Spring is upon us, and despite the pretty weather, there are still days where a comfy spot, cozy blanket and good Netflix binge is needed.

This month, lots of classics are being brought back, along with many new series and seasons. Here are just a few things to look for.

Comedy:

  • Kevin Hart: Irresponsible (comedy special) – Release date: April 2

Kevin Hart never fails to disappoint, and in Irresponsible, he is as funny as ever. Inspired by his own mistakes, this new special talks about Hart’s three kids and second marriage.

The popular comedian has new stories to share in his own compelling, fresh way.

  • Pineapple Express – Release date: April 1

Seth Rogen and James Franco have an undeniable bond. As one of the best onscreen duos, Pineapple Express is where their fame took off and leaves audiences with funny but stupid humor, which is exactly the point.

Rom-Coms:

  • The Perfect Date – Release date: April 12

One name: Noah Centineo. Social media has been going crazy over the new heartthrob, and Netflix is no exception.

The Perfect Date is Centineo’s fourth coming-of-age movie on Netflix and has great reviews. Desperate to pay for college, the boy begins offering his services as the perfect date. Things get complicated once real feelings come into play.

  • The Ugly Truth – Release date: April 25

In a more adult, very sarcastic, somewhat raunchy and overwhelmingly funny chick flick, The Ugly Truth remains high on the list of best rom-coms. Katherine and Heigl and Gerard Butler do not disappoint.

Series:

  • New Girl: season 7 – Release date: April 10

If New Girl has not been at the top of your watch list, it needs to be. Now that last season is on its way to streaming, there is even more of a reason to start the series.

Watch as the unexpected, very unique set of friends’ time in their loft as roommates come to an end.

New Girl is quirky and humorous all wrapped up in a feel-good comedy.

  • No Good Nick – Release date: April 15

This upcoming American comedy shows how a family’s life gets turned around as a grifter shows up on their doorstep claiming to be a distant relative.

With Melissa Joan Hart and Sean Astin as the struggling parents, this new series promises to be a great new family sitcom.

Horror:

  • Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D – Release date: April 1

This slasher film ignores logic, is gruesome all the way and involves loud, drawn-out screams, but remains a popular, mindless thrill.

  • Friday the 13th (2009) – Release date: April 1

If wanting a more classic feel to the horror genre, there’s not much that beats Cunningham’s 1980 Friday the 13th coming after teenagers in the woods.

Throwback:  

  • Bonnie and Clyde (1967) – Release date: April 1

Talk about a throwback. Bonnie and Clyde are referenced all the time, but how many of us have actually seen the movie? The true classic asks the audience to root for the criminals and finds the trouble side in us all.

  • Spy Kids – Release date: April 1

Spy Kids doesn’t really need much explaining. If feeling nostalgic and in the mood for an over the top, extremely imaginative experience, here’s the movie.
