For the past three years, Netflix has kept its Valentine's Day date with viewers, dropping a new installment in the To All the Boys franchise each year. We see the rom-com series coming to a close this year with To All the Boys: Always and Forever, releasing just in time for Valentine’s Day.
Despite the fact that it’s all about love this weekend, there aren't too many new romantic shows or films releasing this weekend. We have two thriller/horror titles though – Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel and LIVE Telecast.
Here’s more on the new titles available for streaming this week.
