2021 Netflix TV Series Premiere Date Schedule: Full List Of Confirmed Shows Streaming

If one thing can be said about the entertainment world in 2020, it is that it was the year of streaming. Despite some strong competition from the likes of Disney+, Amazon, Hulu, and new additions including Peacock and HBO Max, Netflix proved that it is still at the top of the pecking order. With returning Netflix original TV shows like The Crown and Ozark and record-breaking newcomers like The Queen’s Gambit, Tiger King, and many others becoming pop culture phenomenons more than made up for the absence of Stranger Things, The Witcher, and Mindhunter. But as we look at the start of the 2021 Netflix premiere line-up, a lot of us are wondering what all will be new on Netflix in the coming weeks and months.

Well, just like in years past, 2021 (the early part at least) will be another great year for Netflix with the long-awaited debut of new episodes of Cobra Kai in January and so much more beyond that. Below is a monthly rundown of all the Netflix series (both new and returning) you can expect to catch on the popular streaming service over the course of the next year. Please note that all release times are at 3:01 a.m. ET (12:01 a.m. PT), and all new series are listed in ALL CAPS.

William Zabka and Ralph Macchio in Cobra Kai

January 2021 Netflix Premieres

Netflix is kicking off (pun intended) 2021 in a spectacular way with the arrival of Cobra Kai Season 3 at some point during the first month of the new year. The third season of the former YouTube original series was originally slated to premiere on January 8, 2021, but Netflix shifted to a New Year's Day launch after temporarily announcing the next chapter in the never-ending saga of Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) and Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) as “Coming In January 2021.”

Philip Sledge

Philip grew up in Louisiana (not New Orleans) before moving to St. Louis after graduating from Louisiana State University-Shreveport. When he's not writing about movies or television, Philip can be found being chased by his three kids, telling his dogs to stop yelling at the mailman, or yelling about professional wrestling to his wife. If the stars properly align, he will talk about For Love Of The Game being the best baseball movie of all time.
