What’s Coming to (and Leaving) Netflix in January 2022

The trailer certainly seems to have the tropes down: Isolated woman in a gorgeous home (The Girl on the Train, The Woman in the Window)? Check. A protagonist with a substance abuse habit that renders them the ultimate unreliable narrator (The Woman in the Window)? Check. Lots of artfully shattered casserole dishes? Check. I don’t know what that last one is from, specifically, but it’s funnier every time it happens.

I honestly don’t know if there is enough meat on this bone to sustain the show for even six episodes—Rear Window is a rich vein and all, but The Simpsons did it in one and I don’t know that enough people bothered to watch The Woman in the Window to appreciate Kristen Bell’s lacerating take on Amy Adams’ woebegone Oscar-bait performance in that reviled film. But it’s coming in January all the same, and you probably don’t want to leave the house in January anyway.

Beyond that, the pickings are a bit slim this month. The James Wan-produced podcast-turned-series Archive 81 (Jan. 14), which takes a deep dive into the creepy filmography of a fictional film director who has attracted a literal cult following, shows promise, and a lot of you are undoubtedly excited about the first part of the final season of the Jason Bateman/Laura Linney crime drama Ozark (Jan. 21).

Otherwise, your best bets seem to be among the many new foreign series and films Netflix is importing, from Spanish-language horror thriller The Wasteland (date TBA), to to Framed (Jan. 27), and an Italian murder mystery/comedy that sounds like it is in the same vein as Only Murders in the Building.
