Henry Cavill as 'The Witcher'
Netflix / YouTube

The colder months have arrived and ’tis officially the season to Netflix and chill. For all the homebodies aiming to cuddle up and stay in all winter, Netflix has got you covered. Once again, there’s a heap of new content hitting the streaming platform this holiday season, promising this December 2019 is going to be a good one.

Leading the charge of new arrivals is the highly anticipated fantasy series The Witcher, an adaptation of the original bestselling book series and video game by the same name.

The streamer’s highly-anticipated original sci-fi series V Wars will also make its debut. December also marks the return of some subscriber favorites such as You and Ultraviolet, which are both returning for a second season.

As for movies, Netflix finally gives us access to the last of its Oscar contenders with the Scarlett Johansson-led Marriage Story, Anthony Hopkins’ The Two Popes and the Michael Bay-directed action flick 6 Underground. And it’s not really Christmas without a catalogue of soppy Christmas-themed movies and shows. Of course Netflix delivers with A Christmas Prince: The Royal BabyA Cinderella Story: Christmas Wish, A Family Reunion Christmas and many more.

As with each month, it’s also time to say goodbye to numerous shows and movies, so you may want to hurry up and stream the likes of the Rocky franchise, Thor: Ragnarok and Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown seasons 7 through 11.
