March has been a massive month for streaming entertainment, with so many people stuck inside during the coronavirus outbreak. Netflix even agreed to slow streaming speeds in Europe by 25 percent after EU officials asked the company to help “preserve the smooth functioning of the Internet” as hundreds of millions of people stayed home during the pandemic.

April will likely hold more of the same, but the start of a new month means even more new releases from companies like Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime.

Here’s the full list of new movies and TV shows arriving on the three platforms, as well as our must-watch picks from each company.

Top TV pick: “What We Do in the Shadows”: Season 2

Before he hit the big time with the likes of “Thor: Ragnarok” and “Jojo Rabbit,” director Taika Waititi created the riotous 2014 mockumentary “What We Do in the Shadows” with fellow New Zealander Jemaine Clement (“Flight of the Conchords”), which chronicles a household of vampire roommates. Clement hasn’t missed a beat adapting the film to the small screen for FX, following new plotlines and bringing new undead bloodsuckers into the fold. The show premieres on April 15, with new episodes being added weekly on Hulu.

Top pick: “The Death of Stalin”

Armando Iannucci has given the television world a lot of laughter over the years, with the Emmy Award-winning political satire “Veep,” its British predecessor “The Thick of It,” and the new HBO sci-fi comedy “Avenue 5.” The Brit is no slouch when it comes to movies. either, as he proved with “The Death of Stalin,” a screwball comedy that chronicles the fictional chaos and gamesmanship following the Russian leader’s passing. Steve Buscemi (“Fargo”) as Nikita Khrushchev and Jeffrey Tambor (“Arrested Development”) as Georgy Malenkov are highlights.

TV Shows/Specials

Top pick: “Community”

NBC’s Thursday night comedy block in the late 2000s was stacked from top to bottom, with “The Office,” “30 Rock,” and “Parks and Recreation” among the vaunted titles providing the laughs. Less heralded but no less deserving of praise is “Community,” an ensemble comedy from Dan Harmon (“Rick & Morty”) about a group of misfits who form a study group at Greendale Community College. The jokes are meta, the characters are flawed but lovable, and each member of the cast — including Joel McHale (“Ted”), Donald Glover (“Atlanta”), and Chevy Chase (“Caddyshack”) — is note-perfect.

Top Pick: “Goldfinger”

The forthcoming James Bond film, “No Time to Die,” has been delayed until November due to the coronavirus, but Amazon is keeping fans of the spy franchise satisfied by adding 4K ultra-HD versions of every movie in the franchise in April. “Goldfinger,” the third movie in the series, is a good place to start, as it was the first true Bond blockbuster and was the first Bond movie to include hallmarks like high-tech gadgetry and memorable quotes like “shaken, not stirred.”

Top pick: “Bosch” Season 6

Titus Welliver built a solid career as a stoic character actor in movies like “The Town” and shows like “Deadwood” and “Lost.” But in 2014, the New Haven, Conn., native got the lead role as Los Angeles Police detective Harry Bosch in Amazon’s police procedural “Bosch,” which returns for a sixth season on April 17. This season finds Bosch fighting domestic terrorists in LA, in what Amazon promises is the “highest stakes season to date.”
