Easter is coming and that means Bank Holiday weekends designed for binge-watching. This April, Netflix has a small (by its standards) but cracking selection, with its big nature documentary series Our Planet finally hitting our screens. That’s joined by new interactive offering You vs. Wild, which sees Bear Grylls go up against the natural world, with viewers telling him what to do.
For those looking for family entertainment, you can’t go wrong with the return of She-Ra and Pinky Malinky and a mouth-watering documentary series from the creators of Chef’s Table. And, for rom-com fans, Netflix continues its plan to make Noah Centineo your new dream boyfriend with The Perfect Date. On the darker side of the stream, there are more Chilling Adventures of Sabrina to keep you spellbound. But sometimes, you just want dinosaurs, pure and simple, in which case, there’s good news there too: the first three Jurassic Park films are on the way.
