We're already on to our second month of the year and that means another truckload of new content is heading your way. As always, more shows and movies are coming across Netflix, Foxtel and Disney+ in February 2020 to take up even more of your precious free time. Here's all of them bundled up into one giant post.
Stan February highlights
Stan's got a number of returning shows this month with Better Call Saul's fifth season and Jim Carrey's Kidding coming back for season two. If you're a fan of Wu Tang Clan, you'll be happy to hear a new biographical series is coming as well as a docuseries.
Better Call Saul: Season 5 (24 February)
In season five of Better Call Saul, Jimmy McGill’s decision to practice law as “Saul Goodman” creates unexpected and profound waves of change for those in his orbit. Starring three-time Golden Globe nominee Bob Odenkirk, with Dean Norris returning as DEA Agent Hank Schrader, this explosive prequel series is a darkly comic crime drama that follows the story of small-time lawyer James "Jimmy" McGill (Odenkirk) and a series of extraordinary, and often tragic, events that break his spirit and lead him to create his dodgy lowlife scam artist alter-ego.
Kidding: Season 2 (9 February)
Jim Carrey returns as Jeff, aka Mr. Pickles, an icon of children’s television and a beacon of kindness and wisdom to America’s impressionable young minds, anchoring a multimillion-dollar branding empire. But when Jeff’s family begins to implode, he finds no fairy tale or fable or puppet will guide him through the crisis, which advances faster than his means to cope. The result: a kind man in a cruel world faces a slow leak of sanity as hilarious as it is heartbreaking.
Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist (17 February)
Jane Levy (Castle Rock) stars in this musical dramedy as Zoey Clarke, a whip-smart computer coder, who after an unusual event suddenly starts to hear the innermost wants, thoughts and desires of the people around her through popular songs. At first, she questions her own sanity, but after getting some guidance from her musically adept neighbour and making a breakthrough with her ailing father, Zoey soon realises this unwanted curse may just be an incredibly wonderful gift. Featuring a stellar cast, including Skylar Astin (Pitch Perfect), Alex Newell (Glee), Mary Steenburgen (Step Brothers) and Peter Gallagher (The O.C.), alongsIde special guest star Lauren Graham (Gilmore Girls), this extraordinary series is sure to capture your heart and have you singing loud and proud.
Wu-Tang: An American Saga (14 February)
Wu-Tang: An American Saga is inspired by “The Wu-Tang Manual” and “Tao of Wu”, and based on the true story of the Wu-Tang Clan. Set in early ’90s New York, at the height of the crack cocaine epidemic, the show tracks the Clan’s formation, a vision of Bobby Diggs aka The RZA, who strives to unite a dozen young, black men that are torn between music and crime but eventually rise to become the unlikeliest of American success stories.
Wu-Tang Clan: Of Mics And Men (14 February)
This limited docuseries looks back on the career of the Wu-Tang Clan, combining intimate and reflective interviews from each of the nine living members with never-before-seen archival footage and performances. Their ingenuity and entrepreneurial spirit brought them together to overcome the poverty, violence and oppression of their New York neighbourhoods. But it was music and their shared lyrical genius that allowed them to form the most recognised musical movement in the world, all while walking the tightrope that links business with brotherhood.
Wrong Man (10 February)
This groundbreaking, six-episode documentary series from Oscar®-nominated and Emmy Award®–winning filmmaker Joe Berlinger (Paradise Lost, Conversations With a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes) examines the cases of three different inmates who are serving life sentences on murder convictions but who claim innocence. The first season of Wrong Man had a tangible impact on all three cases that were examined. In the second season, the series will continue to uncover new theories and reveal startling new evidence that could prove that three new inmates are, in fact, not guilty.

The world can be a scary place but that's why escapism was no doubt born. No genre of television really does it better, for me anyway, than dumb competition shows. If you're looking for something to watch this long weekend, look no further than the best, dumbest competition shows available on the net. You're very welcome.
