Everything coming to Netflix in February 2018

February may be the shortest month of the year, but that doesn't mean Netflix is skimping on the new and original programming. There's a lot to look forward to in February, starting with the first season of the Netflix original Altered Carbon, a gritty, neo-noir mystery thriller based on the book of the same name. In the same vein, director Duncan Jones' long-awaited sci-fi film Mute finally has a release date. (Spoiler alert: it's in February.) And that's just scratching the surface. Here's everything coming to Netflix in February 2018, starting with the Netflix originals.

Altered Carbon: Season 1 — February 2

Richard K. Morgan's series of hard-boiled futuristic noir novels has a diehard following among science fiction fans, and by the looks of the teasers Netflix has released, those fans will have plenty to love about the upcoming series adaptation. The story follows Takeshi Kovaks, a soldier whose mind was imprisoned for hundreds of years after he was killed. In the future, he's awoken and given a new body to solve a murder, kicking off a series of events that leads him deep into a web of conspiracy. This is definitely going to be one of the highlights next month. Check it out on February 2.

On Body and Soul — February 2

This Hungarian fantasy drama was announced as one of the contenders for Best Foreign Language Film at the 2018 Oscars, but Netflix isn't waiting to see the results before giving it an exclusive international release on their service.

The story centers on two strangers who discover that they've been having eerily similar dreams every night, so they set out to recreate those dreams in real life in the hopes of figuring out what it all means. The Guardian gave On Body and Soul a glowing review, calling it a "bizarre and brutal tale of lovers in the slaughterhouse." This is definitely one to put on the radar for February 2.

Coach Snoop: Season 1 — February 2

Starring everyone's favorite D-oh-double-G, Coach Snoop takes the rapper out of the studio and onto the 40-yard line as the coach of a youth-league football team. It sounds like the setup for a sports-themed spinoff of Half Baked, but from the looks of it, Coach Snoop is taking a long, hard hit of inspirational drama, focusing on the real-life stories of at-risk kids fighting for acceptance—and a future—on the gridiron. There's no comedy here, just a Hail Mary aimed straight at your heart, and the eight-episode first season kicks off on February 2.

Luna Petunia: Return to Amazia: Season 1 — February 2

The hit children's show Luna Petunia is returning with a brand new segment, titled Return to Amazia: Season 1. As you might have guessed from the title, with the help of her friends, Luna Petunia goes on adventures and learns important lessons in the magical land of Amazia. Stick it on (for yourself or your kids) on February 2.

Queer Eye: Season 1 — February 7

This reboot of the groundbreaking reality show Queer Eye for the Straight Guy sees five gay fashion gurus–the Fab Five, as Netflix describes them—working with fashion-challenged people to introduce a little sophistication into their lives.

It's the old show rebooted for the world of today, with a renewed focus on acceptance for the LGBTQ community—along with plenty of handmade guacamole and fabulous beards, of course. Check out Queer Eye when it splashes onto Netflix on February 7.

The Ritual — February 9

It wouldn't be a good month on Netflix without a few original horror releases, and The Ritual fills that quota early. The story follows four friends on a backpacking trip through Scandinavia, where they decide to take a shortcut through a densely wooded forest—which, of course, is the wrong decision.

Obviously, the path doesn't lead them anywhere good. Specifically, it leads them into a confrontation with an evil force connected to an ancient Norse ritual (hence the name). The Ritual starts with a fairly standard premise, but elevates it with beautiful scenery and a refreshing self-awareness that takes this a notch above your typical paranormal horror film. Enter the woods on February 9.

The Trader — February 9

This Netflix original documentary offers a bleak look into rural life in Eastern Europe, centering on a man traveling across Georgia selling knickknacks and second-hand clothes in exchange for the only currency with any meaning in a land stricken by poverty and hunger: potatoes. The Trader is sure to be an eye-opening experience. Step outside your comfort zone and queue it up on February 9.

Fate/Apocrypha: Part 2 — February 9

The first part of Netflix's original anime series Fate/Apocrypha was released in 2017 to generally favorable reviews, and the second part of Season 1 is slated to roll out Feb. 9, completing the first season story arc. The stylish, violent anime sees two clans battling for possession of the Holy Grail in a magical war, which is honestly the best kind of premise for an anime series, so you can bet we'll be tuning in.

