Netflix February 2021 - The Best New Movies And TV Shows

After the chaos of 2020, time is basically an illusion to many of us, so one would easily be forgiven if they can't believe that we're nearly through with January 2021 and already looking forward to February. But time, that fickle beast, continues to move steadily on even in the face of a pandemic ravaging the globe, mysterious monoliths appearing and disappearing in the U.S., the President of the United States being impeached a second time, a billionaire and a musician naming their child "X Æ A-12," Taylor Swift dropping two surprise albums, everyone getting in a fuss over Harry Styles wearing a dress, and Marvel not releasing a single film or show throughout all of 2020. 

With time is ticking ceaselessly on, the streamer to beat all streamers, Netflix, is thinking ahead of the curve — announcing on January 19, 2021 what movies and TV shows will be available to stream in February. From a Netflix Original movie that will make you swoon to new series to binge in a single weekend to stand-up specials, documentaries, and more, here are the best movies and TV shows to watch on Netflix in February 2021. Plus, stick around to the end to see what's leaving Netflix next month.

Netflix Original movies you won't want to miss in February 2021

Perhaps the biggest Netflix Original movie of February 2021 is the long-awaited third and final installment in the To All the Boys cinematic franchise: To All the Boys: Always and Forever. Based on author Jenny Han's novel Always and Forever, Lara Jean, the film picks up after the events of To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You, which sees Lara Jean Covey (Lana Condor) enduring a rough patch with her fake-boyfriend-turned-real-boyfriend Peter Kavinsky (Noah Centineo), and developing romantic feelings for one of the boys she'd written a love letter to and whom we didn't get to see in the first To All the Boys movie. After realizing that she doesn't really love John Ambrose McClaren (Jordan Fisher), Lara Jean reunites with Peter and feeling happy even without the fairytale ending she once dreamt of having with him. 

In To All the Boys: Always and Forever, Lara Jean embarks on two trips that will completely change her life and cause her to reevaluate what her future will look like after she graduates high school. Will Peter and Lara Jean stick together in the end, or will Lara Jean decide she wants to spread her wings and be a single, independent butterfly as she heads off to college? You'll have to wait until the movie hits Netflix on February 12 to find out.

Before then, though, there are a number of fantastic Netflix Original flicks to get excited about. On February 3, Black Beach, about a lawyer facing his dark past after he reunites with an old friend, and All My Friends Are Dead, about a group of friends' memorable New Year's Eve party, drop on Netflix. February 5 brings the black-and-white drama Malcolm & Marie, which centers on the title characters (played by John David Washington and Zendaya) unraveling the darker parts of their relationship during the night of Malcolm's movie premiere.

Other Netflix Original film offerings throughout February 2021 include The Misadventures of Hedi and Cokeman on February 10; Layla Majnun, Red Dot, and Squared Love on February 11; I Care A Lot on February 19; and The Girl on the Train on February 26.

Chilling horrors, romantic comedies, and more are coming to Netflix in February 2021

Though Netflix is getting into the lovey-dovey spirit with its original film To All The Boys: Always and Forever in February 2021, that doesn't mean that all its film offerings for the month skew toward the romantic. Some do — like the Julia Roberts-led films Eat Pray Love and My Best Friend's Wedding, both hitting Netflix on February 1 — but others hit all sorts of other emotions, sure to satisfy the various types of cinephiles out there all month long.

Looking to revisit a mind-bending Christopher Nolan film? Stream Inception on Netflix beginning on February 1. Want to distract yourself from the candy-hearts-and-cutesy-card-filled holiday of February and remember the cheery days of December, all while laughing at Chevy Chase's wild antics? National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation is the movie for you, and it's arriving on Netflix on the first of the month. Action movie fans will want to set aside some time to watch Jason Statham in The Bank Job, about the Baker Street robbery that took place in London in 1971, on February 1, and War Dogs, starring Miles Teller and Jonah Hill as two arms dealers carrying out a massive ammo supply deal, on February 8.

Chills and thrills abound in a few more Netflix additions in February 2021. The first of the month brings Martin Scorsese's jaw-dropping psychological thriller Shutter Island, while later, on February 21, both The Conjuring and The Conjuring 2 arrive to the streamer's digital shelves. 

Near the end of the month, on February 26, queue up two movies that are returning to Netflix after some time away, and one that's new to the platform: Captain Fantastic, a comedy-drama about a family emerging from a decade-long isolation and rejoining society; No Escape, the action-thriller starring Owen Wilson as a family man stuck in a foreign country amid an uprising; and Our Idiot Brother, featuring Paul Rudd as the titular character who gives his three sisters all sorts of grief.

Those who prefer their content to be in bingeable format and aren't content with just two or so hours of story will be delighted to know that Netflix's TV slate for February 2021 looks pretty dazzling, featuring a number of standout titles. 

