Netflix is ringing in 2024 by serving up some much-needed nostalgia. The streamer is throwing it back to the ‘90s in January with the addition of several classic family-friendly movies to its library — including Jurassic Park, Antz, and Beethoven — and a new season of Sonic Prime, based on the beloved ‘90s video game character Sonic the Hedgehog. With so many familiar titles to choose from, there are zero reasons not to spend a lazy Sunday snuggling on the couch with your fam as winter sets in.
The nostalgia picks aside, January is shaping up to be a terrific month for the preschool set (and the moms who have to find new ways to entertain them). This month, Netflix is adding new seasons of CoComelon, Peppa Pig, and Not Quite Narwhal — all perfect shows to keep the youngest members of your family occupied between play time and snack time.
Sadly, there are not quite as many options for tweens and teens this month, but the streaming is serving up the perfect excuse to host an ABBA family sing-off with the addition of both Mamma Mia! movies.
Check out the full lineup of family-friendly movies and TV shows coming to Netflix in January ahead.
