It goes the same every year; the holidays are a time for joy and renewal, and the new year is a time to throw it all away, recover emotionally, and ignore real life until February (at least). We’re talking peak winter, existential angst — the kind of things you can’t face down without a warm blanket and a weekend TV marathon.
The Netflix library gets lots of new film titles in January 2023, including the first five “Rocky” movies, “Top Gun,” and the triumphant return of “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.” Though the TV pickings are slimmer, it’s the perfect time to catch up on breezy comfort offerings, like Japan’s charming “Old Enough!” in which toddlers run errands. The first season (comprised of 10-minute episodes, a true gift) went viral with social media clips, and Season 2 drops January 1. Let these tiny little task rabbits be an inspiration for us all in the new year, to help our loved ones, try what scares us, and buy some freaking vegetables.
Here’s what’s coming to Netflix in January 2023.
