Every month, kawarthaNOW is the only local media source to bring you a list of what’s coming to Netflix Canada.

Maybe because February is a short month or maybe because of the impact of the pandemic, much of Netflix’s original content this month seems to consist of international productions.

One highlight is the British psychological thriller Behind Her Eyes, a six-part series from the producers of The Crown and based on the 2017 novel of the same name by Sarah Pinborough. If you enjoyed The Affair, you might also like this twisty show about single mother Louise (Simona Brown), who takes a part-time job in a psychiatrist’s office and begins an affair with her new boss David (Tom Bateman). Things turn dark when Louise also strikes up a friendship with David’s wife Adele (Eve Hewson). Behind Her Eyes premieres on Netflix on Wednesday, February 17th.

There’s also Tribes of Europa, a sci-fi series from Germany set in 2074, after a global catastrophe has fractured Europe into countless microstates fighting for dominance. Three siblings get caught in the post-apocalyptic war over a piece of technology none of them understand. Tribes of Europa premieres on Friday, February 19th.
