Welcome to your extremely early look at what’s scheduled to hit Netflix in January 2021. This will be the list of Netflix Originals and non-Netflix Original titles scheduled for release in the United States throughout the first month of the year.
Can we expect a big month of additions given the number of removals currently planned? It’s unclear. Last year saw a bumper first of the month with lots of licensed movies but notably a lot from Warner Media.
We’ll be keeping this post-up-to-date as and when we learn about new titles scheduled for January. If you want to look even further ahead, take a look at our preview of the Netflix Originals scheduled for February.
As a reminder, we should get the full list of January 2021 release from Netflix themselves a little later in December.
