New year, new shows

January 2020 is finally here, which means two things: the start of a new decade and brand new content from Netflix. With every new month, the streaming service removes shows and movies to make way for brand new content.

Here is what is coming to Netflix this January:

The Circle

Release date: 1 Jan

A little like Big Brother meets Black Mirror, in this series the contestants, or “players”, all move into an apartment building. However, the contestants will never meet face-to-face during the course of the competition, as they will each live in their own individual apartment. They will communicate solely using their profiles on a specially-designed social media app, giving them the ability to portray themselves in any way they choose.
