#3: Avatar: The Last Airbender – February

Avatar: The Last Airbender is one of the most anticipated Netflix releases in 2024. This movie borrows inspiration from the popular Nickelodeon animated series, where the young Avatar strives to learn four elements: Earth, Air, Water, and Fire. Mastering these elements will help him defeat the Fire Nation and restore world balance. 

Here is the plot: Water, Air, Earth, and Fire are four nations that once lived harmoniously. However, this changed when the terrifying Fire Nation attacked and defeated the Air Nomads. Just as the world is losing hope, Aang, a promising Air Nomad, and his friends have a plan. They’ll also need help from many characters in this action-packed movie.

#4: 3 Body Problem – March

3 Body Problem is an adventure drama series officially launching on Netflix in March 2024. This sci-fi series was announced in September 2020 and is based on the original novel by Liu Cixin. In June 2023, Netflix released a title trailer, generating excitement and compliments. 

This series features Ye Wenjia, an astrophysicist who joins the military after witnessing her beloved father murdered brutally during the Cultural Revolution in China. The military posts her to a remote radar base where they send signals to space to contact aliens. A superior alien civilization captures the signal and is on the brink of invading Earth.

#5: Joker: Folie À Deux – October

Do you love watching pulse-pounding Joker movies and playing games like Play’n GO’s Fire Joker? Next year, another thrilling Joker title, Joker: Folie À Deux, will hit the screens. Although the release date is still far off, this movie will be worth the wait thanks to its star-studded cast and a high production budget that doubles its predecessor’s. 

This Warner Bros movie continues the story of the Clown Prince of Crime origin. In the original 2019 release, Arthur Prince, a clown for hire, is constantly bullied in his dream to become a comedian. However, he starts murdering those who don’t believe in his acting qualities, influencing a movement and becoming the Clown Prince of Crime. The post-production is still underway!

#6: The Night Agent Season 2 – 2024 or 2025

The first season of Netflix’s The Night Agent was successful after debuting on the streaming platform in March 2023. But even before everyone could get a taste of this action thriller, it’s rumoured that the second season with ten episodes is already underway. The Night Agent Season 2 will launch at the tail end of 2024 or early 2025. 

This series draws inspiration from the original novel written by Matthew Quirk. It’s about an FBI agent (Peter Sutherland) who burns the midnight oil to find the traitor planning to attack the US government. But because no book inspires the second production, we should expect new twists from the screenwriting team. This installment will move away from the DC, where the first season took place. 

#7: Dead Boy Detectives – Unknown Date 2024

While Netflix has not announced the official release date of Dead Boy Detectives, the company released a teaser in November 2023. This suggests that the much-anticipated debut could be in 2024. This nail-biting supernatural sleuthing show is based on the comic series by Neil Gaiman. 

You’ll meet Edwin Payne and Charles Rowland, highly skilled operatives in this series. But beware that these best friends aren’t your usual detectives because they are ghosts. Although dead, they are selected to stay on Earth and use their powers to do good. Their investigations lead them to spooky quests where they meet bloody monsters and evil witches.

#8: Good Grief – January

Let’s wrap up this list with another January title. Although the initial release date is December 29, 2023, Good Grief will hit Netflix on January 5, 2024. This film features Mark (Dan Levy), the spoiled son of the Rose family. Although most fans know him for his comic persona, Levy lets loose his sober side in this movie. 

Here is what the film is about: Mark is happy to live under the shadows of his husband, Oliver (Luke Evans). But when Oliver dies, Mark and his best friends, Thomas and Sophie, head to Paris for some soul searching. However, this trip reveals some hard-nosed realities they must face.
