Everything coming to Netflix, Amazon Prime, and HBO Now in January


True Detective, Kimmy Schmidt, and Indiana Jones

Share this story

With 2019 just days away, it’s important to cherish the hope and optimism that comes with every new year. A fresh calendar brings a fresh start — one where anything is possible! And then, of course, after a couple of days of well-intentioned good behavior, it’ll be time to drop the ceremony and resume the rhythms of the previous year and just get on with life. But what’s the best way to forget that we’ve thrown all those noble intentions out the door? Watching streaming content, of course!

Netflix is kicking things off with the third season of A Series of Unfortunate Events, the final season of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and its latest series, a reboot of Carmen Sandiego. But while the focus for the company has been on original content lately, it’s adding some noteworthy library titles to its lineup to start the new year as well. The entire Indiana Jones franchise will be coming to the service, as will Solo: A Star Wars Story. And if that wasn’t enough, Netflix customers will also be able to watch Monty Python and the Holy Grail. (If you haven’t seen it yet, make it the first thing you watch in the new year.)

Amazon Prime customers will have their own selection of new and classic titles, including the Timothée Chalamet-starring Beautiful Boy, coming just in time for awards season. The next installment of the series The Adventures of Rocky & Bullwinkle will also be arriving, as will the critical favorite Eighth Grade. But the main attraction should really be 1971’s Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. (If you haven’t seen this yet, make it the second thing you watch in the new year.)

When it comes to marquee television shows, HBO is the clear winner with the third season of True Detective, starring Mahershala Ali. Well, at least it has the potential to be the clear winner; the show’s second season didn’t go over nearly as well as the first. The latest season of Crashing will also premiere in January, and the service will be getting recent films like Ocean’s 8 and Logan — and not-so-recent ones like X2, Traffic, and The Outsiders. (If you haven’t seen any of these, you should probably just watch Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory again. Or have some friends, family members, or loved ones watch it. Just make sure someone is celebrating the genius of Gene Wilder, dammit.)

We’ve included the full list of titles for all three services below.
