Netflix Dropped 7 New Shows and Movies Just in Time for Easter Weekend

By

We hope you started your Easter/Passover weekend early, because Netflix has blessed us with a handful of new releases, which dropped Friday, April 19 (with the exception of Grass Is Greener, which will understandably only be here April 20). Netflix has something for everyone, including Gina Rodriguez's new movie, Someone Great, Chris Lilley's zany new show called Lunatics, and Season 2 of a Brazilian comedy that follows a former child star's attempts to squash a nasty biopic being made about her. Since we'll all probably be on our couch eating Reese's Easter egg candy and carrot cake anyway, this is the perfect time to binge watch some good movies and shows.

1. 'Someone Great'

If you're heartbroken that you'll have to say goodbye to Jane Villanueva after this season of Jane the Virgin ends, then you've gotta meet Jenny in Someone Great (also played by the amazing Gina Rodriguez). The Netflix original movie is about a woman who gets broken up with when she tells her long-term boyfriend that she got a job in San Francisco and won't be sticking around New York for much longer. Jenny is devastated, but luckily she has her best friends (DeWanda Wise and Brittany Snow), who encourage her to live it up in New York while she can. Created by the same executive producer who brought you Bridesmaids, this feel-good comedy is about friendship, self-discovery... and a genius green juice Champagne hack.
