TAGGED AS: , , , , ,

Netflix in April sees fantasy series Sweet Tooth return for its second season, which continues the post-apocalyptic adventure of hybrid human-deer child Gus (Christian Convery) as he struggles to survive following society’s fall. Darkly comedic series Beef stars Steven Yeun as Danny Cho, a struggling contractor with anger issues, and Ali Wong as Amy Lau, the picture of entrepreneurial success. Their personal and professional lives collide in a road rage incident taken too far.

Drama offerings in the month include The Diplomat, a high-stakes, contemporary political drama starring Keri Russell as Kate Wyler, the new US Ambassador to the United Kingdom. Plus, Transatlantic is a seven-part series based on Julie Orringer’s novel The Flight Portfolio that explores the true story of the Emergency Rescue Committee – a group of unlikely heroes who assisted in the safe passage of French refugees from Nazi capture during World War II.

If action-packed, historical fiction is your thing, be sure to check out original film The Last Kingdom: Seven Kings Must Die, which continues the story started in The Last Kingdom TV series.

Following the death of King Edward, a battle for the crown ensues, as rival heirs and invaders compete for power.
