Netflix Is Adding A Ton Of Original Movies/TV Shows Next Month

Cobra Kai

January is usually referred to as the theatrical industry’s dumping ground, where projects destined to fail are shoved out into the world to die a slow and painful death at the box office. Obviously, next month could see almost every new release face a similar fate as business is still showing no signs of recovery, but Netflix are looking to buck the trend and rehabilitate January’s reputation as a safe haven for fresh content, and the streaming service have some major original movies and TV shows on the horizon.

The most exciting without a doubt is History of Swear Words, which sees Nicolas Cage hosting a six-episode series that delves into the origins and multiple uses of profanity. Anyone who doesn’t have their curiosity immediately piqued by the idea of Hollywood’s most manic and memeable actor fronting a show where the episodes are titled “F*ck”, “Sh*t”, “B*tch”, “D*ck”, “P*ssy” and “D*amn” is out of their mind.

Elsewhere, Shia LaBeouf is currently in the headlines for all the wrong reasons, but his upcoming movie Piece of a Woman is also on the way to Netflix next month, and looks to be an agonizingly powerful drama. Then there’s Anthony Mackie’s sci-fi actioner Outside the Wire, literary adaptation The White Tiger and star-studded period drama The Dig, which features Ralph Fiennes, Cary Mulligan and Lily James. Of course, there’s plenty more content coming in the first few weeks of 2021 as well, and you can check out the full list of every title – original and non-original – headed to the streaming site in January below.
