A new year means a fresh start for your favorite streaming service. Netflix is scheduled to have a ton of content head to the service throughout the month of January and many of it is highly requested and hotly anticipated content too. Along with the Netflix Originals heading in January there’s plenty of movies too which is drastically needed after 2015 has been a purge for many of the good movies that have been integral to Netflix’s library. As always, we’ll sum out the TV series and Movies in our highlights and then go through the entire list.


TV Series


Big updates for your favorite comedies are what’s dominating the main lineup this month. The long awaited Parks and Recreation, which was realistically supposed to be added in October finally has a release date. The final season of Parks and Rec gives us closure on our favorite government employee from Pawnee. It’s one of NBC’s greatest comedies in recent memory and will continue its legacy by streaming in full on Netflix. Also getting an update this month is Always Sunny in Philadelphia which is getting it’s tenth season added to the service midway through the month.

Finally in the comedy department, season 4 of the the excellent Fox series, New Girl will be marking its arrival on the same day as Always Sunny on January 5th.

January 2016 will mark the month for an update for the Universal catalogue of movies that are streaming on the service. The bulk of the new movies will arrive on the first from the provider which extends to Dreamworks Animation content too. First up is the car racing movie series that seems to have plenty of fuel left in the engine. 2 Fast 2 Furious is the second movie in the long spanning movie series and stars Paul Walker, Tyrese Gibson and Eva Mendes.

If you’re a Meet the Fockers fan or alternatively Meet the Parents then you’re in luck, as both will be coming to Netflix on the first of the month.
