We get so wrapped up in our marathon Netflix-watching sessions, it’s easy to forget lots of new shows and movies are constantly added.

Netflix April releases bring some new original series and some old favorites, giving options to please everyone who steals your account password.

Instead of watching Gilmore Girls for the tenth time (there’s always time for that next month), check out some of the most exciting hits coming to the streaming platform in April.

In no particular order, here are the top 10 shows/movies you should check out when they are added next month:

1. Girlboss
A Netflix Original Series based on Sophia Amoruso’s best-selling book of the same name.

3. Dear White People
This Netflix Original Series based on the 2014 film has already stirred up “anti-white” controversy about its subject matter, which is literally proving the point of the show.