Netflix Original series to keep your eyes on throughout February 2021 include Firefly Lane, a drama starring Katherine Heigl as Tully Hart and Sarah Chalke as Kate Mularkey, two best friends who experience many trials and tribulations throughout their 30 years of companionship; Invisible City, centered around a man who is pulled into a world of dangerous creatures as he goes to investigate a mysterious death; The Crew, a comedy set in a NASCAR garage where a seasoned crew chief (played by Kevin James) who clashes with his team of millennial staff; Behind Her Eyes, a physiological miniseries about a woman who begins an affair with her boss and sparks an unusual bond with his wife; and Ginny & Georgia, which follows the title characters as their small family settles down in New England.

Other TV shows to watch on Netflix in February 2021

Of course, it isn't all about Netflix Originals on the platform, as everyone knows some of the best shows to watch on the streamer are ones that air on other networks first. (Look no further than the fact that in 2020, Netflix subscribers watched an unbelievable amount of The Office, totaling 57.13 billion minutes across the year.) February 2021 will be no different for Netflix. 

Early on in the month, the platform is scooping up the third installment of the anthology series The Sinner, this one centered on a man named Jamie Burns (Matt Bomer); viewers can stream it beginning on February 6. If more family-friendly fare is what you're after this February, the first two seasons of Nickelodeon's iCarly, arriving on the 8th of the month, will do the trick. Looking to balance laughs with thrills next month? Check out the third season of NBC's Good Girls, starring Christina Hendricks, Retta, and Mae Whitman as three mothers who decide to take their fates — and their finances — in their own hands by robbing a supermarket. The narrative that unfolds thereafter is nothing short of hilarious and heart-racing. Good Girls season 3 will be available to stream starting on February 16.

Speaking of heart-racing, February 24 marks the arrival of the second season of Two Sentence Horror Stories, the anthology series comprised of 30-minute horror shorts. The episodes will air on the CW throughout January before hitting Netflix at the end of February.

Stand-up specials and documentaries coming to Netflix in February 2021

In February 2021, a handful of new Netflix additions will make you laugh out loud, and a fair few others will make you think aloud as you ponder the ways of the world. Both the stand-up comedy and documentary sections of Netflix's library will grow a bit bigger next month, starting with the February 2 arrival of season 2 of the Emmy-winning special Tiffany Haddish Presents: They Ready and the February 5 Netflix debut of Strip Down, Rise Up. In this collection of They Ready, Haddish introduces six of her favorite comedians — Tony Woods, Dean Edwards, Erin Jackson, Godfrey, Kimberly Clark, and Barbara Carlyle — who will perform short but hilarious sets. Strip Down, Rise Up is a documentary that explores how women who pole dance are reclaiming their authority, autonomy, and confidence through "movement and meaning."

A few days later, on February 10, the true crime documentary Crime Scene: The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel arrives on Netflix. The first in a series of documentaries focused on crime-scene locations, The Vanishing at Cecil Hotel recounts the events that took place leading up to, during, and after the disappearance and death of Elisa Lam, a Canadian student whose body was found in the Cecil Hotel's water tank. 

For a markedly more lighthearted documentary experience, check out Pelé, which tells the story of how the ultra-famous Brazilian footballer became the sports icon he's remembered as today. Pelé hits Netflix on February 23. 

That same day, Brian Regan's stand-up special On the Rocks will be available to stream on Netflix, and mid-way through the month, Hate by Dani Rovira also joins the Netflix library.

Everything leaving Netflix in February 2021

Netflix's modus operandi regarding content distribution is pretty common knowledge by now: introduce a ton of fresh films and TV shows for subscribers to stream in a given month, but take away a bunch of old movies and series to make room for the new titles. February 2021 will, as expected, continue this trend — and the outgoing titles are ones you'll definitely want to stream one last time before they're gone. 

Early in the month, Erased, Lila & Eve, and Woody Woodpecker will depart from Netflix — followed by Don't Knock Twice and Swiped on February 7 and A Bad Moms Christmas on February 10. The following day, the Will Ferrell-Mark Wahlberg buddy cop movie The Other Guys will have its final day in the sun on the streaming platform, and on Valentine's Day, both Alone in Berlin and Hostiles say goodbye to Netflix. 

It'll be tough to part with all five seasons of Bates Motel, which leave Netflix on February 19, but arguably even more difficult to let go of all the movies shuffling off the platform on the final day of the month. These include the hilarious and charming Emma Stone comedy Easy A, the classic Scorsese crime film Goodfellas, the heart-wrenching romantic drama A Walk to Remember, Clint Eastwood's 2008 drama Gran Torino, the Tom Hanks-starring period drama Saving Mr. Banks (featuring Hanks as Walt Disney), and The Gift, the 2015 psychological thriller that showed funnyman Jason Bateman in a completely different light.
