What’s coming and leaving Netflix in April 2020

Written By Tia Bailey, Co-Features/A&E Editor

It’s that time of the month again — when Netflix takes movies and shows away and puts some new ones in. Here are some of the best that are coming (and going) in April. 



Killer Klowns from Outer Space: This 80’s horror film may be cheesy, but it’s also a classic. The movie will appear on Netflix on April 1, which is fitting for April Fool’s Day. 

The Girl With All the Gifts: Although I haven’t personally seen this one, it has been on my list for a while. The movie has an 85 percent on Rotten Tomatoes and looks promising. It will also appear on April 1.

The Hangover: This 2009 comedy is exactly what we need to keep us entertained during the quarantine. “The Hangover” will be on Netflix on April 1.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower: Who doesn’t love Ezra Miller? The movie based on the YA novel by Steven Chbosky will be available to stream on April 1.

The Circle France: “The Circle” on Netflix is the one reality show I’ve watched and loved. The French version will be released to Netflix starting on April 9. 



All of the following leave Netflix on April 30, so watch while you still can! 

A Cinderella Story: The best installment, with Hillary Duff, will be leaving Netflix at the end of the month. Go watch Sam tell off Austin Ames one more time. 

A Nightmare on Elm Street: The horror classic will no longer be available to stream. Even though it’s technically not spooky season, this one still hurts. 

The Craft: The witchy cult classic “The Craft” was recently readded, but will be leaving again at the end of April. But who knows? It may be back on again sometime soon. 

Friday the 13th: Again, it’s not anywhere near Halloween, so I understand, but if you want to get some scares in, do so before April 30. 

The Hangover: It seems kind of rude for them to take off a movie the same month they put it in, but “The Hangover” will be leaving at the end of the month. 

Step Brothers: Another classic comedy will no longer be available to stream on the service. 

The Shawshank Redemption: The Stephen King movie starring Morgan Freeman will leave Netflix at the end of the month. Watch for that twist ending a few more times before it goes. 

Space Jam: This one hurts. “Space Jam” will only be available for another month.
