Along with a list of all new content being added to Netflix in the month of April, the following includes previews and trailers for Netflix original series and specials Bill Nye Saves the World, Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return and Louis C.K. 2017.

Louis C.K. 2017 (April 4)

Louis C.K. is quickly becoming one of the most respected comedians in Hollywood today. While being a part of such critically-acclaimed shows as Louis, Better Things and Baskets, he also continues to deliver as a stand-up comedian. When Louis C.K. 2017 is added to Netflix on April 4, it will be the fifth Louis stand-up available to stream on the service.

Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return (April 14)

Fans of Louis C.K. will probably be pleased to know that his comedic peer, Patton Oswalt, will be involved with the new MST3K series coming to Netflix, as can be seen in the trailer below. For those unfamiliar with Mystery Science Theater 3000, it ran on Comedy Central and the Sci-Fi Channel for nearly a decade in the 90s before being cancelled. In the original show, two mad scientists sent a janitor into orbit on a spaceship. There, he is required to watch B-movies. The janitor builds two sentient robots who watch the films with him, and all three provide color commentary for the viewers at home.

Bill Nye Saves the World (April 21)

Bill Nye is the science teacher that never retires and never stops caring about his students. And now that most of Bill Nye’s original viewers are full-fledged adults, he’s debuting a talk show on Netflix that delves into the science of such adults topics as sex, alternative medicine, global warming, GMOs, technology and more.
