Netflix in January 2021: New Releases, TV Shows, Movies and Netflix Originals The year 2020 has been brutal. The COVID-19 pandemic has changed everything. Schools are closed. Theaters are struggling. Small businesses and local restaurants were hit hard by lockdowns and stay-at-home orders.

But I digress. The point is, with 2020 behind us, 2021 comes with the promise of numerous vaccines to help us reach that coveted herd immunity point, or at least slow this sucker down. And one way you can help, is to keep social distancing and spend more time playing video games and watching Netflix from the safety and comfort of your own home. Hence, this list of new titles headed to Netflix in January 2021.




Clearly, the biggest and most exciting newcomer to Netflix’s catalog is the third season of Cobra Kai. In New Releases, Vanessa Kirby Oscar vehicle “Pieces of a Woman” is probably the most anticipated new arrival. The actress makes the most of this unfathomably tough melodrama about a woman coping in the months after a stillbirth. Rahmin Bahrani’s “The White Tiger”, an adaptation of Aravind Adiga’s whirlwind novel about an Indian driver scraping his way up the social ladder will almost certainly be worth a look.

The old-movie fans can look forward to classics Bonny and Clyde (1967) and Cool Hand Luke (1967).  For Mafia movie fans, Netflix is bringing back Martin Scorsese’s crime dramas Goodfellas (1990) and The Departed (2006), both of which are excellent choices and among all time fan favorites.




For lighter fare there’s Superbad (2007), the first Robert Downey Jr Sherlock Holmes (2009) and What’s Eating Gilbert Grape (1994, one of Johnny Depp’s first and finest movies with notable performance from Leonardo Di Caprio. All those films land on January 1st, but more are scattered across the month. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011) lands on the 5th. It’s definitely worth watching. And one of the most popular 90’s movies of all time—Robin Williams’ Hook (1991)—arrives on January 15th with Dustin Hoffman in an endearing role as the titular villain.
