Everything coming to Netflix in February

<p id=Valentine’s Day is on the way, so to celebrate, let’s kick off with… Netflix’s first dating show? Not kidding. In February, the streaming service is launching Dating Around, a reality show about singles going on awkward first dates. It sounds super cringey, but I’ll likely hate-watch it anyway, like I hate-watched the thriller TV series You, which bombed cable ratings before making it to Netflix in December 2018.

Netflix is also celebrating Black History Month with titles including ReMastered: The Two Killings of Sam Cooke, a long-form documentary about the mysterious death of an influential black musician during the civil rights movement. And there’s Kevin Hart’s Guide to Black History, which highlights the lives of lesser-known black historical figures through re-enactments. Hart will be retelling history to a little girl, and it honestly sounds pretty good.

February means American viewers are losing The Big Lebowski and The Bourne Ultimatum, but the month also promises more intriguing storylines, like Velvet Buzzsaw, in which Jake Gyllenhaal plays a bisexual art critic, and The Umbrella Academy, an adaptation of Gerard Way’s surreal comic series featuring siblings with magic powers. If that’s not enough, you can revisit classics like Jaws (and non-classics like Jaws 2 through 4), Little Women, and Pretty in Pink, which Guinevere Beck from You says happens to be her favorite movie of all time.

Note: this listing is for Netflix US. Viewers in other countries will run into different availability.
