The Shows Coming Back to Netflix This Year
Beginning with a January 2020 watch list update
Now that 2020 is in motion, it’s time to acknowledge that big things lie ahead for entertainment. For one, award show season is officially upon us. With the 77th Annual Golden Globes done (though Ricky Gervais’ quips will be engrained in our minds forever), the Screen Actors Guild Awards coming up and the 92nd Annual Academy Awards on the horizon, it’s a great time to see what’s good, what’s making waves and what to keep our eyes peeled for in cinema. But let’s not discount television! While it’s a long way to the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards, it’s never too early to start picking out titles to add to the watch list. And over on Netflix, we’re already eyeing several titles with long-awaited new seasons hitting the streaming platform this year.
Below, we round up the series coming out with brand-new episodes in January. Be sure to check back in for updates on new season premiere dates for the rest of 2020!
Starring Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Sam Waterston and Martin Sheen
Screen legends Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin reprise their roles as Grace Hanson and Frankie Bergstein in the offbeat Netflix original. Now exploring well beyond the life-after-divorce story arc, season six brings with it new twists and turns as the two best friends come to terms with growing older and, as season five’s The Wedding episode suggests, growing apart.
The hit drama-comedy series Grace and Frankie returns to Netflix on January 15. Tap here to catch up and stream the first five seasons.
Starring Asa Butterfield, Gillian Anderson, Emma Mackey, Ncuti Gatwa, Aimee Lou Wood and Connor Swindells
The highly-anticipated sophomore season of Sex Education sees Otis (Asa Butterfield), Eric (Ncuti Gatwa) and Maeve (Emma Mackey) back at it with the rest of the teens of Moordale Secondary. With indirect guidance from his sex therapist mom Jean (Gillian Anderson), Otis continues to carry out his duty as impromptu sex therapist to his schoolmates with “out-of-office” drama involving navigating high school life, friendships and young love.
Stream eight fresh new episodes of Sex Education on January 17 only on Netflix.
Starring Kiernan Shipka, Lucy Davis, Miranda Otto, Ross Lynch, Chance Perdomo, Michelle Gomez, Jaz Sinclair, Lachlan Watson
In its third installment, Sabrina Spellman’s chilling adventures includes a side trip to the underworld. “Sabrina (Kiernan Shipka) can’t live with herself, knowing that Nick made the ultimate sacrifice and is suffering, burning in Hell under Madam Satan’s watchful eye,” the creators of the series revealed. “So with an assist from her mortal friends, 'The Fright Club' (consisting of Harvey, Rosalind, and Theo), Sabrina makes it her mission to free him from eternal damnation and bring him back into her arms.” But naturally, the Dark Lord has other plans.

Western comedy-drama The Ranch is a story about a would-be pro athlete Colt (Ashton Kutcher) suddenly finding himself down a different career path: returning back home to his family ranch in Colorado. After a four-year run, it caps off its fourth and final season by bringing its beloved ensemble cast together again to tie up loose ends and answer one of many crucial questions: What happened to Mary’s ex, Nick? Major changes are in store for the Bennett family and, finally, viewers get some answers to address a major cliffhanger in part 7.

It’s a bittersweet goodbye to one of the most celebrated adult animated series on Netflix: BoJack Horseman wraps up January 2020 with part 2 of its sixth and final season. The last eight episodes of Raphael Bob-Waksberg’s ingenious dark comedy sees BoJack (Will Arnett) on the long road to recovery.
