William Zabka reprises his role as Johnny Lawrence in 'Cobra Kai.'

Netflix has unveiled its list of movies and shows that will arrive on the streaming service in January, with the third season of "Cobra Kai" leading the way.

The series is a spinoff of the classic "Karate Kid" films, starring Ralph Macchio and William Zabka reprising their original roles as Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence.

The spinoff, which is set decades after the events that unfolded in the original films, tells the story of Lawrence reopening the Cobra Kai karate dojo and the return of his long-standing rivalry with LaRusso.

The first two seasons of the show were available on YouTube Premium, but Netflix acquired the series earlier this year.

The third season will debut on Jan. 8, and a fourth season has already been ordered.

Another new title seeing its Netflix debut is "Outside The Wire," a new film starring Anthony Mackie.

Set in the future, Mackie plays a top-secret android officer seeking to stop on a nuclear attack in a war zone. The film, which also stars Damson Idris and Michael Kelly, will debut on Netflix on Jan. 15.

The streaming service will also see many shows and movies depart when the calendar flips to 2021. Among those leaving Netflix next month is beloved sitcom "The Office," which will make its long-anticipated move to Peacock, NBCUniversal's streaming platform.

Here are all the titles that will be arriving on Netflix in January.
