There’s really never been a better time for Netflix to drop a bunch of new titles on the platform. The streaming giant revealed the following list of movies and series coming to Netflix in April 2020, and it’s honestly just the thing we needed to see during this time of increased streaming à la social distancing.

Thankfully, Netflix is not playing around this month. There’s a whopping selection of new Netflix Originals along with beloved blockbusters ready to make their way onto our television screens. That includes some picks that fit right in line with our best Netflix documentaries and comedy series‘ lists.

Read on below for a preview of the titles we’re most excited about, as well as the full list of titles to expect throughout the month.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower (2012)

This tender coming-of-age film is based on the Stephen Chbosky novel of the same name. It follows a shy, precocious high schooler named Charlie (Logan Lerman) as he learns to stop hugging the walls thanks to siblings Sam (Emma Watson) and Patrick (Ezra Miller). A stellar cast and an even sweeter tale.

Available to Stream on Netflix April 1.

Community: Season 1-6 (2009-2015)

Ah, Community. The sitcom where Donald Glover (a.k.a. Childish Gambino) got his acting start follows a group of community college students as they get “tutored” by a former lawyer without credentials. If you missed this gem when it aired, now’s your chance.

Django Unchained (2012)

A Quentin Tarantino standout, Django Unchained is finally landing on Netflix. The riotously gruesome, wryly humorous film features the formidable Django (Jamie Foxx), a freed slave, and his bounty-hunting comrade, Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz) on a revenge mission to save Django’s wife.

Available to Stream on Netflix April 25.

The Social Network (2010)

Remember when The Social Network was the biggest of Mark Zuckerberg’s problems? Jesse Eisenberg plays an infuriatingly good Zuckerberg alongside his former friend and co-founder, Eduardo (Andrew Garfield). With their story, this telling feature film became the definitive moment that Facebook’s founder catapulted into a figure of popular culture—not just the web.
