Em and Dex Netflix One Day CAT2

Whether you’re in a committed relationship or single (as a Pringle), we’ve just found the romantic show you need to watch on Netflix this Valentine’s Week.

One Day, which is currently number four on the streamer’s top ten most-watched series list, just arrived on Netflix on February 8. And it didn’t take long for the British romance drama, which is inspired by David Nicholls’s novel of the same name and the 2011 film starring Anne Hathaway, to capture audiences’ hearts.  

So, what is One Day about? Throughout 14 episodes, the series follows two close friends named Emma (Ambika Mod) and Dexter (Leo Woodall, who you may recognize from The White Lotus). After meeting on the night of their graduation, they go their separate ways. But the show continues to follow the two main leads years after they first crossed paths. 

Not only have viewers on social media fallen head over heels for One Day, but some of our PureWow editors seem to have too. 

PureWow Senior Editor Dana Dickey shared how she sat down to watch One Day with her significant other and completely fell in love with the series. “My BF suggested we watch the first episode last night, and it totally melted my Grinch heart,” she explained.

Dickey also praised White Lotus star Leo Woodall for his charming portrayal of Dex, revealing, “It stars the hot rent boy from the last season of White Lotus! He shows a tender side. And the plucky heroine has a playful aggression borne of insecurity that is totally relatable!”

PureWow Assistant Sales and Deals Editor Destinee Scott went on to share what makes One Day such a heartwarming watch. “I started watching it over the weekend and I finished last night. It is such a refreshing and homey love story—made me cry too.” And she says it helps that the episodes are “short,” with some being only 19 minutes long.

And this editor (Karelle) fell in love with the series after watching the first episode. It’s a beautiful, heart-wrenching show that captures the complexities of young love so well.

PureWow Executive Editor Alexia Dellner explained how she’s been seeing One Day all over her social media. “This is all over my feed,” she said.
