As the number of shows and movies available to stream in Australia continues to grow at an impressive rate, it can be tough to keep up with all the new additions to each streaming service each month.
We've all come to anticipate a new stable of Netflix Originals releases each month, but figuring out which shows they are and when exactly they become available isn't so easy. And what about the large number licensed shows and films that are made available to stream, if only for a limited time?
In an effort to keep you informed of the best shows and movies that are in the process of being added to Netflix, we'll be bringing you an updated list of what you can expect on the service on a monthly basis.
Not only that, we'll also be singling out the biggest releases, as well as a number of quality TV shows and films which we believe deserve your Netflixing time.
So get ready to kick off the new year with an epic binge – here's what's new on Netflix in February 2018.
TV shows highlights for February 2018
Altered Carbon (2/2/2018)
A futuristic cyberpunk series that imagines a world where death has been made obsolete, thanks to the ability to transfer consciousness to a new body. Now, a soldier from the past has been brought back hundreds of years after being held in digital prison to help solve the attempted murder of a wealthy man.
Seven Seconds (23/2/2018)
A new thriller series from the makers of The Killing, Seven Seconds examines the tensions between African American citizens and white cops when a young black male is run over and left to die by an off-duty police officer. How long can they bury the truth?
Everything Sucks! (16/2/2018)
Hey remember the '90s? That's basically the premise of this nostalgia-centric series which examines American high school life in 1996. Will it amount to more than nostalgia-bait? With any luck, we might have a new Freaks and Geeks on our hands…
Coach Snoop: Season 1 (2/2/2018)
Snoop Dogg stars in this excellent-looking series about the youth football league created by the entertainer to prevent kids from ending up in a life of crime.
Queer Eye: Season 1 (7/2/2018)
A brand-new Fab 5 has been enlisted to make America fabulous again … heading into the more regional parts of the country to give clueless men a sense of style and confidence.
Movies highlights for February 2018
A mute bartender (Alexander Skarsgård) with a violent past is forced to take on the teeming underworld of gangsters in a futuristic Berlin as he searches for his missing girlfriend. To do this, he'll enlist the help of two wise-cracking surgeons (Paul Rudd and Justin Theroux) who'll do the talking for him.
When We First Met (9/2/2018)
A “nice guy” (Adam Devine) misses his chance with a beautiful girl (Alexandra Daddario), only for her end up marrying some other dude (Robbie Amell) years later. Realising that he can travel back in time to the day he met her through an old photo booth they momentarily shared, the guy, who's like totally not a stalker or anything, attempts to woo her over and over again with apparently hilarious results. Pretty creepy for a comedy, but hey – it’s Daddario we’re talking about here.
John Wick: Chapter 2 (16/2/2018)
First, they killed his dog. Now, they've killed his house (while attempting to kill him). Just when he thought he was out… they pull him back in! Now, it's twice-retired hitman John Wick who's on the run, with every other assassin in town is out to take him down. Expect even more head shots than before.
Louis Bloom (Jake Gyllenhaal) enters the seedy world of late night crime journalism, which basically consists of recording bloody carnage in the streets of Los Angeles to sell to fear-mongering news outlets. But what happens when he starts orchestrating the chaos himself to get the best exclusives?
