It's February, and Prime Video is headed into the month with tons of exciting content, including a brand new romantic comedy just in time for Valentine's Day, a thrilling action series, and the fourth season of the Amazon's Emmy-winning "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel." The platform also has plenty of movies and TV shows, new and old alike, arriving on the platform this month.

"I Want You Back" stars "Obvious Child" actress Jenny Slate and "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia's" Charlie Day. The comedic actors play a pair of heartbroken strangers who hatch a plot to help each other get their exes back. After an extra long, pandemic-induced hiatus following the bombshell season three finale, "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" is finally back for its fourth season, and this time, Midge is ready for her main-character moment. And action fans might want to know that the streaming giant is bringing Lee Child's crime thriller novels to life in "Reacher," a new series starring Alan Ritchson.

Amazon Prime's price increases this month

It's important for Amazon Prime subscribers to know that, for the first time since 2018, the cost of a Prime subscription is going up. Starting Feb. 18, the cost of an annual Amazon Prime membership will increase from $119 to $139. Amazon Prime members who pay monthly will see fees boosted from $12.99 a month to $14.99 a month. Current members will see the higher price reflected after March 25.

If you're a monthly Amazon Prime subscriber, now is a great time to switch to an annual membership: You'll avoid a year of higher monthly fees, and save even more money on top of that.

Amazon Prime membership (1 year), $119

Here's an Amazon Prime price hack for annual subscribers. You can't renew an existing annual Amazon Prime membership early. But you can buy yourself a gift subscription to Amazon Prime for $119 and then activate it once your current membership expires. That means another 365 days at $20 less for continued access to Amazon Prime Video, Whole Foods deals, free Kindle books, Amazon Prime Music and more.

Amazon Prime gift membership (1 year), $119

Remember to disable auto-renew on your current subscription after purchase.

The best Prime Video premieres of February 2022

With fan favorites and newcomers alike, such as Rachel Brosnahan, Alex Borstein, Malcolm Goodwin, Kelly Bishop, Milo Ventimiglia, Willa Fitzgerald, Bruce McGill and Kristin Kreuk, here's what's new on Prime Video in February 2022.

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (Feb. 18)

Prime Video

The fourth installment of Prime Video's Emmy-winning series is finally back after a long hiatus. We last left Midge at a low point in her career, after being dumped from her opening-act spot on Shy Baldwin's tour. But Midge and Susie appear to already be forming -- or attempting to form -- a comeback plan. 

Meanwhile, Mrs. Maisel has some new roommates, and the familial living situation is off to a rocky start. Rachel Brosnahan, Alex Borstein, Michael Zegen, Marin Hinkle, Tony Shalhoub and more familiar faces are returning for the fourth chapter of Midge's comedic journey. 

Two new additions from creator Amy Sherman-Palladino's past are also stepping into the world of Maisel this season: "Gilmore Girls" stars Kelly Bishop and Milo Ventimiglia. In a departure from the series' usual binge-style premiere, the fourth season will be airing on Prime Video over a four-week period. The first two episodes premiere Feb. 18. 

I Want You Back (Feb. 11)

"I Want You Back" follows Emma and Peter, strangers who meet after having their hearts broken in the same weekend. The pair spark an unlikely friendship when they realize their respective partners have already moved on to new relationships, and the two hatch a plan to break them up. Charlie Day and Jenny Slate star in this lighthearted rom-com, alongside Gina Rodriguez, Scott Eastwood and Manny Jacinto. Right on time for a Valentine's Day viewing, "I Want You Back" premieres Feb. 11 on Prime Video. 

Reacher (Feb. 4)

Prime Video

Jack Reacher is arrested for murder -- but the police need his help. This Prime Video series is an adaptation of the first Jack Reacher novel, "Killing Floor," with author Lee Child as an executive producer. 

The series is set up to be a faithful adaptation of the books. When Jack Reacher arrives in Margrave, Georgia, he already seems to have a target on his back. After the town encounters its first murder case in over two decades, Reacher finds himself the prime suspect in the investigation. Now the ex-military police officer must work to prove his innocence. Alan Ritchson, Malcolm Goodwin, Willa Fitzgerald, Bruce McGill and Kristin Kreuk star in this new action series, which premiered Feb. 4.
