It’s getting warmer out there, but NetflixCrave and Amazon Prime Video want you to keep your butt firmly planted in your favourite chair as the days get longer.

After a flurry of well-received titles in March, including Triple Frontierand The Highwaymen, Netflix will turn to its go-to heartthrob Noah Centineo to keep things steamy in The Perfect Date. In the film, Centineo plays Brooks Rattigan, a high schooler who by his own admission has “always wanted to date the most popular girl, drive the nicest car and go to the fanciest school.” To save up for college, Brooks creates an app where anyone can pay him to play the perfect stand-in boyfriend for any occasion.

Netflix will also offer up another instalment in its dark reboot of Sabrina the Teenage Witch. Part 2 of the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina finds Sabrina exploring her darker side, curious to learn more about her heritage, while struggling to maintain her friendships in the mortal world.

The streamer will also pitch a new take on the zombie apocalypse with its gruesome Black Summer. And a new wildlife documentary series Our Planet will mix exhilarating visuals and stunning footage of rarely-seen animals to examine humanity’s impact on the planet’s habitats and species.

Fans of Captain Marvel star Brie Larson will finally get a chance to see her directorial debut Unicorn Store. In the film, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2017, Larson plays Kit, a twenty-something dreamer who receives an invitation that will fulfil her childhood dreams.

Over at Crave, winter will finally be here as HBO begins to unravel the final season of Game of Thrones with its 54-minute Season 8 premiere on April 14.

“The end of the world might be coming soon, but at least he’s in love with somebody and knows who he is — and then comes a sledgehammer,” Kit Harington, who plays Jon Snow, told EW teasing the Season 8 storyline.

Crave is also where you’ll find DC’s Doom Patrol, which follows a group of super-powered outsiders who fight for a world that wants nothing to do with them. Warrior, a series based on the writings of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, will also debut this month.

Meanwhile, Amazon Prime Video will unveil the second season of The Tick and another season of Bosch, which finds the titular character (Titus Welliver) investigating a murder at a Hollywood pharmacy that exposes an intricate opioid ring.
