What’s new on Netflix Australia for April 2020

As the number of shows and movies available to stream in Australia continues to grow at an impressive rate, it can be tough to keep up with all the new additions to each streaming service each month.

We’ve all come to anticipate a new stable of Netflix Originals releases each month, but figuring out which shows they are and when exactly they become available isn’t so easy. And what about the large number licensed shows and films that are made available to stream, if only for a limited time?

In an effort to keep you informed of the best shows and movies that are in the process of being added to Netflix, we’ll be bringing you an updated list of what you can expect on the service on a monthly basis. 

Not only that, we’ll also be singling out the biggest releases, as well as a number of quality TV shows and films which we believe deserve your Netflixing time. 

Admittedly a light month in terms of new Originals, Netflix has made up for the fact with a slew of classic movies – here’s what’s new on Netflix in April 2020. Check out Netflix’s newest offerings below!

A reality show with a twist, Japanese series Terrace House has taken the world by storm by offering a glimpse into the lives of young people in Tokyo without the usual manufactured drama that plagues the format. Instead, we get a group of respectful young adults who speak frankly about their hopes and aspirations. Lightening things up as always is a panel of personalities who chime in a few times per episode to offer hilarious commentary on what has transpired. As we enter the third part of the current series, Ruka takes his next step, while Hana meets new rivals.

The late writer-director John Hughes delivered his crowning achievement in 1985 with The Breakfast Club, one of the most influential teen dramas of all time. The film follows five teenagers who are called in for a Saturday detention. Over the course of a full day, Claire (Molly Ringwald) the princess, Andrew (Emilio Estevez) the athlete, Bender (Judd Nelson) the criminal, Brian (Anthony Michael Hall) the brain and Allison (Ally Sheedy) the basket case each come to terms with themselves and how they perceive each other, realising that they all have more in common than they originally thought.

BlacKkKlansman (5/4/2020)

Spike Lee’s Oscar-winning BlacKkKlansman tells the true story of Ron Stallworth (John David Washington), an African American police officer in the 1970s who used his supreme conversation skills to infiltrate the Klu Klux Klan over the phone. Of course, a white officer would be needed for face-to-face meetups with the infamous hate group – enter Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver), a Jewish cop tasked with gaining the trust of the most racist organisation in America. Hilarious, thought-provoking and incredibly intense, BlacKkKlansman is Spike Lee’s best film in years.
