And so we’ve arrived at another February, where the TV world seemingly has no plans to let up on releasing new series.

Yes, as with many of these roundups in recent months, the newest titles to stateside networks and streaming services are overseas imports. Originally premiering in Europe and the result of global productions, some of the newest shows this month come from the international partnerships that have become more and more prominent of late.

These aren’t confined to one specific corner of TV, with gigantic streaming libraries and premium cable providers latching onto these new-to-America offerings. Elsewhere, broadcast networks are slowly ramping up their output, even in the absence of any semblance of a traditional TV season.

The result is a February collection of new TV programming that has roots in superhero stories, period dramas, music documentaries, sitcom reboots, and animated classics. As usual, there’s a little bit of something for everyone. Below, we’ve tried to gather the release dates and basic info for a few handfuls of these new shows vying for your early 2021 viewing attention.
