The holidays have arrived, and with them, the final month of the year’s lineup for streaming on Netflix. It’s been a banner year again for the service, which opened 2021 by announcing Bridgerton had broken streaming records. But by October, the streaming service had broken its own record with the smash hit Squid Game. It’s also released some serious awards contenders like Passing to great popcorn fare, like Red Notice. So how will it close out the year? By tossing a coin to The Witcher for a second season, among other things. Here’s what’s coming to Netflix in December 2021.

December is always a stacked month for streaming, especially those angling to have titles considered for awards season in January. Mix that with end-of-the-year hits timed for the holiday period and seasonal specials to celebrate Christmas and such, and the hours are just packed.

Netflix is bringing a little bit of everything for December. There are Academy Award winner studded films like Don’t Look Up with Jennifer Lawrence and Leonardo DiCaprio. There are holiday movies like Single All The Way and specials including new episodes of The Great British Baking Show: Holidays.

But it’s the Netflix originals that are the real driver this holiday season. December brings the return of four of Netflix’s biggest hits to date: Money Heist, The Witcher, Cobra Kai, and Emily In Paris. There’s so much to watch, you may never leave the couch.

Here is everything coming to Netflix for December 2021. The “🎁” indicates Netflix’s “Here for the Holidays” titles.
