It is February and romance will be in the air. Here are some of our picks for what’s streaming on Netflix in February.
You can get mushy with the sequel of “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before” from 12 February. Following the successful run of “Parasite” this award season, there’s not better time to catch the Korean drama bug. As Bong Joon Ho said said at the 2020 Golden Globes, ‘once you overcome the 1-inch-tall barrier of subtitles …,’ you can enjoy “My Holo Love,” a new Korean sci-fi romance series, or catch-up with Carrie Bradshaw and friends in “Sex and the City 2.
If love is not in the air for you, you can enjoy some classics on Netflix this February. All seven parts of “Police Academy” will be available for laughs. If you were curious about the movie Spike Lee took a swipe at during the 91st Academy Awards, you can catch the Oscar-winning film, “Driving Miss Daisy” starring Jessica Tandy, Morgan Freeman, and Dan Aykroyd . You can also get a glimpse into Prince’s acting debut in the 1984 musical drama, “Purple Rain.” The late artist played “The Kid,” a character based in part on Prince himself.
February will also see the release of some crime series on Netflix. Among them is “Who Killed Malcolm X?” “Better Call Saul,” the spin-off prequel to “Breaking Bad,” “Narcos Mexico S2,” and South Africa’s “Queen Sono.”
“Queen Sono” will start streaming on 28 February and it stars Pearl Thusi as the titular Queen Sono. The crime series follows the story of a secret South African clandestine agent who tackles criminal operations while dealing with crises in her personal life. “Queen Sono” also stars Khathu Ramabulana and if we go by the success of fellow South African series, “Shadow,” it should be a hit.
