Josh Brolin’s Outer Range and Rosa Salazar’s Undone are coming
Imogen Poots, Outer Range
The biggest news about what’s new on Amazon in April is actually about what’s new on the Amazon-owned IMDbTV. The streaming service, which is ad-supported and free for customers, is getting a name change to the very internetty Freevee, which will be really awkward when Amazon starts charging a monthly subscription for it. (Kidding! It’s essentially locked in as Amazon’s free streaming service now.) IMDbTV/Freevee mostly has licensed shows and movies, including Mad Men and Chicago Fire, but it is getting into the original series space, too, with the new Leverage revival and the upcoming Bosch continuation, Bosch: Legacy (May 6). You can see everything coming to Freevee this month below.
As for Amazon Prime Video, this Friday is the premiere of Outer Range, a sci-fi Western starring Josh Brolin and a giant hole. I watched all of it and reviewed it; TL;DR, I enjoyed it, but you might be thirsting for answers after. Other new shows coming to Prime Video include A Very British Scandal (April 22), the successor to the award-winning A Very English Scandal, and Undone Season 2 (April 29), the excellent dream-like animated sci-fi series starring Rosa Salazar and Bob Odenkirk. 
Below you’ll find our picks for the best shows and movies to watch on Amazon Prime Video in April, as well as what’s coming to Freevee.

Claire Foy and Paul Bettany, A Very British Scandal
The Outlaws made some noise late last year, when it aired in the U.K., after star Christopher Walken painted over an authentic Banksy in the finale. (He was supposed to.) But the fact that Banksy allowed it to happen speaks to the realness of the six-episode dramedy, which was created by Stephen Merchant (The Office U.K.) and Elgin James (Mayans M.C.) and feels like it. It follows a group of people sentenced to community service who find a bag of cash, and as we all know, when you find a bag of cash in a TV show, bad people are gonna come look for it. [Trailer]
Josh Brolin stars in this show that was probably pitched as "Yellowstone meets some weird-ass s—, bro!" The Western and sci-fi hybrid series stars Brolin as a Wyoming rancher who finds something inexplicable in the wilderness, and the mystery box opens up for viewers complete with glyphs, strange occurrences, and one giant friggin’ hole in the ground. And does Brolin belt out some powerful monologues? You bet. [Trailer | Review]
Just call it British Crime Story. The follow-up to 2018’s Emmy-winning A Very English Scandal has a slightly different title so it’s technically not an anthology like Ryan Murphy’s American Crime Story, but the idea is the same: British people, specifically royals, behaving badly. Whereas "Season 1" focused on the Jeremy Thorpe affair, this round will focus on the much publicized 1963 divorce between Margaret Campbell (Claire Foy), Duchess of Argyll, and Ian Campbell (Paul Bettany), 11th Duke of Argyll. [Trailer
Tell me about a show that follows a teenage girl who gets involved in organized crime in 1980s Italy in order to impress her father, and I’m interested. Color it with bright neon, Italian cinematography, and promises of violence, and I’m very interested. We’re going in almost totally blind on this one, but we’re going in. [Trailer
One of TV’s truly unique series returns for a second season of time-and-space-splitting, murder solving, and Bob Odenkirk. The animated sci-fi dramedy stars Rosa Salazar as Alma, a woman who, after a car crash, discovers she can travel through time and begins to work with her deceased father (Odenkirk) to find out who murdered him. And when I say "stars," I mean it. The rotoscoped animation draws over film so the performances look fluid and the actor emoting is vivid. But the animation allows the scenery and settings to morph along with Alma’s timely transitions for a series that looks like no other. Plus, it’s GREAT. [Trailer]
