Seems you cannot. Netflix remembers what the device was playing and where, so even if you reboot the device it will return to the same state. Switching profiles disconnects Chromecast, so that doesn't work either.

Long story short, one device can watch one video. Chromecast does not count as a "device" - it's just an extended screen for the controlling device, which follows the DIAL model.

This might work..

Create a second account on the device (2nd Android account) and a 2nd profile in Netflix
Install Netflix on the 2nd Android account

On the 1st (main) Android account, get your movie of choice going and then reboot your phone so that it is no longer connected

When the phone reboots, log into the 2nd Android account, open Netflix, connect to the other Chromecast and see if that works. You'd be oln a separate Android profile, separate Netflix profile, separate Chromecast. It might work

Good idea. I definitely know it does not work on the same Android profile.
