Here’s What’s New to Netflix in January

Netflix has unveiled its list of films and TV series that will be added to its library in January. As has become the case, it’s not nearly as extensive or exciting as what’s leaving Netflix, and many of these titles were on Netflix just a few months ago before taking a month or two off. Regardless, there’s never a bad time to rewatch E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial or Boogie Nights, or even give Ocean’s Twelve another shot—which is leagues better when you read the entire film as a metaphor for the experience of making a sequel to Ocean’s Eleven.

Netflix is also adding to its library a bevy of Superman movies save for the Richard Donner original, but I would certainly suggest giving Superman Returns another shot. And as part of the streaming service’s new deal with Disney to nab the Mouse House’s films not long after release, the big-budget sequel Alice Through the Looking Glass will be available to stream in the middle of the month.

With regards to Netflix originals, the biggest January release is A Series of Unfortunate Events, which stars Neil Patrick Harris. But January also sees the release of the second season of Voltron: Legendary Defender as well as an original comedy special from Jim Gaffigan.

Take a look at the full list below.
