We're now firmly in the home stretch of 2020, but if you weren't already looking forward to turning the page on this year — you know, no reason! — Netflix is giving a glimpse of what subscribers can look forward to in the first month of 2021.

In addition to the new season of Cobra Kai — which is now coming out on Jan. 1, bumped up a week for your New Year's Day binging enjoyment — Netflix's January 2021 slate of originals includes the Nicolas Cage-hosted ode to profanity titled History of Swear Words, which dives into exactly what the title promises. You'll also be able to tune in for buzzy new films like Pieces of a Woman, starring The Crown alum Vanessa Kirby as a woman reeling from the grief of losing her newborn daughter during a home birth, and The White Tiger with Priyanka Chopra Jonas and newcomer Adarsh Gourav, about a driver for a wealthy family in India who uses his wit and ambition to become a successful entrepreneur.

There's also an updated roster of previously released films available on the streaming platform, whether you're looking to revisit old favorites or your New Year's resolutions involve catching up on movies you never got around to seeing. If you want a Leonardo DiCaprio double feature, The Departed and Catch Me If You Can are both arriving on Jan. 1. Or, you can find inspiration to step up your cooking game by watching Julie & Julia, enjoy teen comedies of the '90s (Can't Hardly Wait) and 2000s (17 Again) varieties, or you can prepare yourself for the rumored Sex and the City reboot by watching the first two movies.
