April showers may bring May flowers, but those rainy days are also perfect for staying indoors and tackling your Netflix queue. Think of it as streaming spring cleaning, ticking things off your watch list. To help you figure out what to stream, it's worth checking out the handy dandy list of everything leaving and coming to Netflix in April 2019. So get ready to spend a little time with Freddy, Jason, and Sabrina, the teenage witch.
Yes, it seems April on Netflix is going to get a little creepy with some classic horror villains that will force you to sleep with the lights on — courtesy of Freddy vs. Jason and Friday the 13th — and The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina Part 2, in which fans can expect Brina to walk down a much darker path than she ever has before.
For those who want their teenage fare a little less witchy, Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and its sequel are also coming to the streaming site, while Gina Rodriguez will be nursing a broken heart in the Netflix original rom-com Someone Great. And Brie Larson's directorial debut Unicorn Store, about a twenty-something dreamer, will also premiere on Netflix in April. Bonus, it's a Captain Marvel reunion, since Samuel L. Jackson also stars.
But, don't forget to make some time to check out what's leaving Netflix in April before it's too late. These precious gems include rom-coms like Silver Linings Playbook and Sex and the City: The Movie. So, alas, it's officially time to refresh your spring watchlist so do like Marie Kondo does and see what on this list sparks joy.
