So far this year, Netflix has been checking off all our boxes with an exciting list of new movies and shows. The year began with the release of Bridgerton, the fourth season of Cobra Kai, the long-awaited movie Malcom and Maire, and the third installment of To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before. According to Thrillist, there is an extensive list of new binge-worthy shows and movies headed our way this year.
Last March, the release of Outer Banks took the teenage world by storm, creating a brand new John B inspired fashion look and an obsession with treasure hunting. The ending of the first season left on a cliffhanger, leaving viewers counting down the days to the release of the next season. The cast and crew members have been filming for the past few months, and it is expected that the new season will come out before the end of 2021. The exact day is still TBD, but audiences are beyond excited. Stranger Things, the beloved show set in the 80’s that caught the attention of most teenagers is also expected to release the fourth season this year, although not a ton of information has been given and because of COVID; there is a chance the installment won’t come out until 2022. Fans of Last Chance U are going to be pleased with the information that Last Chance U: Basketball is expected to release this year.
