As we come into a new month, I’ve picked out some of the best series coming to Disney+ in the United States in February 2021. The biggest new release of the month is Marvel’s WandaVision, which will see new episodes dropping on Fridays throughout the month.
Note – This list is based on the United States release schedule and availability in other countries may vary.
Marvel Studios presents “WandaVision,” a blend of classic television and the Marvel Cinematic Universe in which Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany) – two super-powered beings living idealized suburban lives – begin to suspect that everything is not as it seems. The new series is directed by Matt Shakman; Jac Schaeffer is head writer.
New episodes will be arriving on Disney+ every Friday throughout February.
Marvel’s Behind the Mask
Marvel’s Behind the Mask will explore the power of identity behind the world’s most iconic Super Heroes we know and love today.
From the very inception of comic books, secret identities have been an integral part of both Super Heroes and Villains leading “normal” lives. But it’s the characters beneath that resonate within us across generations of fans. Since the advent of the Marvel Age of Comics in the early 1960s, Marvel’s writers and artists have used the notion of identities to examine the evolving concept of equal rights. These legendary Marvel creations and stories have not only reflected the world outside our window – they have become a reflection of our own identities and who we truly are.
Marvel’s Behind the Mask will feature guests from across Marvel’s 80-year legacy, including the writers and artists behind the rise of characters like Black Panther, Miles Morales, Ms. Marvel, Luke Cage, the X-Men, Captain Marvel, and many other characters in the Marvel Universe, highlighting Marvel’s impact on pop culture and media.
This Disney+ Original series will be coming on Friday 12th February.
The Muppet Show (Seasons 1 – 5)

Along the way, Griffin befriends Harper, a bright-eyed, mystery-obsessed classmate. Together, they uncover a secret portal that allows them to travel back in time.
