There will probably never be a day when TV will feel exactly like it did pre-2020. But this month’s slate of new shows is probably the closest things have come since.

Helped along by the heart-of-Emmys-season push of networks and services looking to make a big splash at a key time of year, April is bringing a steady stream of fresh programming. While a peculiar number of these shows are taking IP-adjacent entry points into familiar storytelling territory, there’s a healthy variety in where all those paths ended up.

This monthly roundup, as usual, takes a cross-section of brand new shows on network, cable, and streaming, with a combination of high-profile debuts and potential under-the-radar favorites. April sees the return of familiar names behind the camera as well as in front of it, as well as some reevaluations of historical and fictional figures that have long saturated pop culture.
