What's Coming to Netflix in January 2020 —Full List of Releases

There's a lot to look forward to in the new year, especially on Netflix.

The streaming giant is only looking to get even bigger in 2020, and has already signed deals to release dozens of several new titles from major players like Ryan Murphy, Shonda Rhimes, and Tyler Perry throughout the year. Perry is up first with his debut Netflix film, A Fall From Grace, slated to arrive on the streaming platform in January.

A few new series are slated to launch at the top of the year too, including the new thriller, Messiah, starring Michelle Monaghan and Mehdi Dehbi. January will bring the return of several Netflix favorites like Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and Grace and Frankie. Meanwhile, the first month of the year will mark the end for some shows, including BoJack Horseman and The Ranch.
