Netflix New Releases Gift Holiday Cheer for December

Netflix new releases

Well, that was quick. November is in the books. We have sworn off turkey and bought tons of stuff we don’t need. Damn you Black Friday. And here we are hurtling towards Christmas. Lucky for us, a whole slate of Netflix new releases are unwrapping early.

Before we hit the new content, anyone looking for a fantastic show on Netflix needs to watch The Last Kingdom. If you’re a Vikings fan, you’ll thank me. And it’s up there with Peaky Blinders (another Netflix must) on intros for shows.

While November saw a host of Netflix originals, there isn’t a massive marquee title. However, the streaming service is adding some serious firepower to its content catalog. Kicking off December 1 will be Hellboy, The Big Lebowski, and 8 Mile. Hey, who doesn’t enjoy b-rabbit at the shelter?

Following closely on December 4th is District 9. Amazing film and if you haven’t seen it, put it on the list.

What about Christmas day? Netflix is pulling out the big guns with Avengers: Infinity War. Suck at cooking or generally tired of your crazy relatives? Season 11 of Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown also drops. Both are perfect escapes from the madness of Christmas.

It wouldn’t be a Netflix new releases schedule without a holiday-themed video:
