The Umbrella Academy season 3 and Stranger Things season 4 are but two of the streamer's most eagerly-awaited genre offerings that we have new updates on.

This latest teen adaptation for Netflix is based on the novels by Soman Chainani, a fantasy series set at a school which takes regular kids and trains them to become fairytale heroes and villains. Paul Feig directs the movie which revolves around two best friends who enroll at the school only to find their ambitions thwarted. Sophie (Sophia Anne Caruso) a wannabe princess, gets dumped at the School for Evil school, and Agatha (Sofia Wylie) who wants to be bad, is placed at the School for Good. Ah, that ole chestnut.

Currently The School of Good and Evil is filming in Northern Ireland. Bearing in mind the calibre of talent involved – and should Netflix decide –  further entries in the franchise aren't out of the question. Chainani's book series wrapped up last year, yet that leaves another four novels ripe for adaptation if The School for Good and Evil proves to be a big hit for the streaming giant.

As it stands now, the movie is scheduled to arrive on Netflix sometime in 2022. In the meantime, check our picks of the best Netflix movies to stream now.
