In just a few short weeks, it’ll be the dawn of a new year, and Netflix is kicking off 2018 in style, with a slew of new movies and television shows to snuggle up under a blanket with and binge. There’s something for everyone coming in January, so let’s take a look at the best new offerings.
As usual, the first of the month (and, in this case, the first of the year) is where the bulk of the new content comes in, and there are a lot of great library titles being added this time.
January 1st will bring us Apollo 13, Batman, Batman Returns, Batman Forever, Batman & Robin, Batman Begins, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and the first five Bring It On films (yes, there are that many — a sixth one came out earlier this year).
In addition, we’ll get How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, King Kong, all four Lethal Weapon movies, Love Actually, National Treasure, Sharknado 5: Global Swarming, The Shawshank Redemption, and all three Godfather films.
If you’re one of the many parents that use Netflix as a babysitter, you’ll be happy to know there is plenty of new content for kids coming in January, as well.
The little ones can binge on Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie (January 10), Trolls: The Beat Goes On!: Season 1 (January 19), Llama Llama: Season 1 (January 26), The Adventures of Puss in Boots: Season 6 (January 26), and Disney/Pixar’s Cars 3 (January 31).
Of course, one of the big highlights of Netflix is the service’s popular original series, and there are several new shows and returning favorites coming next month.
That includes Lovesick: Season 3 (January 1), the long-awaited film Before I Wake (January 5), Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee: Season 10 (January 5), DEVILMAN crybaby: Season 1 (January 5), The Polka King (January 12), Katt Williams: Great America (January 16), Grace and Frankie: Season 4 (January 19), and One Day at a Time: Season 2 (January 26).
These announcements are always bittersweet, though, as it also means a number of titles will be leaving next month, as well. So hurry, because this is your last chance to watch Chicago, E.T., Forrest Gump, Gremlins, Law & Order: SVU: Seasons 14-17, Mean Girls, Pulp Fiction, Requiem for a Dream, Saw I-VII, Lost: Seasons 1-6, The Host, and Futurama: Seasons 7-10.
