Whether we’re ready or not, 2019 is upon us. 2018 is in the bank and with it comes a fresh set of Netflix new releases. Hey, we all need something to break our New Year resolutions. Might as well be some quality entertainment. Or at least a show or movie which doesn’t involve us getting off the couch.
Well, that was quick. One month of 2019 is in the books, and how many of us have stuck out our New Year’s resolutions? Hearing crickets… With one month coming to a close, it does give us a fresh slate of Netflix new releases. The streaming giant is serving up more comedy than romance.
If you’re a fan of American Pie or The 40-Year-Old-Virgin, you’re in luck come February. How about some horror to recover from the bad Valentine’s Day gift? Netflix is adding Hostel and Final Destination to its catalog. And then there’s the Jaws collection. On February 1st, kick back and watch one of the classics.
Most of Netflix’s new originals are focused on the standup comedy, though we finally get a look at The Umbrella Academy starring Ellen Page on February 15. It’s based on the comic series from Gerard Way.
It wouldn’t be a list of Netflix new releases without a marketing video:
Of course, I have to mention some of the best shows on the streaming network. Peaky Blinders is an absolute gem. The Last Kingdom was picked up for a fourth season. And Altered Carbon satisfies the sci-fi itch while we wait for what Amazon does with The Expanse.
