2021 was a year that gave us some huge Netflix hits – from French crime thriller Lupin to Korean sensation Squid Game, just about everyone was catered to by the streamer’s output throughout the year.


And the early indications are that the platform is set to have another bumper year in 2022, with several new series and films arriving in the library in January – including the latest instalments of some of the streamer’s biggest shows.

Perhaps the headliner is the third season of After Life, with Ricky Gervais’ comedy-drama set to drop its final batch of episodes midway through the month, while fans of Jason Bateman-starring Ozark will be treated to the first part of the crime drama’s final series a few days later.

And of course there are plenty of new originals to sink your teeth into throughout the month as well, with highlights including dark comedy stop-motion series The House, shape-shifting spy drama In From the Cold, and crime parody The Woman in the House Across the Street from the Girl in the Window.

As for films, perhaps the biggest new arrival is the original film Munich – The Edge of War, adapted from the Robert Harris novel of the same name, while several older films – from Planes, Trains and Automobiles to Marie Antoinette – also join the library.

Read on for everything you need to know about the titles coming to Netflix this month.
