New movies streaming in February 2023

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

Release date: February 1
Where: Disney Plus

One of the biggest box office hits of 2022 finally comes to streaming. Director Ryan Coogler followed up 2018’s Black Panther with another powerful movie beyond superhero categorization, and managed to both honor and mourn the late star Chadwick Boseman. Angela Bassett has earned an Oscar nomination as a grieving Queen Ramonda, and Tenoch Huerta Mejia’s Namor makes for a complex antagonist to rival Killmonger.

True Spirit

Release date: February 3
Where: Netflix

This family-friendly film is based on the true story of Australian teenager Jessica Watson, who sailed around the world on a record-setting voyage in 2009.

All That Breathes

Release date: February 7
Where: HBO Max

Nominated for an Oscar for Best Documentary, All That Breathes follows two brothers in New Delhi who’ve made it their mission to rescue and rehabilitate Black Kite birds that are falling victim to the city’s deadly air pollution. The film is in Hindi, with English subtitles.

Somebody I Used to Know

Release date: February 10
Where: Amazon Prime Video

Consider this Amazon’s entrant for duelling Valentine’s Day romance flicks. The plot sounds fairly clichéd (career gal returns to her hometown, and sparks fly with an ex), but the cast—including Alison Brie, her former Community castmate Danny Pudi, Jay Ellis, Sam Richardson, and Kiersey Clemons—gives us hope it will be much funnier than your standard Hallmark fare.

Your Place or Mine

Release date: February 10
Where: Netflix

Burgeoning mogul Reese Witherspoon stars in and produced this movie about two best friends who swap homes for a week and “get a peek into each other’s lives that could open the door to love.” Ashton Kutcher stars as said “polar opposite” best friend, while romcom supporting actor legend Steve Zahn, Zoë Chao, and Tig Notaro round out the cast.

We Have a Ghost

Release date: February 24
Where: Netflix

Billed as a “family comedy horror” film (hey, it worked for Wednesday!), this film follows a ghost (David Harbour) inhabiting a house where a precocious teen creates a YouTube channel that makes the family internet famous. Lady of the moment Jennifer Coolidge also stars as a TV medium, Anthony Mackie plays the dad, and Tig Notaro is (checks notes) a “government agent hunting down the ghost.”

New limited series and TV shows

Cunk on Earth

Release date: January 31
Where: Netflix

If you love Black Mirror, chances are you’ll go for this sort-of-spinoff British mockumentary series from Charlie Brooker about a fictitious journalist, Philomena Cunk, who’s popped up in other Brooker shows in the past. Look for guest spots from Kumail Najiani, Hugh Grant, Tracey Ullman, and others.

Fight the Power: How Hip Hop Changed the World

Release date: January 31
Where: PBS

Chuck D of Public Enemy produced this four-part docu-series tracing hip hop’s political awakening over the last 50 years.

Great British Baking Show: Professionals

Release date: February 1
Where: Netflix

While one of the loveliest parts of The Great British Bake Off (or “Baking Show” as it’s known stateside) is the average-ness of its contestants, this spinoff pits professional pastry chefs against each other. That said, we anticipate some truly splendid bakes. The show is presented by comedian Tom Allen and former Bake Off contestant Liam Charles.

Dear Edward

Release date: February 3
Where: Apple TV+

We’re getting major sad-but-uplifting vibes from this drama from Jason Katims (Friday Night Lights, Parenthood) about a 12-year-old boy who is the sole survivor of a plane crash. Taylor Schilling plays his aunt and guardian, and Connie Britton stars as a grieving widow. The first three of 10 episodes drop on February 3.

The Grammy Awards

Release date: February 5
Where: CBS / Paramount+

Music’s biggest night will include performances by Lizzo, Bad Bunny, Kim Petras, Sam Smith, and many others, with luminaries like Beyoncé, Adele, Harry Styles, and Kendrick Lamar battling it out for Album of the Year.

Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 13

Release date: February 7
Where: Bravo / Peacock

The Housewives are obviously a franchise unto themselves, but this particular rendition is always extra juicy, what with table-flipping ex-con Teresa Giudice and her ongoing beef with her brother Joe Gorga and his wife Melissa. The first episode will be a super-sized 75 minutes.