My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman: George Clooney — February 9

Late-night icon David Letterman teamed up with Netflix in January 2018 for the first installment of his new interview series, which saw the bearded mogul sitting down with former president Barack Obama for an hourlong one-on-one. Unlike most of its shows, Netflix is releasing this series one episode at a time, and the next one will feature George Clooney in the guest's seat. Take a look on February 9.

Seeing Allred — February 9

Netflix is chiming in on the wave of sexual allegations that permeated the news in 2017 with Seeing Allred, a documentary following activist attorney Gloria Allred. As a lawyer, Allred has represented multiple clients involved in lawsuits against famous celebrities, and is a vocal opponent of discrimination. See the documentary on February 9.

When We First Met — February 9

Starring Adam Devine from Workaholics, When We First Met is a comedy fantasy about a guy who found the girl of his dreams … and then blew his chance with her. Three years later, he gets the chance to go back in time to the night he messed everything up to try and fix things. Want to see how it ends? Queue it up on February 9.

Greenhouse Academy: Season 2 — February 14

This high school suspense series debuted its first season in 2017, and follows two twin teenagers who enroll at a futuristic boarding school. Unfortunately, there's some kind of global conspiracy in the works, and it's up to them to stop it before the evil masterminds can destroy the Earth. Also, there's a bunch of teen drama and whatnot. If you're over the age of, say, 14, there probably isn't a lot here for you, but if you're a 12-year-old girl, you might just find your new favorite show. Season 2 of Greenhouse Academy lands on February 14.

Love Per Square Foot — February 14

Touted as the first mainstream Indian film to be released by Netflix on a global scale, Love Per Square Foot is a romantic comedy about a man and a woman who decide to get married so they can afford an apartment in Mumbai. As with any Bollywood film, it's bound to be an interesting experience, if nothing else. Check it out on February 14.

Re:Mind: Season 1 — February 15

This Japanese series starts with 11 classmates who wake up in a locked room with no idea how they got there. The more clues they uncover about their situation, the more the threat deepens. Figure out the mystery when Re:Mind lands on February 15.

First Team: Juventus — February 16

Football fans, rejoice! (Well, soccer fans, for one chunk of the world.) First Team: Juventus tags along with the stars of the Italian team as they kick their way through the grueling 2017-2018 season. The documentary miniseries promises to go behind the scenes with the team to reveal their lives both on and off the field. If you're a fan of the black and white, check out the first three episodes on February 16.

Everything Sucks!: Season 1 — February 16

Move over, '80s nostalgia. There's a new decade in town, and it's the questionable timespan known as the '90s. Taking its title from the pre-millennial catchphrase that defined an entire group of angsty kids, Everything Sucks starts in 1996, when VCRs, the Discman, and iron-on backpack patches reigned holy supreme—but only if the bookbags were, like, denim.

If you've been burning for some '90s high school learning, or if you just miss the days when Everclear and Alanis Morissette were the soundtrack for everything, check out the first season of Everything Sucks! on February 16. You might regret it, but that would just mean the show really nailed what the '90s were all about.

DreamWorks Dragons: Race to the Edge: Season 6 — February 16

There's just no stopping this spinoff of Dreamworks' 2010 animated adventure How to Train Your Dragon. With six seasons and counting, Dragons: Race to the Edge is probably the most profitable TV series about dragons outside of Game of Thrones—and the kicker is, it's actually a pretty enjoyable show. Tune in for more adventures with Hiccup and Toothless when Season 6 lands on February 16.

Irreplaceable You — February 16

With a cast that includes Christopher Walken, Kate McKinnon, Michiel Huisman, and Steve Coogan, there's no reason to stay away from Irreplaceable You, a romantic dramedy about two soulmates who find their lives in turmoil when one of them is diagnosed with a terminal illness. And with Stephanie Laing, executive producer of off-the-wall shows like Veep and Eastbound & Down, at the helm, Irreplaceable You is bound to go into some unexpected territory. Find out on February 16.

