New Year, New Shows

What’s coming and going on Netflix this January. 

As 2018 rings in another year of failed New Year’s gym resolutions, it’s time to binge Netflix!

Netflix brings a mix of classics, originals and surprisingly, some horror films to January. That being said, some old-time favorites like Grease and Free Willy are gone for good.

Other movies leaving the collection include The Addams Family, Chicago, Daddy Day Care, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, Forrest Gump, Gremlins, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (Seasons 14-17), Mean Girls, The Mighty Ducks, Pokémon: Indigo League (Season 1), Requiem for a Dream, Saw I-VI and a list of others.

Though I am sad to see movies like The Addams Family and Mean Girls go, excitement sets in as I wait to see what Netflix has to offer in January. We start the year off right with adventures like Apollo 13, Bring it On, National Treasure, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales and The Shawshank Redemption.

Starting Jan. 10, blockbuster bombs like 47 Meters Down and Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie will make an appearance until Jan. 31 when Cars 3 zooms in to save the day!

Other films coming to Netflix include:


  • Batman Returns
  • Breakfast & Tiffany’s
  • Caddyshack
  • Furry Vengeance
  • The Godfather
  • Justin Bieber: Never Say Never
  • King Kong (2005)
  • Love Actually
  • The Lovely Bones
  • Midnight in Paris
  • Sharknado 5: Global Swarming
  • Stardust
  • The Truman Show
  • Wedding Crashers
  • Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory
