Are you missing your favorite Netflix show?

We know — as hard as you try, it’s so hard not to binge watch! Then we’re left with a year of waiting, and that’s so dang stressful. Why does it feel like we've been waiting two years for the release of "Grace and Frankie?"

Here we are, to the rescue, to help alleviate your stress.

Here are the latest seasons of some of your favorite Netflix originals being adding this month:

Jan. 1: "A Series of Unfortunate Events," season 3

Jan. 11: "Friends From College," season 2

Jan. 18: "Grace and Frankie," season 5

             

"The World's Most Extraordinary Homes," season 2, part B

Jan. 25: "Medici: Masters of Florence," season 2

"Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt," season 4, part 2

Even though Netflix hasn't announced the release date of "The Crown," season 3, the streaming site has confirmed, "It's official: another season is coming." So inconspicuous, Netflix! We need more! The word on the street is that it could be early 2019. Plus, the good news (we hope) is that seasons 3 and 4 are said to be filmed back-to-back, so once the next season is released, we may not have long to wait for another to follow.
