Don’t know what to watch this month? A Black History Month essential (HBO Max’s Judas and the Black Messiah), a Valentine’s Day romance (Amazon’s The Map of Tiny Perfect Things), and a rocking return (Peacock’s Punky Brewster) are among our top picks for the best movies, series, and documentaries to stream this February. It may be the shortest month of the year, but our essential streaming guide is proof that February’s entertainment offerings didn’t peak with the Super Bowl.

 

What to Stream on Netflix, HBO Max, AppleTV+, Hulu, and More This Month

What to Watch on Netflix: February 2021

It’s a race to the punchline on the sportsworld-set sitcom, The Crew (Feb. 15), which stars Kevin James as the crew chief in a NASCAR garage who’s driven crazy by tech-obsessed millennials brought in to modernize the team. (And you thought being a mall cop was tough.)

What to Watch on HBO Max: February 2021

Judas and the Black MessiahThe title is a historical spoiler alert in the heart-wrenching story of betrayal (Feb. 12). In 1960s Illinois, car thief William O’ Neal (LaKeith Stanfield) is enlisted by the FBI to infiltrate the Black Panther Party. His loyalties are soon torn between the Feds and revolutionary activist Fred Hampton (Daniel Kaluuya, reuniting with Get Out costar Stanfield).

What to Watch on AppleTV+: February 2021

Billie Eilish: The World’s A Little Blurry (Feb. 26) is an intimate and intense documentary chronicling the personal and professional saga of 18-year-old singer Billie Eilish as she creates and releases her debut album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? Featuring her brother and collaborator, Finneas O’Connell, and their parents, Maggie Baird and Patrick O’Connell, it’s both a behind-the-scenes look at a gifted artist on the brink of superstardom and a candid coming-of-age story about a teenager going through a turbulent time. (Is there any other kind?)

What to Watch on Hulu: February 2021

Nomadland (Feb. 19) is quite a trip. After losing her factory job and her home amidst the financial crisis, a widow (Frances McDormand) packs her belongings into a van and travels along the American West looking for work. Based on the 2017 non-fiction book Nomadland: Surviving America in the 21st Century, this devastating drama from director Chloe Zhao (The Rider, Marvel’s upcoming Eternals) casts real-life “nomads” opposite McDormand and David Strathairn. It’s a surefire Oscar contender—and an emotional experience audiences won’t soon forget.

What to Watch on Peacock: February 2021

Punky power! A rad revival of one of the many adorable orphan sitcoms of the 1980s, Punky Brewster (Feb. 25) finds a present-day Punky (Soleil Moon-Frye) dealing with life as a single mom of three when she meets Izzy (Quinn Copeland), a young girl in the foster care system who reminds her of a certain someone…her younger self. In case you’re looking for a sign this show isn’t totally stuck in the past, Punky’s BFF Cherie (Cherie Johnson) is out and in love with her girlfriend, Lauren (The Good Doctor’s Jasika Nicole). But is the show for nostalgic adults or modern kids? That’s for you to decide.

What to Watch on Disney+: February 2021

New weekly WandaVision episodes continue to give us yet another reason to stay in on Fridays. Watching the Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) go Bewitched while playing house with Vision (Paul Bettany) was cute and all, but it’s the way the show has escalated from sitcom spoof to Marvel-ous madness that’s taken the action to another level.

What to Watch on Amazon: February 2021

YA meets Groundhog Day in the sci-fi romance, The Map of Tiny Perfect Things ( Feb. 12). Mark (Kyle Allen) is relatively chill to be stuck living the same day over and over, but meeting the mysterious Margaret (Kathryn Newton) flips his world upside-down. Together, they pick out the little details to make their do-over day perfect.
