As we approach April, here is a look at all the new Star Originals coming to Disney+, which include new episodes of Helstrom, Love Victor, Big Sky and Solar Opposites.  Plus there will be other new shows heading to Disney+ around the world.

Unlike Disney+ Originals, the availability of Star Originals can vary between countries due to pre-existing streaming contracts.

Here’s a look at some of the “Star Originals” coming in April



Big Sky (UK/Ireland/Australia/New Zealand)

Storyteller David E. Kelly (“Big Little Lies”) presents a series about private detectives Cassie Dewell and Cody Hoyt, who join forces with Cody’s estranged wife and ex-cop, Jenny Hoyt, to search for two sisters who have been kidnapped by a truck driver on a remote highway in Montana. When they discover that these are not the only girls who have disappeared in the area, they must race against the clock to stop the killer before another woman is taken. Based on the series of books by C.J. Box, the series stars Katheryn Winnick, Kylie Bunbury and Ryan Phillippe.

New episodes will be available every Friday throughout April.



Love, Victor (UK/Ireland/Australia/New Zealand/Canada)

“Love, Victor” is set in the world of the groundbreaking movie, “Love, Simon,” which was inspired by Becky Albertalli’s acclaimed young adult novel, “Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda,” about a closeted gay teenager who is forced to come out after being blackmailed. The series stars Michael Cimino as Victor, who, like Simon, is on his own journey of self-discovery. Facing challenges at home, navigating the ups and downs of a new high school and exploring his sexual orientation, Victor reaches out to Simon when things become too difficult.

neXt (UK/Ireland)

A Silicon Valley pioneer discovers that one of his own creations – a powerful A.I. – might spell global catastrophe, and teams up with a cybercrime agent to fight a villain unlike anything we’ve ever seen – one whose greatest weapon against us is ourselves.

New episodes are dropping weekly onto Disney+ throughout April in the UK and Ireland.


Filthy Rich (UK/Ireland)

A Southern Gothic family drama in which wealth, power and religion intersect — more correctly, collide — with outrageously soapy results. Meet the Monreauxes, a mega-rich Southern family famed for creating a successful Christian television network. On the cusp of launching a digital retail arm of the company, the family’s patriarch, Eugene, dies in a plane crash, leaving his wife, Margaret, to take charge of the family business. Not surprisingly, Eugene’s apparent death greatly impacts the family, who are stunned to learn that Eugene fathered three illegitimate children, all of whom are written into his will. Now, Margaret must use her business savvy and Southern charm to control her newly legitimized heirs, whose very existence threatens the Monreaux family name and fortune.


The first episode will arrive on Disney+ in the UK and Ireland on Friday 9th April.  With new episodes dropping weekly.


Grown-Ish – Season 3 (UK/Ireland/Australia/New Zealand/Canada)

Zoey Johnson heads to college and begins her hilarious journey to adulthood but quickly discovers that not everything goes her way once she leaves the nest.

Unfortunately the release schedule for this series is different in each country.  Australia, New Zealand, Canada are getting new episodes every Friday throughout April.  The first episode drops onto Disney+ in the UK and Ireland at the end of April.


Genius: Aretha (Australia/New Zealand)

The third season explores Aretha Franklin’s musical genius and incomparable career, as well as the immeasurable impact and lasting influence she has had on music and culture around the world. Grammy Award winner Franklin was a gospel prodigy and outspoken civil rights champion; she is widely considered to be the greatest singer of the past 50 years, receiving countless honors throughout her career.


The first two episodes will arrive on Disney+ in Australia and New Zealand on April 30th.  The series will be released in other regions at a later date.
