We’re all hunkered down these days probably watching more TV than ever before. But what happens if you’ve already binged all of Gentefied and On My Block, need something to pass the time in between One Day at a Time‘s now weekly episodes, or just want to make sure you pace yourself as you make your way through current seasons of Roswell: New Mexico and Brooklyn Nine-Nine?

Thankfully for us there’s a slew of new shows coming our way this month to help us pass the time. From CBS sitcoms starring everyone’s fave Jane the Virgin scene-stealer to docuseries about paying it forward executive produced by one of the biggest pop stars around, there’s no shortage of television content to look forward to in the month of April. Take a look at a number of trailers for these upcoming series below and get watching!

 

Broke (April 2, CBS)

Rogelio is back! Well, sort of. Jane the Virgin‘s Jaime Camil borrows a bit of the brio and humor of his most famous character while playing outrageously wealthy Javier who, with his wife Elizabeth (Natasha Leggero), finds himself needing to crash at Elizabeth’s suburban house along with her son. Oh, and Javier’s fiercely loyal assistant/driver/friend.

La casa de papel (April 3, Netflix)

Part 4 of La casa de papel returns to give us one more look at our favorite heist team and it’s all, at first, chaos: the professor thinks that Lisbon has been executed, Rio and Tokyo have blown up an army tank and Nairobi is struggling between life and death. The gang is going through one of its toughest moments and the rise of an enemy among its ranks will put the heist in serious danger.

Flipped (April 6, Quibi)

Kaitlin Olson and Will Forte want to become the new face of renovation shows. But when they run afoul of a cartel boss (Broad City‘s Arturo Castro), their newfound fame and wealth are on the line. Co-starring Andy García and Eva Longoria.

Thanks A Million (April 6, Quibi)

Every day acts of kindness connect us in surprising ways. Thanks A Million, from executive producer Jennifer Lopez, has a novel concept: 10 celebrities — including Kristen Bell and Gabriel Iglesias — get $100,000 to give away to someone who’s made an impact on them. The catch? Those who receive it must give half of that, in turn, to someone else.

La casa de las flore (April 23, Netflix)

The de la Mora family was not always the typical wealthy and conservative household. Back in the day, mistakes were made and secrets were kept. Now it is time to reveal it all. Giving us flashbacks all the way to the late 1970s where we meet a young Virginia (!) as well as picking up right where we left off (comas! prison! intrigue!) it looks like the final season of La casa de las flores will be one to remember.

Penny Dreadful: City of Angels (April 26, Showtime)

In darkness, everything comes to light. When a grisly murder shocks Los Angeles in 1938, Detective Tiago Vega (Daniel Zovatto) and his partner Lewis Michener (Nathan Lane) become embroiled in an epic story that reflects the rich history of the city. Drawing on Mexican folklore and featuring searing performances by Adriana Barraza and Jessica Garza, this Penny Dreadful spinoff promises a thrilling ride.

Vida (April 26, Starz)

“What would familia be without a little drama?” Our fave queer Latinx show comes back for its third and final season which finds Emma and Lyn (Mishel Prada and Melissa Barrera) trying to fend of gentrification protests while trying to get their ‘Vida’ bar up and running.
