The new year is right around the corner, and despite its stumbles in 2022, Netflix will continue to release dozens of originals every month of 2023. In fact, there will still be far too many original TV shows and movies to keep track of throughout the year, which is why we’ve rounded up ten we’re most excited to watch when they hit Netflix in January.

A number of popular Netflix original series return in January, including Vikings: Valhalla, Sky Rojo, and Fauda. There are also several new TV shows debuting in January, such as That ’90s Show, which is the successor to That ’70s Show. The series will focus on a new group of kids, led by Leia Forman (Callie Haverda), but the original cast will be featured as well.

The Netflix original we are most intrigued by is Kaleidoscope, which is an eight-episode anthology series about a heist that you can watch in any order you want. Piecing together the mystery will be half of the fun as the story unravels over the course of the season.
