Neflix Movies and Series to release in January 2021
1. Cobra Kai: Season 3 (January 1st, 2021)
One of the most pleasant surprises for Netflix subscribers who have not watched the series on YouTube Red, Cobra Kai gathered thousands of new fans when he debuted on the world’s most popular streaming platform. Now, with the expectation up there, the show will win its third year.

2. Pose: Season 2 (January 1st, 2021)
Another of Ryan Murphy’s children, Pose was a huge success in the United States, being nominated for the Emmy Awards 2019. The hype surrounding the series was such that Netflix acquired the rights to broadcast in Brazil. The problem is the window between the debut in the North American country and here: for this second season, it took a year and a half.
Regardless, the show’s success comes from its ability to represent what the LGBTQ community was like in New York in the 1980s. One of the driving forces of the attraction is music, which portrays the time well – proof of this is that, the plot will follow from the release of Madonna’s song Vogue, which propelled LGBTQ clubs and balls into the mainstream in the early 1990s.
3. The Story of the Bad Word: Season 1 (January 5th, 2021)

5. Night Stalker: Torture and Terror: Season 1 (January 13, 2021)
If there’s one thing Netflix does very well, it’s telling real crime stories. The catalog is full of these productions, and the streaming service shows no signs of stopping anytime soon. Proof of this is the arrival of yet another such show.

Gradually Netflix is building a catalog of anime of respect and annoying more and more giants of the sector such as Crunchyroll. After making One Piece available to its subscribers, in January the platform will add Kuroko’s Basketball ( Kuroko no Basuke , in the original) to the catalog.
The anime is an adaptation of Tadatoshi Fujimaki’s manga and full plate for basketball fans. The plot follows five very talented players from the Teikou school who, when they finished elementary school II, disbanded each one to a high school. One of them is Seirin, where Taiga Kagami comes face to face with Kuroko, a short, slight and apparently mediocre guy.
However, it doesn’t take long for Kagami to discover that the boy was Teikou’s “sixth phantom member” and that he is now willing to prove himself in the face of “miracle players”.

The few humans left now live on a perpetually moving train, with 1001 wagons circulating around the world.
