New on Hulu: All the Movies and TV Coming in April

Hulu’s streaming slate is about due for another monthly upgrade, with a bevy of exciting new programming heading to the service in April. Between the streamer’s burgeoning slate of original shows and its increasingly competitive movie library, Hulu continues to step its game up—read on to see exactly how they’re doing that next.

Hulu’s April slate is highlighted by its TV offerings, none more momentous than the return of their original series adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale. The Emmy-winning dystopian drama, starring Mad Men’s Elisabeth Moss as our protagonist Offred, “returns with a second season shaped by Offred’s pregnancy and her ongoing fight to free her future child from the dystopian horrors of Gilead,” per Hulu’s synopsis. The new season’s first teaser debuted earlier this month, auguring a blooming revolution amongst the subjugated handmaids of Gilead. The resistance begins on April 25. Earlier in the month, we can look forward to a number of other noteworthy additions, including the complete fourth season of Starz’s swashbuckling adventure series Black Sails on April 2, the complete second season of AMC’s decidedly sacreligious Preacher adaptation on April 10, the season seven premiere of Fox comedy New Girl on April 11, the season two premiere of HBO’s prestige sci-fi juggernaut Westworld (for HBO subscribers only) on April 22 and the complete fifth season of History’s Vikings on April 24. Last but by no means least among Hulu’s April TV additions is underrated NBC sitcom The Carmichael Show, whose third and final season streams in full starting on April 30.

As for Hulu’s incoming feature film slate, we’d first and foremost like to highlight Martin Scorsese’s Taxi Driver, inbound on April 1. The gritty and iconic 1976 drama stars Robert De Niro as alienated Vietnam vet Travis Bickle, who becomes a cab driver because he’s unable to sleep at night. Travis slips slowly and surely towards the precipice of sanity over the course of the film, becoming increasingly obsessed with the idea of purging New York City of “filth and scum” until his radical thoughts result in an indelibly bloody conclusion. And speaking of blood, the first of the month will also see the addition of classic Stephen King adaptation Carrie (1976), along with overlooked Danny McBride/Jody Hill comedy The Foot Fist Way, iconic ‘80s horror landmark Friday the 13th, all-time Oscar-winning epic Lawrence of Arabia, game-changing 2007 horror hit Paranormal Activity, subversive ‘90s action-comedy Small Soldiers, Mel Brooks’ beloved Star Wars spoof Spaceballs, Molly Shannon-starring SNL spinoff Superstar, Cheech & Chong’s seminal stoner comedy Up in Smoke and endearing 1993 sequel Wayne’s World 2, among many others. Films to follow later on in April include Ridley Scott’s Denzel Washington-starring crime drama American Gangster and Roberto Benigni’s Oscar-winning 1997 Holocaust drama Life is Beautiful, both of which debut on April 15, followed by hand-painted (and Oscar-nominated) Vincent Van Gogh biopic Loving Vincent on April 19 and underrated post-apocalyptic thriller Z for Zachariah on April 20.

Lastly, we take stock of what’s leaving Hulu next month: not much, fortunately. April 30 is the last day to stream charming French romance Amelie, Oscar-winning 1982 romantic drama An Officer and a Gentleman, Philip Seymour Hoffman-starring biopic Capote, Sergio Leone’s spaghetti western sequel For A Few Dollars More, 1990’s Oscar-nominated Hamlet adaptation and Stephen Chow’s comedic martial-arts adventure Kung Fu Hustle. But beyond that, we’re pleased to report that Hulu’s library won’t be missing much of consequence come May 1.
