A new year usually brings in good news, but not today as we look at the movies/series leaving Netflix in January 2022. Instead of getting bummed out, this could help you plan your schedule more efficiently. Also, this way Netflix has room for more new and exciting content, which you can enjoy.
First on the list is a franchise that somehow made pale-looking vampires sexy. The franchise was an adaptation of a novel of the same name by Stephenie Meyer. The movie introduced us to an iconic pair of Robert Pattinson (Edward) and Kristen Stewart (Bella), who became global sensations for many teens.
The five-movie franchise ended in 2012 and pulled in fans to the supernatural/fantasy genre. Shows like “The Vampire Diaries” have thrived because of the fans’ newfound interest in the genre.
This is one of the many films directed by Ridley Scott. It won many Academy Awards, including Best Picture. Russell Crowe steals the show as Maximus. And, for the younger audience, the latest Joker, Joaquin Phoenix, as Commodus, is also equally impressive. The movie has a solid IMDb rating of 8.5.
Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood
Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood is a relatively short anime with a gripping storyline. The anime mixes equal proportions of humor and action. Furthermore, it makes optimal use of each character. Anime fans haven’t fully recovered from the live-action debacle of “Cowboy Bebop,” and this news might hurt more.
However, there is still enough time for you to binge all 64 episodes.
The Great British Baking Show
Reality shows on Netflix are rare, and one such offering is The Great Baking Show. The show did not just tend to your sweet tooth but was great to kill time. Reality shows have a long run, but 12 seasons is an astonishing feat to achieve. You won’t have enough time to binge all the seasons, and you won’t need to, as you can skip to whichever episode you like with no context.
This 2013 movie has now grown into a full-fledged series with two seasons. Bong Joon-ho directed this movie starring Chris Evans and Tilda Swinton. The movie would have performed better if it was released at this point because the conditions are somewhat similar. Unfortunately, the movie created little noise back then.
If you are planning to watch the series on Netflix, it would be a big commitment. Thus, you could start by watching the movie, and if you like it, you will always have more to enjoy.
So, have you decided which movie/series leaving Netflix in January 2022 will be on your priority list?
