And there’s plenty of new stuff, too, like Comedians, of the World, a comedy series featuring 47 up-and-coming comedians from every corner of the globe, and Sex Education, a new British drama starring The X-Files’ Gillian Anderson.
Relatively speaking, January is traditionally one of the quieter months of the year for new releases on the streaming service… so on this showing, it’s likely to be a big 2019.
