This is another adaptation of Jenny Han’s young adult book series with the same title. “To All the Boys” premieres just in time for Valentine’s Day on Feb. 12. 


The gripping docuseries follows the ups and downs of Navarro College’s competitive cheer squad as they work to win a coveted national title. This series came to Netflix on Jan. 9. It is only six episodes in it’s newly released first season, but Cheer is definitely worth the watch, according to its 95% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

At the Season 2 premier of the Netflix favorite, the cast of “To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You” makes a group appearance on the pink carpet.

“I think Cheer is very entertaining. I would recommend it to others because I think that people would enjoy the cheerleaders and their stories. Even if you don’t like cheerleading, you can enjoy Cheer because of the people in it,” freshman Avery Miles said.
