The first month of 2022 is nearly over, so it's time to look ahead at what Acorn TV's February schedule has to offer. Though it's not a big month in sheer numbers, we're excited to see new episodes of Agatha Raisin and Murdoch Mysteries on the way.

If you don't already have an Acorn TV subscription, you can sign up on their website HERE. Use code IHBT30 to get an extended free trial period (30 days vs. the usual 7). 

If you have a smart TV that isn't compatible with their app (like a Samsung) – or if you just prefer to subscribe through Amazon's Prime Video service, you can sign up HERE instead. 

Both offer easy online cancellation if you decide it's not the thing for you. Both options have the same programming, though some people report that one or the other seems to give them a better streaming experience.

Candice Renoir, Season 3

Candice Renoir (Cécile Bois) is a French policewoman and single mother of four. After putting her career on hold for a decade, she's returning to work in a port town in the South of France. Now, she'll face the challenging task of solving crime while balancing the need to care for her family.

New British TV Shows on Acorn TV in February 2022

  1. The first few seasons of Murdock were fun. But now a 24 episode season 15 is too much. The show has long passed it’s see by date.

  2. Don’t like dramas or mysteries. Love Acorns nice balance of shows. Something for everyone. Love the Aussie shows.

  3. why do usa prime get all great international tv drama-and uk get rubbish -i can name over 100 tv shows usa has also same for channels like hiyaa/epix also way more slection-same with acorn uk=still waiting on s3 of baltazhar s4 done and s5 last ever-being done too-so be like 2029 b4 acorn uk gets them-i mean to watch beforerogners s1/2 and 30 coins s1-i had to search elsewhere–not a bit happy

  4. I can’t believe that so many people are so enthralled with Murdock . It’s like watching Lifetime or Hallmark in costume. Terrible acting and redundant storyline.
    Acorn used to set the standard for British mystery but Cat hospital and foreign subtitles are less than enjoyable. I have been a member fir many years but really rethinking.

    • Couldn’t agree more — as another example, “Scotch! The Story of Whisky” — seriously, and in 3 parts at that???

  5. Yay for Season 3 Candice Renoir, finally!!!! Now, what about Seasons 4-9. Why does it take so long to get them? You can find them other places, like You Tube but with no closed captioning; my high school French is not that good!

  6. Please…Line of Duty season 6 and later, if any. Also, No Offence, new season if there is one.

  7. Like many others, I’m not impressed at all. When is the Clancy mysteries coming back. I prefer more serious mysteries as well. Some of these are just too silly.

    • Acorn is seeming more and more to be a mere gateway to other subscription services such as BritBox and PBS Masterpiece. It seems as though I’m paying a monthly fee to Acorn just to see what the other streaming services are offering, then finding out that my Acorn subscription doesn’t cover them. So, now, I have to subscribe to all of them to see what they merely preview on Acorn. It’s “Bait & Switch” at it’s best. Acorn needs to include a great deal more original programming that is fully available—meaning ALL seasons of each show—and not just one or two seasons (series) for the shows of other streaming services, that just hook you, then want to charge you to see the rest of the episodes. It’s an unsavory practice.

  8. Hoping more content from Sundance Now rotates over to Acorn soon. Especially One Lane Bridge Season 2.

  9. I am disappointed at this lineup. Not enough murder mysteries with good actors. I think Acorn needs to up its game. Brit Box is looking better and better. And now Prime has a lot of BBC/PBS series, I am seriously considering quitting Acorn.

    • Totally agree. Love murder mysteries with series content. Shows like River. I have been disappointed in Acorns very limited content . Agatha Christie series are fine to folks who enjoy this sort of series but good actors with a great script is what I am seeking. I Ave been considering cancelling my subscription as the line up for each month disappointing. Love British mystery, shows!

  10. Thank you for the return of Murdoch. However, is there anyway that Father Brown and Vera would be able to return to Acorn? I know that they are currently on BritBox.

    • BritBox is owned by BBC and ITV, and they are hanging on to popular shows like Father Brown. Acorn cannot show anything without permission from the copyright owners. No one can show any program that is still under copyright unless they are kicens s by the copyright owners.

  11. Not enough mysteries and/or
    detective shows. No “legal” shows.
    Unhappy with recent programming.
    Need “Foyle’s World” type shows.

  12. I am really disappointed with Acorn with so many comedies and reality shows. Please change your program it is really boring.

    • Like many others, I’m not impressed at all. When is the Clancy mysteries coming back. I prefer more serious mysteries as well. Some of these are just too silly.

      • I agree, I signed up in the first place for their stellar detective shows. More of those, please!
