It’s a week packed with a variety of new releases on Amazon Prime Video, offering an array of titles from an edge-of-the-seat naval series to heartwarming love stories. First up, on February 12, is the highly anticipated twenty-first season of ‘NCIS’. This long-running series has had viewers on the hook for two decades, and the latest season promises to resolve the nail-biting cliffhangers left unresolved at the end of season twenty. Fans can expect further developments in the relationships of key characters and an overarching storyline that keeps the adrenaline pumping. ‘NCIS’ has always captivated audiences with its blend of suspense and humor, focusing on a group of capable and charismatic special agents who solve crimes related to Navy and Marine Corps personnel. Combining the intensity of military drama with the intricacies of police procedural, topped off with dashes of comedy, this season is set to stay true to the show’s pedigree.

Following ‘NCIS’, on February 13, is the premiere of ‘5 Blind Dates’, an Amazon Original from Australia. This romantic comedy movie is a milestone for Australian productions in the Prime catalog. It tells the story of a determined tea shop owner whose encounter with a fortune-teller sends her on a whirlwind journey to find her soulmate. According to the prophecy, he is to be found amongst her next five dates. The premise alone sets the stage for humor, blunders, and possibly, true love.

On Valentine’s Day, February 14, Amazon offers a treasure trove of real-life love stories with the first season of ‘Love Storiyaan’. This anthology brings together six real-life couples from various parts of India. Their tales of love, hope, joy, and overcoming obstacles are presented through the lenses of six distinctive directors – Akshay Indikar, Archana Phadke, Collin D’Cunha, Hardik Mehta, Shazia Iqbal, and Vivek Soni. Each director brings a unique flavor to the unscripted series, promising to tug at heartstrings and possibly shed light on the universal aspects of love and relationships.

Subsequently, on February 16, the streaming platform introduces audiences to ‘This is me… Now: A Love Story’. Tied in with the release of Jennifer Lopez’s album of the same name, this narrative-driven odyssey is a blend of biography, mythology, and self-discovery. Directed by Dave Meyers, viewers will witness Lopez’s personal experiences in her journey towards love. Featuring a galaxy of stars such as Ben Affleck, Fat Joe, Trevor Noah, and more, this production is set to be a mythological storytelling spectacle embodied with Lopez’s personal touch and healing narrative.

On the same day, ‘Young Sheldon’ returns for its seventh and final season. As a spin-off prequel to ‘The Big Bang Theory’, it has successfully etched its own place in the hearts of viewers. Following the prodigious life of Sheldon Cooper in East Texas from 1989 and through the early 1990s, this season finds the lovable genius tackling adolescence. In this installment, while the dynamics of the Cooper family continue to evolve, Sheldon, now 14, maintains his relentless, albeit quirky, quest to navigate and correct the world around him.

Last but not least, ‘The Grand Tour’ comes racing into its fifth season on February 16. Starring the iconic quartet Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, James May, and Andy Wilman, ‘The Grand Tour’ remains a favorite among gearheads and viewers who delight in the hosts’ humor, camaraderie, and thrilling automotive adventures. Born from the legacy of their time on BBC’s ‘Top Gear’, the show has since evolved to carve its own unique path, exploring the world’s highways and byways through the windshield of some of the most exotic cars.
