Kevin Hart’s Guide to Black History now on Netflix

It’s time to look at what’s new on Netflix for February 8th and there are a fair few titles to cover. As it’s Friday, that means we’re getting a fresh selection of new Netflix Originals to sink our teeth into. Without further ado, here’s what’s new on Netflix today plus a look at what’s scheduled to leave tomorrow. 

Don’t forget there are some big titles coming out over the weekend including the return of Hasan Minhaj’s weekly talk show. We’ll also see the British series The Break return for its second season tomorrow too.

In total, 12 new titles came to Netflix today so here are some highlights and the full list:

Kevin Hart’s Guide to Black History (Season 1) Netflix Original

Kevin Hart is still under a lot of heat which lead to him being removed as the Oscars host. Netflix has been very quiet about this Original series which is being targeted at kids. It looks at retelling various stories of black figureheads from America.

Fans of Weird Al Yankovic will also be pleasantly surprised to hear that he makes an appearance as does Lil Rel Howery.

High Flying Bird (2019) Netflix Original

Looking for a new sports movie? This may be up your street and it’s scoring great with critics already especially considering it was filmed entirely on an iPhone. The movie takes place in the basketball world with a sports agent pitching a rookie client on a controversial business model during a lockout.

The movie features the talents of Andre Holland, Melvin Gregg, Kyle MacLachlan, Sonja Sohn, and Zachary Quinto.

The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants (Season 2) Netflix Original

Dreamworks continues their TV series adaptation of the movie adaptation of the book series by Dav Pilkey. Once again, Captain Underpants is pitted against formidable enemies as Melvin plots against George and Harold. Expect more puppetry sections, more over the top antics and of course, fart jokes!

Incredibles 2 – Spanish Version (2018)

Most will know that the English version of Incredibles 2 dropped on January 30th but if you’ve been holding out because of the lack of Spanish dub, then now is your chance to jump in.

The follow-up to the 2006 title ‘The Incredibles’ was most welcome by fans of the movie after it took 12 years for the sequel. You may have heard that this is also the final Disney Pixar movie coming to Netflix after the contract ended.

Don’t Knock Twice (2016)

The only other non-Netflix Original movie added today was this horror title from 2016. The film managed to split audiences completely down the middle and now is your chance to give your verdict on the movie.

Starring Katee Sackhoff, Lucy Boynton, Nick Moran among others we see a desperate mother trying to reconnect with her daughter after she’s supposedly become possessed by a witch.
