The Netflix original series is a sequel to their 2015 hit ‘Vikings’. This one is set around hundred years after the final battles of the Ragnar sons in the bloody conclusion of the original series.

Expect lots of gore and tension in this one as the Vikings find themselves at a breaking point with the English royals, and in conflict with Christian and Pagan beliefs.

Disney Plus

Pam & Tommy, 2 February

The miniseries will explore the infamous relationship between Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee starting with their whirlwind marriage, which happened just 96 hours after they met and the release of the unauthorized sex tape, recorded during their honeymoon.

Lily James is barely recognisable in her role as Anderson and Sebastian Stan will be playing Tommy. Also joining the cast are Seth Rogan and Nick Offerman.

Narco Wars, 2 February

Take a deep dive into the business of smuggling syndicates in Latin America and their rise into powerful and ruthless drug cartels with unprecedented power in this National Geographic documentary.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle, 4 February

The second film in the Kingsman franchise will be dropping on the platform this month and the first will follow a few days later. It’s the perfect opportunity to refresh your memory before the brand-new prequel, The King’s Man, is released this month.

For those of you who haven’t seen it, the Kingsman series follows a top-secret organisation of British spies, who work together to stop history's worst tyrants and criminal masterminds from destroying civilization.

Apple TV

Suspicion, 4 February

 Starring Uma Therman, Apple’s new thriller follows the kidnapping of the son of a prominent American businesswoman. When a video of the abduction is captured and goes viral, four British citizens staying at the hotel where he was snatched, become prime suspects.

But were they just in the wrong place at the wrong time?

Severance, 18 February

Another thriller type series for Apple comes in the form of Severance, which follows Mark Scout (Ben Stiller), who leads a team at Lumon Industries. The employees there have undergone a severance procedure, which surgically divides their memories between work and personal life in daring experiment.

Lincoln’s Dilemma, 18 February

This four-part documentary series is a fresh exploration of President Lincoln and his complex journey to end slavery. It will also touch on his complicated personality and the people and events that shaped his stance on slavery, with Jeffery Wright as narrator.


The Equalizer, 1 February

Queen Latifah is returning for a second season as Robyn McCall, an enigmatic woman with a mysterious background, who acts as a guardian angel for those who cannot fend for themselves.

In the second season we find McCall considering ending her work as The Equalizer but is pulled back in when she is needed to help find an untraceable group of bank robbers.

With Queen Latifah now taking on the role of The Equalizer on TV and Denzel Washington confirming a third movie in the separate cinematic franchise, so keep your eyes peeled for a crossover!

Bel-Air, 14 February

In this reboot of the classic 90s sitcom starring Will Smith, we’re given a bit more of a backstory to Will’s life in Philly before he moves to Bel Air, as well as the upheaval of suddenly living in a gated mansion under the watchful eye of his new family.

It’s set to be a little more sinister and dramatic than the comedic Fresh Prince that we’re used to, but it’s clearly going to be one to watch as a second season is already in production.

Amazon Prime

Forrest Gump, 1 February

Prime Video is pulling out all the classics this month for those days when you just feel like a comfort film.

First on the list is Forrest Gump, and if you’ve been living under a rock and have never seen this film, it’s about a man with low IQ (Forrest) who is recounting the remarkable events throughout his life to people waiting at a bus stop.

All he wants now, is to be reunited with his beloved Jenny.

The Good, The Bad, The Ugly, 1 February

This Spaghetti Western from Sergio Leone is a must-see for any film buff, and luckily it’s coming to Prime Video next month.

For those of you who missed it the first time round, this film is set during the Civil War and follows two men, Blondie and Tuco, who have to form an alliance as they search for treasure. Along the way they must outwit Angel Eyes, an outlaw who wants the riches for himself.

The Marvellous Mrs. Maisel, 18 February

It’s only taken them two years, but after an excruciating wait for fans of the sharp-tongued comedienne, this is good news. The fourth season of Amazon’s hit series The Marvellous Mrs. Maisel will be premiering next month.

The series centres around Miriam Maisel, known on stage as Mrs. Maisel, after she is flung into a career as a comedienne after her husband leaves her for his secretary.
