Taking to Twitter, one person wrote: "Hugh Grant wins my heart once again! Omg!" Another viewer added: "I much preferred DEATH TO 2021 over DEATH TO 2020. Diane Morgan and Hugh Grant were the MVPs; but really enjoyed Tracey Ullman, Stockard Channing and Samson Kayo."

A third person tweeted: "#DeathTo2020 was outstanding, and #DeathTo2021 is perhaps even better. Hugh Grant's misogynist anti-woke professor is back and worse than ever, and they've got Stockard Channing and Lucy Liu in to take down American politics. Very dark comedy, but so good."

Another added: "If you’ve nothing better to do then watch #DeathTo2021 on Netflix. Here’s much needed education on climate change."
