What's new on Netflix for April 2020? I'd start with one of the best sitcoms in decades, and many will stream an incoming action movie starring Chris Hemsworth.

While we wait for Netflix to deliver a Stranger Things 4 release date, we're getting our fix of reality TV with a new batch of Terrace House and a new series of the cooking show Nailed it! And the hits keep coming, giving a lot of answers for when your family asks about what to watch on Netflix.

Netflix is also going big on pro wrestling this month. The Big Show Show is a comedy starring the gigantic actor Paul "The Big Show" Wight. There's also a new film called The Main Event, in which an 11-year old finds a magical wrestling mask that gives him super strength. The latter also co-stars Adam Pally and Ken Marino, The Miz, Keith Lee, Kofi Kingston and Sheamus. 

My top pick for what's new on Netflix this month isn't even a new show. The entire six season run of Community is finally on Netflix. Those who missed it on NBC will now get top watch young Donald Glover and Alison Brie as Troy and Annie, along with the rest of the Greendale Six. There's also a pack of comedy specials starring Silicon Valley and Parks & Rec stars Thomas Middleditch and Ben Schwartz.

Here's the whole roster of what's new on Netflix (and also leaving the service) in April 2020. Our top selections are in bold.

Check out our best family movies on Netflix if you're looking for films to watch with your family. We've also got a guide to the best shows on Netflix if you're running out of shows to binge.

    PRETTY SLIM PICKINGS. I don't miss Netflix at all. I think you could sign up for one month a year, and watch all the good stuff they have. Then do it again a year later...
