Outlander is on the list of must-watch shows and movies on Netflix for the week

There is something for everyone throughout the month when it comes to must-watch shows and movies on Netflix. Whether you adore period dramas or you’re looking out for a feature film with the kids, you’re covered. There is also some highly emotional content this week.

It’s time to break down the list to find the top five releases of the week. What will you be watching?

Here are the five much-watch shows and movies on Netflix from Jan. 25 to Jan. 31.

Outlander Season 4

We start with the period drama. At long last, Outlander Season 4 is on Netflix. It’s only taken two years since the finale of the season. It looks like this is going to be the pattern from now on.

Outlander Season 4 covers a lot of the content of Drums of Autumn, the fourth book in the saga. There are some changes though, especially when it comes to the ending of the story. For some, the changes work. For others, not so much. That’s pretty standard in the Outlander fandom.

The story picks up with Claire and Jamie in the colonies, where they ended up at the end of Season 3. They now need to decide what they’re going to do, whether they will head back to Scotland or start a new life in what will eventually become the United States of America.

In the 20th century, Brianna and Roger continue their courtship. What happens when they want different things in life?

Of course, there is plenty of drama and tears along the way. It wouldn’t be Outlander without!

Watch Outlander Season 4 in full on Wednesday, Jan. 27.
