What’s coming soon to Netflix UK in January 2022?
James R | On 31, Dec 2021
Netflix promises a surprising and moving start to the new year, with After Life and Cheer both returning to our screens, along with the first part of Ozark’s final chapter. There’s also action on offer from new film Munich: The Edge of War and a third season of TNT’s Snowpiercer, drama from the fourth season of The Sinner – and, in a sly slice of self-awareness, the debut of satirial thriller series The Woman in the House Across the Street from the Girl in the Window.
