With a new month usually comes new shows and movies on Netflix.

However, April is unusually heartbreaking because cult shows such as “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “The X-Files” are leaving Netflix.

But don’t fret, dear reader! It just seems Netflix is transitioning to host more original content. Even though many favorites are leaving the streaming service, so many new and exciting things are coming.

Here’s a list of what you should be watching.

1. “Thirteen Reasons Why” (March 31)

The famous young adult novel is finally getting the attention it deserves. Years ago, it was rumored that the book was to become a movie starring none other than Selena Gomez. Unfortunately, the film was never made.

Gomez loved the project so much she produced this new Netflix original series based on the famous book by Jay Asher.

2.Bill Nye Saves the World” (April 21)

Our favorite television scientist is back. His new Netflix original series will explore how science is related to politics, pop culture and other topics. Special guests include supermodel Karlie Kloss, actor Zack Braff and musician Steve Aoki.