You Season 4 (Part 1)

Release date: February 9
Where: Netflix

Loverboy murderer Joe Goldberg (Penn Badgley) has decamped to London, where he’s now known as Professor Jonathan Moore. From the trailer, it looks like he runs into a familiar face, but also gets a taste of his own medicine. The first five episodes drop in February, with five more arriving March 9.

Love Trip: Paris

Release date: February 14
Where: Freeform / Hulu

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, this dating reality show sees four American women travel to Paris in hopes of finding true love with the Frenchman of their dreams. Episodes will air first on Freeform, with next-day streaming on Hulu.

Full Swing

Release date: February 15
Where: Netflix

Fans of Formula 1: Drive to Survive and Break Point just might want to check out this third installment in the sports-doco series, which follows PGA Tour players like World No. 1 Rory McIlroy, Justin Thomas, Scottie Scheffler, Collin Morikawa, and others across the four major tournaments of the 2022 season.

Star Trek: Picard Season 3

Release date: February 16
Where: Paramount+

The third and final season of this series is something of a Star Trek: TNG reunion, with LeVar Burton, Michael Dorn, Jonathan Frakes, Marina Sirtis, and others joining their intrepid captain aboard The Enterprise.

Carnival Row Season 2

Release date: February 17
Where: Amazon Prime Video

Premiering three years after Season 1, this steampunk-tinged mystery series (starring highly attractive people like Orlando Bloom and Cara Delevigne as “supernatural beings”) concludes with 10 final episodes that will be released on a weekly basis.

Hello Tomorrow!

Release date: February 17
Where: Apple TV+

The ever-charming Billy Crudup stars as a smooth-talking salesman pitching timeshares on the moon in this retro-futuristic series set in a parallel universe (it basically looks like the 1950s, except there are flying cars and robots). Hank Azaria also stars.

Murdaugh Murders: A Southern Scandal

Release date: February 22
Where: Netflix

This one’s for the true crime fans. This three-part docuseries from the team behind Fyre Fraud tells the story of a prominent, powerful South Carolina family that was linked to five deaths in six years, culminating with the murders of Alex Murdaugh’s wife and son. Don’t necessarily expect a satisfying conclusion, though—Alex’s trial is happening right now. We suspect this one will have a Season 2…

Formula 1: Drive to Survive Season 5

Release date: February 24
Where: Netflix

The new Formula 1 season kicks off on March 1, so of course we’ve got to get psyched up by reliving every moment of last year (we suspect Red Bull fans will enjoy it more than anyone else).

Liaison

Release date: February 24
Where: Apple TV+

This six-episode French thriller series starring Vincent Cassel and Eva Green features espionage, political intrigue, and even a dash of romance (it is French, after all, though parts of the series are also in English).

Party Down Season 3

Release date: February 24
Where: Starz

Before Adam Scott racked up nominations for Parks and Recreation and Severance, he starred as the sarcastic straight man in this little-seen Starz series about cater waiters in Los Angeles. Much of the cast—including Jane Lynch, Lizzie Caplan, and Martin Starr—has gone on to bigger and better things, but almost everyone (sans Caplan) is returning for Season 3. As in past seasons, each of six episodes focuses on a different event, allowing for plenty of fun cameos and guest appearances. NB: If you’re unfamiliar with the show but would like to catch up, the first two seasons are streaming on Hulu.

Sports events to stream in February

It’s a big month on the North American sports calendar, with the NHL All-Star Game on February 4 and the NBA All-Star Game on February 19. In between, two of the PGA Tour’s wackiest tournaments—the Pebble Beach Celebrity Pro-Am and the Waste Management Phoenix Open—will take place. And of course America’s biggest TV event of the year—the Super Bowl—is happening on February 12, with Rihanna set to perform in the halftime show. Across the pond, various Premier League rivalries come to a head, and the Six Nations Championship kicks off on February 6.

What’s streaming in March 2023?

Hoo boy March is going to be a big month for streaming! The Mandalorian Season 3 premieres on March 1 (we’ve got all the deets on how to watch it here), as do the newest season of Survivor AND the much-anticipated TV adaptation of the great 90s action-comedy sendup True Lies (both streaming on Paramount+). March will also be a big month for Amazon, which rolls out adaptations of two best-selling books: Daisy Jones and the Six on March 3 and The Power on March 31. Hulu will give us History of the World Part II (yes, with the one and only Mel Brooks!) and a cool-looking Boston Strangler mini-series. And perhaps our favorite show on television—HBO’s Succession—returns for Season 4 on March 26.
