It’s that time when everyone’s New Year’s resolutions are over, and it’s back to binge-watching on the couch. Fortunately, Netflix is here to make sure you have plenty to add to your watch list. And if you’re more fitness-minded, it can keep giving you new content to keep your mind occupied while you’re on the treadmill.
But before you dive into the show’s new content, you can also catch older movies joining the service in February. If you haven’t “Rings of Power,” all three of Peter Jackson’s “Lord of the Rings” movies can scratch that Middle-Earth itch now. And if you’re still feeling a little bit of the travel bug, you can “Eat Worship Love” with Julia Roberts in Italy, India and Bali.
Or maybe you’re feeling a little distaste for Will Smith in the face of all The Slap controversy? Netflix is offering “The Pursuit of Happyness,” in which he plays a homeless man and single parent of a boy, played by real-life son Jaden Smith. But there are also two original “Bad Boys” movies, which you can see as a search as reports are that Will Smith and Martin Lawrence are returning for a fourth installment.
Or if you really want to lean in to disdain any updates, watch “”The Great British Baking Show: The Professional.” Of course the appeal of the flagship show is that it’s for those who don’t like it, but at least you can dive over Victoria sponges and iced treats, maybe even eating some baked goods from comfort for your sofa.
Here are some of the highlights coming to Netflix this month:
The premise of this four-part docuseries is already sketchy – a rich pet, a German shepherd to be exact, with a higher net worth than you and probably everyone you know.

Netflix’s “On My Broke” was loved for its inclusive, talented young cast and the show’s coming-of-age story set in a predominantly black and Latino neighborhood in Los Angeles. When the show ended its four seasons at the end of 2021, many people were disappointed to see it go. But now it’s getting a spinoff: “Freeridge.”
“On My Broke” managed to balance real social conflict with dark mystery, friendship and innocent love, and “Freeridge” seems set to do the same. Following a new set of characters, sisters Gloria (Keyla Monterroso Mejia) and Ines (Bryana Salaz) and their friends Cam (Tenzing Norgay Trainor) and Demi (Ciara Riley Wilson), who accidentally cursed themselves with a mysterious old box, “Freeridge” puts a new spin on the neighborhood and its residents who are viewers they have come to love.

Not only do they live in opposite places, but they have opposite lifestyles – Debbie is a single-mom type while Peter changes life plans (and girls) with ease. When the two switch houses for a week, they discover little in each other’s lives that could lead to love.
Written by “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’s” Aline Brosh McKenna, that’s why the movie also stars alums Rachel Bloom and Vela Lovell, as well as Jesse Williams, Tig Notaro, Shiri Appleby and Steve Zahn.
