What’s new on Netflix and what’s leaving in February 2019

Netflix is offering a potent prescription for the midwinter blues in the form of a cornucopia of new streaming options for subscribers to enjoy in the comfort of their homes this February. From original shows to top-notch films, Netflix has a massive number of compelling offerings lined up. Read on for all the highlights, then scroll down for a full list of what’s new on Netflix.

Several popular house-produced series return on Netflix this February, including Nailed It!, Chef’s Table, and Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj, as well as some highly anticipated, Netflix-exclusive stand-up comedy specials from Ray Romano, Ken Jeong, and Kevin Hart, among others. The streaming service also delivers the dark thriller Velvet Buzzsaw, along with Steven Soderbergh’s sports drama High Flying Bird.

The streaming giant will also add a long list of entertaining films not produced in-house, including the first four installments of the Jaws franchise, and 2016’s critically acclaimed coming-of-age drama The Edge of Seventeen. A second collection of Jeopardy! quiz show episodes also debuts at the end of the month.

Our top picks for February

‘Velvet Buzzsaw’

Described as a “satirical thriller set in the contemporary art world scene of Los Angeles,” this film reunites Nightcrawler writer and director Dan Gilroy with star Jake Gyllenhaal, who portrays an art critic whose life takes a dark — possibly supernatural — turn when he encounters a series of paintings created by an unknown artist. The first trailer for the film generated plenty of buzz with its mind-bending horror elements and impressive cast, which also includes Rene Russo, Toni Collette, and John Malkovich. The film is getting a limited theatrical release to correspond with its Netflix premiere.

‘High Flying Bird’

The latest film from Oscar-winning director Steven Soderbergh, this drama follows a sports agent played by André Holland who’s attempting to navigate the difficult deliberations between the NBA and its players in the midst of a basketball lockout that has put the future of the game in question. With his career on the line, he pursues an option that could change the game forever and put power in the hands of the players instead of the team owners. The film is based on a script by Moonlight screenwriter (and Academy Award winner) Tarell Alvin McCraney. Soderbergh shot much of the film on an iPhone 7. The cast also includes Zazie Beetz, Zachary Quinto, and Kyle MacLachlan, with appearances by several current and former NBA players, including Reggie Jackson, Karl-Anthony Towns, and Donovan Mitchell.

Ken Jeong: You Complete Me, Ho

Ken Jeong is perhaps best known for his recurring role as Leslie Chow in The Hangover franchise, but the comedian, actor, and former physician is going back to his stand-up roots this month with his first comedy special for Netflix. The special will bring Jeong back to the venue that gave him his start in comedy, the Ice House Comedy Club in Pasadena, California. Crazy Rich Asians filmmaker Jon M. Chu is behind the camera as director and executive producer. In the special, Jeong reflects on the path that brought him from a career as a doctor to the world of comedy, and how his wife’s battle with cancer led to his role in The Hangover.

As usual, February is your last chance to watch a variety of shows and movies before they leave Netflix. Be sure to catch quirky comedies The Big Lebowski and Shaun of the Dead, as well as all five seasons of the acclaimed series Queer as Folk, before they disappear.

Below is the full list of everything new coming to the streamer in the month of February, and everything going away. The bolded names signify more of our favorites to help you load up your binge queue.
