We’re midway through the week and alongside the announcement of the full March 2021 list for the US today, Netflix US also added another six new titles to watch including some crackers. Here’s what’s new on Netflix and what’s trending for February 24th, 2021.
As we mentioned, the full March 2021 list got released today meaning there’s lots to look forward to. More roundup lists for those as we produce them.
As always, you can find an expanded list of what’s new on Netflix via our hubs which has trailers and more information on each title.
Let’s first take a look at a few highlights.
Age of Samurai: Battle for Japan (Season 1)
Genre: Documentary, History
Cast: Hiro Kanagawa, Masami Kosaka, Hayate Masao, Masayoshi Haneda
Runtime: 43 mins
We often criticize Netflix for sending movies and TV series out to die and that certainly applies to this one and according to our inhouse Japan aficionado, Jacob, this is very much worth watching.
The documentary-hybrid series sets to recreate some of the most iconic battles that saw a power struggle in 16th century Japan.
Ginny & Georgia (Season 1)
Genre: Comedy, Drama
Cast: Brianne Howey, Antonia Gentry, Diesel La Torraca, Jennifer Robertson, Felix Mallard, Sara Waisglass
Writer: Sarah Lampert
The big new series for today (and the major Netflix Original series of the week) is Ginny & Georgia which is often compared as a spiritual successor to Gilmore Girls.
Here’s what you can expect from the series:
“Free-spirited Georgia and her two kids, Ginny and Austin, move north in search of a fresh start but find that the road to new beginnings can be bumpy.”
Two Sentence Horror Stories (Season 2)
Genre: Drama, Horror, Mystery, Thriller
Cast: Lauri Hendler, Wei-Yi Lin, Mardy Ma, Hannah Barlow
Writer: Vera Miao
Our next highlight of the day is often a series that gets overlooked on The CW. The show is a scripted horror series that saw its second season air on the network between January and February 2021 and now is on Netflix just a week after its finale aired.
Here’s what you can expect going into season two (season one remains available too):
“A group of high school students in detention are stalked by a demonic creature.”
