Netflix has released the list of films and TV shows that are new to the streaming service in January, and it’s a hefty and very solid list. As for library titles, standouts include all four Indiana Jones movies, Ridley Scott’s American Gangster, Guillermo del Toro’s masterful Pan’s Labyrinth, and the underrated The Mummy and The Mummy Returns. There are also a couple of notable new releases, including Solo: A Star Wars Story and Incredibles 2, in case you missed them or want to watch them again.
I’d also like to point out that The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story is a must-watch, and definitely not the show you think it is based on the marketing. Trust me, throw that one into your queue.
In terms of Netflix originals, the final seasons of Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt will be available, as will the new season of Friends from College. Moreover, the soon-to-be-cancelled The Punisher will drop Season 2 at an unspecified date—which makes me think we’re in for a surprise release at some point in January.
