The King: Eternal Monarch - NETFLIX ORIGINAL

Just when you thought some of your favorites in the movies lineup were gone but not forgotten, some pretty big titles have resurfaced on the Netflix streaming platform. In particular, all three movies in The Matrix trilogy and all four Lethal Weapon flicks are about to come back to a home screen near you! So while production on The Matrix 4 may be on hold because of COVID-19, you'll still have plenty of time to catch up on those previous adventures.

In tribute to the recent updates involving Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson's recovery from their own coronavirus diagnosis, it seems like a good time to highlight a deep cut in the Hanks movie library coming online. Director Sam Mendes' adaptation of the graphic novel Road to Perdition is one of those rare times where you'll see Tom Hanks playing a bit of an anti-hero, as his mob hitman character goes on the road with his young son.

Last, but not least, a pretty notable Netflix original is debuting in April, as Extraction (previously titled Dhaka) sees Marvel Cinematic Universe employees Chris Hemsworth and David Harbour teaming up for an original film written by Avengers: Endgame co-director Joe Russo. An action-packed drama where Hemsworth risks his life to save the son of a drug lord, Extraction is one of the new ventures from The Russo Brothers' production company AGBO. So while we might be waiting a little longer to see Black Widow, there's no shortage of superpowered entertainment to come.

TV fans aren't going to be left in the cold though, as there's plenty of returning frivolities, as well as some new blood, on the horizon. After several successful, and absolutely hysterical, stand-up specials on Netflix, comedian Ilza Shlesinger --recently known for Spenser Confidential --is about to get her own sketch show. Entitled The Iliza Shlesinger Sketch Show, it basically does what it says on the tin, providing everyone's favorite elder millennial with a platform for even more laughs.

This sounds like a good option for those of you who are looking for something along the lines of I Think You Should Leave, or John Mulaney and The Sack Lunch Bunch. If you're more of a fan of something like, say, Nailed It! or The Last Kingdom, you'll be able to see both of those series come back for their fourth seasons of operation. Though if you're looking for something new to feast your eyes on, Netflix has that taken care of as well.

Thanks to a huge deal forged between black-ish creator Kenya Barris and Netflix, audience will get to see Barris' first new show on the platform, #blackAF. Starring its creator and Rashida Jones, this new series is based on Kenya Barris' family life, and is not meant to compete with black-ish in any way. Though, it will be exciting to see what Barris can get away with on Netflix, as his previous network relationship did come with some strings.

Netflix is ready to make your quarantine a little more exciting with all of the entertainment options it's about to provide. Though that doesn't change the usual stipulation that you should check this listing often, as titles are subject to change and availability. We'll see you back here this time next month, when May 2020 brings a fresh crop of material to the online library of Netflix.