The Joel McHale Show with Joel McHale — February 18

You may recognize Joel McHale from the long-running NBC show Community or from his E! series The Soup—or any of the long list of movies and shows where he inevitably plays a horrible, morally bankrupt person.

On Feb. 18, McHale lands on Netflix with The Joel McHale Show with Joel McHale, a ridiculously named show that will see McHale going back to his sketch talk show roots, green screen and all. Can we say McHale any more?

FullMetal Alchemist — February 19

Don't get too excited about a Netflix-produced version of the classic anime FullMetal Alchemist—this is a rebranding of the 2017 live-action adaptation produced in Japan, a film that wasn't particularly well received by critics.

It's a tale that happens all too often with live-action anime adaptations. On one hand, they're just too unapproachable for mainstream audiences. On the other hand, they don't usually manage to capture the charm of the anime for hardcore fans. By all accounts, FullMetal Alchemist hit the same pitfalls that sank similar films, like Attack on Titan and Death Note. If you haven't seen it yet, you can form your own opinion when the movie premieres on Netflix on February 19.

The Frankenstein Chronicles: Seasons 1 and 2 — February 20

For residents of the U.K., The Frankenstein Chronicles might already be a familiar show. The series stars Sean Bean as a detective in the 1800s, on the trail of a murderer who may or may not be Dr. Frankenstein. Netflix picked up the acclaimed horror mystery series in December 2017 for global release and rebranded it as a Netflix original. Tune in when both seasons hit on February 20.

Forgotten — February 21

Netflix announced this Korean mystery thriller in November 2017, but few details have emerged from the project since then. All we know is that Forgotten is directed by Jang Hang-jun and is about a man who loses his memory after being kidnapped. Check it out on February 21.

Seven Seconds: Season 1 — February 23

After a tragic, racially charged accident involving a black teenager and a white police officer in New York City, one family fights to prevent a bureaucratic cover-up in this harrowing crime thriller from The Killing showrunner Veena Sud. Seven Seconds stars Regina King and Clare-Hope Ashity as the grieving mother and the prosecutor assigned to the case, respectively. Take a look when the first season lands on February 23.

Marseille: Season 2 — February 23

Often dubbed the French House of Cards, Netflix's French-language political thriller Marseille hasn't made a ton of waves yet—either locally or abroad—but fans of the show have been hoping for a second season ever since the first one debuted in 2016. The show centers on the mayor of Marseille as he squares off against his successor and rival, and it offers plenty of political intrigue and bureaucratic backstabbing. It's a touch formulaic, but it should satisfy any political thriller buff on the hunt for a bingeable House of Cards replacement. Catch the second season on February 23.

Mute — February 23

Director Duncan Jones has admitted that he's been working on this film for over a decade, and the wait is finally over. In a near-future Berlin, a mute bartender forges a path through the city's twisted underbelly on a quest to find his missing girlfriend. Alexander Skarsgård stars, with Paul Rudd and Justin Theroux in supporting roles.

With a neo-noir visual style and a vibe that Jones has described as a "sci-fi Casablanca," Mute looks like an impressive film that should have sci-fi fans biting their nails in anticipation. It's been a long time coming, but you can finally catch Mute when it lands on Netflix on February 23.

Ugly Delicious — February 23

Get your forks ready, because there's a brand new food and culture show on the horizon. Ugly Delicious dives into on-the-street cuisine with chef David Chang. Rude waiters? Dirty bathrooms? In Ugly Delicious, it doesn't matter, as long as the food is good. Take the trip on February 23.

Derren Brown: The Push –– February 27

Illusionist Derren Brown is known for his controversial shows and psychological experiments, and Derren Brown: The Push is bound to be an interesting addition to the performer's lineup. Most of the details regarding the show are being kept hush-hush, so we'll all have to wait until February 27 to find out where Derren Brown takes us next.

Original stand-up comedy

Netflix has been loading up on stand-up specials in the past couple months, but February is offering a slight reprieve from all the on-stage antics. The streaming service is only bringing three new specials into the fold in February. Kavin Jay: Everybody Calm Down! was originally slated for a January release, but has since been pushed back to February 2. Four days later, tune in to Fred Armisen: Standup For Drummers, which sees the SNL vet on the stage in San Francisco for a taping during his "For Drummers Only" tour.

