Sidharth Malhotra in Mission Majnu

  • Mission Majnu release date is January 20 on Netflix
  • Fauda season 4 is also out January 20 on Netflix
  • Vikings: Valhalla season 2 arrives January 12 on Netflix

Netflix has announced only two originals from India for January 2023 as yet. Sidharth Malhotra plays an undercover Indian spy in the 1970s in Mission Majnu, who's sent across the border on a deadly mission to expose a covert nuclear weapons program in the heart of Pakistan. Originally designed to be a theatrical release, Mission Majnu was sold off to Netflix earlier in December. Timed for Republic Day, Mission Majnu is out January 20, 2023, on Netflix. The other Indian Netflix original in January, Trial by Fire, follows a grief-stricken couple's (Abhay Deol and Rajshri Deshpande) struggle for justice as they navigate the loss of their kids. It's based on the real-life 1997 Uphaar Cinema fire in New Delhi. All episodes of Trial by Fire drop on January 13, 2023, on Netflix.

The first month of the new year has a third Netflix original about India. (It's a British production otherwise.) Mumbai Mafia: Police vs The Underworld follows the battle between police and organised crime through the 1990s on the city's streets. Featuring interviews with the officers and “encounter specialists” who were involved in the fight, it paints a picture of D-Company, the Dawood Ibrahim-controlled syndicate that ran drugs, extortion, racketeering, and even terrorism to hold then-Bombay in a bulldog grip. Mumbai Mafia: Police vs The Underworld releases January 6, 2023, on Netflix.

Internationally, we've Christian Bale playing a former police detective in 1830s suburban New York, where he investigates a series of murders with the help of young academy cadet Edgar Allan Poe (Harry Melling). Yes, that's exactly who you're thinking. Based on the 2003 novel of the same name, The Pale Blue Eye streams January 6, 2023, on Netflix. Over in long-form content, Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn returns with Scandi-noir thriller Copenhagen Cowboy — on January 5, 2023 — wherein a woman with supernatural powers (Angela Bundalovic) seeks revenge after a lifetime of being sold as a human good luck charm.

There are also a couple of major returning series in January 2023. The hit Israeli thriller Fauda returns for its fourth season, with Doron Kavillio (Lior Raz) grappling with the death of a colleague as he navigates a new deadly mission into Lebanon. After premiering in Israel back in July, Fauda season 4 arrives in its entirety on Netflix January 20, 2023. Meanwhile, the brave trio return in the second season of Vikings: Valhalla that picks up briefly after the tragic fall of Kattegat. On the run in Scandinavia, they must survive outside of their fjords comfort zone. All episodes of Vikings: Valhalla season 2 are out January 12, 2023, on Netflix.

The start of the new year has a few interesting documentaries in store as well. The makers of Formula 1: Drive to Survive are taking to the world of tennis with Break Point, where they travel alongside some of the world's most talented tennis players — from Casper Rudd to Nick Kyrgios, and from Iga Swiatek to Stefanos Tsitsipas — as they compete across Grand Slams. The likes of Maria Sharapova, Andy Roddick, and John McEnroe will offer insights into life on tour. Split into halves, the 10-episode Break Point premieres January 13, 2023, with the second half due in June 2023.

At the end of the month, actress-model Pamela Anderson shares the story of her rise to fame, rocky romances, and infamous sex tape scandal in her own words, through personal video and diaries. The intimate and investigative two-hour Pamela, a love story is out January 31, 2023, on Netflix. And lastly, Emmy-winner Joe Berlinger follows the rise and fall of financier Bernie Madoff, who orchestrated one of the biggest Ponzi schemes in Wall Street history worth $64 billion (about Rs. 5,29,065 crore). The limited series Madoff: The Monster of Wall Street is available January 4, 2023, on Netflix.
