All this week’s Netflix Originals (Available from Friday 4th January 2019)

One of the great things about Netflix is their Netflix Original content – be it films or series made by Netflix themselves or exclusive content available only on Netflix after it airs on regular TV. Every week we will give you a round-up of the new Netflix Originals becoming available in the next week. We will aim to post every week on Thursday evening with what will be available over the coming week. Perfect if you’re looking to check out what new Originals are available to watch over your weekend or if you’re planning a week-long Netflix binge watch! This area is exclusively for Netflix Originals, for general Netflix additions and removals or to view the current full catalogue check out your regional New On Netflix website.

Happy New Year folks! It seems we’re not the only ones feeling the post-Christmas lull as this weeks Netflix Original additions are few and far between. A mere five Netflix Originals are set to land this week so instead of our ‘Top Picks’ for the first week in January here is, well, all of them! To be fair we probably needed to rest our brains a little after ‘Bird Box’ and ‘Bandersnatch’, right? Check out the trailers below and let us know what you’re looking forward to this week.
