Netflix is making sure to kick your New Year off with a bang in the form of some of the best new content to start streaming in 2022. There’s no need to stress about the titles leaving in the next month when you can look forward to all of the outstanding Netflix Original series that will be coming in January to take their place. Get ready for everything from first looks at brand new series to new seasons of some of your longtime favorites.
There are plenty of new shows hitting Netflix in January, and it can be hard to know where to start. You can count on us to help lead the way towards titles that are just right for you, so sit back and relax as we walk you through the 11 shows to have on your radar. There are new seasons of big-name series like Ozark and After Life, in addition to the premieres of brand new must-see Netflix Originals like The Woman in the House Across the Street From the Girl in the Window, Archive 81, and The House.
So what makes the cut for our top 11, and which of them have what it takes to be in the Netflix Top 10? Make it your resolution to read on and find out.
CAST: Jason Bateman, Laura Linney, Julia Garner, Sofia Hublitz, Skylar Gaertner, Felix Solis, Jessica Frances Dukes, Damian Young
DESCRIPTION: The highly-anticipated final season of this Emmy Award-winning Netflix Original crime-drama series is finally upon us! Start your New Year off strong with the Byrde family as they deal with the explosive events of the Season 3 finale and try to rid themselves of the Ozarks and its dark criminal underworld in which Marty (Bateman) and Wendy (Linney) have become embroiled. Will the family finally be able to leave the place and the shocking things they’d seen and done there behind, or will the Ozarks swallow them whole and bring them all down for good? You can find out this month in the first part of Ozark: Season 4, hitting Netflix in the back half of January.
Stream Ozark on Netflix
CAST: Kristen Bell, Tom Riley, Mary Holland, Shelley Hennig, Christina Anthony, Samsara Yett, Cameron Britton, Benjamin Levy Aguilar, Michael Early
DESCRIPTION: Don’t be dissuaded by the fact that the title is nearly as long as the Nile River, because this dark comedy thriller is absolutely worth your time. The show follows a heartbroken woman (Bell) leading a monotonous existence without much passion, excitement, or human interaction beyond sitting and watching life go by through her home’s window. Life suddenly starts to get a lot more interesting, however, when a handsome neighbor (Riley) moves across the street with his cute daughter (Yett), giving her something new to focus on and hope for. Things take an added turn when seems to have witnessed a brutal murder (but did she really). The eight half hour-long episodes will have you hooked from the start as they parody the likes of mystery-thriller films like Rear Window and The Girl on the Train in a delicious and delightful way, so make sure to check it out at the end of the month for a great, gruesome time.
Stream The Woman in the House Across the Street From the Girl in the Window on Netflix
CAST: Ricky Gervais, Tom Basden, Tony Way, Diane Morgan, Mandeep Dhillon, Kerry Godliman, Ashley Jensen, Paul Kaye
DESCRIPTION: The third and final season of Ricky Gervais’s black comedy-drama about death, love, and human nature is hitting Netflix this month, and fans are a-buzzing. Season three sees Tony (Gervais) no longer as aggressively grouchy about life after his endeavors to punish the world around him for continuing to go on in blissful ignorance after he lost his wife, Lisa (Godliman), to breast cancer. Even still, he continues to struggle to fill the void Lisa left behind, and we see it all play out in this finale season that is equal parts hilarious and heartfelt.
Stream After Life on Netflix
CAST: Matthew Goode, Helena Bonham Carter, Miranda Richardson, Will Sharpe, Mia Goth, Claudie Blakley, Paul Kye
DESCRIPTION: “A second title involving a house?! What gives? I’m sick of houses and want more shows about apartments or boats!” If that’s what you’re thinking (because of course it is, and word-for-word, no doubt), no need to fret, because we can guarantee that this series will not only be quite different from anything else on this list, but that it is also probably unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. The House is an eccentric (and at times, downright unsettling) stop-motion dark comedy anthology in which a poor family, an anxious developer, and a fed-up landlady become tied to the same mysterious house, but all across different eras and generations. Immensely talented actors and stop-motion animators have come together to create The House, a show that can only be fully understood by taking the leap and giving it a thorough watch (or two or three).
Stream The House on Netflix
CAST: Ariana Neal, Dina Shihabi, Evan Jonigkeit, Matt McGorry, Mamoudou Athie, Daniel Johnson, Julia Chan, Martin Donovan
DESCRIPTION: Inspired by the fiction podcast of the same name that began in 2018 and has since featured three seasons of horror and psychologically stimulating stories, this premiering Netflix Original horror mystery-drama series centers on an archivist (Athie) who has been hired to restore a collection of old and damaged tapes from 1994. In the midst of the job, he finds himself reconstructing the work of a filmmaker (Shihabi) and her investigation into a dangerous cult, kicking off a desperate endeavor to save her from a horrific fate. Jump start your heart rate and eye for good content this New Year by bingeing this memorable new show as soon as it hits Netflix.
Stream Archive 81 on Netflix
CAST: Zita Hanrot, Sabrina Ouazani, Joséphine Draï, Marc Ruchmann, Syrus Shahidi
DESCRIPTION: The third season of this sleeper hit French comedy series is hitting Netflix this month, so if you haven’t heard of or seen this series before, now is the time to get onboard! With a consistently catchy soundtrack, talented cast, and hilarious, sharp script, there is so much to love about The Hook Up Plan. Season three begins with Elsa (Hanrot), Charlotte (Ouazani) and Milou’s (Draï) once seemingly-impenetrable friendship rocked by a secret romance, forcing each of them to face difficult challenges and big life decisions. See how it all goes down on this incredible international Netflix Original title.

