Elisabeth Moss tries to ID a killer in Shining Girls preview

Apple TV+‘s new thriller series Shining Girls is also a stealth sci-fi show. But we can’t tell you why it’s science fiction without ruining the surprise. Elisabeth Moss stars in the series as Kirby Mazrachi, who was attacked by a serial killer and is the only known survivor. All Kirby knows for sure is that her life has never been the same since that incident. The facts of her life seem to shift from day to day, or even hour to hour. And that leaves Kirby with a flimsy grasp on what’s real and what isn’t.

In a new preview scene from Shining Girls, Kirby learns that another victim may have fallen to the man who attacked her. Unfortunately, Kirby can’t say with any certainty that anyone the police suspect is the real killer. That’s true even when the detective tries to narrow down her choices.

Everything leaving Netflix in April 2023
The cast of New Girl.

Netflix may be the king of the streamers, with lots of new and exciting arrivals every month. But even Netflix has to bend to the fact that nothing stays on there forever. In April, even a handful of Netflix original animated shows are exiting, including Turbo FAST! and The Mr. Peabody and Sherman Show. We’re also disappointed to see Ash vs. Evil Dead leave Netflix, especially since Evil Dead Rise is hitting theaters later this month. But the biggest departure of the month may be New Girl, a hit sitcom that was among the most popular shows on the service.

That’s the bad news. Here’s the good news: You still have time to watch these shows and movies before they are taken off of Netflix. All you have to do is consult our list of everything leaving Netflix in April 2023. Our picks are in bold if you want to save some time.
