Fans of Hotel Transylvania’s films may be saddened that it won’t hit theaters, but the latest film will be available on Amazon Prime Video worldwide on January 14th.

Now they must work together, adjusting to their new mismatched bodies, to find a cure before it’s too late.

How I met your father

Where: Hulu
Release date: January 18

Of course, people were a little skeptical about a new spin on How I Met Your Mother when it was announced. And yet Hulu’s gender-reversed sitcom reboot starring Hilary Duff looks incredibly charming. Maybe it’s all the bad news of the past two years, but the light tone, nostalgic format and clever chatter in the trailers make How I Met Your Father look like a delightful new show to watch week after week. It’s one of the most exciting new streaming shows to watch this month.

Ozarks season 4

Where: Netflix
Release date: January 21

Part one of the highly anticipated final season of Ozark will be one of Netflix’s first new streaming releases of the new year. The season three finale saw the Byrde family delve deeper into the criminal underworld of the Ozarks and regain a measure of control for themselves. The season also ended when Ruth made some shocking discoveries that could put her in direct conflict with the Byrdes. There’s no word yet on when part two of the final season will be released, but part one should keep us going for a while.

Servant Season 3

Where: Apple TV Plus
Release date: January 21

One of the main stars of Apple TV Plus’ original programming, Servant is the platform’s biggest hit. The series, from M. Night Shyamalan, follows a grieving couple who reunite with their dead son when a mysterious new nanny enters their lives. Servant is clever, chilling and completely unpredictable, and the third season is one of the most exciting upcoming shows of 2022.

Buck Wild’s Ice Age Adventures

Where: Disney Plus
Release Date: January 28

Your favorite prehistoric characters are back in the latest Ice Age installment, coming to Disney Plus. When the possum brothers Crash and Eddie set out on their own in search of some independence, they find themselves trapped under the ice in a huge cavern inhabited by dinosaurs. With the help of one-eyed weasel Buck Wild and some new friends, they must save the Lost World from dinosaurs.

The woman in the house across from the girl in the window

Where: Netflix
Release Date: January 28

The title alone tells you exactly what area we are in here. Think The Girl on the Train and The Woman in the Window, for starters. An incarcerated with a drinking problem thinks she has found a lifeline back into society in the form of new neighbors, but her hopes are dashed when she witnesses a gruesome murder across the street. Or is this all just a misunderstanding? Judging by the trailer, every trope is here: the endless glasses of wine, the overfilled skeptical agent, the dodgy narrator. Kristen Bell stars in what promises to be a loving ripple of a hugely popular genre.
