From ‘Knuckles’ to ‘Dead Boy Detectives’: Here’s What You Gotta Stream This Week – CNET

April is wrapping up, but the month has yet to fork over some noteworthy new movies and TV shows. This week’s slate includes Dead Boy Detectives, a Netflix series that pairs teen ghosts and mysteries and another round of the red echidna Knuckles at Paramount Plus. You can also look out for new episodes of X-Men ’97 on Disney Plus (Wednesday) and The Sympathizer on Max (Sunday). There’s also the season finale of Shōgun at Hulu (Tuesday).

While Netflix previously announced in a tweet that the Sydney Sweeney and Glen Powell-led rom-com Anyone but You would debut on Tuesday, that post has since been deleted, and Netflix did not respond to CNET’s requests for more information. Though the week may or may not bring that romance, you can count on the following titles to fill your streaming calendar.
