I get so excited when a new month is near because that means a bunch of shows are either premiering or returning. And believe me, April 2024 is jam-packed with many fan-favorites! I'm going to have to clear up so much time on my calendar.

March brought with it many great additions, and this month will keep you fellow TV fans busy with the return of series' like Walker season 4; The Big Door Prize season 2; Star Trek: Discovery season 5 (aka the final season), and When Calls the Heart season 11, as well as debuts of productions including Water Under the Bridge and The Veil on Hulu.

Below we highlighted some of the biggest returns and highly-anticipated premieres to be on the lookout for. And be sure to keep scrolling all the way down to see the full list of what's to come in April further below!

All American season 6

One of the shows we're most looking forward to is definitely All American season 6 on The CW. And thankfully, it's coming at the very beginning of the month on Monday, April 1 at 8 p.m. ET. When the sports drama returns, it will have been almost a year since we got new episodes of the series. This is due to delays from the writers and actors strikes. But, now we're back on track!

The main cast is all returning except for Taye Diggs as Coach Baker who died in season 5. The familiar faces you'll see back on your screens are Daniel Ezra as Spencer, Samantha Logan as Olivia, Michael Evans Behling as Jordan, Greta Onieogou as Layla, Bre-Z as Tamia "Coop" Cooper, Cody Christian as Asher, Karimah Westbrook as Grace, Monet Mazur as Laura. Chelsea Tavares as Patience, Hunter Clowdus as JJ Parker, Jalyn Hall as Dillon, and Kareem J. Grimes as Preach.

Season 6 episode 1, "Things Done changed," will start off at the beginning of a new school year with Spencer and Jordan "officially eligible to enter the NFL draft," per the synopsis. Because of this, Spencer is at the center of the "media spotlight." Olivia comes back to L.A. after "being changed by her time" in London, while Layla works on opening up her new lounge where Patience will perform for the first time "since being stabbed." Finally, Asher and Jaymee are living the parent life with their new baby AJ.

Vanderpump Villa

Reality series Vanderpump Rules is a popular one amongst fans, especially following Scandoval. Now, the franchise is growing with a spin-off - Vanderpump Villa. The new series premieres Monday, April 1 on Hulu. There will be a total of 10 episodes. The first three will be released on premiere day, followed by one new installment weekly until the finale on May 20.

The series of course sees Lisa Vanderpump at the helm, and takes place at her French villa: Chateau Rosabelle. We'll be following the staff as they try to provide "luxurious, once-in-a-lifetime experiences" for guests, while also facing rivalries, romances, and "raucous misadventures," per the synopsis. Get ready for all sorts of drama! Vanderpump always knows how to bring it.


If you're a fan of crime thrillers and the iconic The Talented Mr. Ripley novel by author Patricia Highsmith, then you'll definitely want to tune in to new Netflix series Ripley on Thursday, April 4. The eight-episode series stars Andrew Scott in the titular role; Dakota Fanning as Marge Sherwood; and Johnny Flynn as Dickie Greenleaf.

Tom Ripley is a grifter "scraping by in early 1960s New York," per the synopsis. When he's hired by a wealthy many to go to Italy to try to get his "vagabond son" to come back home, this leads to Tom's first step into "a complex life of deceit, fraud and murder." There's a total of five books, so plenty of material to work from! The Tom Ripley franchise is a popular one, and I have no doubt Netflix's take on it will be just as good as well.

Mary & George

I think the series I'm most looking forward to on the April list is definitely Mary & George! I love historical dramas, and this one just sounds so complex, dramatic, and spicy. All ingredients for the perfect series I'd say! The drama premieres Friday, April 5 on Starz.

There's a total of seven episodes, with Julianne Moore taking on the role of Mary Villiers and Nicholas Galitzine as her son George. The television production also stars Tony Curran as King James I, Laurie Davidson as Robert Carr, and Trine Dyrholm as Queen Anne. Check out the synopsis and trailer below:

"Mary & George is inspired by the unbelievable true story of Mary Villiers (Julianne Moore), who moulded her beautiful and charismatic son, George (Nicholas Galitzine), to seduce King James I (Tony Curran) and become his all-powerful lover. Through outrageous scheming, the pair rose from humble beginnings to become the richest, most titled and influential players the English court had ever seen, and the King’s most trusted advisors. And with England’s place on the world stage under threat from outside forces and rioters taking to the streets to denounce the King, the stakes could not have been higher.

Prepared to stop at nothing and armed with her ruthless political steel, Mary married her way up the ranks, bribed politicians, colluded with criminals and clawed her way into the heart of the Establishment, making it her own. Mary & George is a dangerously daring historical psychodrama about an outrageous mother and son who schemed, seduced and killed to conquer the court of England and the bed of King James I."
