If you’re looking for something new to binge-watch this February, then you probably want to know what’s on Netflix this month. Aside from originals like Locke & Key, there are other movies, TV shows, and originals headed your way. Check out February’s releases below and some recommendations for what to watch. But one thing you should be aware of right away: You can finally disable Netflix’s autoplay feature.
Locke & Key is the latest comic book adaptation to hit Netflix, arriving on February 7–you can get an idea of what to expect in our Locke & Key review. Based on the Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez comic of the same name, Locke & Key follows a widow and her children as they move into their ancestral home after the mysterious murder of the patriarch of the family. Inside this house are mysterious keys with mystical powers that have some connection to the murdered father. You can watch the first trailer here.
Season 2 of Altered Carbon arrives on February 27. The sci-fi series returns, and a teaser was recently revealed for the show. Anthony Mackie stars in the new episodes as main character Takeshi Kovacs. In a show about transferring consciousnesses into new bodies, recasting the star of the show isn’t a big deal. Netflix’s official synopsis of the series has arrived as well: “Altered Carbon Season 2 finds Takeshi Kovacs, the lone surviving soldier of a group of elite interstellar warriors, continuing his centuries-old quest to find his lost love Quellcrist Falconer. After decades of planet-hopping and searching the galaxy, Kovacs finds himself recruited back to his home planet of Harlan’s World with the promise of finding Quell. Haunted by his past and responsible for investigating a series of brutal murders, Kovacs is stunned to discover his new mission to solve the crime and his pursuit to find Quell are one and the same. With the help of his loyal A.I. Poe, Kovacs must now partner with new allies to outwit his enemies and find the truth: Who is Quellcrist Falconer?”
If you’re looking for a bunch of ’80s comedies that probably haven’t aged well at all–because they weren’t that great to begin with–seven Police Academy movies hit Netflix on February 1. You can relive all the wacky adventures of your favorite characters you barely remember like Mahoney, Hightower, Tackleberry, and more. Personally, I recommend the fourth film in the franchise, Citizens on Patrol (its acronym is C.O.P., get it?), as the movie features David Spade as an ’80s skateboarder.
Below, you’ll find all of this month’s releases for Netflix. If you’re looking for more streaming news, check out everything coming to Hulu in February.
