New Netflix movies and shows: January 1, 2023

It’s 2023! Somehow, we made it through 2022 and are starting a new year. And while a new year means new goals and plans, it also means lots of movies and shows will be added to Netflix. So there will be plenty to watch while you (hopefully) have the day off.

The biggest series coming to Netflix on Sunday, Jan. 1, 2023 is Kaleidoscope. The show stars Rosaline Elbay, Giancarlo Esposito, Tati Gabrielle, Rufus Sewell, Paz Vega, and Niousha Noor.

The eight-episode series follows the story of the largest heist to ever be attempted and takes place over the span of 24 years. It’s loosely based on a real-life story of when 70 billion dollars in bonds went missing in downtown Manhattan during Hurricane Sandy.

Take a peek at the trailer here:

Looking for some Oscar-nominated movies to watch to start off the new year? A bunch of those are available to stream on Netflix on New Year’s Day as well. The movies include The Aviator, Brokeback Mountain, Closer, Forrest Gump, Grease, Jerry Maguire, Parenthood, Top Gun, and Road to Perdition.

All five Rocky movies are also streaming on Netflix on Jan. 1, 2023. This includes Rocky, Rocky II, Rocky III, Rocky IV, and Rocky V. The Sylvester Stallone movies follow a Philadelphia boxer who gets the chance to fight the world heavyweight champion. As the movies go on, Rocky must deal with greater challenges in the ring and in his personal life.
