With the return of iconic shows like Ted Lasso, Succession and Yellowjackets in recent months, we've sure been spoilt on the small screen. But don't fret, April is serving up a delectable choice of shows. Maybe you want a laugh with Beef or Mrs Davis? Or a mystery from The Last Thing He Told Me or Love & Death? Perhaps something suspenseful like The Diplomat or Citadel is up your alley? Or maybe you just want some heartwarming drama from the last instalment of Firefly Lane. Either way, there's something you'll want to stream this April.
If there’s one thing that can tip an average day over the edge, it is road rage. Sure enough, that’s exactly what happens to Danny (Steven Yeun) and Amy (Ali Wong) when their worlds — and nearly their cars — collide. Both from opposite ends of the socioeconomic spectrum, their feud is a catalyst that highlights how deeply unhappy both of them are. But how far will they play the blame game, and what will be destroyed in the process?

Reece Witherspoon has a knack for discovering a good read. But she doesn’t stop there. Through her production company, Hello Sunshine, we’ve seen Big Little Lies, Little Fires Everywhere, Where the Crawdad Sings and — more recently — Daisy Jones & The Six grace our screens.

Featuring big names like Jennifer Garner, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Angourie Rice, we’ll follow Hannah (Garner) who must forge an unexpected bond with her step-daughter if she wants to find her missing husband.

From the creative genius of Deborah Cahn (Homeland, The West Wing) comes another political thriller that’ll have us on the edge of our seats. With actress Keri Russell at the helm, The Diplomat follows Kate Wyler, a career diplomat who lands a high-profile job as the US ambassador to the UK. While they’re in the midst of an international crisis, Kate struggles with the expectations from her seniors (high-end brands and editorial spreads are not a priority in this political climate), along with juggling the relationships in her life, be it marriage or military alliance. As they say, all is fair in love and war.

With our social media feeds filled with artificial intelligence ads these days (we see you Jasper AI and ChatGPT. And no, we don’t want you writing these articles), a sci-fi comedy that sees a nun use her faith to try and take down AI seems awfully fitting. Co-created by Damon Lindelof of Lost fame, we’re excited to see Betty Gilpin (Glow) and Jake McDorman (Dopesick) lead the resilience against Mrs Davis, an AI reckoning with their modern-day society. If you’re a fan of Westworld, I Am Mother or The Peripheral, you’ll be sure to love this.

Based on the true story of Candy Montgomery, Love & Death recounts a love triangle gone horribly wrong. Candy, played by Elizabeth Olsen, is a dedicated Texan housewife, friend and church-goer. But not all is as it seems. Her friendship with neighbour, Betty Gore, begins to turn sour when Candy has an extramarital affair with her husband, Allan. While he’s out of town, Betty is found dead with Candy being the primary suspect. But was it self defence or a crime of passion?

Firefly Lane about to come to an end and with only seven episodes to go, we’re curious to see how — and if — Kate and Tully’s friendship recovers after the latest bombshell in their lives: Kate’s daughter being involved in a car accident with Tully. While they’ve overcome a lot in their decades of companionship, will this tragedy be too much to come back from? As if the breakdown of a long-term friendship isn’t enough, it’s bad timing for Kate, who needs the support after her recent breast cancer diagnosis. Bring the tissues, because you’re sure to need a few as this chapter closes.

Now when we say Citadel is a spy series, we don’t just mean it’s any spy series. Before it has even hit our screen, a second season has already been signed along with several spinoffs in the Italian Alps, India, Spain and Mexico, making it a satellite series. So what’s all the hype? First off, it has a killer cast, including Richard Madden, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Stanley Tucci and Australia’s own Ashleigh Cummings. But secondly, this action-packed series will be matched with compelling emotions as secret agents attempt to regain their memories after the downfall of their international agency. Will they be able to overcome their memory wipe and also fight back against the syndicate that destroyed them?
