The Netflix teen canon just keeps on growing. Up next on your watch list is this fantasy series following a young woman who acquires superpowers. Sure, it sounds cool but it's not the most straightforward of things to come to terms with, on top of high school, parents and sexuality. It’s from the director of
The End of the F***ing World
and the producers of
so you can trust you’ll be in safe hands.
More Isi & Ossi Isi is the daughter of a billionaire. Ossi was raised by his poor, struggling single mother. They’re from different worlds but realise when they meet that they can use each other to get what they want out of life. It’s your classic culture-clash 'grass isn't always greener' type film with the promise of some class-related drama and a side of romance. 14th February More Love Is Blind
Netflix is taking
for another spin with its new reality series. It's
Dating In The Dark
Married At First Sight.
Netflix explains: "Singles who want to be loved for who they are, rather than what they look like, have signed up for a less than conventional approach to modern dating where they hope to meet the person they want to spend the rest of their lives with…without ever having seen them." It’s blind conversations only until the couple agree to be engaged and start planning their wedding IRL.
More Followers This Japanese original series follows a young woman who becomes Instagram famous out of the blue. We see how her life becomes intertwined with the other women of Tokyo who follow her and, as we all know, social media notoriety isn’t always as glamorous as it seems. 27th February More Lady Bird Here’s another opportunity to watch Saoirse Ronan in Greta Gerwig’s beautiful coming-of-age film, Lady Bird. If there’s a ranking of heartwarming, hilarious, devastating and empathetic high school films of the last three years, this one belongs somewhere at the top of that list. 2nd February More Horse Girl Don't judge a film by its title, kids. It's safe to say that we didn't expect much beyond Netflix's Free Rein a couple of years back. But this promising gem is much less about the 'horse girl' stereotype and more about Sarah (Alison Brie), a woman with an ominous family history and an overwhelming struggle with her mental health. 7th February More Locke & Key If you’re a fan of films like Jumanji, Zathura and The Haunted Mansion, you’ll be on board with Netflix’s new fantasy series Locke & Key. The Locke siblings move to their ancestral home, Keyhouse, when their father is killed under very suspicious circumstances. In the house, they find strange magical keys which hold great but dangerous powers – powers that could be connected to their father’s death. It’s a TV adaptation of a popular comic book series and feels appropriate for family viewing on a rainy Sunday. 7th February More Story continues To All The Boys: P.S. I Still Love You Lara Jean and Peter are officially a couple, you guys! In the sequel to Netflix’s runaway hit To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, we see the pair back at high school navigating the highs and lows of a brand new relationship. Life is thrown even further out of balance when John Ambrose (one of the other recipients of Lara Jean’s secret love letters) turns up. 12th February More Narcos: Mexico Season 2 We’re back in Miguel Ángel Félix Gallardo’s world in the second series of Narcos: Mexico. He’s the godfather of the first Mexican drug cartel but doesn’t quite have a handle on everything. There’s tension between cartels, burgeoning trouble among the corrupt politicians and the minor issue of maintaining control of his growing empire. 13th February More Queen Sono Introducing Netflix’s first African original series. Queen Sono is a crime drama in which our titular heroine is a very talented yet unconventional spy in South Africa. Her mother was assassinated when she was young; while on a case in adulthood, she uncovers secrets about what really happened to her mum all those years ago. 28th February More Better Call Saul Season 5 Two years after the last season landed, we finally have another batch of Better Call Saul episodes to work through. It looks like Jimmy McGill is finally going to become Saul Goodman after getting his law licence back at the end of series four. Yep, that means we’re one step closer to connecting all the dots between this prequel series and Breaking Bad itself. 24th February More Tom Papa: You’re Doing Great! American stand-up comedian Tom Papa’s debut Netflix special is here to remind you that, sure, things may be a bit shit but that’s okay. We’ll all be fine, despite the bombardment of awful news about climate change, the pressure at work and the like. Need to laugh in the face of the mess we’re surrounded by? He might be your guy. 4th February More The Pharmacist Your next Netflix Original documentary takes us back to 1999 when New Orleans pharmacist Dan Schneider's son was murdered when trying to buy drugs. He took it upon himself to bring his son’s killer to justice but, in the process, stumbled upon an opioid epidemic among people his son’s age long before the issue caught nationwide attention. 5th February More My Holo Love Question: Is it possible to fall in love with a hologram? Answer: This new Korean drama series says yes. A lonely young woman finds herself forging a relationship with the first personalised hologram AI. The only problem (apart from being a hologram, not an IRL person) is that the man who the hologram is based on eventually enters her life too. There’s a weird conflict of loyalties, echoes of a Black Mirror storyline and burgeoning romance on the periphery of this one. 7th February More All the Bright Places Elle Fanning and Justice Smith star as Violet Markey and Theodore Finch, two teens trying to heal from emotional challenges in their respective pasts. When they meet, they end up changing each other’s lives forever and manage to find light in seemingly dark places. It’s a touching tearjerker based on Jennifer Niven’s novel of the same name. 28th February More Like what you see? How about some more R29 goodness, right here?
