There were so many amazing shows keeping us entertained throughout January, that we had super high hopes going into February that the month would be able to keep up the pace. Seeing the slate of shows making their way to the small screen and streaming platforms, we’re sure it’s going to be an incredible 28 days.
Here are all of the best new and returning TV shows coming in February 2021…
The Drowning (Season 1) - Channel 5 - Starts February 1st at 9pm
Four episodes of slick drama The Drowning follow Jill Halfpenny as a mother who's convinced she's found her missing son after nine years. Having not seen her child since he was four, Jodie (Halfpenny) has started to find some sort of stability in her life.
With a fixation on young Daniel (Cody Molka) however, things begin to unravel once more as her obsession threatens to take her to dangerous heights. Is she delusional? Or has she really found her boy? We can’t wait to find out!
The Blacklist (Season 8) - Sky One - Starts February 2nd
American crime thriller The Blacklist returned to screens in the United States in mid-November 2020, and now British fans of the series will get to see exactly how Red's (James Spader) story continues, with both Liz (Megan Boone) and Katarina Rostova (Laila Robins) set to team up against him.
Laura Sohn makes her return to the show, this time as a series regular in the role of Alina Park, whilst the passing of the late Brian Dennehy has seen Ron Raines replace him as Liz’s ailing grandfather, Dominic Wilkinson.
ZeroZeroZero (Season 1) - Sky Atlantic and NOW TV - Starts February 4th at 9pm
Based on the novel of the same name by Roberto Saviano, the world of international drug trafficking is explored once more in a fast-paced drama where the sellers, buyers and brokers are all characters we may find ourselves getting behind.
ZeroZeroZero stars the likes of Andrea Riseborough, Dane DeHaan and Noé Hernández, with the narrative shown to audiences through different timelines. It might be one that’s hard to keep up with if you’re not giving the screen your full attention, but we’re sure it’s one that’ll be worth it!
Soulmates (Season 1) - Amazon Prime Video - Starts February 8th
Anthology series have been coming at us thick and fast for the past decade or so, now. Another is on the way to British shores with AMC sci-fi, Soulmates. With Black Mirror co-writer Will Bridges on board as co-creator, alongside the always-excellent Brett Goldstein, we know the show is a massive recipe for success.
Already renewed for a second season, Amazon Prime Video subscribers will get to enjoy the first run of episodes, which showcased an impressive cast including but not limited to: Kingsley Ben-Adir, Charlie Heaton, Bill Skarsgård, Sonya Cassidy and Betsy Brandt.
Chicago Med (Season 6), Chicago Fire (Season 9) and Chicago PD (Season 8) - Sky Witness - Starts February 12th at 8pm, 9pm and 10pm respectively
The Chicago universe opens up even wider, with new seasons of all three titular series coming to the small screen consecutively on the same night! Now that the shows have started to crossover time and again, it’s important to watch them in the right order if you want to get the most out of your viewing experience.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey (Season 11) - Hayu - Starts February 18th 2021
If drama-packed reality TV is your thing, then The Real Housewives of New Jersey is surely on your February watchlist! Arguably more hard-hitting than any of the other Real Housewives shows thanks to the inclusion of family amongst the cast, the trailer for the series proves that we’re all going to be glued to our sofas as the ladies - and indeed their husbands - battle it out in front of Bravo’s group of camera operators.
Fans of Danielle Staub will be sad to hear that she’s no longer a part of the show. Still, that’s probably for the best, after her physical assault of Margaret Josephs in the season prior to this one…
Big Sky (Season 1) - Disney+ - Starts February 23rd 2021
Based on the 2013 novel The Highway by C. J. Box, Big Sky is an American procedural drama created by David E. Kelley, which premiered in November 2020 on ABC in the States. With star power that includes Kylie Bunbury and Ryan Phillippe, it’s hard to see how this doesn’t become a major success.
The show follows private detectives Cassie Dewell (Bunbury) and Cody Hoyt (Phillippe) who join forces with the latter's estranged wife and former cop, Jenny Hoyt (Katheryn Winnick), on the search for two kidnapped sisters. Taken on a highway in Montana, they discover that something much bigger than they had imagined was taking place; and the race against the clock begins before another woman is taken.
Love, Victor (Season 1) - Disney+ - Starts February 23rd 2021
Already renewed for a second season, Love, Victor is an American teen drama inspired and set in the same world as 2018 film release, Love, Simon. Having premiered in June 2020 on Hulu in the States, us Brits will finally get to relish in the joy and beauty of the story, when it makes its debut on Disney+ this February.
Michael Cimino takes the titular role as teenager Victor, who's from a half Peurto Rican, half Colombian-American family living in Atlanta. As a new student at Creekwood High School, Victor embarks on a journey of self-discovery, struggling with his sexual identity and facing more challenges at home.
Pennyworth (Season 2) - StarzPlay - Starts February 28th 2021
If you've got a DC-shaped void in your life right now, the second season of Pennyworth kicks off at the end of February, taking place a year after the explosive events of the show's debut season. Bringing an origin story for the titular, future butler of Bruce Wayne, the series has been a great expansion on the world of DC and its characters.
With England's unrest reaching boiling point due to the neo-fascist Raven Union making strides to take control, we pick back up with Alfred Pennyworth (Jack Bannon), who's now running a Soho club; albeit on the black-market.
