Television Series Arriving on Netflix, Amazon and Hulu in January 2016

New original and off-network series titles for the month of January will appear on the streaming video services Netflix, Amazon Prime and Hulu.

Leading up to its 11th season premiere this month on the FXX network, the entire tenth season of “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” will be available on both Netflix and Hulu on Tuesday, Jan. 5. The long-running comedy stars Danny DeVito, Charlie Day, Glenn Howerton, Kaitlin Olson and its show creator Rob McElhenney.

Also on Netflix on Jan. 5 will be the fourth season of comedy “New Girl.” The series returns for its fifth season on Fox this month — its premiere delayed til midseason to accommodate the pregnancy of star Zooey Deschanel (as well as trying to boost its recent sagging ratings).

Another critically-acclaimed but ratings-challenged comedy, NBC’s “Parks and Recreation” has its entire seventh and final season on Netflix available on January 13.

Four editions of the comedy-documentary “Chelsea Does”, Chelsea Handler’s first project since the conclusion of her E! talk show “Chelsea Lately” debuts on Netflix on Saturday, Jan. 23, a day after it is featured at the Sundance Film Festival.

Another notable original program to premiere this month exclusively on streaming is Amazon’s thriller “Mad Dogs” beginning Friday, Jan. 22. Based on the recent British series, the American version stars Michael Imperioli, Billy Zane, Steve Zahn, and Romany Malco as middle-aged friends who reunite to celebrate the retirement of a fellow friend/police officer (played by Ben Chaplin, who also briefly starred in the UK original) but then all become entangled in a web of crime and corruption. Shawn Ryan (“The Shield”, “The Unit”) is one of the show’s executive producers.

    • I’m very shocked they don’t show them. We get to see Live plus 3 and Live plus 7 for the broadcast guys but I’d be very curious to see how these shows on digital platforms actually do perform.

      • I wonder what the measurement would be. Would it just be number of times viewed? Netflix et al could not know how many people are watching an episode at any time unless they start some kind of diary process, right?
