Here’s What’s Coming To Netflix In January

start your binging!

by daniel barna

Sometimes it feels like Netflix was specifically invented to help us get through January, when the outside winds are whipping, our post-holiday credit card statements are longer than the Great Wall of China, and our waistlines require their own zip code. With that said, this January's incoming slate is somewhat anemic, despite a few huge anticipated offerings from the streaming giant's original programming division.

On January 15th, Netflix will unveil the first season of Degrassi: Next Class—their reboot of the beloved Canadian tween drama that gave Drake his start in showbiz, and gave us some valuable life lessons about safe sex, honesty, friendship, and safe sex. Did we mention safe sex?

A week later, Chelsea Handler's comeback is officially on when her documentary series Chelsea Does makes it debut. In it, the acid-tongued comedian will assume the role of flaneur while exploring hot button topics like marriage, drugs, racism, and Silicon Valley. Judging by the hilarious first trailer, it looks like Handler is back and better than ever. 

While the list of feature films is somewhat on the thin side, comedic Along Came Polly debuts on New Years Day, Denzel Washington's masterful performance in Training Day can be streamed January 4th, and The Overnight, a racy indie starring Adam Scott and Taylor Schilling, makes its debut on January 15th. Check out the full list below.
