Handmaid’s Tale, Victorian superheroes and everything else on Neon this April


What’s Neon got in store for us this April? See our handpicked highlights below followed by the full release schedule.

The Handmaid’s Tale: Season 4

Hulu’s Golden Globe-winning hit series returns for a fourth season. Fans worried about the show straying from Margaret Atwood’s novel need not worry, as creator Bruce Miller told The Hollywood Reporter: “We’re not going beyond the novel; we’re just covering territory she covered quickly, a bit more slowly.”

Available from 29 April (weekly release)

The Nevers

Set during the last years of Victoria’s reign, this HBO sci-fi action series centres on a chosen few Londoners (mainly women) who suddenly possess strange new abilities and must band together to survive being hunted. Outlander‘s Laura Donnelly stars alongside Ann Skelly, who recently impressed us with Irish mini-series Death and Nightingales.

Available from 12 April (weekly release)

Mare of Easttown

This seven-part limited series puts the ever-awesome Kate Winslet in the shoes of a small-town Pennsylvania detective investigating a local murder while trying to keep her life from falling apart.

Available from 19 April (weekly release)

Younger: The Final Season

A 40-year-old single mum suddenly finds an opportunity to restart her career and love life when she’s mistaken for being 26 in this hit series. Seasons one to six arrive on Neon 1 April with the seventh and final season starting 17 April.

Available from April 17 (weekly release)

Bill & Ted Face the Music

Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter revisit Bill & Ted, nearly 30 years after Bogus Journey, and now they have daughters. In his review, Flicks editor Steve Newall was proud to say “Face The Music has turned out to be better than it perhaps any right to be, recapturing the spirit of its predecessors…”

Available from 5 April

Savage

Last year’s praised New Zealand drama charts the evolution of a gang member across three decades. As Daniel Rutledge states in his review: “It is a fascinating and deeply sad look at the cycle of violence.”

Available from 15 April
