We call all rejoice that at least one thing in this world has gone right: January has finally ended. Actually, make that two things because with the start of a new month comes a list of new movies and series to stream in case you ever need to escape reality.
This February, we’ve made it clear that we’re pretty excited for P.S. I Still Love You (February 12) where Lana Condor and Noah Centineo will be reprising their roles to fill our lives with much-needed kilig. But that’s just the tip of the treasure trove Netflix has in store for its subscribers this month.
