Even with Netflix’s recommendation algorithm serving you new movies, new TV shows, and original programming tailored to your viewing habits, the streaming service’s fire hose of content makes what’s coming and going difficult to parse.
In April, we’re getting a new Netflix interactive — and also a horror movie about an interactive game that is not actually a Netflix interactive. The final season of Ozark also hits the platform, along with some more Tiger & Bunny and the new season of Russian Doll.
