Sorry to be the carrier of bad news, but Along the Ride is not coming to Netflix in April 2022. The streaming giant has recently announced Sarah Dessen’s movie Along for the Ride will release a little later than previously announced.
Just like you, we have also been waiting for the film for quite some time. While the film will surely reach the streamer, it will not happen in April. Along for the Ride is a new-age film from the screenwriter, Sofia Alvarez, known for her work in To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before. In Colby town, Auden comes for a summer college. But little did she know she will meet mysterious and insomniac, Eli, who will make her nights fun. The film stars Emma Pasarow, Belmont Cameli, Kate Bosworth, Laura Kariuki, Andie MacDowell, and Dermot Mulroney.
But, as mentioned before, the film is not coming to the platform in April 2022. So when can we expect Along for the Ride to reach Netflix? Let’s find out.
When is Along for the Ride coming to Netflix?
The romantic teen film, Along for the Ride, will be available on the streaming giant from May 6th, 2022. Netflix Film recently tweeted this announcement with some photos from the film. And caption read, “Summer plans may change, but this summer love is forever. ALONG FOR THE RIDE will now debut on Netflix on May 6!”
The original release date of the film was April 22nd, 2022. So, we just need to wait patiently for an extra week. And we hope that Netflix doesn’t change the date once again. (Our hearts cannot bear more wait.)
Why the film is not coming on Netflix in April 2022?
After this delay in release, many fans wondered why the movie won’t debut in April. Well, our best guess is that Netflix wants doesn’t want to clash with the release of another romantic series, Heartstopper.
Heartstopper is a Netflix Original British coming-of-age romance streaming television series, inspired by Alice Oseman’s novel. This Netflix series is coming to the platform on April 22nd, 2022, the same day Along for the Ride was supposed to debut.
one day closer.

Since the trailer and poster release, fans have been waiting for Heartstopper with bated breath. So, it makes sense Netflix wants to avoid any competition and the resulting reduced streaming of either project.
Stay tuned for the teen romantic film, Along for the Ride. We certainly are.
