New to AMC+ in April

If you haven’t already viewed The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon free-to-air, streamed it on TVNZ+, or bought on disc, you can binge it at last on the service where it was meant to be be an exclusive, AMC+.

Season one of the spin-off, which tracks Daryl’s journey across a broken but resilient France as he hopes to find a way back home, streams from April 15.

Originally, it was conceived as being part of the Walking Dead universe that would be unique to AMC+ — until it started licensing the family china to third parties to avert turning into the streaming dead.

However, one series that will be exclusive to AMC+ is S3 of teenage spy drama Alex Rider.

S1-2 aired on TVNZ 2 but S3 goes straight to AMC+ on April 5.

Also streaming only on AMC+ next month is S2 of True Crime Story: It Couldn’t Happen Here (April 18), in which Hilarie Burton Morgan (One Tree Hill, The Walking Dead) interviews family members and local insiders to explore the twists and turns of small-town murder cases.

S1-2 of Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta (April 1) chronicles the perks and perils of being born into hip hop royalty in the city that the New York Times called “hip hop’s centre of gravity” (S1-7 of the original series, Growing Up Hip Hop, streams from March 24.)

Acorn TV’s premieres are limited to the excellent drama series, Mayflies (April 1), in which 30 years of friendship is tested when one asks the other to help him die (previously seen on TVNZ 1/+),  and S2 of 2017 thriller Safe House (April 15).

The pick of the premieres on Shudder should be The Tunnel: The Other Side of Darkness (April 15), a documentary that delves into the challenges of how films are financed and distributed, and the lasting impact this found-footage horror had internationally (the movie streams from the same day).

Also new to Shudder are:

  • Infested (April 26), in which a venomous spider turns a lonely man’s apartment into a dreadful web trap;
  • Mute Witness (April 1), in which a mute make-up artist working on a slasher movie in Moscow tries to escape a locked studio where she’s witnessed a murder.

Library additions include Vesper (April 1), Gateway (April 4), and Final Cut (aka Death Games) and 13th Floor (April 22).
