Netflix is welcoming the New Year with new seasons of some of its most popular original series.
After Life is returning to the streaming service for its third and final season on January 14th. In the last six episodes of the British comedy-drama series, Tony Johnson (Ricky Gervais) is no longer quite so aggressively grouchy about life, but he continues to struggle to fill the void left behind by his late wife (Kerry Godliman).
Dating gameshow Too Hot to Handle is also set to make a comeback on Netflix next month. Arriving on the streamer on January 19th, the third season of the reality competition series features a new batch of gorgeous singles who will have to give up sex to win the $100,000 grand prize.
The first half of the highly anticipated fourth and last season of Ozark will also be available to stream on Netflix starting January 21st. The 14-episode final season of the crime drama series will see husband and wife Marty (Jason Bateman) and Wendy Byrde (Laura Linney) directly reporting to the cartel’s head honcho following the bloody death of Atty. Helen Pierce (Janet McTeer).
Aside from the return of fan-favorite original shows, the first month of 2022 also marks the debut of several new Netflix original series. First on the calendar is the premiere of Hype House. Set to be released on January 7th, the reality TV series follows some of the world’s biggest social media stars as they open up to the world and show a side of themselves and their relationships that the public seldom sees.
A week after that on January 14th, Netflix users will be able to stream Archive 81, a mystery thriller that centers on an archivist who is hired to restore a collection of tapes and eventually finds himself reconstructing the work of a filmmaker and her investigation into a dangerous cult.
The solo Netflix show of Queer Eye star Jonathan Van Ness is scheduled to premiere on January 28th. Titled Getting Curious with Jonathan Van Ness, the podcast-inspired series is described as an unabashedly smart and quirky exploration into topics and questions that make Jonathan curious. From skyscrapers to bugs, or from gender identity to snacks, each episode follows Jonathan as he meets with experts in various fields to uncover complexities in a wide range of subjects.
Also dropping on January 28th on Netflix is the dark comedy thriller The Woman in the House across the Street from the Girl in the Window, starring Kristen Bell. Created by Rachel Ramras, Hugh Davidson, and Larry Dorf, the series revolves around Anna (Kristen Bell), a heartbroken artist for whom every day is the same. She sits with her wine, staring out the window, watching life go by without her. But when a handsome neighbor (Tom Riley) moves in across the street, Anna starts to see a light at the end of the tunnel. That is until she witnesses a gruesome murder… Or did she?
A number of new Netflix original series coming out in January are made overseas. These include the Mexican teen drama Rebelde (January 5th), Japanese thriller The Journalist (January 13th), and the South Korean horror series All of Us Are Dead.
On the movie front, Netflix is adding a bunch of new original films to its library next month. This includes the suspense flick Brazen. Debuting on January 13th, the movie stars Alyssa Milano as mystery writer Grace Miller, who will use every bit of her expertise in genre writing to help solve her sister’s murder.
Netflix also has something that will delight fans of the spy genre. Coming out on January 21st, Munich – The Edge of War is set in Autumn 1938 and centers on a British civil servant and a German diplomat who cross paths in Munich and conspire to prevent war in Europe. The Christian Schwochow-directed movie is based on Robert Harris’ novel of the same name.
