The Reluctant Traveler — Season 2 Official Trailer | Apple TV+

It’s right about this time of year when the feeling of wanderlust sets in and you start thinking about your next vacation. Whether you just returned from fun in the sun or haven’t been on vacationsince last year, the tail end of the cold winter months prompts dreams of being anywhere but home. That’s what’s at the heart of this British travel documentary, which centers around Canadian actor Eugene Levy traveling all around the world and learning about different cultures. So, if you don’t have anything booked for the foreseeable future, at least you can live vicariously through him.

In season 1 of The Reluctant Traveler with Eugene Levy, the actor, who rose to fame in movies like American Pie and most recently starred in the multi-Emmy-winning series Schitt’s Creek, traveled to locations like Finland, Japan, South Africa, and throughout the U.S. In season 2, Levy will focus on Europe, exploring various destinations, hidden gems, and interesting hotels throughout that continent. What fans love about The Reluctant Traveler is that it isn’t just about Levy exploring new places, but mostly about him getting out of his comfort zone, trying things and going places he never would have otherwise. It’s his neuroses and self-deprecating humor that make Levy the perfect hesitant tour guide to take you along for the ride.

Girls5eva season 3 (March 14)

Girls5eva | Official Trailer | Peacock

If you loved girl groups of the 1990s, you’ll appreciate Girls5eva, a Meredith Scardino-created musical-comedy series that counts Tiny Fey and Robert Carlock among its executive producers. The girl group Girls5eva reenters the public conversation when a hot young rapper samples their decades-old one-hit wonder. The ladies, all now in their 40s, see this as motivation and decide to reunite and reinvigorate their singing careers. But a lot has changed, both in their lives and in the music business itself. Coming up with another hit song and being taken seriously will be no easy feat.

Watching these ladies, including wife and mom Dawn (Sara Bareilles), the hot and ditzy Summer (Busy Philipps), divorced lesbian dentist Gloria (Paula Pell), and the posh Wickie (Renee Elise Goldsberry), trying to not only revive their career, but also get along, is downright hilarious. Girls5eva is also weirdly inspiring and relatable. With scene-stealing supporting cast members like Andrew Rannells as former boybander Kev and cameos from people like Stephen Colbert as eccentric songwriter Alf Musik, Girls5eva is absolute fun. It has been an over two-year wait for season 3, and the show has moved from Peacock to Netflix.

Stream Girls5eva on Netflix. You can stream seasons 1 and 2 on Peacock. 

Apples Never Fall (March 14)

Apples Never Fall | Official Teaser | Peacock Original

Based on the Liane Moriarty novel of the same name, Apples Never Fall is a mystery-drama miniseries that combines crime, intrigue, and the reveal of deep, dark secrets as the show pulls back the mask of a seemingly perfect family. The series boasts an impressive cast led by Annette Bening, Sam Neill (Jurassic Park), Alison Brie, and Jake Lacy. The story begins when two retired tennis coaches Stan (Neill) and Joe (Bening) see their lives whisked into chaos when Joy suddenly goes missing. It seemed, up to this point, that the Delaney family was picture-perfect. But the disappearance unravels a web of secrets and lies.

It’s when their four grown children start to explore their parents’ marriage that they realize mom and dad weren’t the poster couple for marital bliss that they, and everyone else around them, thought they were. Peacock describes Apples Never Fall as an honest show about “what it means to be part of a very complicated family.” That’s something to which many of us can relate.

Stream Apples Never Fall on Peacock. 

Manhunt (March 15)

Manhunt — Official Trailer | Apple TV+

The assassination of Abraham Lincoln is an important part of American history, and Manhunt examines Edwin Stanton (The Crown‘s Tobias Menzies), Lincoln’s secretary of war, and his search to find John Wilkes Booth (Anthony Boyle), the well-known stage actor who killed him. Booth managed to commit his crime in a theater filled with people, yet he was still able to escape. The series portrays Booth’s purported protection by the Confederacy and the massive manhunt to find him and deliver justice. Meanwhile, President Andrew Johnson, portrayed by Glenn Morshower, takes over, but Stanton’s opposition to his lenient policies ultimately leads to Johnson’s impeachment, the first-ever for a U.S. President.

Dubbed a conspiracy thriller, Manhunt, which is based on James L. Swanson’s The New York Times bestselling nonfiction book, promises to tell more about “one of the best known, but least understood crimes in history.” The three-part series is a dramatization of historical facts, giving it more of an old Western, crime thriller feel. This isn’t a docuseries, but for those interested in the true-life story, it’s a worthwhile watch.

Stream Manhunt on Apple TV+.

The 50 best shows on Netflix in April 2024
Richard Gadd in Baby Reindeer.

As we head into the middle of April, the TV rankings on Netflix are a bit unusual. Ripley has fallen off quickly after debuting last week, while original series from March, like 3 Body Problem and The Gentlemen, are still among the most popular shows on Netflix. They've just been eclipsed by unheralded series like Files of the Unexplained and Parasyte: The Grey.

This week, Netflix has added an animated revival of Good Times, as well as a British drama/comedy called Baby Reindeer. That's not a bad way to go into the weekend, but we're still holding out hope for some stronger Netflix originals before the month is over. In the meantime, keep reading for our complete roundup of the best shows on Netflix right now.

The best movies on Amazon Prime Video (April 2024)
Two possessed children look up in "The Exorcist: Believer."

Almost every big movie that was once on Peacock inevitably arrives on Amazon Prime Video. That was part of the deal that Universal Pictures struck with Amazon, so the studio shouldn't be too upset when a new arrival on Prime Video like The Exorcist: Believer suddenly becomes a bigger streaming hit there than it ever was on Universal-owned Peacock.

Similarly, Universal and Illumination's Minions: The Rise of Gru is also experiencing a surge in popularity on Prime Video after its recent arrival. So horror fans and comedy lovers both have something fun to watch as they head into the weekend. Fair warning: the rest of Prime Video's new arrivals are pretty light through the end of April. But as you can see in our complete roundup of the best movies on Amazon Prime Video right now, you still have more than enough options to get through to next month.
