New films and TV on Netflix this December

‘Tis the season for new films and series!

Christmas is approaching and we’re so ready to cosy up and watch the many Christmas films already on Netflix! The streaming platform has certainly been drip-feeding us the goods over the last few weeks, but their latest announcement may have streamers everywhere wondering one thing…where is the rest of the Christmas content we were hoping for?!

This week, they took to their social media to announce some of the movies being added to the platform in December. Whilst the list is yet to include any additional Christmas watches, we’re certainly hoping that they’re planning on saving some to drop nearer the big day!

In the meantime, they haven’t held back on providing us with some newbies and absolute classics to enjoy. Here’s some of the movies that will be available to watch in December:

  • Mank (2020)
  • Christmas Crossfire (2020)
  • The Prom (2020)
  • Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom (2020)
  • The Midnight Sky (2020)
  • Ocean’s 8 (2018)
  • Mary, Queen of Scots (2018)
  • The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society (2018)
  • The Prestige (2006)
  • Seven (1995)
  • Shaun of the Dead (2004)
  • Pride & Prejudice (2005)
  • Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977)

  • Galaxy Quest (1999)
  • Despicable Me (2010)

As far as new releases go, we’re thrilled to finally get a taste of David Fincher’s newest hyped up movie Mank. Shot entirely in black and white, the film is a biography of screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz’s tumultuous development of Orson Welles’ Citizen Kane. It features a pretty exciting cast too, including Gary Oldman (The Dark Knight), Amanda Seyfried (Mamma Mia!) and Lily Collins (Love, Rosie). The Midnight Sky is also at the top of our watchlist! George Clooney directs and stars in the post-apocalyptic sci-fi drama about a lonely scientist in the Arctic and a mysterious global catastrophe.

With additions like The Prestige and Seven, Netflix have catered for the mystery lovers too, whilst Bridget Jones’s Diary and Despicable Me are some of our favourite light-hearted watches for over the festive period.

Netflix hasn’t forgot to add some new TV shows for us to enjoy either. Here’s some of the TV shows arriving in December:

  • Bridgerton
  • Selena: The Series
  • Detention
  • Big Mouth S4
  • The Ripper
  • Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Pt 4
  • How to Get Away With Murder Season 6
  • Rick and Morty Season 4 Pt 2
  • The Legend of Korra
  • Song Exploder Vol 2
  • Tiny Pretty Things
  • Home For Christmas Season 2

Fans of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina can rest easy knowing that season 4 is heading their way (even with the bittersweet news that this will in fact be the final season). Fear not though, if you’re looking for something new, The Ripper limited series will delve into the Yorkshire Ripper murders, so that’s another true crime documentary to add to your watchlist!

With so much choice, what will you pick first? Happy viewing!