CAST: Yuri Lowenthal, Lara Pulver, Tony Todd, Troy Baker, Josh Keaton, Kari Wahlgren, Alix Wilton Regan, JB Blanc 
DESCRIPTION: Based on the 2013 battle arena video game Dota 2DOTA: Dragon’s Blood is an animated epic fantasy series that revolves around a Dragon Knight named Davion (Lowenthal), who hunts and slays dragons in order to make the world a safer place. The show exists in a world made up of magic and mysticism, where a moon princess (Pulver) seeks to stop a destructive demon called Terrorblade (Blanc) and his plan to kill all dragons and keep their souls for himself. In the second season of the stunningly animated and action-packed series, Davion has an industry crisis, and a war of massive and potentially catastrophic proportions looms ahead. There’s clearly a lot to get excited about, so don’t drag(on) your feet and miss out on the show’s fiery sophomore season.

DESCRIPTION: This Spanish-language comedy-drama is a reboot of the 2004-2006 Mexican telenovela of the same name and incorporates some of the things (and people) that fans loved most about the original Rebelde, while also building itself into something new and unique. The Netflix series takes us back to Mexico City’s prestigious boarding school, the Elite Way School (or EWS for short), where a whole new generation of students, love, and friendship bloom, all while a mysterious society threatens to crash their musical hopes. Look forward to everything from juicy drama and intrigue to terrific tunes and performances in this Netflix Original highlight out of Mexico.

CAST: TBD (the contestants have yet to be announced but stay tuned to find out!)
DESCRIPTION: Feeling chilly this winter? Well get ready for that to change, as the third season of this spicy reality series is here and hotter than ever. Fans of the show, you know the drill: A bunch of ridiculously good-looking single people are plopped into paradise, where covering up one’s statuesque body is unnecessary (and probably discouraged, you know, in the name of creating some some must-watch TV) and they are free to mingle and flirt to their hunky heart’s content. The only catch, of course, is that to win the $100,000 grand prize, they must do the unthinkable and give up sex (dun dun DUN). Watch these horny himbos torture each other for money all over again in the third season of this very entertaining Netflix reality series.
