New on Netflix: January 2021 Releases

Here's what's new on Netflix in January 2021! We've got a complete list of what's leaving, too.

The first month of a new year is a good time to make a new impression. And that’s just what Netflix seems set on doing with its list of new releases for January 2021.

The streamer is coming out strong with a third season of Cobra Kai, formerly of YouTube Premium. The next installment in Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence’s story is set to arrive…eventually. Netflix has not unveiled a released date yet but it will be during this month. While Cobra Kai is the highlight among Netflix’ original series, it’s not the only one by a long shot. Last year’s fun Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous returns for a second season on Jan. 22 and it will be accompanied by Fate: The Winx Saga. Also, if you’re a fan of things that will one day be .gif’ed to death, the Nicolas Cage-hosted History of Swear Words drops on Jan. 5.

Netflix is bringing a lot of original movies to the table this month as well, which should help make the wait for the vaccine and movie theaters more bearable. Charming, starring Wilmer Valderama, Demi Lovato, and Sia premiers on Jan. 8. The White Tiger, which is based on an excellent novel of the same name, arrives on Jan. 22. Netflix caps off the month with The Dig on Jan. 29. That has a high-caliber starring cast including Carey Mulligan, Ralph Fiennes, and Lily James.

If the theme of 2021 is a “return to normalcy,” this batch of Netflix new releases should have us well on the way.
