As spring showers wane and allergy season comes in in full force, what better reason to stay inside and avoid the pollen than new Netflix releases? If you're a TV addict, you can look forward to Season 2 of Aziz Ansari's Master of None, new episodes of Kimmy Schmidt, and the first season of Archie Comics-inspired series Riverdale. And to stave off your spring fever, Quentin Tarantino's Inglorious Basterds and Season 5 of House of Cards slide into your feed at the end of the month.

Plus, to prevent any serious FOMO, don't forget to snuggle up to The Wedding Planner, Anthony Bourdain's Parts Unknown seriesand Scrubs before Netflix wipes them from its archives for the near future.
