New on Netflix: All the Movies and TV Coming in December

The holiday season is upon us, and what better way to avoid that chill in the air and pass those idle hours in between enormous family meals than by delving into the multitude of film and TV titles on Netflix? The streamer is adding quite a bit in the final month of 2019—we’ll walk you through it all below.

In the feature film department, Netflix’s big December addition is an awards contender with acclaim for days: Marriage Story (Dec. 6), the critically beloved new film from Oscar-nominated writer-director Noah Baumbach. His second drama for Netflix after 2017’s The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected), Baumbach’s latest is described as an “incisive and compassionate look at a marriage coming apart and a family staying together,” with Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson starring as the couple falling out of love, and Laura Dern, Alan Alda and Ray Liotta in supporting roles. Other incoming films of note include unnerving A24 horror-thriller It Comes at Night (Dec. 9), Fernando Meirelles’ (City of God) true events-inspired papal power transfer drama The Two Popes (Dec. 20), big-budget Michael Bay/Ryan Reynolds blockbuster 6 Underground (Dec. 13), Spike Lee’s Denzel Washington-starring 1992 biopic Malcolm X (Dec. 1), so-bad-it’s-good franchise entry A Christmas Prince: The Royal Baby (Dec. 5), 2012 bootlegger crime-drama Lawless (Dec. 29) and Tom Hooper’s Oscar-winning drama The Danish Girl (Dec. 16), among others. And in a nice sort of yin and yang, December brings a handful of Bond films to Netflix, including Die Another Day, GoldenEye, Tomorrow Never Dies and The World Is Not Enough (Dec. 31), as well as the 007-spoofing Austin Powers movies: International Man of Mystery, The Spy Who Shagged Me and Goldmember (Dec. 1).

As for TV and comedy, there’s plenty on the way in December, such as Netflix’s much-anticipated answer to HBO’s Game of Thrones: The Witcher (Dec. 20), the streamer’s new adaptation of Andrzej Sapkowski’s fantasy series of the same name. Henry Cavill stars as the titular witcher, Geralt of Rivia, a mutated monster hunter struggling to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts. Netflix has already renewed the show for a second season, so these are just the first adventures of Geralt, Yennefer (Anya Chalotra) and Ciri (Freya Allan) on which we’ll be invited along. Other TV additions of note include the second seasons of Penn Badgley-starring psychological thriller You (Dec. 26) and prestige sci-fi reboot Lost in Space (Dec. 24), one-and-done George R.R. Martin adaptation Nightflyers (Dec. 2), Season 2 of Jordan Peele-co-created, Tracy Morgan-starring comedy The Last O.G. (Dec. 4), the new six-episode sketch-comedy series from executive producer Kenya Barris (Black-ish), Astronomy Club: The Sketch Show (Dec. 6), Season 4 of Syfy fantasy series The Magicians (Dec. 16), true-crime docuseries The Confession Killer (Dec. 6) and Season 5 of the inexplicably popular Fuller House (Dec. 6). And in comedy, we have Tiffany Haddish: Black Mitzvah (Dec. 3), Michelle Wolf: Joke Show (Dec. 10), Ronny Chieng: Asian Comedian Destroys America! (Dec. 17) and John Mulaney & The Sack Lunch Bunch (Dec. 24) to look forward to.

December is also your last chance to catch a number of worthwhile Netflix titles, so be warned: Departing programming includes both seasons of Planet Earth (Dec. 2), Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok (Dec. 4), Seasons 7-11 of Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown (Dec. 25), Star Wars: Episode VIII: The Last Jedi (Dec. 25), all 11 seasons of Frasier (Dec. 31), the first five Rocky films (Dec. 31), a pair of Quentin Tarantino masterworks inPulp Fiction and Jackie Brown (Dec. 31), Steven Spielberg’s Best Picture-winning Schindler’s List (Dec. 31), Jim Henson’s recently adapted The Dark Crystal (Dec. 31) and alt-comedy cult-classic Wet Hot American Summer (Dec. 31).
