The Best New Additions on Netflix UK This Week (5th February 2021)

If you want to know what to watch this weekend then we’re here to give you the lowdown on this week’s biggest and best film, TV and documentary additions on Netflix UK. Here we will give you our top picks as well as a full list of everything added to Netflix in the UK in the last week. So here are our top picks from this week’s additions on Netflix UK:

It’s a new month which means lots of new additions and we have a great selection to go through this week too – let’s start with this week’s new film additions. Popular comedies this week include Mean Girls which follows Cady who starts a new school and is an instant hit with the A-List clique ‘The Plastics’ but things turn sour when she falls for the ex-boyfriend of the cliques leader. In Late Night a talkshow host suspects she might be about to lose her job but when a new and driven woman joins the male-dominated writers room things start to look up. And finally for comedies we have the action-packed Baywatch where elite lifeguard Mitch Buchanno clashes with a new recruit as they team up to probe a criminal plot that threatens the future of the bay.

If thrillers and horrors are more your thing then there are some additions for you as well. First up is Snakes On A Plane where an FBI agent taking a murder witness on a flight ends up having to battle a horde of venomous snakes. In the Polish film All My Friends Are Dead a group of friends at a New Year’s Eve party go through a whirlwind of events that exposes secrets, breaks hearts — and leads to a shocking outcome. The comedy-horror Anna and the Apocalypse sees a group of musical high school students as they stab, slash and sing their way through a zombie apocalypse in small-town Scotland at Christmastime. And finally for thrillers we have The Reef where a group of friends realise their yacht is sinking but swimming to safety is made more treacherous with the presence of a great white shark.

Other film additions this week include the Korean sci-fi adventure Space Sweepers; the emotional drama Malcolm & Marie; fantasy action movie Next; and the crime film Miss Bala.

Throughout February there will be over 150 Scandinavian films added to Netflix UK and the first batch of Swedish films has arrived this week. Here are some of the highlights of this recent drop. Erotikon is a 1920 classic where an entomology professor’s marriage with his bored wife starts to slip when she pursues two suitors while he begins a risky flirtation of his own. In The Norrtull Gang, set in 1907, a group of working women fight for solidarity and civil rights while living and working in a man’s world. Ingeborg Holm consists of two powerful silent films that showcase the work of director Victor Sjöström, who’s credited with ushering in Sweden’s first golden age of filmmaking and who later had a successful career in Hollywood. And finaly for the Swedish additions we have Irl (In Real Life) where a teen seeks refuge from bullying by immersing himself in an online game when a fellow player wants to meet in person and help him face his abusers.

There are a handful of new and updated TV shows on Netflix UK this week with the most popular being the arrival of all seven seasons of American comedy series Parks and Recreation which follows a rural Parks and Recreation department whose leader is full of energy and ideas but bogged down by bureaucracy and a lazy staff. This week also sees the return of the entire series of The Vampire Diaries where a pair of feuding vampire brothers are trapped in adolescent bodies as they fight over a teenage girl.

We also have a new Original series Firefly Lane about two best friends, Tully and Kate, and the unbreakable bond that carries them from their teens to their 40s. We also have the second season of Hache where Helena works her way up in a heroin Cartel in 1960s Barcelona. And finally for TV we have some more episodes of South Park.

For children and families we have a new animated series from the creators of the PowerPuff Girls – Kid Cosmic is about a boy who dreams of being a superhero and when he finds five cosmic stones that give him powers he uses this to keep the world safe. We also have the film Raising the Bar about a teenager who gave up her spot in an elite U.S. gymnastics program when her family moved to Australia who then enters a competition to help a new friend.
