9 New Shows Hitting Our Screens in February
From a fresh season of 'You' to 'Carnival Row'.
So you’ve binged your way through January's television offerings – what will be on your list for February? Are you a Drive To Survive fan? A binge-watcher who can’t get enough of You? Or are you looking for something new, like a chilling true story? Television has a little something for everyone this month, with new shows and returning favourites across all genres.
Below, we share nine new shows and seasons that we’ll be watching in February 2023.
1. Dear Edward
Where can I watch it? On AppleTV+ from February 3
Set in the aftermath of a horrific plane crash, Dear Edward follows a 12-year-old boy who is the only survivor, and the connections that he forges in the wake of the accident. Connie Britton and Taylor Schilling are two of the co-stars of this 10-episode season, with young actor Colin O’Brien playing the role of Edward.
2. You – Season Four
Where can I watch it? On Netflix from February 9
The fourth season of Netflix’s beloved stalker crime series You will be split into two halves, with the first arriving on the platform in early February. This season, following the shocking finale of the third season, the action will take place in England, with Badgley’s Joe finding himself on the campus of a prestigious university. All seems rosy for a minute or two, but where Joe is concerned, nothing can ever last. Tati Gabrielle is back, and a new cast member is Lukas Gage, whom fans will remember from Euphoria and The White Lotus season one.
3. Hotel Portofino – Season Two
Where can I watch it? On Binge from February 12
The second season of this beloved costume drama comes to Binge and Foxtel this month. This series is one for fans of Downton Abbey and The Gilded Age. Set in a beautiful Italian resort, it follows the guests, staff and residents as they mix and mingle. It’s an upstairs-downstairs classic, with beautiful costumes and scenery. Think The White Lotus, but without any of the edge.
4. Hello Tomorrow
Where can I watch it? On AppleTV+ from February 17
This what-if series is set in a retro-futuristic world of hovercards, robot butlers and… timeshares on the moon. Billy Crudup stars as a salesman in charge of a team hawking homes among the stars, selling small-town America on the dream of a better life on the moon. But a dark undercurrent might be at play in this fantasy land, and when the reality of what the team have been selling comes to light, everything they have achieved threatens to come crashing down. This is one of our most anticipated shows of the month and we can’t wait to watch, not just because of the storyline but because of the cast (Jacki Weaver and Alison Pill!) and the gorgeous sets and costume design.
5. Bad Behaviour
Where can I watch it? On Stan from February 17
This miniseries will chill you to the bone, an Australian original coming to Stan set in an exclusive girls boarding school in rural Victoria, where the bullying and toxic culture get scarily out of hand. The cast for this show includes some of our local best and brightest, including Markella Kavenagh from The Rings of Power and Yerin Ha, and is based on a critically acclaimed memoir by Rebecca Starford. It’s a difficult watch, but you won’t be able to turn away.
6. Last King of the Cross
Where can I watch it? On Paramount+ from February 17
For fans of Underbelly comes Last King Of The Cross, a show that follows the two Ibrahim brothers John and Sam – played by Lincoln Younes and Claude Jabbour – in their battle for power over Sydney’s infamous Kings Cross red light district. Can family be stronger than business? What is the cost of ultimate power? These are the questions asked by this miniseries, based on the real-life figures who ruled Sydney’s nightlife.
7. Carnival Row
Where can I watch it? On Prime Video from February 17
Orlando Bloom and Cara Delevingne star in this cult fantasy series, which is back for a second season on February 17. Bloom stars as a detective investigating murders in this fictional world where humans and fantasy creatures interact with devastating conclusions. This season will mark the finale of the show, so fans will definitely want to tune in to find out the ending.
8. Drive to Survive – Season Five
Where can I watch it? On Netflix from February 24
It’s the runaway success of recent years, a television show that has made Formula One a mainstream favourite and turned race car drivers into major celebrities. Drive to Survive returns for a fifth season this month, following the 2022 Formula One World Championship. One driver that we know is going to be appearing in a major way is Max Verstappen, who is part of the Red Bull team and will be one of the figures that the show follows throughout the tournament. Other drivers include Lewis Hamilton, Charles Leclerc and Australia’s own Daniel Ricciardo.
Where can I watch it? On AppleTV+ from February 24
Apple’s first French-language series is here, starring Vincent Cassel, Eva Green and Thierry Fremont. The show is a six-episode espionage thriller about how past lives – and loves – can catch up to our present. The show will combine French and English scenes and is set to be a combination of Slow Horses and The Night Manager.
