Happy New Year! Welcome to your daily recap of what’s new on Netflix, where we’ll be looking over all the new series and new movies that just touched down on the service to bring in the new year.

We should note that, on the whole, Netflix did have a net loss of titles today. In total, it lost 148 titles vs. the 69 new releases it added.

How does today’s haul compare to prior year’s January 1st additions (this can give you an indication as to how many titles Netflix is ​​licensing):

  • January 1st, 2022 – 85 new releases
  • 2021 – 53 new releases
  • 2019 – 114 new releases

Looking ahead, we’ve got your preview for the next 7 days and a full preview for the remainder of January 2023.

Before we dig into the full list, here are three things you should be watching today:


Best New Movies and Series on Netflix for January 1st, 2023

Kaleidoscope (Limited Series – Watch in any order!)

Rating: TV-MA
Language: English
Genre: Action, Crime, Drama
Cast: Giancarlo Esposito, Rufus Sewell, Paz Vega, Rosaline Elbay, Jai Courtney, Tati Gabrielle
Writer: Eric Garcia
Runtime: 50 min

Giancarlo Esposito heads up this innovative new Netflix series that allows you to watch the show in any order. The series’ premise is that a big heist will be pulled off, and each episode is set before, during or after the heist itself.

Reviews have been positive so far, with the show already carrying a 6.7 on IMDb, but there are very few critical reviews available at the time of publishing.


The Mindy Project (Seasons 1-6)

Rating: TV-14
Language: English
Genre: Comedy
Cast: Mindy Kaling, Ike Barinholtz, Ed Weeks
Writer: Mindy Kaling
Runtime: 30 min
Awards: Nominated for 1 Primetime Emmy. 8 wins & 26 nominations total

Netflix added several big new licensed shows to the service today with one that flew under most people’s radars (not ours, as we’ve got you covered) being all six seasons of Mindy Kaling’s The Mindy Project. That includes all the Hulu seasons, too, with this being the first time a Hulu Original has ended up on Netflix.

Here’s what you can expect if you’ve never seen the show:

“Aiming to straighten out her complicated personal life, a top doctor seeks to overcome her obsession with romantic comedies and finding a soulmate.”


Rocky Movie Collection

Rating: PG
Language: English
Genre: Drama, Sport

People rightly love when Netflix can license an entire movie franchise rather than select titles (looking at you, Transformers), and that’s the case with Rocky today with all five movies added today.

The franchise follows Rocky, a small-time Philadelphia boxer going nowhere, until an unbelievable shot to fight the world heavyweight champion lights a fire inside him.
