As ever, there’s a lot of new content coming to Netflix UK across February - far too much, really, for anyone to watch it all or know what’s going on without consulting a helpful list like this.
So here’s your guide to everything that’s new on Netflix UK in February 2022, with a few specially selected titles to look out for in particular.
Murderville (Feb 3)
Will Arnett stars in a US adaptation of BBC Three’s Murder in Successville. The basic format is the same, with a celebrity guest joining Arnett’s Detective Terry Seattle each week for a partially scripted, partially improvised murder investigation. (Arnett gets the script, but the guest doesn’t.)
However, where part of the joke of the UK version was that the guests were just celebrities (people like Chris Kamara and Richard Osman), the Netflix adaptation is specifically enlisting comedians with improv backgrounds – guests include Conan O’Brien, Annie Murphy, and Ken Jeong.
Inventing Anna (Feb 11)
Shonda Rhimes’ latest Netflix series charts the story of Anna Sorokin, the infamous fraudster who spent four years pretending to be a German heiress to steal from banks and rich society types.
The true-crime series stars Julia Garner (Ozark) as Sorokin and Anna Chlumsky (Veep) as the journalist who cracked the story, and it looks set to be a water-cooler hit just like Rhimes’ Bridgerton was.
Space Force Season 2 (Feb 18)
The first series of the Steve Carrell workplace comedy was, all things considered, an oddly toothless satire of the Trump administration – one that spent more time bashing Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez than the lunar military force it was ostensibly about – but the cast and crew have promised that this series will be different.
Hopefully, it’s a promise they can deliver on: with Steve Carrell, John Malkovich, Lisa Kudrow, Tawny Newsome, and Ben Schwartz amongst others involved, there’s clearly potential for something worthwhile.
One of Us is Lying (Feb 18)
Based on the book of the same name by Karen M. McManus, this teen drama takes the basic premise of The Breakfast Club and spins it into a murder mystery.
The series debuted on US streaming service Peacock last year to broadly favourable reviews. It looks like one to check out if you’re a fan of things like Riverdale, Euphoria, or 13 Reasons Why.
