Here's what's coming to and leaving Netflix in January 2018

It’s that time of the month again, when Netflix releases its list of films and TV series that will be coming to and leaving the premiere SVOD service during the following month; in this case, that month will be January. So if any of the below titles are of interest to you, add them to your watchlists/calendars, noting when they are expected to arrive or exit.

Of note, given Shadow & Act’s stated interest, titles coming to Netflix include a quintet of Bring It On movies, including the original led by Gabrielle Union and another starring Solange Knowles. Four Lethal Weapon movies are also available. More titles coming uncle the Morgan Freeman-starring The Shawshank Redemption and the Denzel Washington-starring Training Day. As far as Netflix originals, there is a new Katt Williams standup special, Katt Williams: Great America.

Titles leaving include Samuel L. Jackson in Pulp Fiction, White Chicks, Daddy Day Care, Four Brothers and Don’t Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood, just to name a few.

Be sure to view the full list below for all titles leaving and coming.
