The long wait will soon be over for fans of Carnival Row, as the second and final season of the fantasy series premieres Feb. 17 on Amazon Prime. Meanwhile, HBO’s The Nevers will find a new home this month on Tubi, the free ad-supported streaming service from Fox Corp.
January appears to be a quiet month for new arrivals on streaming services, which means it might be a good time to catch up on earlier releases you’ve missed. However, there are a few highlights, including The Prestige on Hulu, Strange World on Disney+, and The Pale Blue Eye on Netflix.
When it comes to movies and TV series with steampunk appeal, 2022 was a decidedly mixed bag. The year saw some notable releases, but it was also a period of turmoil for some of the top streaming services, which have become major sources of steampunk-related entertainment.
Viewers can expect lots of holiday movies this month, but for steampunk fans, the major highlights are the Season 3 premiere of His Dark Materials on HBO Max and Guillermo del Toro’s adaptation of Pinocchio on Netflix.
Netflix is offering most of the streaming treats in November, with premieres for two original series – 1899 and Wednesday – plus the long-awaited sequel to Enola Holmes. Other highlights include Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow on Prime Video.
October is Halloween month, so it’s no surprise that you can see lots of horror films on streaming services. Some clearly fall within the “steampunk-related” category even if they’re not masterpieces: Van Helsing on Peacock, Winchester on Hulu and Prime Video, and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter on Peacock and Prime Video.
Steampunk-related content on Disney+, HBO Max, Hulu, Netflix, Prime Video, and more
Each month, The Steampunk Explorer produces a guide to steampunk-related movies and TV series that are slated to arrive on major streaming services. But most of the top streamers offer other steampunk programming beyond the new arrivals.
Highlights include Pinocchio on Disney+, Fullmetal Alchemist: The Final Alchemy on Netflix, Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow on Paramount+, and The Rings of Power on Prime Video. Plus: Rob Zombie’s The Munsters on Netflix.
The biggest releases in August might not be steampunk-related, but we’d wager that many steampunk fans are eagerly anticipating two new series: House of the Dragon on HBO Max and The Sandman on Netflix.
It’s not jam-packed with steampunk programming, but we’ve scoured the panel schedule for sessions that may be of interest. Fans of science fiction and fantasy more broadly can get early looks at some highly anticipated films and TV series.
