Netflix Inc. has another relatively light lineup coming in February, as it raises prices for subscribers in the U.S. and Canada.
Netflix /zigman2/quotes/202353025/composite NFLX +0.58% subscribers in the U.S. will see the cost of the basic plan rising from $8.99 to $9.99 a month, while the standard (and most popular) plan goes from $13.99 to $15.49 a month, and the premium plan will jump from $17.99 to $19.99 a month.
What will that get you in February? “Inventing Anna” (Feb. 11), for one. Hit-maker Shonda Rhimes is behind this ripped-from-the-headlines miniseries about Anna Delvey (played by Emmy-winner Julia Garner), a fraudster who convinced New York’s elite that she was a German heiress. There’s also “Vikings: Valhalla” (Feb. 25), a spinoff of History Channel’s popular and bloody “Vikings” series; a new season of the addictive dating series “Love Is Blind” (Feb. 11, with new eps every week); Season 2 of the critically panned sitcom “Space Force” (Feb. 18); and the improv comedy/mystery series “Murderville” (Feb. 3), starring Will Arnett and celebrity guests.
Other notable additions include a reboot of the classic horror movie “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” (Feb. 18); Part 4 of Matt Groening’s animated fantasy series “Disenchanted” (Feb. 9); “jeen-yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy” (Feb. 16), a three-part docuseries about Kanye West; and movies such as “The Book of Eli,” “Caddyshack,” “Donnie Brasco” and “The Hangover” (all Feb. 1).
UPDATE: One late addition: Ali Wong’s third Netflix standup-comedy special, “Ali Wong: Don Wong,” is coming out on Valentine’s Day (Feb. 14).
Here’s the full list of what’s coming and going, as of Feb. 2 (release dates are subject to change):
