The Flight Attendant: season 2 (April 21)

Kaley Cuoco is back as hard-partying flight attendant Cassie Bowden in this ongoing adaptation of Chris Bohjalian’s bubbly thriller novel. Although when we reconnect with Cassie she’s not partying quite so hard: she’s in recovery for alcoholism and trying to live a new life with her new beau. She is still a flight attendant, though, and now a part-time stringer for the CIA, which means we’re in for just as much intrigue, action, and danger as we got in season one.

Barry: season 3 (April 25)

Bill Hader returns as the alienated assassin who finds a new lease on life when he joins an acting class full of struggling wannabes and never-gonna-bes. After last season’s huge cliffhanger ending, Barry’s acting teacher Gene (Henry Winkler) knows that Barry murdered his girlfriend way back in season one—but does he believe it?

Will Barry get revenge on his former handler, Fuches (Stephen Root)? And where has Noho Hank (Anthony Carrigan) ended up after last season’s climactic massacre? Fans have been waiting a long time to find out.

We Own This City (April 26)

The latest from The Wire creator David Simon promises yet more of his trademark gritty realism and eye for sociological and political observation. The six-part series follows the rise and fall of the Baltimore Police Department’s Gun Trace Task Force, whose entire body of officers were indicted on racketeering charges in 2017. Jon Bernthal (The Punisher) stars alongside Josh Charles, and Jamie Hector in what promises to be an unflinching look at endemic institutional corruption.

A Simple Favour (April 1)

Anna Kendrick’s sunny single mum offers to babysit for her glamorous new neighbour, played by Blake Lively, only for the latter to vanish off the face of the earth. The curious Kendrick decides to investigate and discovers her flirty friend has many, many deep, dark secrets. Director Paul Feig (Bridesmaids) keeps the tone sillier than, say, Gone Girl, but A Simple Favour is still drawing from the same genre pool—it’s just frothy and fun rather than grim and gory.

Gallipoli (April 3)

Peter Weir’s seminal film about the ANZAC landing at Gallipoli during World War I, a moment that defined much of our national character. Mel Gibson and Mark Lee are the two fresh-faced bush boys who enlist in AIF out of a sense of patriotism and adventure, only to run face first—quite literally, come to think of it—into the brutal realities of modern warfare. Close attention to historical detail, Weir’s unyielding empathy for his characters, and the unforgettable music of Jean-Michel Jarre make this a timeless classic.

The Piano (April 30)

New Zealand filmmaker Jane Campion just won Best Director for The Power of the Dog, but she was first nominated (and won for Best Original Screenplay) for this, a sensual historical drama that sees Holly Hunter’s mute Scotswoman married off to brutal New Zealand settler Sam Neill, only to find romance with Harvey Keitel’s tattooed but sensitive ex-sailor. Also features the first screen appearance by Anna Paquin, who became the youngest ever Best Supporting Actress winner for her efforts (Hunter took Best Actress).
