Calling all bookworms, you’re in luck because Netflix has a plethora of book-to-screen adaptations lined up this April. Dive into the world of Japanese manga through the live-action adaptations of two best-selling manga: City Hunter and Parasyte.

From the creators of Train To Busan and Hellbound comes a Korean reimagination of Parasyte. After mysterious parasitic creatures possess human bodies, humanity must band together to defeat the growing threat.

In case you’ve missed out on our Netflix guide for March, be sure to check out Chefs Uncut, a Netflix documentary series that spotlights six culinary stars across Southeast Asia. Each episode takes us under the wing of an esteemed chef as they share more about their origin story, culinary style and distinctive technique. Among the six chefs, three are familiar faces from the little red dot: Asia’s best chef, LG Han; Asia’s best pastry chef, Janice Wong; and TV personality, Bjorn Shen. 

Out on Netflix now.

Sex and the City

Mark your calendars because the iconic foursome: Carrie Bradshaw, Samantha Jones, Charlotte York and Miranda Hobbes, are set to grace your screens this April. Sex and the City follow the lives of four women living in New York as they navigate their careers and relationships. Despite their differences, they stand as unwavering pillars of support for one another. Though the series revolves around the never-ending romantic entanglements of the characters, it also sheds light on the power of female friendships. Given that the third season of Just Like That will only air in 2025, rewatching all six seasons of Sex and the City on Netflix might just be the best way to fill the hole in your heart. 

Catch it on Netflix on 1 April 2024.

One Day

To those still experiencing withdrawals (and heartache) over One Day, we have some exciting news for you. Before One Day was made into a Netflix series, the book by David Nicholls was first adapted into a film starring Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess. The story centres around Emma and Dexter who cross paths on the night of their college graduation, causing an unlikely friendship to blossom between them. For the next 20 years, they reunite once a year to catch up on their lives. No other couple embodies the saying ‘right person, wrong time’ quite like Emma and Dexter. Fans of Love, Rosie, be sure to include this in your watchlist; it’s bound to become one of your favourites.

Catch it on Netflix on 1 April 2024.

The Circle 

The Circle is a Netflix reality competition taken straight out of a Black Mirror episode. Contestants are assigned the challenge of fabricating a false social media persona and the player with the most votes will emerge as the top influencer. This is a game of strategy that involves catfishing, flirting, backstabbing–and whatever it takes to stay at the top. Beyond entertainment, the show also serves as a powerful social experiment that exposes us to the disturbing realities of social media.

Catch Season 6 of The Circle on Netflix on 17 April 2024.
