Pinch. Punch. First of the month. Welcome along to your roundup of what’s now streaming on Netflix in the United States for February 1st, 2023. Today, we saw 29 new movies added to the service and 6 new TV series. We’ll also check what’s trending in Netflix’s top 10s.
Today’s new arrivals kicks off what is due to be a busy month of new additions to Netflix.
Best New Movies and Series on Netflix for February 1st, 2023
The Lord of the Rings Trilogy
Best movie trilogy of all time? The chances are The Lord of the Rings is top of that list, and today, Netflix nabbed all three movies.
Based on the J.R.R. Tolkien novels, these three movies masterfully adapts the tale of Frodo Baggins taking the ring of power to Mount Doom to defeat Sauron.
As we predicted a little earlier in the week, the three movies now streaming on Netflix sadly are not the beloved extended versions of the Peter Jackson trilogy.
New Amsterdam (Seasons 3-4)
A regular feature in the Netflix top 10s over the past few weeks has been New Amsterdam, the medical drama from NBC. Following the release of the first two seasons on Netflix on January 1st, we’ve now been treated to the third and fourth seasons of the show.
For those unfamiliar, New Amsterdam follows a new medical director who breaks the rules to heal the system at America’s oldest public hospital.
