Netflix is on a rom-com streak right now.
In May, the teen romance Netflix original “The Kissing Booth” — which got poor reviews from critics but was well-watched nonetheless — made its debut. Last week, “Set It Up,” a movie critics love (and certified fresh on Rotten Tomatoes) compelled subscribers. All weekend, people praised Netflix for bringing back the romantic comedy, since it’s long been gone from movie theaters in favor of action movies and sequels.
Thankfully, Netflix has a slew of movies in the same vein as “The Kissing Booth” and “Set It Up” coming this summer —including another one starring “Set It Up” lead Glen Powell.
According to Netflix, more than 80 million subscribers have watched rom-coms on the service in the past year. And that’s nearly two-thirds of its global audience. Out of the Netflix subscribers who have watched “The Kissing Booth,” one in three viewers have already re-watched it.
Since the genre is proving to be successful for the streaming giant, it doesn’t look like it will go away any time soon.
Here’s 5 Netflix original romantic comedies coming to Netflix in the next couple months:
