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

In these times of coronavirus, staying inside to stream your favorite film and television titles isn’t just some fun diversion: It’s now a morally upstanding act. Hulu’s April slate comprises dozens of new opportunities for you to entertain yourself while quarantining. Here are the most eye-catching additions on the way.

The standout feature film headed to Hulu next month is a shoo-in: Bong Joon Ho’s Oscar-winning Parasite, i.e. Paste’s top movie of 2019, which streams exclusively on Hulu starting on April 8. If you’ve been unable to make time for the historic Best Picture winner thus far, you no longer have any excuse—we’ll leave our argument for watching this film at that, as it’s the kind of ride best experienced with as few preconceptions as possible. The bulk of the month’s other films arrive on April 1: Essential Mel Brooks comedy Blazing Saddles, Sam Raimi’s game-changing 2002 superhero hit Spider-Man, Oscar-winning Stephen King adaptation Misery, both volumes of Quentin Tarantino’s two-part martial arts revenge epic Kill Bill, Robert Zemeckis-directed Michael Douglas/Kathleen Turner adventure Romancing the Stone, iconic Tom Cruise teen caper Risky Business, recently sequel-ized horror-comedy Zombieland, Denzel Washington-starring post-apocalyptic thriller The Book Of Eli, American Let the Right One In remake Let Me In and 2003 Colin Farrell/Kiefer Sutherland thriller Phone Booth, among others. Stragglers bringing up the rear later in April include found-footage horror sequel Paranormal Activity 3 (April 20), last year’s animated Yeti adventure Abominable (April 24) and the 2011 Footloose remake (April 29), which, evidently, exists.

We gave place of prominence to film in deference to the outstanding Parasite, but it’s Hulu’s April TV slate that would have otherwise been the star of the show: Notable additions abound, in large part thanks to FX on Hulu, the new partnership through which the latter becomes the exclusive streaming home of the former’s many acclaimed shows. We’ll begin with an ending: April 3 brings the third and final season of Future Man, the Hulu original sci-fi comedy from executive producers and directors Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, starring Josh Hutcherson, Eliza Coupe and Derek Wilson. Season 3 finds Josh (Hutcherson), Tiger (Coupe) and Wolf (Wilson), convicted of time crimes and sentenced to death by entertainment, becoming fugitives and going on the run through time so they can clear their names and clean up the big mess they’ve made of history along the way. FX on Hulu comes into play a bit later in the month: For starters, there’s the series premiere of Mrs. America (April 15), starring Cate Blanchett as anti-feminist Equal Rights Movement opponent Phyllis Schafly—the limited series, which also stars Rose Byrne, Uzo Aduba, Tracey Ullman, Sarah Paulson, Margo Martindale, Elizabeth Banks and John Slattery, “tells the story of the movement to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA), and the unexpected backlash that forever shifted the political landscape,” per its synopsis. Just one day later, What We Do In The Shadows (April 16) returns for a second season of silly vampire antics—the acclaimed FX series, inspired by Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement’s 2014, mockumentary-style horror-comedy of the same name, follows four vampires rooming together in Staten Island, very incompetently vying for global domination. In the show’s second season, “the vampires will try to find their way in a world of human Super Bowl parties, internet trolls, an energy vampire who gets a promotion and becomes drunk on power and, of course, all the ghosts, witches, necromancers, zombies and shadowy cloaked assassins who roam freely in the Tri-State area,” per its synopsis. Last but hardly least is the Season 4 premiere of Noah Hawley’s crime-drama anthology Fargo (April 20), based on the Coen Brothers’ 1996 classic of the same name. The anthology’s fourth installment, set in 1950 Kansas City, “centers on two criminal syndicates who are fighting for a piece of the American dream and have struck an uneasy peace. Together, they control an alternate economy of exploitation, graft and drugs. To cement their truce, Loy Cannon (Chris Rock), the head of the African-American crime family, trades his youngest son Satchel (Rodney Jones) to his enemy Donatello Fadda (Tomasso Ragno), the head of the Italian mafia. In return, Donatello surrenders his youngest son Zero (Jameson Braccioforte) to Loy.” We can only imagine that Midwestern politeness, life-or-death misunderstandings and deceptions, and the occasional shock of ultra-violence ensue from there.

Update, 5:02 p.m. ET: Deadline now reports that Fargo’s Season 4 premiere has been pushed back due to a coronavirus-required production delay, so you won’t have that to look forward to in April after all. Once production resumes, a new premiere date will be set. Hulu has confirmed the new season’s delay.

We’d be remiss to conclude our blathering before flagging what’s leaving Hulu in April, as well: 28 Days Later, National Lampoon’s Vacation (and European, and Christmas), Bridget Jones’s Diary (and The Edge Of Reason, and Baby) John Q, Say Anything, Lord of War, Robin Hood (1991) and My Best Friend’s Wedding all vanish on April 30. You’ve been told!
