New on Netflix – January 2022

If your new year’s resolution was to spend less time in front of the TV, Netflix has answered your prayers…by unloading not a whole lot for January 2022. Traditionally a weak point on the entertainment calendar, the big wigs at Netflix HQ have decided to hold off on any sort of blockbuster listing. Instead, what’s New on Netflix is a proverbial buffet of confusing European murder mysteries. But there is one major saving grace and it comes in a neat little season four, part one sized box.

Best New Series on Netflix in January 2022

Ozark: Season 4 Part 1

As mentioned, Netflix really threw all of its eggs into the Ozark basket, and we’re not complaining. Part one of the fourth and final season of Jason Bateman’s incredible blue-toned drama lands on January 21, shining a light on the Byrdes’ future. But while freedom from the cartel is seemingly within reach, family troubles threaten to derail their plans.

Release date: January 21

After Life: Season 3

Ricky Gervais is a funny dude, but After Life has managed to do something none of his others have – Make us feel. Heartfelt, honest and bleakly brilliant, season three of the hit UK series sees Tony on the up. No longer quite so aggressively grouchy about life, he carries on, despite still continuing to struggle to fill the void left behind by his late wife.

Release date: January 14

The Sinner: Season 4: Percy

After watching the first season intently, we sort of dropped off The Sinner, which is apparently already in its fourth instalment. While we know absolutely nothing about the new season storyline, the lack of alternative options means we’ll probably be giving this one a spin.

Release date: January 26

Snowpiercer: Season 3

It’s always a good time when Snowpiercer returns. This time around, we find big dog Layton continuing to search the globe for livable conditions while Wilford — fueled by fury and revenge — remains in hot pursuit. Saucy.

Release date: January 25

Too Hot to Handle: Season 3

Super hotties with bodies forbidden from touching each other – it’s like Bible Camp all over again, only this time, there is more than just youthful innocence on the line. Season three of the worst show we’ve admittedly binged watched is a carbon copy of the first two, whihc sees influencers forced to abstain from sex in order to win $100,000.

Release date: January 19

Best New Movies on Netflix in January 2022

The Royal Treatment

The Prince Charming story gets an unnecessary reboot just in time for Valentine’s Day. When New York hairdresser Izzy seizes the chance to work at the wedding of a charming prince, sparks fly but will love or duty prevail?

Release date: January 20

Munich – The Edge of War

Ok, enough sh*tting on the rom-coms, Netflix has gone serious with this one and it looks great. Based on Robert Harris’ book, Munich – The Edge of War tells the story of a British civil servant and a German diplomat who cross paths in Munich and conspire to prevent war in Europe in Autumn 1938. Littered with nods to the past, this is a must-watch for history-buffs who don’t mind a bit of fiction heroism.

Release date: January 21

Home Team

A great man once said, you don’t know anything until you’ve experienced ‘the triumphs and defeats, the epic highs and lows of high school football’. That man was Archie from Riverdale and he has nothing to do with this film, however, it seemed moderately applicable given the content. Based on a true story, Home Town sees suspended NFL coach Sean Payton finds redemption — and reconnection — coaching his son’s youth football team in small-town Texas.

Release date: January 28

Chosen

A foreign language film that really shows Netflix’s versatility, Chosen follows a teenager who has her world turned upside down when she discovers the disturbing truth lurking in her sleepy Danish town. From the creators of The Rain.

Release date: January 13
