Here Are The Best TV Shows And Movies Coming To Netflix In February

A new month means new movies and TV shows streaming on Netflix - and February 2019 is no different. While January 2019 saw some truly great movies and TV shows join Netflix, such as The Dark Knight and the Indiana Jones series, February 2019 is shaping up to be great in its own right.

February sees Netflix launching some new series that look like hits in the making - like Russian Doll, a black comedy about a woman who keeps repeating the night of her death, and The Umbrella Academy, Netflix’s latest comic adaptation (that is most definitely not your usual superhero show).

In addition to the aforementioned properties, Netflix's slate in February 2019 includes several classic comedies to brighten the end of winter, as well as some incredible dramas.

15. American Pie

This classic ‘90s gross-out comedy returns to the streaming service this month (just in time for Valentine’s Day?) - and it’s not just the first in the franchise. American Pie, American Pie 2, and American Wedding all hit Netflix in February. These join American Pie: The Naked Mile, American Pie Presents: The Book Of Love, and American Pie Presents: Band Camp. The humor is definitely crass, and many of the jokes have not aged well, but if you loved them when they first came out, enjoy a little nostalgic rewatch.

14. As Good As It Gets

Jack Nicholson and Helen Hunt star in this Oscar-winning drama about an unlikely friendship. Nicholson’s Melvin is a miserable, rude, and obsessive-compulsive writer who finds himself thrown into the lives of those around him when his hospitalized neighbor needs him to care for a dog, and a favorite waitress can’t serve him breakfast; it may sound like a simple (and strange) premise, but this is a tear-jerker and a laugh-out-loud movie at the same time.

13. Billy Elliot

Another film with a presence at the Oscars (nominated for three, including Best Actress and Best Writing), Billy Elliot has since spawned a smash-hit musical. This beautiful film tells the story of a young boy growing up in England in the ‘80s, and whose working-class family are less-than-thrilled about his incredible passion for ballet. Watching his family fall apart while he fights for his dream is the definition of inspirational.

12. Jaws

Robert Shaw Roy Scheider and Richard Dreyfuss in Jaws

A little classic horror, for those viewers not in the mood for the heartwarming or vulgar on the first of the month. Jaws will come to the streaming service, joined by Jaws 2, Jaws 3, and Jaws: The Revenge. Time for a movie marathon of watching people get eaten alive by killer sharks - just in case anyone was tempted to get in the water in winter, these movies will definitely put you off! Netflix doesn’t always have entire franchises available at the same time, so take advantage of this classic.

11. Pretty In Pink

Pretty in Pink

Another one for classic movie lovers (but with far less blood and screaming), John Hughes' '80s classic Pretty in Pink is also arriving this month. Starring Molly Ringwald as Andie, the teenage girl who must choose between her quirky male friend and her new crush - a rich boy who seems to like her despite her lack of popularity. The plot may seem very simple now, but Pretty in Pink remains one of the biggest classics from the '80s.

10. Russian Doll (Season 1)

Created by Amy Poehler, Russian Doll stars Natasha Lyonne (who has also starred in Netflix's Orange Is The New Black), and it promises to be a phenomenal new black comedy. The series takes place on the evening of Nadia’s (Lyonne) birthday party - during which she dies. A simple tragedy… until she comes back, and starts to repeat the night over and over, dying each time in a different way as she struggles to understand what is happening to her.

9. The Edge Of Seventeen

Fans of Sex Education and Big Mouth will be especially interested in The Edge of Seventeen - a film that takes a comedic look at the worst parts of being an adolescent. The film stars Hailee Steinfeld as Nadine, a high school junior whose best friend starts dating her boyfriend. Awkwardness and heartfelt emotion ensue. It may seem like just another coming of age drama, but this beautiful and sharply-written movie shows exactly what the genre should be.
