It might be a short month, but there’s plenty of content hitting Netflix in February. The streamer begins the month with the premiere of two very different (but very entertaining) series: the second season of Tiffany Haddish’s standup showcase They Ready, and the debut of the based-on-a-bestseller drama about two longtime best friends, Firefly Lane, starring Katherine Heigl and Sarah Chalke.
The first Friday sees the debut of Malcolm & Marie, the filmed-in-a-pandemic romantic drama starring Emmy winner Zendaya and John David Washington, and written and directed by Euphoria creator Sam Levinson. The hits keep coming after that: acclaimed Rosamund Pike/Dianne Wiest drama I Care a Lot; the long-awaited conclusion to the teen fave rom-com To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before trilogy, Always and Forever; and much, much more.
Find out what else is joining them on Netflix and what’s leaving the service in February below.
Description: Once again, Tiffany Haddish will introduce six of her favorite comedians to Netflix members around the world with a second season of the Emmy-nominated stand-up comedy series They Ready. Each comedian, all of whom were again personally chosen by Haddish, will perform a 15-20 minute set. This season features: Dean Edwards (Saturday Night Live), Kimberly Clark (Last Comic Standing), Tony Woods (Comedy Central Presents), Barbara Carlyle (Def Comedy Jam 25), Godfrey (Our Cartoon President), and Erin Jackson (Late Night with Seth Meyers).
Premiere Date: February 2, 2021
Firefly Lane: Season 1 (2021)
Description: The greatest love story of all can be between friends. When unlikely duo Tully (Katherine Heigl) and Kate (Sarah Chalke) meet at age 14, they couldn’t be more different. Tully is the brash and bold girl you can’t ignore, while Kate is the mousy shy girl you never notice. But when a tragedy brings them together, they are bonded for life — forever inseparable best friends. Together they experience 30 years of ups and downs — triumphs and disappointments, heartbreak and joy, and a love triangle that strains their friendship. One goes on to fabulous wealth and fame, the other chooses marriage and motherhood — but through the decades, their bond remains — until it faces the ultimate test.
Premiere Date: February 3, 2021
Malcolm & Marie (2020)
Description: As a filmmaker and his girlfriend return home from his movie premiere, smoldering tensions and painful revelations push them toward a romantic reckoning.
Premiere Date: February 5, 2021
Description: It started with an old love letter — and turned into a new romance. Senior year of high school takes center stage as Lara Jean (Lana Condor) returns from a family trip to Korea and considers her college plans — with and without Peter (Noah Centineo).
Premiere Date: February 12, 2021
I Care a Lot (2021)
Description: Poised with shark-like self-assurance, Marla Grayson (Academy Award nominee Rosamund Pike) is a professional, court-appointed guardian for dozens of elderly wards whose assets she seizes and cunningly bilks through dubious but legal means. It’s a well-oiled racket that Marla and her business-partner and lover Fran (Eiza González) use with brutal efficiency on their latest “cherry,” Jennifer Peterson (two-time Academy Award winner Dianne Wiest) — a wealthy retiree with no living heirs or family. But when their mark turns out to have an equally shady secret of her own and connections to a volatile gangster (Golden Globe winner Peter Dinklage), Marla is forced to level up in a game only predators can play — one that’s neither fair, nor square.
Critics Consensus: A searing swipe at late-stage capitalism, I Care A Lot is an exhilarating, icy thriller with a wicked performance from Rosamund Pike.
