Coming and Going on Netflix in February 2017

The aquatic stars of Pixar's "Finding Dory."

Pixar’s animated sequel Finding Dory swims to Netflix in February. You can decide for yourself whether it was unfairly snubbed in the Oscar nominations this year.

Netflix’s exclusive new deal with the CW network brings Crazy Ex-Girlfriend: Season 2 with Rachel Bloom and Frequency: Season 1 with Peyton List to stream barely a week after the season finales play on TV.

Suburban sitcom meets zombie comedy in Santa Clarita Diet, a Netflix original series starring Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant as a suburban couple facing a radical change in lifestyle: death! Call it a rom-zom-sitcom.

These are a few of the valentines from Netflix for February.

Among the new movies arriving next month are the based-on-a-true-story drama Woman in Gold with Helen Mirren and Ryan Reynolds, the acclaimed The Clouds of Sils Maria with Juliette Binoche and Kristen Stewart, Milk with an Oscar-winning performance by Sean Penn, Magic Mike with Channing Tatum and friends flexing their talents, the fantasy The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch & the Wardrobe for families, and the R-rated animated comedy Sausage Party for adults.

New TV arrivals include the Emmy-winning FX series American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson and a bunch of new and returning Netflix original shows: the reality series Ultimate Beastmaster, the documentary series Abstract: The Art of Design, the comedy The Sound of Your Heart from South Korea, and the animated shows Veggietales in the City and Legend Quest for kids.

Other Netflix original movies and specials include the comedy David Brent: Life on the Road with Ricky Gervais, the crime thriller I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore with Melanie Lynskey and Elijah Wood, the comic thriller Girlfriend’s Day, Michael Bolton’s Big, Sexy Valentine’s Day Special, and stand-up comedy with Trevor Noah and Mike Birbiglia.

Among the movies leaving Netflix at the end of January are There Will Be Blood, the Oscar-winning documentary An Inconvenient Truth, the cult classic Trainspotting, and Mission Impossible III with Tom Cruise.
