Snuggle up with the one you love as Netflix has a bevy of originals that should be a perfect watch come Valentine's Day. Here are some of the big February premieres that you should pay attention to, along with the full list of debuts below. Happy streaming!

Malcolm & Marie - Feb. 5th

When the start of the pandemic forced the crew of HBO's "Euphoria" to halt production, director Sam Levinson and star Zendaya still found a way to keep working. Secretly shot during the first set of lockdowns last March in Los Angeles, this intimate drama features award-worthy performances from leads John David Washington and Zendaya. The two play the eponymous Malcolm, a filmmaker, and Marie, his girlfriend, who come home following Malcolm's film premiere. As Malcolm awaits the first set of reviews, things heat up, testing each other's love.

To All the Boys: Always and Forever - Feb. 12th

Netflix's hit teen rom-com franchise comes to a conclusion just in time for Valentine's Day. The third and final installment, which was shot right after filming wrapped on previous entry "P.S. I Still Love You," finds Lara (Lana Condor) on the precipice of adulthood. As she gets ready for the next stage in her life, she considers what her life would be like with and without beau Peter (Noah Centineo).

I Care a Lot - Feb. 19th

As we previously wrote when highlighting the film's preview, and its content, as a timely ode to capitalism run amok, the project features Rosamund Pike as a woman who makes her living stealing from the elderly for her own personal gain. Tables turn on her, however, when she steals from the wrong person.
