Abbott Elementary Is Back, One Day Gets Adapted Again — and More to Watch This Week
February 5, 2024
Hi,there! First things first: Abbott Elementary is finally back after Season 3 was delayed by the writers strike. And we can't wait to jump back into class with our favorite new "will they-won't they" couple, Janine and Gregory. And speaking of romantic tension, we're mixing up sports and Valentine's Day with a list of throwback recommendations to watch ahead of the Super Bowl on Sunday. Happy viewing!
In 1989, Lisa, a misunderstood teen (Kathryn Newton), turns her high-school crush, a handsome Victorian corpse (Cole Sprouse), into the man of her dreams after a set of playfully horrific circumstances bring him back to life. In 2024, the dating scene isn’t any better, Lisa–we get it! The two embark on a murderous journey to find love, happiness…and a few missing body parts along the way. Only in theaters this Friday!
After winning an acting Emmy for playing Janine, Quinta Brunson's hit series about a group of teachers at a Philadelphia-based elementary school is back with Season 3—picking up at the start of a new year.
After the forgotten 2011 movie adaptation (starring Anne Hathway), David Nicholls' acclaimed romance gets the series treatment. This decades-long love story (now starring White Lotus breakout Leo Woodall alongside Ambika Mod) unfolds year after year on this one particular day as each episode jumps through time.
You know what they say: the book is always better! Before the adaptation inevitably shoots to #1 on Netflix, a read of David Nicholls' acclaimed romantic novel is a must! Dexter and Emma must face the nature of love and even life itself in this page-turning story filled with swoon-worthy romance. People called it one of the most “emotionally riveting love stories you’ll ever encounter.”
