It’s not February’s fault that it’s the shortest month. From a TV perspective, those two fewer days aren’t the only thing working against it. The death throes of Oscar season are a monster devouring everything in its path, one that’ll have life for another six grueling weeks. And then, its fellow awards behemoth prepares to tear through March when the Emmy march begins anew.

So February is the closest thing that the TV world gets to a breather. (Also worth noting: sports are still toying with the network schedule, too.) Even then, the new show spigot isn’t completely closed. There are fewer heavy hitters and sure things this month than usual, but there’s still a solid block of brand new shows hitting streaming services and airwaves over the coming weeks.

A lot of these shows are drafting off of well-worn subgenres, but this isn’t the adaptation-drenched collection that these monthly roundups usually are. Sure, there are some book adaptations and some spinoffs, but the most colorful, eye-catching offerings of February might just get as close to original as TV allows these days.

As usual, these roundups (like the one we did last year for the then-upcoming January shows) traverse network and cable and streaming and all those confusing areas in the middle. If somehow, none of these pique your interest, there’s also our broader list of Anticipated 2023 TV. For now, here’s February.
