Old favorites and cult classics, like the entire Indiana Jones series and Pulp Fiction, arrive on January 1st. Keep reading for our highlights of anticipated shows along with the full list of what is coming and what is leaving Netflix this January!


Carmen Sandiego

From video game to game show, the lady in red has been lost in both time and space. Now, she comes to Netflix for a new generation! Carmen Sandiego (voiced by Gina Rodriguez) is still a villain, but now she “uses her skills for good” and “travels the world foiling V.I.L.E.’s evil plans — with help from her savvy sidekicks.” Get ready for a new take on a childhood favorite on January 18th!

Ant-Man and the Wasp

Now that Marvel‘s Avengers: Infinity War has come to Netflix, find out what Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) was up to during the big battle with Thanos (Josh Brolin). Ant-Man and the Wasp is set simultaneously alongside Infinity War, but on the opposite side of the US. After the fallout from Captain America: Civil War, Scott Lang has had to hang up his Ant-Man suit. However, Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) and Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) convince him to slip his house arrest and help them with a secret task. Much like the first, this sequel contains plenty of comedy blended with the heroic adventure to keep everyone entertained. Ant-Man and the Wasp crashes to Netflix on January 29th.

Nelson) to be a stay-at-home father raising Violet (Sarah Vowell), Dash (Huck Milner), and baby Jack-Jack (Eli Fucile).
