Best New Series on Amazon Prime

The whole reason we come to the streamer in the first place, new Amazon Prime Video series launches are pure gold. This month, we’ve got a whole host of big new releases, headlined by one major all-out action adventure. Here are the best new series coming to Amazon Prime Video in February 2023.

The Consultant

Oh baby, this actually looks awesome. Starring Tarantino’s favourite anti-hero and two-time Academy Award winner Christoph Waltz, The Consultant is a brutal and bloody thriller that will make you awkwardly squirm with laughter. Based on Bentley Little’s 2015 novel of the same name, the new series explores a sinister relationship between boss and employee. When a new consultant, Regus Patoff (Christoph Waltz), is hired to improve the business at the App-based gaming company CompWare, employees experience new demands and challenges that put everything into question… including their lives.

Release Date: 24 February

Carnival Row Season 2

Big sexy Orlando Bloom returns for the second season of the fantasy series Carnival Row this month and things are looking pretty dicey for our former Pirate of the Caribbean. Set in a world where humans and creatures clash, Carnival Row finds former inspector Rycroft Philostrate investigating a series of gruesome murders stoking social tension. We’re sure there is more to the plot, but even after viewing the trailer a number of times, we’re not quite sure what’s happening. Nevertheless, we were dazzled by the pretty colours, darkened lighting and wild appearance of Cara Delevingne.

Release Date: 17 February

Harlem Season 2

Despite how it looks on the outside, Harlem is fast becoming our guilty pleasure. The comedy series follows ‘four stylish & ambitious best girlfriends’ in the mecca of Black culture in America. Landing somewhere between Sex and the City and Dear White People, the series follows Camille, who may very well be the frustrating character on television. After blowing up her career and disrupting her love life, she has to figure out how to put the pieces back together, meanwhile, her friends battle with self-discovery, the future and big city dreams.

Release Date: 3 February

Star Trek: Picard Season 3

Looking not unlike the Beez himself, Sir Patrick Stewart is returning to the small screen once more. The third instalment of his Star Trek spinoff series Picard hits Amazon Prime Video on February 17, dishing up more high-octane adventures, outer space shenanigans or perfectly orated monologues that will stick in your head for days. This time around, Stewart’s Jean-Luc Picard comes face to face with Vadic (Tony Award winner Amanda Plummer), a mysterious alien captain of the Shrike, a warship that has set its sights on Enterprise.

From there, we also see Ensign Sidney La Forge, the eldest daughter of Geordi La Forge and helmsman of the U.S.S. Titan, make an appearance, alongside Professor Moriarty and some more favourites from Star Trek: The Next Generation. Sure, this version of the classic series is a bit of a cash grab and lacks the heart that made the original and subsequent Star Trek series great, but that isn’t stopping us from tuning in. Set your phasers to ‘done’.

Best New Movies on Amazon Prime Video

While the quality of Amazon Prime Video films is a bit up and down, this month, the streamer has thrown its weight behind a few major releases. Here’s what you need to put on your radar this month.

Die Hart

In arguably his most challenging role to date, funnyman Kevin Hart plays funnyman Kevin Hart, but sort of…not? In Die Hart, the comedy short king goes full Curb Your Enthusiasm, playing a fictionalised version of himself. In this universe, Hart is desperate to escape being pigeonholed as a comedy wingman, instead, setting his sights on being taken seriously as an action movie star. Of course, the only way to do that is to send yourself to ‘action hero school’, an academy run by the enigmatic and hilarious Ron Wilcox, played by John Travolta. Here, Ron teaches Kevin the ropes on how to become one of the industry’s most coveted action stars.

One of the most interesting things about this new film is that it’s not really a film at all. Die Hart started out on the beleaguered Quibi channel as 10 short-form video clips. With the help of Amazon Prime Video, those clips have now been reimagined into a feature film format, giving the series new life on the streamer. If it will work is still anyone’s guess, but one thing is for certain – Kevin Hart will shout 90% of his lines.

Release Date: 24 February

The Estate

When you want deranged and spooky, you turn to Aussie actress Toni Collete. The screen queen stars in this new flick that grows decidedly more sinister as it goes along. The Estate follows two sisters who plot to win the inheritance of their cantankerous, terminally ill aunt, but it turns out they aren’t alone. Other relatives have equally devious designs on the family fortune, which currently belongs to cranky, sickly Aunt Hilda (Kathleen Turner). Cash-strapped nieces, Savanna (Anna Faris) and Macey (Toni Collette) attempt to sway Hilda with a little fawning and flattery, much to the dismay of the rest of the family.

If The Estate feels a little familiar, you’re absolutely right. The new Amazon Prime Video arrives from the mind of British writer-director Dean Craig, best known for his awkward family comedy Death at a Funeral. An all-star cast and a little death? How fun.

Release Date: 3 February

Somebody I Used To Know

Dave Franco directs his own wife in this surprisingly interesting new flick. Somebody I Used To Know follows workaholic TV producer Ally (Alison Brie), who suddenly has her world crash down around her. When faced with a major professional setback, Ally runs back to the comfort of her hometown where she spends a whirlwind evening reminiscing with her first love Sean (Jay Ellis). Insert a mystery lover, some heartbreak and a trademark Brie awkwardness and you’ve got yourself a fairly solid Valentine’s Day rom-com.

Release Date: 10 February
