We lucked out this month when only a handful of titles expired from Netflix, but even more (lots more) movies and TV shows are leaving the service next month, including favorites like The Professional, Let the Right One In and M*A*S*H (the series). Read on for our guide to what’s expiring from Netflix Instant in April.

It's a miracle! Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Season 2 is hitting Netflix next month, along with the debut of new original series The Ranch and Kong: King of the Apes. In addition to the streaming service's latest original offerings, lots of television shows and movies are arriving, including everything from new favorites to old classics. Read on for our guide to April's new Netflix Instant releases.
Likely as it seems that Marvel will prove as quick to renew Daredevil for Season 3 as last year, we don’t yet know when The Defenders will pull the cast toward a team-up miniseries. Daredevil showrunners Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez aren’t talking either, though they at least know where the various Daredevil Season 2 threads might pick up, and how Jessica Jones might be involved.
We wouldn’t dare spoil the second season of Marvel’s Netflix Daredevil for you (if you haven’t powered through, get on it!), but suffice to say, we’re not much clearer on what will bring The Defenders together than before. Season 2 star Elodie Yung has an idea, however, that Elektra might be better suited against the big Netflix team-up, rather than lead her own series.
The moment Netflix confirmed that Gilmore Girls would return for a four-part Netflix revival, as well the subsequent announcements of returning cast, we knew one thing for sure: Rory, Dean, and all of Stars Hollow would all weigh their two cents in on Batman v. Superman! Right? Or … at least Dean and Jess would. Look, cross-promotion is weird.
We’ve reached a point where Netflix can sometimes overshadow itself by the number of originals premiering each week, and family saga Bloodline certainly supported an understated approach in its 2015 premiere. Now, the Damages-created drama is back for Season 2, setting a May return with the first photos.
Daredevil Season 2 has proven to be a very different animal than its predecessor, but that hasn’t stopped the Netflix Man Without Fear from one-upping his past. Watch the full five-minute hallway fight that Charlie Cox compared to the first season sequence “on crack”!
Marvel’s Netflix Luke Cage surprised us all with the release of its first teaser, months ahead of a September 30 premiere, and new details of the Hero for Hire’s live-action return have busted out as well. Victor Frankenstein and Sherlock director Paul McGuigan directed the first two installments of the upcoming series, as revealed on social media.
Daredevil Season 2 has only been available to stream for a few short days, with no guaranteed of a third season before Matt Murdock joins The Defenders, but already Charlie Cox knows who should take aim at the Man Without Fear in Season 3, including a familiar face, and a long-awaited debut.
Sooner or later, they all come to TV. Or Netflix, at least, as Drew Barrymore takes her first TV series regular role alongside Justified alum Timothy Olyphant for new Netlix single-camera comedy Santa Clarita Diet, as written by Better Off Ted alum Victor Fresco.
