is the same future contract always available

So say your trading a futures, like natural gas with 500$ margin, it says January 2018, so in January 2018 the contract expires right? Does a new contract open for natural gas at a 500$ margin in January 2018 to replace the one that just ended or is now natural gas future gone all together? in other words is it like forex where it is always there but just contract ends and new one opens right away or is it like a store and when the contract is gone its gone for good?
