Several popular Netflix Original projects debut this month, including season 2 of Sex Education, the third season of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, and the second half of the sixth and final season of BoJack Horseman. The streaming giant also has a cornucopia of noteworthy films and series not produced in-house on tap this month, including ’80s classic Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, biopic Steve Jobs, and both films in the Kill Bill saga.

Our top picks for January

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: Part 3

Reeling from all of the demonic happenings in the second story arc, Sabrina Spellman and her pals now find themselves with a new mission in the upcoming season of the hit Netflix series: Rescue her boyfriend, Nicholas Scratch, from the bowels of Hell. Sabrina finds herself struggling with the new responsibilities of being the queen of the dark realm after unseating the Dark Lord, but she doesn’t have much time to get acclimated as a strange carnival rolls into town. The new season of the teen occult drama brings back star Kiernan Shipka as the titular Sabrina, while also introducing a new threat in the form of Caliban, a Prince of Hell with his eyes on the throne.

BoJack Horseman: Season 6 (Part B)

The sixth and final season of the acclaimed animated series rolls out with BoJack finally making his way toward redemption during a stint in rehab, but will he find what he needs when he gets there? Before that happens, he needs to confront the sins of his past and make amends to the many, many individuals he’s hurt along the way.

As usual, January is your last chance to watch a variety of shows and movies before they leave Netflix. Be sure to catch all 10 seasons of Friends, all four seasons of Spartacus, and zombie comedy Zombieland before they disappear.

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