Much of the chatter surrounding Netflix during the second half of the year last year was focused on how much new competition was coming. Now that Disney+ and Apple TV+ have both launched, however, it’s pretty safe to say that all the doomsday prepping was ridiculous. Yes, Disney+ is an awesome service that’s packed full of popular content. But at $6.99 per month or even less with an annual subscription, it’s supplemental to Netflix subscribers, if anything. And as for Apple’s new streaming service, well, we’ll just say that Netflix executives probably aren’t losing any sleep over it at this point. Instead, Netflix is just marching on, doing what it does best: Releasing awesome new original movies and shows each month, and peppering in popular content from third-party studios here and there.

December was a pretty huge month for Netflix where original content is concerned. The biggest news was obviously the premiere of The Witcher, a new fantasy series based on the books of the same name. The show’s release was a huge success for Netflix, and it’s currently one of the company’s top-rated original series of all time. Other big releases last month include Michael Bay’s movie 6 Underground, as well as new seasons of You, Fuller House, Lost In Space, Magic for Humans, and more. Check out all of Netflix’s original releases from last month right here in our December roundup.

December was big indeed, but now it’s time to turn our attention to January — and holy cow, the New Year is off to a strong start at Netflix. January 1st marked the arrival of a new Netflix original series called Messiah that was created by Michael Petroni and directed by James McTeigue, who is perhaps best known for directing V for Vendetta. We’re already a little more than halfway through the season and it is truly tremendous. If Messiah isn’t already on your radar, it needs to be.

Other big releases in January from Netflix’s stable of original content include a new season of Grace and Frankie, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: Part 3, and the final season of The Ranch. And perhaps biggest of all, the second part of Bojack Horseman season 6 hits Netflix at the end of the month, and it continues to be one of the company’s most lauded shows. There’s plenty more in store for Netflix subscribers this month, and you’ll find the full slate of original series and movie releases below.
