Streaming Catch-Up: Coming Soon

The second and final season of Prime Video’s Carnival Row will premiere on February 17.

Set in a fantasy world where humans and creatures clash, S2  picks up with former inspector Rycroft Philostrate aka Philo (Orlando Bloom) investigating a series of gruesome murders.

Here’s what to expect:

Vignette Stonemoss (Cara Delevingne) and the Black Raven plot payback for the unjust oppression inflicted by The Burgue’s human leaders, Jonah Breakspear (Arty Froushan) and Sophie Longerbane (Caroline Ford). Tourmaline Larou (Karla Crome) inherits supernatural powers that threaten her fate and the future of The Row. And, after escaping The Burgue and her vengeful brother Ezra (Andrew Gower), Imogen Spurnrose (Tamzin Merchant) and her partner Agreus Astrayon (David Gyasi) encounter a radical new society which upends their plans. With humans and fae folk divided and freedom on the line, each hero will face impossible dilemmas and soul-defining tests in the epic conclusion of Carnival Row.

S1 first streamed in 2019. Here’s a backgrounder on the show’s long and winding road to a conclusion.

Apple TV+ will premiere the Julianne Moore movie Sharper the same day.

About a con artist who hustles Manhattan’s elite, it was directed by Benjamin Caron (Andor) and co-stars John Lithgow, Sebastian Stan, Justice Smith, Brianna Middleton and Darren Goldstein

According to the oblique blurb, “Sharper unfolds within the secrets of New York City, from the penthouses of Fifth Avenue to the shadowy corners of Queens. Motivations are suspect and expectations are turned upside down when nothing is as it seems.”

Prime Video will premiere Somebody I Used to Know on February 10.

The fourth collaboration between director Dave Franco and co-writer Alison Brie (The RentalThe Disaster ArtistThe Little Hours), it stars Brie, Jay Ellis (Top Gun: Maverick), Kiersey Clemons (Dope), Haley Joel Osment (The Sixth Sense), Danny Pudi (Community) and Julie Hagerty (Airplane!).

Brie plays a workaholic TV producer who returns to her home town after a major professional setback and starts to question everything about the person she’s become.

Cliff Curtis plays the mentor and Anna Paquin the mother of the youngest person to sail solo, non-stop and unassisted around the world in True Spirit, which Netflix will launch on February 3. Reads the blurb:

When the tenacious young sailor Jessica Watson (Teagan Croft) sets out to be the youngest person to sail solo, non-stop and unassisted around the world, many expect her to fail. With the support of her sailing coach and mentor Ben Bryant (Cliff Curtis) and her parents (Josh Lawson and Academy Award winner Anna Paquin), Jessica is determined to accomplish what was thought to be impossible, navigating some of the world’s most challenging stretches of ocean over the course of 210 days.

Netflix will premiere the eight-part series Wellmaina on March 29.

It stars as Celeste Barber as a dynamic food writer who is forced to rethink her ‘live fast die young’ attitude after a major health crisis and tries everything from the benign to the bizarre to get well quick and reclaim her old life.

    I wonder if Three will have the new DCU shows and movies or will they go on the new streaming service. What do you think Philip? It’s going to be quite exciting to see what ends up being announced for the next 10 years 😁

  2. I have asked WBD about this Trevor but so far they’ve not been forthcoming. The DCU rights are a mess in NZ. For example, Titans streams on Netflix but no one seems to have Doom Patrol. I imagine, though, they will all end up on ThreeNow or a WBD FAST channel sooner rather than later.

  3. I’m thinking the same Philip. It sounds like the Warner Bros deal with Sky ends this year so it will be interesting to see what happens 🤔

  4. As a fan of the game, I will admit that I was worried about what HBO would do, but the first episode of The Last of Us was quite brilliant. Even though the virtue signalling was unnecessary, the acting was top notch and the expansions to story actually worked.
