You won’t find too many familiar titles below as most are debuts for Netflix but that’s not to say you shouldn’t have any on your radar. Altered Carbon looks to be the next big sci-fi hit for Netflix and we’ve also got an Oscar contender also scooped up for release by Netflix.
You’ll want to keep an eye out for the official preview of what’s coming to Netflix in February later on in January.
Altered Carbon (Season 1)
Release Date: February 2nd, 2018
Starring Joel Kinnaman (House of Cards) and Renée Elise Goldsberry (Hamilton) this will be Netflix’s first big Original futuristic sci-fi production in a series. Based on the novel series of the same name, this 10 episode series will see technology enable us to have our memories ‘re-sleeved’ into other bodies meaning you cannot die.
On Body and Soul (2017 Movie)

Regions: USA, Latin America, Middle East and Asian Regions
If you’re looking for an Oscar-nominated movie, Hungarian movie On Body and Soul will be up your alley. The movie was acquired by Netflix exclusively for the US and a limited amount of other regions. The movie is a love story set in Budapest that first premiered at the AFI Fest back in November.
The movie has already been nominated and won a myriad of awards including the Foreign Language entry in the Oscars which was last won by Iranian movie, The Salesman.
Marseille (Season 2)
Release Date: February 23rd
Netflix first French original series is back for its second season. The political drama hasn’t received quite the same amount of attention as Netflix’s House of Card’s buts it’s definitely worth a watch. The series follows Robert Taro who is the mayor of the French city of Marseille but not free of corruption or controversy.
Most of the cast is returning for the second season and the series hopes to gain better reviews than the first which was criticized mostly for its poor dialogue.
Seven Seconds (Season 1)
Release Date: February 23rd
Expect this series to crop up in the news a lot around its release. The series picks up on a family who has been bereaved after a white cop killed a black teenager. The incident blows up and attracts national attention. It takes a look at how the media covers such an event but also tries to tackle real social problems behind such events.
The first season is set to include breakout stars including Regina King and Clare-Hope Ashitey. The series will act as an anthology series going forward and has been created by Veena Sud. Veena is most known for her role in producing the critically acclaimed series, The Killing.
Queer Eye (Season 1)
Netflix is rebooting the reality TV show in February. The show was first seen on Bravo in 2003 and the series lasted for five seasons before having the plug pulled. The premise of the show is that the five hosts, also known as the ‘fab five’, come to the rescue of ‘hapless’ straight guys to make them fabulous.
