There’s also the new Netflix reality series Perfect Match, a strategic and seductive dating competition where couples who prove their compatibility gain the power to make or break other matches. The series features a roster of contestants and fan favourites from previous Netflix series including Love Is Blind and Too Hot to Handle. It debuts on Valentine’s Day (Tuesday, February 14) with new episodes weekly.

Turning from love to obsession, the Netflix psychological thriller series You returns for the first part of its fourth season on Thursday, February 9th. Starting anew in London, Joe Goldberg (Penn Badgley) vows to bury the past and be his best self. But on the rocky road to redemption, a new obsession starts to take hold.

In the Netflix family comedy adventure We Have a Ghost, a family moves into a new home and discovers it’s haunted by a ghost they name Ernest (David Harbour of Stranger Things), who is unable to speak or remember his old life. The family and Ernest become overnight social media sensations but, after they begin digging into the mystery of Ernest’s past, they become the targets of a shadowy government agency. Also starring Anthony Mackie and Jennifer Coolidge, the film premieres on Netflix on Friday, February 24th.

The Netflix documentary Gunther’s Millions tells the story of the world’s richest dog, Gunther VI. When German Countess Karlotta Leibenstein died in 1992, she left her entire $80 million fortune to her beloved German shepherd Gunther III (Gunther VI’s grandfather). Three decades later, Gunther VI’s vast empire is worth $400 million and spans two continents, including luxurious mansions, a glamorous entourage, and even a pop music group.

Debuting on Netflix on Wednesday, February 1st, this four-part investigative documentary series crisscrosses the globe to explore how the dog has amassed his riches and what the humans who run the canine’s estate have done with the cash — including family friend Maurizio Mian, an Italian celebrity known for tenuous ties to the mafia and his cult-like entourage.

Theatrically released films debuting on Netflix in February include All My Life, Blow, Blue Valentine, Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous, Mystic River, Spawn, and The Wedding Planner (all on Feb. 1), The Spectacular Now (Feb. 5), Medieval (Feb. 7), Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Love Actually (Feb. 10), The Mummy and The Purge (Feb. 17), I Care a Lot (Feb. 19), Rocketman (Feb. 20), Altar Boy (Feb. 21), French Exit and Our Friend (Feb. 26), and The Net (Feb. 28).
