The new year means new shows and movies on Netflix.

It also means that some of your favourites will also be leaving the streaming platform.

But first things first: some of the new content coming to Netflix include beloved early aughts movies like cheerleading comedy Bring It On (along with its sequels) and How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days.

Plus you'll be able to stream classics like Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory, The Godfather and the Lethal Weapon series.

On top of that, you'll be able to watch new seasons of Grace and Frankie, Lovesick and Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.

Netflix will also premiere original movies like The Polka King (starring Jack Black, Jenny Slate and Jason Schwartzman) and A Futile and Stupid Gesture (starring Will Forte as National Lampoon co-founder Doug Kenney).

Unfortunately you'll have to say goodbye to some good ones though, with Love Actually, Miss Congeniality and every season of Lost.

Don't get too sad though: the list of new things to watch is quite long.
