As we head into ECQ Season 3.0, Netflix updates us on what we can expect that is new and exciting. As many of us continue our valued monthly subscriptions, we can look for added kiddie and family features that everyone can enjoy. Netflix provides opportunities to travel countries far and beyond, through our favorite K-dramas. It helps ground us in gratitude for good health with medical series like The Good Doctor or New Amsterdam. And of course, it offers growing families the opportunity to bond with little ones over shows that are family friendly and perfect for movie night bonding, like VIVO.
So what’s NEW on Netflix NOW?
As always, Netflix offers families of all ages, the opportunity to come together and watch original films and series. These cinematic adventures leave room for discussion and bonding. While still other movies will have us singing along, and enjoying our own proudly Pinoy talents on a worldwide stage.
Safety features allow us to give the kids their own user names without worry, so parents can create settings guaranteeing age appropriate content. On top of the safety and viewing settings, parents can now enjoy two new features as we manage our families’ viewing habits.

Beyond these new features, Netflix consistently rolls out content for all of us to enjoy. Because of ECQ 3.O, we have a little bit more time on our hands.
Some new movies and series that families of all ages can look for, include:
The storyline of this animated musical adventure has the main character, Vivo, a rainforest honey bear from South America, journeying to an unknown place. He fulfills his destiny as he delivers a love song for an old friend, and finds friendship along the way. Recognizable voice talents like Lin Manuel Miranda, Gloria Estefan, and Zoe Saldana keep adults and children entertained with a soundtrack that begs to be played on repeat.
This animated American series centered around a warhorse who is transported to a strange land with centaurs of all shapes and sizes follows her journey through this magical dimension.
