NEW BINGE-WORTHY NETFLIX ORIGINALS TO ADD TO YOUR LIST:
Is one of your favorites on the list above? Don't worry, there are still a ton of other fan-favorite original Netflix shows and movies you can binge, including new original movies every single week in 2021. Here's what we think you should stream this month.
Bridgerton: From Shondaland and creator Chris Van Dusen, Bridgerton follows Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dyvenor), the eldest daughter of the powerful Bridgerton family as she makes her debut onto Regency London's competitive marriage market. Hoping to follow in her parent's footsteps and find a match sparked by true love, Daphne's prospects initially seem to be unrivaled. But as her older brother begins to rule out her potential suitors, the high society scandal sheet written by the mysterious Lady Whistledown casts aspersions on Daphne. Enter the highly desirable and rebellious Duke of Hastings (Regé-Jean Page), committed bachelor and the catch of the season for the debutantes' mamas. Despite proclaiming that they want nothing the other has to offer, their attraction is undeniable and sparks fly as they find themselves engaged in an increasing battle of wits while navigating society's expectations for their future.
Season 1 of Bridgerton is available to stream now, with not one, not two, but three more seasons on their way.prevnext
While spending the summer in North Philadelphia, a troubled teen is caught between a life of crime and his estranged father's vibrant urban-cowboy subculture.

'DOLLY PARTON: A MUSICARES TRIBUTE'
In a star-studded evening of music and memories, a community of iconic performers honor Dolly Parton as the MusiCares Person of the Year.

But this year's has been made available to the public via Netflix to help honor America's original sweetheart, Dolly Parton. Performers include Chris Stapleton, Katy Perry, Kacey Musgraves, Shawn Mendes, Jennifer Nettles, Willie Nelson, Brandi Carlile, Yolanda Adams and Parton's goddaughter Miley Cyrus, among others.

'THE CIRCLE' - SEASON 2
Ready for more strategic shenanigans? The Circle, Netflix's best reality show is back with a new cast of allies, enemies and not-so-subtle catfish connect and compete for a major cash prize — $100,000. The previously released trailer revealed that Chloe Vetch, a breakout star from Netflix's reality series Too Hot to Handle, is in the mix with her eyes on the prize. The trailer also teases plenty of drama, with one contestant stating in a voiceover, "People are lying. People are not even who they say they are." The trailer ends with a new profile reveal for a contender who claims they are former NSYNC member Lance Bass, though as Season 1 viewers know, you never truly know who is behind the profile.
The Circle Season 2 is available to stream now after premiering on Wednesday, April 14.prev
