Netflix: What's coming and going in February

New, 13 comments

February is shaping up to be a momentous month for Netflix, with numerous original series and films making their debut on the service.

Most notable is Fuller House, the continuation of ABC's iconic family sitcom from the1990s, Full House. The new series focuses on older sister D.J. Tanner, who finds herself moving back into her childhood home in San Francisco after the death of her husband. Together with younger sister Stephanie and best friend Kimmie, the trio will help one another raise their kids and get through the day-to-day life.

This is one of the most talked-about shows Netflix is set to premiere this year and all 12 episodes will be available on Feb. 26.

Also available on Feb. 26 is Netflix's sequel to Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. Michelle Yeoh returns for a tragic tale of lost love and "one last shot at redemption," according to the movie's description.

Netflix will also debut a few original series. One of the most anticipated shows s Judd Apatow's Love, which stars Gillian Jacobs (Community) and Paul Rust (Comedy Bang Bang) as a young couple trying to navigate the complexities of being in a relationship.

If it sounds similar to Apatow's other hugely successful show, Girls, that's not too surprising, but the series couldn't be more different. While Girls is more of a dramedy that focuses on life in New York City as a young twentysomething with relationship drama thrown into the mix, Love focuses pretty heavily on Jacobs and Rust's love life, with everything else thrown in as an aside.

Love will be available to stream in its entirety on Feb. 19.

Of course, with it being February, there are a few romantic films hitting the streaming service, including Keira Knightley and James McAvoy's heartbreaking Atonement and director Gaspar Noe's controversial Love.

Atonement hits Netflix on Feb. 16 while Love will be available to watch as of Feb. 4.

Other notable titles being added include the runaway hit from Sundance last year, Dope, and the last half of Mad Men's final season.
