By The Loop HK Staff | February 13th, 2020

With fears of the coronavirus spreading, we’re all spending a lot more time at home these days. Luckily, Netflix is continuously updating its library of films and TV shows. Here’s what’s new to Netflix in February 2020 (there’s plenty more, but these are just a few of the ones everyone is talking about).

Narcos: Mexico Season 2

Mexico’s biggest drug cartel is back for a second round. This time Diego Luna’s Guadalajara cartel leader has grand ambitions of taking over the global cocaine trade from the Colombians.

To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before was a surprise hit for Netflix in 2019, and the company is banking on people tuning in for a second look as Lara Jane and Peter Kovinsky navigate the beginning of their official relationship as boyfriend and girlfriend.

Dirty Harry

This classic action thriller is actually the first in a series of three films. The legendary Clint Eastwood plays San Francisco Police Department Inspector “Dirty” Harry Callahan who’s on a mission to find a vicious psychopath.

The Pianist

This poignant film swept the awards season after its release in 2002, largely thanks to Adrien Brody’s nuanced turn as a Polish-Jewish pianist who fights for survival during the Holocaust.

The Pharmacist

For those looking for entertainment with a little cerebral bite, this limited documentary series follows a Louisana pharmacist as he tries to expose the corruption that resulted in America’s opioid crisis after the death of his sun.

Locke & Key

Based on a series of critically-acclaimed graphic novels by Joe Hill, this new Netflix Original series follows three siblings as they move into their father’s childhood home (after he’s been murdered, natch), and discover that it’s full of secrets.

The Coldest Game

America’s favorite fictional president – Bill Pullman – stars as a brilliant (but alcoholic) mathematician who’s kidnapped at the height of the Cuban Missile Crisis and forced to compete in a high-stakes Chess match against a Soviet champion.

Lady Bird

You may have already seen the latest remake of “Little Women,” the Greta Gerwig-directed feminist tour de force starring Saoirse Ronan as aspiring author Jo March – now, see the pair’s first cinematic outing in Lady Bird, an Oscar-nominated coming-of-age comedy.

The Stranger

Star power abounds in this new series which stars Richard Armitage, Jennifer Saunders, and Siobhan Finneran. A family man discovers all is not as he thinks it is in this drama inspired by a Harlan Coben novel.

Next in Fashion

The Queen Eye reboot has been hugely successful for Netflix, so of course, the company is attempting to parlay its success into more shows. This time, Queer Eye’s resident fashion expert, Tan France, teams up with model and presenter Alexa Cheung to host a fashion competition.

The Goop Lab

Gwyneth Paltrow’s controversial lifestyle website, Goop, now has its own (equally controversial) show that explores boundary-pushing wellness ideas. Watch with a pinch of salt.
