What’s New on Netflix in December? These 13 Movies & TV Shows Are Great for Binge-Watching
As the weather outside gets increasingly more frightful, the most delightful way to spend your evening is watching the new movies and TV shows streaming on Netflix in December. Although there aren't many holiday movies popping up yet, there are some great classics to fully embrace your nostalgic side (Romy and Michele's High School Reunion and Troop Beverly Hills , which is also streaming on Amazon Prime) and new favorites (American Horror Story: Coven) to binge-watch. There's actually a little bit of everything to watch in the chilly month, including the drinking-game-friendly Sharknado 2: The Second One and one where you can just watch people drink a lot, a.k.a. The Wolf of Wall Street.
Even though you may want to just take the month off of work to watch everything on Netflix, I've narrowed down 13 choices to tackle first. Since most TV shows are on hiatus for at least a month or two, this is the ideal time to watch all the movies you can handle. And for the record, Gilmore Girls is still streaming in full, so if none of these appeal to you, Lorelai and Rory will always be there for you.
A Knight's Tale
This fun medieval film stars the late Heath Ledger in one of his early roles. It hits Netflix on Dec. 1.
If you haven't seen this classic starring Kate Hudson and Patrick Fugit, watch immediately. Well, when it starts streaming on Dec. 1.
To make this feel weird, just watch it and House of Cards back to back. It starts streaming on Dec. 1.
