What's Streaming on Netflix in April 2021
Dolly Parton: A MusiCares Tribute (Netflix)

    Netflix is taking everyone to Dollywood in April 2021.

    MusiCares’ 2019 star-studded tribute to Dolly Parton is heading to the streaming giant. The concert film features Willie Nelson, Miley Cyrus, Kacey Musgraves, Shawn Mendes, Brandi Carlile, Katy Perry, Leon Bridges, Chris Stapleton, and many more.

    Right behind the music legend is Melissa McCarthy and Octavia Spencer’s new comedy Thunder Force, a second season of The Circle, and the premiere of Flying Lotus’ new anime series Yasuke that features the voice of Lakeith Stanfield.

    Elsewhere, there’s the Idris Elba-starring Concrete Cowboy, Jamie Foxx’s new series Dad Stop Embarrassing Me!, Toni Collette’s sci-fi drama Stowaway, and the three-part docuseries Life in Color with David Attenborough.


    In terms of archival additions, subscribers can enjoy Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master, Reese Witherspoon’s all-time classic Legally Blonde, the ever-terrifying Insidious, and the ridiculous John Cusack actioneer 2012.

    Check out the entire list below, which includes what’s also leaving this month. To help round out your streaming sessions, be sure to read our recent guides outlining everything that’s hitting Disney+, HBO Max, Hulu, and Shudder.
