New on Netflix in April 2022

The final chapter of Ozark, Judd Apatow's pandemic-inspired comedy The Bubble, Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin's last Grace and Frankie season, Natasha Lyonne's Russian Doll return, and steamy British drama Anatomy of a Scandal all launch this month.

by | March 29, 2022 | Comments

Ozark’s highly-anticipated final episodes and Judd Apatow’s star-studded pandemic-inspired comedy The Bubble lead Netflix’s April 2022 offerings.

Part 2 of Ozark’s fourth and final season finds Marty and Wendy Byrde (Jason Bateman and Laura Linney) in the position of power they’ve strived for throughout the series’ tumultuous, chaotic, and often bloody events. As the series races towards its finale, the big question remains: Will they be able to escape the Ozarks for good, or will their crimes catch up with them for good?

On the comedy front, Judd Apatow co-writes, directs, and produces The Bubble, a fictional behind-the-scenes account of what goes into making the sixth installment of the fictional mega dino movie franchise, Cliff Beasts. Leslie Mann, Iris Apatow, David Duchovny, Fred Armisen, Keegan-Michael Key, Pedro Pascal, and Karen Gillan all play fictionalized versions of themselves, while stuck inside a pandemic bubble at a hotel, attempting to finish production on the highly anticipated blockbuster.

Natasha Lyonne is back in the long-awaited second season of Russian Doll, and in case you were curious, the existential craziness is all still there. But this time, Nadia faces a whole new dilemma to sort out. And Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin are back for one more season of the groundbreaking comedy Grace and Frankie. Anatomy of a Scandal brings equal parts political intrigue and tantalizing drama to the streamer. Co-written by David E. Kelley and based on the book of the same name by Sarah Vaughan, the series stars Michelle Dockery, Sienna Miller, and Rupert Friend.

Both sparring partners and partners-in-crime, Grace and Frankie formed an unlikely and unbreakable bond as they faced uncertain futures head-on, and hand-in-hand. They’ve laughed together, cried together, did shrooms together, and twice-over became successful entrepreneurs together.
