What will be the first series and movie you watch on Netflix in the year 2020? Here are 10 great TV shows and movies not to miss!

Netflix is kicking the year 2020 off with some brilliant TV content. From new originals to upcoming new seasons to some of your favorite television programs, the streaming giant has them all! When it comes to movie selections, though, we’ll have to continue playing the waiting game.

Unfortunately, Netflix won’t be releasing many new original movies in the month of January 2020. No need to be disappointed, I’m sure there are great movies to come! In the meantime, the streaming service does have a lot of nostalgic movies on the way. In fact, January 2020 may as well be a nostalgic one! After all, this is the start of a new decade. What better time than to look back at some of our favorite films of the past several years?

Let’s go over movies and TV shows to watch on Netflix in January 2020, beginning with 5 nostalgic films: 

Catch Me If You Can: The 2002 adventure drama stars Tom Hanks and Leonardo DiCaprio in the biopic on Frank Abagnale Jr.

Charlie and the Chocolate FactoryWe all remember the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory adaptation starring Johnny Depp and Tim Burton from 2005. It’s difficult to believe this premiered 15 years ago, rewatch it Jan. 1!

Inception: It has been a decade since Inception blew our minds, and it still holds up! The movie stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Ellen Page, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and others.

The Invention of LyingGear up for Ricky Gervais’ After Life (which premieres its second season sometime in 2020) by watching his movie about the first man to have ever told a lie.

The RingI remember The Ring and The Grudge scaring me as a teenager, so with a new sequel to The Grudge premiering soon, this will be a lot of fun to watch.
