Five new additions to watch on Netflix this December

December might be the one bringing us Christmas, but it seems like Netflix is bringing us the goods too! Being a busy month in every way, Netflix is bringing its own sleigh of new content. Here’s 5 new series and film additions to catch on Netflix this December.

  1. Dark – Season 1

Dark follows the story of a missing 15 year old boy, and the incredible supernatural search to bring him back, as history seems to repeat itself. While the past influences the future, Dark aims to show us that the future can influence the past. Check out the trailer for Dark below, and catch it exclusively on Netflix as it premieres 1 December.

2. Room

Room has been the winner of awards, responsible for commercial and critical praise, and rightly so. Room follows the story of Joy and Jack, a woman and a boy being held captive in a single room, which Jack believes is the entire world as he has never left it. Upon escaping, Joy and Jack must learn to adapt to the new world, as the hardest challenges may still lie ahed of them. Room comes to Netflix 1 December.

3. It’s a Wonderful Life

Ok, before you say anything, stop right there. It’s a Wonderful Life may be one of the best, if not the best Christmas movies of all time. We follow James Stewart as George Bailey, whose suicide attempt on Christmas Eve brings about his guardian angel, who takes him back in time on a journey that will change his life forever. In the spirit of Christmas, it’s quite hard to pass this classic up. Catch it on Netflix 8 December.

4. The Crown – Season 2

The Crown is back, as we continue to follow the trials and tribulations of Queen Elizabeth II, as she continues to battle threats to the monarchy, which may prove to be one of the greatest challenges for her yet. Catch the second season 8 December, exclusively on Netflix.

5. Bright

Will Smith as an L.A. cop with an orc for a partner? Yes please! As crazy as it sounds, Bright takes place in an alternate present-day universe in which 2 police officers, a human and orc must pair up in order to stop a deadly turf war. Catch it exclusively on Netflix 22 December.
