What's Coming To Netflix In December 2020? Get Ready For Cozy Nights In

It has been a banner year for Netflix, as the coronavirus pandemic has put streaming front and center of the entertainment business. The service came into quarantine with a massive hit in Tiger King, and it currently has its biggest miniseries to date with The Queen's Gambit. So, how will Netflix round out this year? Check out what's coming to Netflix in December 2020 to find out.

There are several hotly anticipated arrivals for the final month of 2020, but the headliner, hands down, is Ma Rainey's Black Bottom. With theaters still shuttered and many Oscar contenders moving to 2021 and beyond, there's been a lot of chatter about how this could be Netflix's year to take it all at the Academy Awards. While the streamer has released a few contenders already (including Da 5 Bloods and The Trial of the Chicago 7), Ma Rainey is the streamer's ace in the hole, featuring powerhouse performances by Viola Davis and the late Chadwick Boseman.

Early reviews have been rapturous about the film, and Boseman specifically. (Rotten Tomatoes currently has the film rated at 100% fresh with 51 reviews logged.) So, it's no surprise the trailer for Netflix's December offerings leads with footage from Ma Rainey, and viewers should expect a massive push when the film lands on streaming come Dec. 18.

But that's only the beginning of Netflix's offerings this month.
