January always brings new TV premieres, but they’re even more exciting in 2021 as plenty of series that were postponed due to the pandemic are finally premiering. January 2021 will bring the season premieres of The Rookie, The Bachelor, 9-1-1, and 9-1-1 Lone Star, among others, to Hulu.

The streaming service is also welcoming several new originals, including British import The Sister, about a man with a secret confronted by his past, and the second season of kids’ adventure series Endlings.

On the film side, Hulu original The Ultimate Playlist of Noise, about a teen who embarks on a road trip before life-changing brain surgery that will leave him deaf, debuts mid-month, and the streaming service will welcome a slew of movies of various genres, including the Austin Powers movies and other throwback favorites like Face/Off, Dead Poets Society, Love and Basketball, The Princess Bride, and The Truman Show, plus recent favorites including Hell or High Water and Young Adult.

Read on to find out what else is headed to the streaming service and what’s leaving in January, with a few highlights at the top.


Description: Marcus (Keean Johnson) is an audio-obsessed high school senior who learns he must undergo brain surgery that will render him deaf. He decides to seize control of his fate by recording “The Ultimate Playlist of Noise” – a bucket list of all his favorite sounds. Once he sets out, he meets Wendy (Madeline Brewer) a wildly charming, struggling musician who is trying to escape to New York for her chance at a life-changing opportunity. Together they check off his list as they make their way across the country, until painful revelations force Marcus to face reality and his future without sound.

Premiere Date: January 15

Description: The year is 2041; Julia (Kamaia Fairburn), Johnny (Edison Grant), Tabby (Michela Luci), and Finn (Cale Thomas Ferrin) continue to help their extraterrestrial friend Ling save fantastical endlings. With the aid of their foster father Mr. Leopold (Neil Crone) and animal activist Dr. Abiona Maina (Oyin Oladejo), the group is getting closer to retrieving the remaining “last of its kind” creatures and completing their mission. But when Ling accidentally shows Tabby a vision of their quest failing, the team learns that Ling’s powers don’t just allow the alien access to their pasts but also their futures. This glimpse of what’s to come reveals Infinitum CEO Tresa Hewes (Lisa Ryder), who has been tracking them for her own illusive reasons, capturing Ling and tearing their foster family apart. Together, the group makes the choice to confront the pain of their pasts in order to change their futures and save Ling. This decision to fight fate, kicks off a season of high-octane adventure where four wounded teens must learn to let their hopes, not their hurts, shape the future.

Premiere Date: January 15

Description: How far would you go to keep a secret? One rainy evening, Nathan (Russell Tovey) is surprised by an unwelcome face from the past. Nathan has never been able to forget the worst night of his life: a party that led to the sudden, shocking death of a young woman. Only he and Bob (Bertie Carvel), an eccentric old acquaintance, know what really happened… and they’ve resolved to keep it that way. But years later, Bob appears at Nathan’s door with terrifying news that threatens to tear Nathan’s world apart. Because Nathan has his own secrets now. Secrets that could destroy everything he has desperately fought to build for himself and his family. The four-part series is written by Neil Cross and is inspired by the novel Burial, also written by Neil Cross.
