan Yang‘s multi-generational original drama Tigertail, which will premiere on April 10, to critically acclaimed romance The Artist. Notable additions include The Killing of a Sacred Deer, Django Unchained, and Hail, Caesar!

Those looking to get their documentary fix might consider A Secret Love, which tells the real-life, seven-decade queer love story between Terry Donahue, a player for the women’s professional baseball league that was the inspiration for A League of Their Own, and her longtime partner, Pat Henschel. How to Fix a Drug Scandal and Murder to Mercy: The Cyntoia Brown Story are also titles to look for in April.

For anyone who’s using their time in quarantine to flex their skills in the kitchen, take inspiration (and perhaps lessons on what not to do) from the return of beloved baking show Nailed It!, back for its fourth season on April 1. It will be joined by Nadiya’s Time to Eat and Cooking with Cannabis, both Netflix original series, on April 29 and April 20, respectively. And for those who couldn’t get enough of Netflix’s reality dating show, Love Is Blind, released in February, there’s another original (and outrageous) reality dating show, Too Hot to Handle, hitting the streaming service on April 17.

Here’s everything coming to Netflix — and everything leaving — in April 2020.
