Best New Movies and Shows Added to Netflix for January 21st
Munich – The Edge of War (2021)
Genre: Biography, Drama, History
Director: Christian Schwochow
Cast: George MacKay, Jannis Niewöhner, Jeremy Irons
Writer: Robert Harris, Ben Power
Runtime: 123 min
The big new movie for today and indeed the week is Munich – The Edge of War. The dialogue intense movie is based on the best-selling book by Robert Harris and set in late 1938 with Europe on the brink of war.
Munich sees some excellent performances throughout and is faithful to its source material.
Ozark (Season 4 – Part 1)

Cast: Jason Bateman, Laura Linney, Sofia Hublitz
Writer: Bill Dubuque, Mark Williams
Runtime: 60 min
Netflix’s first major TV release of 2022 comes today with the first batch of episodes which will make up the final season of Ozark.
The crime drama series has long been compared to the likes of Breaking Bad but in truth, it does so much to set itself aside and as a result, ranks as our favorite show on Netflix right now.
This season we see tensions reach boiling point with the Byrdes getting ever closer to the cartels they’ve been working for over the past several seasons.
We also see Janet McTeer join the cast.
That Girl Lay Lay (Season 1)
Cast: Tiffany Daniels, Gabrielle Nevaeh Green, Thomas Hobson
Runtime: 23 mins
Hitting Netflix globally today is what we believe to be the first major Netflix and Nickelodeon show to come from the deal struck back in 2019. It arrives as a Netflix Original outside the US.
Here’s what you can expect from the new Nickelodeon show:
“Quirky student Sadie is juggling high school while keeping a huge secret: Her hype-girl avatar has come to life in the form of fierce friend Lay Lay!”
