There will be no shortage of Netflix movies coming out in 2023, but there might be a shortage of sleep for viewers trying to keep up with the barrage of new content.

Like every year for the last half-decade or so, Netflix is leading the streaming charge for new, original movies. In 2022, the streamer released over 80 new original movies—more than 1 new movie a week—and we have a feeling that 2023 is going to top that. This year, Netflix is going to have a little bit of everything, movie-wise. Acclaimed filmmakers like David Fincher and Wes Anderson are coming to the streamer, with their films The Killer and The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar. Popular Netflix originals like Extraction and Murder Mystery are expected to see sequels hit the streaming service next year. And everyone’s favorite stop-motion chick flick, Chicken Run, is due for a long-awaited follow-up, Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget.

In an effort to help you sift through the noise, we’ve highlighted some of the biggest and most exciting Netflix movies coming out in 2023 below. When possible, we’ve included the release, cast, director, and official logline for the movies.

That said, the majority of the Netflix movies coming out in 2023 don’t yet have an official release date. Stay tuned, because we’re sure we’ll have more news to share on that front soon.

Netflix has not yet released an official logline for this upcoming comic adaption, but here is the official synopsis of the original graphic novel by Matz via Amazon: “A man solitary and cold, methodical and unencumbered by scruples or regrets, the killer waits in the shadows, watching for his next target. And yet the longer he waits, the more he thinks he’s losing his mind, if not his cool. A brutal, bloody and stylish noir story of a professional assassin lost in a world without a moral compass, this is a case study of a man alone, armed to the teeth and slowly losing his mind.”
