There Is So Much Newness Coming To Netflix In January

Including Taylor Lautner’s return to acting!

by Ani Bundel

The new year is almost here and it’s the beginning of a new streaming era. Between 2019 and 2021, 12 new streaming services launched, several of which are now significant players. Viewers will be relieved to learn 2022 will be calmer. But this is where the competition starts in earnest, as longtime streaming giants like Netflix will have to fight harder for eyeballs than ever before, with brand new series and movies. Based on what’s coming to Netflix in January 2022, the company is ready to win.

Netflix is hitting January with a mix of old and new. Several popular shows will arrive with brand-new seasons, including third seasons for Too Hot To Handle and After Life; the Emmy-winning Ozark is also returning in January with the first half of Season 4. But it’s the new stuff that is arguably the most intriguing. There’s Taylor Lautner’s return to film in Home Team, a football movie co-starring Kevin James. In series, Queer Eye’s Jonathan Van Ness is launching a show based on his podcast of the same name, Getting Curious with Jonathan Van Ness. The Woman in the House Across the Street From the Girl in the Window promises to parody the current trend in thrillers in which an unreliable narrator-type woman may have witnessed a crime. There’s Hype House, a look at social media stars’ lives. And there’s a brand new K-drama, All of Us Are Dead, which puts a spin on the popular zombie trope.

Here’s everything coming to Netflix in January 2022.
