Happy April! Finally, it's spring, and it's about time if you ask us. The sun's coming out more, the weather's starting to warm up — oh, and a ton of new releases and nostalgic favorites are making their way to the streaming giant Netflix.

What's in store for April, you ask? A figurative ton of original series (such as The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina), at least one of your favorite movies from your childhood (like Spy Kids or The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants), and more than a few extremely sad departures from the service. 

Below, see what's coming and what's leaving Netflix in April — and brace yourself for some additional bad news about your subscription price going up.

Everyone has to be looking forward to The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina part 2.

This new season of Sabrina picks up right where the first one left off, but it's much darker than its predecessor. Sabrina signed the Book of the Beast, she's giving herself to the darker side, and she's exploring what it really means to be a member of the Church of the Night. 

Sabrina gets caught up in a love triangle as well and has to figure out her love life while she navigates this new side of herself. Plus, we may get to see the Dark Lord as a human in this new season. He was always a topic of discussion in part one, but now we might be able to see him in his human form as Lucifer Morningstar. It streams April 5.

If you're looking to try something different, check out the stop-motion anime series Rilakkuma and Kaoru

Rilakkuma and Kaoru might look a little different than the kind of anime you may be used to, but it has a sweet storyline. Rilakkuma is a toy bear and Kaoru is its human roommate. This Netflix original follows their lives together. 

It's a relaxed, slow-paced kind of show, so it's perfect for your cozy nights in. Plus it stars Lana Condor, who plays Lara Jean in To All The Boys I've Loved Before. It streams on April 19. 

The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants is all the nostalgia you'll ever need. 

Every new batch of content from Netflix just really needs a binge-worthy movie from the early 2000s. The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants is all the reason you need to get all of your friends together for a girl's night in. And the sequel is also on Netflix. They were both added on April 1.

If you're anything like me, you're super excited for Spy Kids.

Spy Kids is the action-packed family movie that made kids believe they could be anything they wanted to be. And because of this movie, plenty of kids want to be international spies. The movie follows the Rodriguez kids, who find out their parents are spies and accidentally become spies themselves.

Captain Marvel herself directed and stars in Unicorn Store.

In this movie, Brie Larson plays an art school dropout who moves back in with her parents. She fears her life has become stagnant like everyone of college age fears at one point or another — but then she finds a magical store. Samuel L. Jackson plays a salesman who is willing to sell her anything she wants. This one streams on April 5. 

If you like a family sitcom with a twist, No Good Nick might be for you. 

This Netflix original series follows the Thompson family, who is shocked when 13-year-old Nick knocks on their door and claims to be a relative. They invite her into their home, but as time goes on, the family begins to think that Nick isn't who she says she is. 

Discover nature with the show You vs. Wild.

This is another Netflix original that will make watchers want to explore the wild. This interactive show is hosted by survival expert Bear Grylls as he takes viewers along on his adventures. This series' interactive feature has already been seen in the special "Bandersnatch" episode of Black Mirror, and it really does add something new to the experience. It streams on April 10.

Oh, and some more not-great news you should know: Netflix is raising its prices next month. 

Your Netflix subscription is going to change in more than one way. April is the last month that Netflix subscribers will pay for the subscription at its current price. Next month, prices go up by one or two dollars. The basic plan will go from $8 to $9, the standard plan will go from $11 to $13, and premium plans will go from $14 to $16. Subscribers are safe for now, but will have to pay the higher prices in May with their next billing cycles.
