All the sci-fi TV and movies streaming in April 2022: From 'The Bubble' to 'Wrestlemania'

We have WWE action, blockbusters and plenty of TV shows hitting the catalogs.

The Bubble Netflix

We have blockbusters, new original series, Wrestlemania(!?) and a ton of fun deep cuts on streaming this month — so let’s dig in.

Netflix has Judd Apatow’s next big comedy The Bubble, about the production behind a fictional sci-fi blockbuster being shot during the height of the pandemic. It stars a ton of fan favorites, including Karen Gillan, David Duchovny, Pedro Pascal and more. The OG streamer also has the fifth and final season of SYFY’s original series Van Helsing, in case you missed it the first time around.

Peacock has the latest edition of Wrestlemania to kick off the month, plus the new original comedy series Killing It, starring genre favorite Craig Robinson (Hot Tub Time Machine), which hails from the creators of Brooklyn Nine-Nine. The service is also adding the first two Fantastic Beasts movies, in case you need to get caught up ahead of the third film this month. 

Disney+ has a relatively light load this month, led by new original Marvel series Moon Knight. Prime Video is also a bit light, led by Season 2 of its original series Undone, while we patiently wait for The Boys Season 3 to arrive later this year. Hulu has the second season of breakout series Woke, and HBO Max is adding the latest seasons of Batwoman and Snowpiercer. Apple TV+ is also bringing a new buzzy project, with Shining Girls.

Check out the full rundown below and let us know what you’ll be streaming.



The Bubble: Judd Apatow’s latest film is a wild, meta comedy set in the backdrop of the pandemic and a fictional, big-budget sci-fi sequel the crew is desperately trying to get made. It features an all-star cast of Karen Gillan, Fred Armisen, David Duchovny, Keegan-Michael Key, Leslie Mann, Kate McKinnon and Pedro Pascal. 

Van Helsing (Season 5): The fifth and final season of SYFY’s original series Van Helsing comes to Netflix, wrapping up the post-apocalyptic thriller about a descendant of legendary monster-hunter Van Helsing as she tries to save the world.

Batwoman (Season 2): The second season of The CW’s fan favorite Batwoman series comes to streaming, where fans will get a chance to meet the new hero under the cowl, after the series went through a major retooling in Year 2.

Apple’s boutique streaming service has found itself another buzzy hit in Severance, which is wrapping up its first season this month. But looking ahead, the service is also dropping the new original series Shining Girls, starring The Handmaid’s Tale's Elisabeth Moss. The show is a twisty time travel thriller, and very well could be our next obsession.
