New To Netflix This Week: Movies, TV Shows, And Original Series

It’s the second week of February, and love is in the air as we approach February 14, aka Valentine’s Day. New TV series and movies are being added to Netflix throughout the week–some about love, and others very much not so. So whether you’re spending time with that special someone, or opting out of the season this year to spend time with yourself, there’s something new to watch.

For Valentine’s Day, you can start watching the reality TV series, Dating Around. This Netflix Original fits into the same style of other reality TV dating shows, so if you love (or love to hate) these types of series, you might enjoy Dating Around. The shtick of this particular show is that a young, available bachelor or bachelorette goes on first dates with five different people. After that, the person picks whomever they enjoyed spending time with the most and then they get a second date with that person.

If reality TV isn’t really your thing, there’s plenty of other new series to watch as well. On February 15, The Umbrella Academy releases on Netflix. This Netflix Original is a live-action show based off of the popular comic book superhero series of the same name. Similar to X-Men, The Umbrella Academy focuses on a group of kids, teens, and young adults–each born with incredible, sometimes dangerous, superpowered abilities–who grow up together in a school run by a famous entrepreneur, known as The Monocle, that acts as a surrogate father and mentor. The students grow apart as time goes on, but come back together upon The Monocle’s death, and reform the team upon realizing one of their own has become a supervillain that might destroy the world.

Also on February 15, the second season of the The Dragon Prince premieres on Netflix. Although we enjoyed it, the first season of this fantasy animated series ended rather abruptly with a cliffhanger, so hopefully this follow-up can answer fans’ questions. The show focuses on two human half-brothers who team up with the elven assassin sent to kill them, in order to stop a war between their respective races. You can catch up on the first season on Netflix right now in preparation for this Friday.
