January 2017 New Netflix Releases

Kasey Moore What's on Netflix Avatar

We’ve got your January 2017 Netflix new releases much earlier than normal this month as Christmas eats into the end of the month. In all, Netflix will be adding a good mix of movies, Netflix Originals and updates to some much-loved TV series in January 2017.

This is the second of several 2017 previews as to what’s coming to Netflix as we’ve already covered the Disney, Marvel and Star Wars titles coming to Netflix and we’ll have a Dreamworks preview, a truly massive Netflix Original preview and more, later on.

Happy new year and we can’t wait for another year of great new titles on Netflix

January 2017 Highlights

New Netflix Originals

As expected, January 2017 is quite quiet when it comes to Netflix Originals, at least in the sense of big names with the exception of one. It’s been a long time coming but the first season of A Series of Unfortunate Events is finally just around the corner where we’ll be seeing the supposedly super dark and best adaptation of the famous Snicket books.

Two new Dreamworks seasons are around the corner with the second seasons of Voltron: Legendary Defender and HOME will be coming throughout the month. Our final pick is one you may not have heard of as of yet. It’s a Canadian production that Netflix purchased, and it’s called Frontier. It’s set in the 18th century and is about the control of wealth and power in the North American fur trade. This is one to watch.

New TV Series

January will treat us to some much-anticipated updates for some great TV shows. First up, we’re getting the final season of Bates Motel which has been one of the finest TV spinoffs of all time. The show features a young Norman Bates (from Psycho) who along with his mom, runs a small motel but their relationship isn’t quite as it seems.

We’ll also get an update to the long-running and super-successful comedy series, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and the latest series of the British series, Ripper Street.

New Movies

A mixed month for movies mainly because we’re seeing a lot of movies returning which have been coming on and off Netflix for quite some time. Highlights among these include V for Vendetta, ET The Extra Terrestrial, Justin Bieber’s Never Say Never and The Parent Trap.

The next movie in the Disney contract is here in the form of Alice Through the Looking Glass. The sequel to the first movie once again stars Johnny Depp who plays the mad hatter in this colorful and brilliant adventure. Superman fans will likely be disappointed that we’re getting the 2006 movie but casual watchers will still enjoy it. We’re also getting the movie based on the video game Ratchet and Clank that released during summer 2016.
