New On Netflix In January 2021: Cobra Kai, Lupin, Disenchantment, And Much More

Here is everything coming to the streaming service for the final month of the year.


The year that shall not be named is nearly firmly in the rear-view--what better way to mark the occasion than looking forward to everything cool that's coming to Netflix in January? With the first month of 2021 upon us, the streaming service is offering up a lot of new content you'll want to make time for and watch like more episodes of Cobra Kai plus the usual assortment of "Oh yeah, I've always been meaning to watch that!" selections.

The big big headline news offering in January is Netflix bringing the highly anticipated third season of Cobra Kai--Netflix's new season of the Karate Kid TV series. As a surprise holiday gift, the streaming service moved up the show's release date to January 1, so why would you wait any longer to dive into the new episodes? Because Ralph Macchio told us in a recent interview, we already know Season 3 will have Daniel return to Japan and some secrets about his mentor Mr. Miyagi will be revealed. If you've been patiently--or impatiently--waiting for the new season, here's a good accounting of everything we know (and think we know) so far about Season 3.

January 8 has the intriguing crime drama Lupin, whose name is only coincidentally similar to the popular anime series--but only because it draws inspiration from the same source material: the fictional adventures of early 20th century gentleman thief and master of disguise, Arsène Lupin. In this modern retelling, "gentleman thief Assane Diop sets out to avenge his father for an injustice inflicted by a wealthy family." Even though it's a live-action reimagining of an overlapping influence, fans of the anime (which has an animated CG version coming out January 12) will likely get a lot of mileage out of this one.

Finally, January 15 will see Season 3 of Disenchantment come to the streaming service. Where creator Matt Groening's The Simpsons is a satire of modern life, and Futurama was a send-up of sci-fi, Netflix's Disenchantment is an animated sitcom both celebrating and skewering fantasy tropes. While the show has not exactly blown up since debuting in 2018, fans of Simpsons sensibilities and animation style have a lot to love in this show that follows the story of Bean, a rebellious and alcoholic princess. (It's funnier than that sounds.) This season will be the true test of the show, as it will be up for renewal after getting the greenlight for an impressive three seasons when first getting picked up.

Below, you'll find everything coming to Netflix in January.

I never did get to see Enchanted. I'm pretty sure they just told me that it sucks

Hate picking nits, but January is the first month of the year, not the last.

Lame, I thought they were bringing some iteration of the Lupin anime to Netflix.
