What’s new on Netflix and what’s leaving in January 2019

Netflix is kicking off the new year with a cornucopia of new streaming options for subscribers to enjoy in the comfort of their homes this January. From original shows to top-notch films, Netflix has a massive number of compelling offerings lined up. Read on for all the highlights, then scroll down for a full list of what’s new on Netflix.

Several popular house-produced series return on Netflix this January, including the award-winning Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Grace and Frankie, with new original series Sex Education also set to premiere. International comedy special Comedians of the World also debuts, along with critically acclaimed drama Girl.

The streaming giant will also add a long list of compelling films not produced in-house, including Marvel Studios’ Ant-Man and the Wasp, as well as the complete Indiana Jones movie series and Solo: A Star Wars Story.

Our top picks for January

‘Sex Education’

Hugo and Ender’s Game actor Asa Butterfield plays an awkward high-school student grappling with the uncomfortable openness of his home life, which has him living among manuals, video, and other elements of his sex therapist mother’s occupation. In order to turn the experience into something positive, he decides to set up a secret sex therapy clinic for his classmates, which opens all kinds of new doors for him and his hormone-crazed peers. The X-Files actress Gillian Anderson plays the mother of Butterfield’s character in the new series.

‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’ Season 4, Part 2

The final episodes of the award-winning series are likely to bring both laughter and tears, but all good things must end. The second half of season 4 forces Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) to make some tough decisions, and also explores what the lives of Kimmy’s closest friends — Titus (Tituss Burgess), Jacqueline (Jane Krakowski), and Lillian (Carol Kane) — might have been like without Kimmy coming into their lives.

‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’

The second standalone “anthology” film in the Star Wars universe, Solo offered a peek at the early years of one of the saga’s most beloved characters, the charismatic smuggler Han Solo. Alden Ehrenreich plays the cocky young pilot famously portrayed by Harrison Ford in the original trilogy and Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens. Not only does the film feature Han Solo, but it also chronicles the first meeting between Han and the Wookiee who would become his closest friend and copilot, Chewbacca.

As usual, January is your last chance to watch a variety of shows and movies before they leave Netflix. Be sure to catch The Godfather trilogy, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and holiday favorite Love Actually before they disappear.

Below is the full list of everything new coming to the streamer in the month of January, and everything going away. The bolded names signify more of our favorites to help you load up your binge queue.
