Magic Mike XXL

Look, I don’t have much new to say about Magic Mike XXL. The 2015 dramedy, which reunites retired dancer Mike Lane (Channing Tatum) with his best friends for a stripper convention, is a delightful romp, and the best entry of the Magic Mike film trilogy, fullstop. (Apologies to filmmaker Steven Soderbergh, as it’s also the only movie in the series he didn’t direct. He’ll be fine.) It should always be available to watch at a moment’s notice. April 1


I love The Talented Mr. Ripley and I love Andrew Scott, so putting the two together is, on paper, a thrilling idea. Black-and-white miniseries Ripley—which is adapted from Patricia Highsmith’s bestselling novels about the titular character—is set in the ’60s and follows grifter Tom Ripley (Scott) as he travels to Italy to convince the son of a wealthy man (Johnny Flynn) to return home. Instead, what follows is a string of lies, fraud and murder. Sounds like a dream vacation. April 4

Parasyte: The Grey

Train to Busan director Yeon Sang-ho is back and, from the looks of it, his latest South Korean series is going to be just as horrifying as the beloved zombie flick. Parasyte: The Grey tracks a group of parasitic creatures who fall to earth from outer space. Upon their arrival, they enter the bodies of unsuspecting humans to create their own faction on our planet. Usually, when the creatures host in a body, the victims die—except one woman (Jeon So-nee) who somehow survives with the parasite still in her brain. April 5


Long before “Where is Kate Middleton?” conspiracies consumed the internet, and even before Meghan and Harry left for the U.S., a different—and much more serious scandal—rocked the royal family. With rumours circling about his relationship with notorious sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, Prince Andrew sat down with the BBC for an interview. that was so disastrous, he had to step back from public duties as people were left asking, “How did this even happen?” Now, British film Scoop is dramatizing the events leading up to the interview with the Queen’s son, chronicling how the women journalists worked to land the story. Billie Piper, Gillian Anderson, Romola Garai, Keeley Hawes and Rufus Sewell star. April 5

Baby Reindeer

Earlier in his career, Scottish comedian and actor Richard Gadd had a stalker. He later turned that harrowing experience into an acclaimed 2019 solo theatre show, which he has now adapted into an eight-episode series. In Baby Reindeer, Gadd stars as struggling comedian Donny, who meets a vulnerable woman while bartending, leading to a suffocating, toxic relationship. The longer the harassment continues, the greater the risk to both Donny and his stalker. April 11

The Circle: Season 6

Reality TV lover’s favourite social media competition, The Circle, is returning for another round of players competing to be crowned top influencer (and win a cash prize, of course). For season six, contestants will be taking over an apartment building in Atlanta. Episodes will also arrive in batches: four episodes will drop every Wednesday until May 8. April 17

Rebel Moon — Part Two: The Scargiver

Filmmaker Zack Snyder has hypothesized that his violent, Star Wars-inspired sci-fi action flick, Rebel Moon – Part One: A Child of Fire, which debuted last December, has gotten more viewers at home than Barbie got in theatres. I remain skeptical about that, as the movie is not very good—maybe more people had a chance to start it, but did they actually watch it all the way through? I’m a completionist, so I did, which is also why I’ll probably be checking out Rebel Moon – Part Two: The Scargiver. This one follows the group of rebel warriors from the first film as they prepare to protect a peaceful planet that will soon be under attack. April 19

Boy Detectives

Missing the moody-spooky vibes of The Sandman? You can revisit that show’s universe (with a slightly more comedic tone), with Dead Boy Detectives. Also inspired by Neil Gaiman’s DC comic book characters, the eight-episode series follows Edwin (George Rexstrew) and Charles (Jayden Revri), two teens who became best friends after they died. That’s right: they’re ghost detectives, and there’s nothing they love more than solving paranormal mysteries. April 25
