Best TV Series Coming to Prime Video in February 2023 Movie
Prime Video has many different kinds of shows to offer in February 2023, and here are the best coming soon.
After a strong start in January, original series on Prime Video will be exploring all kinds of genres in February 2023, including Black comedy, steampunk fantasy, Mexican western, workplace thriller, and more, meaning we have a lot to look forward to from Amazon's television department to next month.
Old shows are returning on Prime for the first half of the month of February, with a second season of hilarity in Harlem on the third, a second season in Great Britain with on Clarkson's Farm on the tenth, and the second season of mythical crime in Carnival Row on the seventeenth. New shows will then take the Prime spotlight in the latter half of February, as La Cabeza de Joaquín Murrieta premieres also on the seventeenth and The Consultant premieres on the twenty-fourth. Here's everything we know about these series coming to Prime Video in February 2023.
The hit Prime Video series Harlem returns in Season 2 for eight episodes on February 3 and will pick up where our favorite women left off. In the trailer, we see Camille (Meagan Good) trying to put her blown-up career and disrupted love life back together, as Tye (Jerrie Johnson) is figuring out her future while Quinn (Brace Byers) confronts her feelings, and Angie (Shoniqua Shandai) is getting ahead in her musical theater career; all while they try to get together to just have some fun.
The second season of Clarkson's Farm, a docuseries following Jeremy Clarkson as he tries to figure out how to run a thousand-acre farm in Great Britain, premieres on February 10. This could be one of the last seasons of the series on Amazon after some controversy. On the Diddly Squat Farm, Clarkson learns how to manage a farm and expand with his limited agricultural knowledge and no-nonsense team in this love letter to farming.
Carnival Row returns on February 17 for a second and final season on Prime Video, and fans have been waiting years for this. After steampunk human empires have taken over the realms of the faeries, a divide separates the two kinds as intolerance and hatred for magical creatures increases. Despite the divide and discrimination, the human constable Rycroft "Philo" Philostrate (Orlando Bloom) and determined faerie Vignette Stonemoss (Cara Delevinge) spark a romance during the mysterious murders that are shaking the delicate peace existing between races. Tensions are rising and blood is spilling on both sides of the divide and war will come soon in the epic conclusion of Carnival Row.
La Cabeza de Joaquín Murrieta, or The Head of Joaquin Murrieta, also premieres on Prime Video on February 17 and looks to be an action-packed Mexican-style western. Filmed in Mexico, spoken in Spanish, and produced by Dynamo, the same individual that did Narcos, the eight-part series follows two men after the Mexican-American War. Joaquin Murrieta (Juan Manuel Bernal) is a legendary outlaw, like a Mexican Robin Hood, who crosses paths with Joaquin Carrillo (Alejandro Speitzer), an old rival he must ally with to defeat a common enemy, Harry Love (Steve Wilcox). A story of heroes and anti-heroes in Mexico during current issues of law and immigration, built for Latin Americans and all audiences, La Cabeza de Joaquín Murrieta is a traditional experiment and a sure-fire hit.
Prime Video possibly saved the best for last, as The Consultant premieres on February 24. From WandaVision director Matt Shakman, the trailer gives us plenty of reason to expect much from this show. If you thought your boss was crazy, Regus Patoff (Christoph Waltz) is a literal sociopath in this twisted workplace comedy-thriller. Hired as a consultant to improve business at a gaming software company after a failed merger, Patoff believes that any motivation to improve employees' work ethic, including fear, is acceptable. An interesting take on what the relationship between employee and boss is, The Consultant will see just how far we are willing to go to get ahead and to survive. In these eight episodes based on Bentley Little's novel of the same name, we see kidnappings, conspiracies, and very dark humor. Yes, we are very excited about The Consultant.
If you haven’t yet had a chance to check out the Prime Video series Modern Love, you need to add it to your watch list. Modern Love is a romantic-comedy television series based on The New York Times weekly newspaper column of the same name. According to Deadline, the series (much like the column) explores "love in its multitude of forms – including sexual, romantic, familial, platonic, and self-love." The series is interesting as it does not follow the same cast throughout the entirety of each season, but rather follows a new cast and new stories in each subsequent episode. Each half-hour episode is centered around a different depiction of love and delves into a different relationship dynamic.
Modern Love features a broad range of love stories, all set within The Big Apple, thus earning its title. The stories it shares are as varied as the emotional responses they induce. Heartwarming, devastating, hopeful, romantic, charming, and honest could all accurately describe the Prime Video series. It is without a doubt the streaming platform’s most underrated series in its catalog. Furthermore, it also boasts an all-star cast including the likes of Tina Fey, Anne Hathaway, Kit Harrington, Anna Paquin, John Slattery, and many others. Here is why Modern Love is one of Prime Video’s most underrated series.
One great reason to tune in to Modern Love is it features a terrific ensemble cast. Throughout seasons 1 and 2, audiences are treated to a slew of talented actors bringing to life the essay submissions of real-life people. In season one alone, we see appearances from Saturday Night Live alum Tina Fey, Andy Garcia, Ozark’s Julia Garner, Anne Hathaway, Catherine Keener, Dev Patel, Ed Sheeran, and John Slattery of Mad Men fame. Season 2 also features a barrage of talented guest stars in the way of Lucy Boynton, Zoe Chao, Minnie Driver, Game of Throne’s Kit Harrington, Garret Hedlund, and True Blood’s Anna Paquin.
While all the episodes are special in their own way, and share some amazing stories, Season 1 Episode Three “Take Me As I Am, Whoever I Am” starring Hathaway as a New York woman silently struggling with Bipolar Disorder, and the complications that arise in her dating and work life as a result, is particularly noteworthy. Hathaway is brilliant in the role, and the episode sheds light on an important issue. The episode is based on the 2008 essay by Terry Cheney. Showrunner John Carney also felt particularly connected to this story telling The Hollywood Reporter, “One day I feel like I can do everything and there’s nothing I couldn’t do, and the next day I don’t get out of bed or don’t feel like getting out of bed, and I feel deflated and defeated and self-conscious and ugly and talentless and the next day I’m OK again. I’m not sure how many people feel that way in real life, but I certainly feel that way.”
