Spring has officially sprung! Now that the days are getting longer, we likely want to keep our kids outside more. But as we know, the change in the weather can bring on illness or a lot of rain, which forces our kids indoors. And for many of us, spring break is happening in the coming weeks. It's almost April, which means that there will be new movies and shows coming to Netflix for those times when we're stuck in the house. And it looks like it's going to be a good month!
If you're looking for something for the whole family, No Good Nick is a new family dramedy that drops on April 15th. Starring Melissa Joan Hart and Sean Astin, this show is about a girl named Nick (short for Nicole.) She is 13 and "infiltrates a family with the intention to get revenge on them for unknowingly ruining her life. As she gets to know the family, she will find compassion for them and will struggle with whether or not she can ultimately go through with the plan." The show has also been described as "watching Scandal, but with your kids." So it's bound to be something you don't want to miss.

It’s official — #NoGoodNick is launching on April 15, only on @Netflix! And we’ve got your first look at @melissajoanhart, @seanastin, @kalamaepstein, @officiallaurendonzis, and @sienaagudong on set ❤️ The show features Melissa and Sean as parents who get a big surprise: a 13-year-old who shows up on their doorstep claiming to be a distant relative! But it turns out Nicole aka “Nick” has a hidden agenda — she thinks they ruined her life and wants revenge … until she actually gets to know them. We can’t wait to see how this dramedy plays out 👏👏👏
But, if you have teens, tell them there's a new teen comedy they're bound to love coming. Heartthrob Noah Centineo, star of To All the Boys I've Loved Before stars in The Perfect Date. He plays a high schooler who creates an app that allows him to be a stand in boyfriend. It also stars Laura Marano from Austin & Ally and Camila Mendes from Riverdale.
Another fun family show is Rilakkuma and Kaoru, based on the popular Japanese character Rilakkuma. Rilakkuma is a stuffed bear with a zipper on his back. One day he shows up Kaoru's house. She is just a regular woman who works in an office and has no idea why a bear is moving into her house. But it looks like they learn to live together happily, and likely learn some important lessons along the way. And what's great is that Lana Condor, star of To All the Boys I've Loved Before stars as the voice of Kaoru.
