Amazon is stepping up its plans for the new year with a double-whammy of high-profile original series: the debut of Jack Reacher’s small screen outing and the return of Mrs Maisel. They’re joined by a rom-com in time for Valentine’s Day and the whole of The Fast and the Furious franchise.
Here’s what’s coming soon to Amazon Prime Video UK in February 2022:
The Fast and the Furious – 1st February
The cars, the family, the movies. Go back to the beginning of the franchise with the whole lot racing on to Amazon Prime Video.
Reacher: Season 1 – 4th February
Based on the novel Killing Floor by Lee Child, the series stars Alan Ritchson as Jack Reacher, a veteran military police investigator who has just recently entered civilian life. Reacher is a drifter, carrying no phone and the barest of essentials as he travels the country and explores the nation he once served. When Reacher arrives in the small town of Margrave, Georgia, he finds a community grappling with its first homicide in 20 years. The cops immediately arrest him and eyewitnesses claim to place Reacher at the scene of the crime. While he works to prove his innocence, a deep-seated conspiracy begins to emerge, one that will require Reacher’s keen mind and hard-hitting fists to deal with. One thing above all is for sure: they picked the wrong guy to take the fall. Episodes arrive weekly.

I Want You Back – 11th February
Peter (Charlie Day) and Emma (Jenny Slate) are total strangers, but when they meet, one thing instantly bonds them: they were both unexpectedly dumped by their respective partners on the same weekend.
