With thousands of titles streaming on the Netflix platform, it’s easy to get lost while looking for something interesting to binge-watch.
Many brand new Netflix Originals were released this week like The Crew, Behind Her Eyes and Tribes of Europa. Each of them has quickly garnered a fanbase, but only two of the aforementioned shows are trending this week.
The streaming platform has a trustworthy mix of new shows and oldies, therefore there is a combination of both that have made it onto the Top 10 list in the U.S. on February 10, 2021.
Need help finding something new? Here is a list of 10 titles that are popular this week on Netflix.
Streaming at number 10 is the romance period-drama Bridgerton. The series follows two families, the Bridgertons and the Featheringtons through their plights during the Regency Era, the 1800s. The families both suffer through issues related to arranged marriages and social status.
Netflix describes the series as, “a romantic, scandalous, and quick-witted series that celebrates the timelessness of enduring friendships, families finding their way, and the search for a love that conquers all.”
The series was recently recognized for breaking the record for being the most-watched original series on Netflix.
Bridgerton has a large and diverse cast. A few main actors are Jonathan Bailey (Broadchurch), Nicola Coughlan (Derry Girls), and Regé-Jean Page (Roots).
9. The Sinner
Next up is The Sinner! Netflix recently uploaded Season 3 of this crime-drama to their platform. This new season features actors Chris Messina (The Mindy Project) and Matt Bomer (Doom Patrol), alongside the series regular Bill Pullman (Dark Waters).
As the show is an anthology series, it is easy to jump into a new season without seeing the ones prior. Season 3 follows the character Jamie Burns (Bomer) and his manipulative relationship with his friend from college, Nick Haas (Messina).
Things go awry when the two are involved in a car crash and Jamie is the only survivor. This launches Detective Ambrose (Pullman) into “the most dangerous and disturbing case of his career.”
8. To All the Boys: Always and Forever
Another one of Netflix’s February releases is the third and final installment to the To All the Boys franchise.

Overall, the franchise is positively received with the first movie, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, scoring a 96% critical score on Rotten Tomatoes and its sequel, To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You, receiving a 75%. The latest movie scored an 80%.
The trending movie focuses on aspiring author Lara Jean while she “reimagines what life with her family, friends, and Peter will look like after graduation.” It’s a casual and heartfelt coming-of-age movie that is perfect for watching with friends and family or solo.