Finally, February 27 will see comedian and actor Marlon Wayans' first hourlong stand-up special. Wayans teased that it would be called Woke-ish in an Instagram post in January 2018.

That covers all the Netflix originals coming in February. Now let's set our sites on all the other films and TV shows arriving next month, starting with the action movies.

Action

February is going to be a great month to relive the action classics of the past. Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill Vols. 1 and 2 will both be arriving on the first of the month, along with 3000 Miles to Graceland and the original Men in Black, to name a few. On the 8th, check out 6 Days, a 2017 thriller about the 1980 standoff at the Iranian embassy in London.

Aeon Flux (2005)

Comedy

Just in time for the most romantic month of the year, Netflix is rolling out every raunchy, unromantic comedy it can get its hands on. The first of the month heralds five American Pie movies, along with both Meet the Parents and Meet the Fockers and John C. Reilly's irreverent, musical saga Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story. That should be enough to keep you busy on the comedy front until February 16, when 2007's Evan Almighty arrives. If anything, it's the ultimate test of love; if you still have a girlfriend after an American Pie marathon, you know she's a keeper.

Feb. 1
American Pie (1999)

American Pie Presents: Band Camp (2005)

Documentary

For what may be the first time in Netflix's history, the service is introducing what appears to be a taped concert with John Mellencamp: Plain Spoken. By all accounts, the show was pulled from the rock singer's 2016 "Plain Spoken" tour. That debuts on February 1, along with more traditional documentaries like How the Beatles Changed the World and 42 Grams, a look at the improbable rise of the chef behind the Michelin-starred Chicago restaurant 42 Grams.

Later in the month, look for Winnie, a 2017 documentary about Winnie Mandela, activist and wife of Nelson Mandela. That premieres on February 26.

Drama

In January, Netflix added the Godfather trilogy. On February 1, they're doubling down on their gangland classics with Martin Scorsese's Goodfellas. Put it all together and that's practically 12 hours of (almost) unbroken mobster greatness, if you're the kind of person to sit down and watch all of them.

The first of the month will also see the addition of the Ocean's Eleven trilogy (a trilogy until Ocean's 8, at least) and the 2008 Oscar-winner The Hurt Locker. And speaking of Oscar winners, Steven Spielberg's Lincoln is dropping on February 21. This is definitely going to be a great month for cinema buffs.

Feb. 1
Goodfellas (1990)

Ocean's Eleven (2001)

Ocean's Twelve (2004)

Ocean's Thirteen (2007)

Feb. 26
Heyday of the Insensitive Bastards (2017)

People You May Know (2017)

Family

Perhaps mercifully, Netflix is only adding two family films in February. Less mercifully, one of them is The Emoji Movie, one of the most soul-crushingly bad animated outings in history. (And remember, this is the same universe where Norm of the North exists.) You can look forward to that on February 8. Ella Enchanted also arrives at the start of the month, and that's perfectly fine.

Feb. 1
Ella Enchanted (2004)

Feb. 8
The Emoji Movie (2017)

Thrillers

Bundle up and stay warm next month with a handful of brand new thrillers. The screams start on February 1 Scream 3 and continue the following day with the 2016 Cabin Fever remake. Blood Money follows on February 17, two days before Dismissed. Finally, February 24 sees the arrival of Jeepers Creepers 3. It's not much, but it should give you something to do on those cold, snowy nights.

Feb. 1
Scream 3 (2000)

Feb. 2
Cabin Fever (2002)

Feb. 17
Blood Money (2017)

Feb. 19
Dismissed (2017)

Feb. 24
Jeepers Creepers 3 (2017)

Television

Fans of thrilling television will have a lot to look forward to come February. On the first of the month, Season 4 of Z Nation arrives, followed by Season 1 of Valor on the 6th and Season 1 of The Imposters on February 7. Finally, keep an eye out for Season 5 of Bates Motel on the 20th. The fifth and final season may be the best of them all, and it definitely brings the horror drama to a satisfying conclusion.

Feb. 6
Valor: Season 1 (2017-2018)

Feb. 7
Imposters: Season 1 (2017)
