Netflix has two Indian originals in store for us in April — Tooth Pari: When Love Bites and Indian Matchmaking season 3. The former is a romantic horror series set in Kolkata, which sees a rebellious vampire with a broken tooth falling in love with a shy dentist during one of her appointments. The series stars Tanya Maniktala (Flames) and Shantanu Maheshwari (Gangubai Kathiawadi) as leads, and premieres April 20 on Netflix. A day later, Sima Taparia returns for a third season of Indian Matchmaking, the unscripted docuseries which sees her pairing up South Asian singles in India and abroad. It returns with eight new episodes on April 21.
On the global side of things, we've got the Steven Yeun (Minari) and Ali Wong-led (Birds of Prey) Beef, a comedy-drama series, wherein a heated road-rage incident burrows into their minds and sparks a long-running feud between the two. Created by Lee Sun Jin (Dave), the A24 series focuses on how easily humans project their personal problems onto another nameless, faceless person as an excuse for everything. All 10 episodes of Beef are out April 6 on Netflix.
Chase that down with Hunger, a Thai film which sees a street cook (Chutimon Chuengcharoensukying) pushing herself to the limit, after having accepted an invitation to join the fine-dining industry under the guidance of a ruthless chef. It's what you'd get if you were to blend the stressful conditions of Gordon Ramsay's Hell's Kitchen with the visual rawness of FX's The Bear, all compiled within a 130-minute runtime. Hunger releases April 8.

Obsession is a new erotic limited series that traces a respected London surgeon's love affair with his son's fiancée, which soon devolves into an infatuation, forming cracks in their daily lives. It drops April 13 on the platform.
Then there's Queenmaker, a South Korean series where an adept fixer (Kim Hee-ae) jumps into politics and uses her skills to propel a civil rights lawyer (Moon So-ri) into the position of the next mayor, and in the process, take down her former employer. Queenmaker will be available for streaming on April 14. After that, there's Phenomena, a 1990s-set Spanish horror that follows three middle-aged female paranormal investigators — Sagrario (Belén Rueda), Paz (Gracia Olayo) Gloria (Toni Acosta) — on a new case when their leader Father Pilón randomly disappears. Phenomena releases April 14 on Netflix.
Picking up right after the events of The Last Kingdom series where King Edward (Timothy Innes) passed away, Seven Kings Must Die sees the battle for the crown intensify. Now, Uthred (Alexander Dreymon) must step up and rally his comrades across a fractured kingdom in the hopes of uniting England. The fantasy epic releases April 14.
Based on the novel ‘The Flight Portfolio,' Transatlantic is a seven-part drama series that traces the activities of the Emergency Rescue Committee. In it, an American journalist and their allies form a scrappy rescue mission to arrange safe passage out of France and into America for over 2,000 refugees in the 1940s. The limited series stars Gillian Jacobs (Community), Cory Michael Smith (Gotham), and Lucas Englander (The Witcher) as leads, and drops April 7.

On a more lighthearted note, John Mulaney returns with his fourth stand-up comedy special for Netflix, Baby J on April 25. After her comedy series Wellmania from last month, Celeste Barber is back with a new comedy special ‘Fine, thanks,' getting personal about marriages, mental health, and celebrity-branded sex toys. On April 19, we've got Power Rangers coming back to screens with a new movie, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Once & Always, where the team reunites to thwart a familiar threat from the past and once again become the heroes the world needs. Then there's Oh Belinda, where a young actress's (Neslihan Atagül) life takes a madcap turn upon agreeing to star in a TV commercial and suddenly gets whisked into her character's world.
Longest Third Date is a quarantine love story documentary that focuses on Khani and Matt's relationship, who met on a dating app and in a spur-of-the-moment, decided to fly to Costa Rica. Unfortunately, that's when the COVID-19 pandemic hit, putting lockdowns and travel restrictions in place, turning their momentary vacation into a months-long adventure. Longest Third Date is coming to Netflix on April 18.
Meanwhile, Keri Russell (Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker) will star in The Diplomat as Kate Wyler, a career diplomat who lands a high-profile position as an ambassador to the UK amidst an international crisis — posing severe implications for her marriage. The Diplomat premieres April 20.
