What’s New On Netflix : January 2020
Happy New Year! 2020 looks like it’s going to be a good year for Netflix if all the amazing titles they’ve lined up in January are anything to go by. Check out your binge watching list for January 2020.
It’s going to be a sad month as we say goodbye to two longterm Netflix series with both The Ranch and Bojack Horseman having their final parts added throughout January.
The first of the month, as always, brings with it plenty of new licensed movies from Warner Brothers, Sony Pictures and others. Beyond that, the Netflix Original lineup dominated the rest of the month as we’ve yet to learn of all the third-party content picked up.
