April! The days are getting longer, the weather is getting warmer, but will it stop us from watching all of our favourite Netflix shows? Unlikely! There are some fabulous new picks coming to the streaming service in the coming weeks, and if you love prank shows, true crime documentaries or fantasy dramas, you're in luck! Enjoy... 

Prank Encounter

Stranger Things star Gaten Matarazzo stops killing demagorgens in exchange for scaring people for big laughs in his cheeky prank show. Each other will take two strangers on a "ride of a lifetime" where "fear meets funny", and has been described as "the most elaborate hidden camera prank show ever devised". Hopefully we'll never be picked as unsuspecting participants! 


Worn Stories

This beautiful new show opens the closets of a diverse group of people to reveal a treasure-trove of tales about the meaning behind articles of clothing. The synopsis reads: "Be it a pair of boots symbolising survival, a dress that’s come to stand for recovery, or a uniform that reaffirms an identity, the series illuminates the lives of the wearers through stories about cherished articles of clothing."

This is a Robbery

In 1990, the biggest art heist in history was successfully pulled off, and works by Rembrandt, and Vermeer among others, with a combined worth of half a billion dollars, were stole and never recovered. So where are those famous works of art now? Who took them? And will they ever be returned? This four-part documentary will be trying to answer all of our questions and more.
