New on Netflix: All the Movies and TV Coming in January

2020 is right around the corner, and what better way to kick off the new year than by avoiding real life in favor of some quality screen-staring time? (Unsure if we’re joking? Same!) Netflix is adding its usual cornucopia of new programming in January, though it’s also saying goodbye to quite a bit—we break it all down below.

In the feature film department, Netflix’s slate is riddled with worthwhile titles, but we’ll begin by calling your attention to The Master (Jan. 14, 2020), Paul Thomas Anderson’s Oscar-nominated 2012 drama starring Joaquin Phoenix as Freddie Quell, a disturbed WWII veteran and drifter who crosses paths with a mysterious movement called The Cause, led by Lancaster Dodd (the late, great Phillip Seymour Hoffman), aka The Master, and his wife Peggy (Amy Adams). Anderson, as you may know, has never made a bad movie, and on the strength of its mesmerizing performances alone, The Master may quietly be one of his best. Quite a few noteworthy films are incoming on New Year’s Day, as well, including Fernando Meirelles’ Rio de Janeiro-set 2002 epic City of God, Christopher Nolan’s mind-bending Inception, Uma Thurman-starring martial arts revenge saga Kill Bill, J.R.R. Tolkien-based blockbusters The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers and The Return of the King, Guillermo del Toro’s disturbing adult fairy tale Pan’s Labyrinth, Leonardo DiCaprio/Tom Hanks-starring con man epic Catch Me If You Can, iconic school-skipping comedy Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and much more. Following later in January are the Ni No Kuni movie (Jan. 16, 2020), Aaron Sorkin-scripted and Danny Boyle-directed Apple founder biopic Steve Jobs (Jan. 16, 2020), Tyler Perry’s new Netflix original thriller A Fall from Grace (Jan. 17, 2020), Sofia Coppola’s A24 crime-drama The Bling Ring (Jan. 18. 2020) and Helen Mirren-starring historical drama The Queen (Jan. 23, 2020), among others.

On the television and comedy end of the equation, Netflix’s additions are led by the end of one of the streamer’s most long-running and acclaimed original series: BoJack Horseman (Jan. 31, 2020), Season 6B of which debuts at the bitter end of the month. The animated adult dramedy, which has long topped our ranking of Netflix’s best original shows, will complete its two-part conclusion with eight last episodes, putting a sure-to-be-bittersweet bow on its titular washed-up sitcom star’s (Will Arnett) journey from a self-pitying, substance-abusing has-been to a more well-adjusted, and mentally and physically healthier anthropomorphized horse. Elsewhere in TV, we can anticipate the premiere of Netflix’s Michelle Monaghan-starring original thriller series Messiah (Jan. 1, 2020), Janelle Monáe-narrated limited docuseries Sex, Explained (Jan. 2, 2020), the third and final season of Moira Walley-Beckett’s Anne of Green Gables adaptation Anne with an E (Jan. 3, 2020), the Childrens Hospital team’s new medical/cop drama parody Medical Police (Jan. 10, 2020), 2018 TV documentary Betty White: First Lady of Television (Jan. 12, 2020), the penultimate sixth season of Netflix’s longest-running original series Grace and Frankie (Jan. 15, 2020), Season 2 of fan-favorite coming-of-age comedy Sex Education (Jan. 17, 2020), Fortune Feimster’s debut Netflix comedy special Sweet & Salty (Jan. 21, 2020), Part 3 of Riverdale-adjacent Sabrina the Teenage Witch adaptation Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (Jan. 24, 2020), the final season of bafflingly popular Netflix original comedy The Ranch (Jan. 24, 2020), Vir Das’ historical comedy special For India (Jan. 26, 2020) and Mexican comic Alex Fernández’s boldly titled new special El mejor comediante del mundo (Jan. 28, 2020).

Take note of what’s leaving Netflix when the new year rolls around, as well: Countless viewers will surely be devastated to learn that all 10 seasons of Friends vanish from the service on Dec. 31, after which it will stream exclusively on HBO Max. Other departing titles include The Fighter (Jan. 12, 2020), Short Term 12 (Jan. 17, 2020), American Psycho (Jan. 31, 2020), Grease (Jan. 31, 2020), Zombieland (Jan. 31, 2020) and so on.
