The Secret Life of Pets 2 now on Netflix US

Were you back to work today or are you still off for Christmas holidays? Either way, Netflix has some fantastic new titles added today including one of the biggest animated hits of the year (that wasn’t from Disney). Here’s what’s new on Netflix for December 27th.

As we approach the weekend, this is our last major daily update (likely) until December 31st which will see dozens of new titles added.

For now, here’s what you can watch from today onwards on Netflix in the US:

The Secret Life of Pets 2

Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy, Family
Director: Chris Renaud, Jonathan del Val(co-director)
Cast: Patton Oswalt, Kevin Hart, Harrison Ford, Eric Stonestreet

Netflix in the US lost out on its big Disney contract meaning its only three remaining sources for its big films are from Sony Animation Pictures, Illumination, and its own Original productions.

The Secret Life of Pets sequel came out earlier in the year and saw the return of the lovable pets who go on adventures without the knowledge of their owners.


Kevin Hart: Don’t F**k This Up (Season 1)

Genre: Documentary
Cast: Kevin Hart

In this six-part documentary series which focuses on actor Kevin Hart, we take a look at his life over the past year which has seen plenty of ups and a lot of downs too.

Here’s how Netflix describes the series:

Viewers will get a behind-the-scenes look at Kevin’s day-to-day life as he deals with the fallout from the Oscar controversy, his marriage, and his growing career.


The Gift (Atiye) (Season 1)

Genre: Drama, Fantasy, Mystery
Cast: Beren Saat, Mehmet Günsür, Metin Akdülger, Melisa Senolsun

Never underestimate how popular Netflix’s Turkish output is as it invests heavily in the region.

It’s about a painter from Istanbul going on a journey as she unearths secrets about her past.
