What’s Coming to Netflix in April 2018

A few classic television shows and family movies are headed to Netflix this April.

Right on schedule with the robot’s cameo in “Ready Player One,” the ’90s animated movie “The Iron Giant” will be added to the streaming service at the start of April. Other movies adults and children can add to their queues are “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest,” “The Flintstones,” and “Despicable Me 3.”

My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman: Jay-Z,” the next installment in the comedian’s show, as well as the latest episodes of “The Joel McHale Show With Joel McHale” will also be available on Netflix. McHale’s comedy series streams every Sunday. Slapstick enthusiasts can also view “Seth Rogen’s Hilarity for Charity” event on April 6.

Football fans can watch “Friday Night Lights,” but don’t be fooled — it’s the movie that is being added to the platform, not the television show that has yet to return.
