The holiday season is known for being the most wonderful time of the year, not only for spending time with family, but for relaxing on the comfort of your couch. Thankfully, Netflix's holiday movies and TV show lineup has plenty of new content to offer that's full of yuletide fun, including a new installment of A Christmas Prince — this time with a royal baby on the way to boot.
Over the last few years, Netflix has become a hub for must-see holiday films, starting with A Christmas Prince back in 2017, which became an instant obsession among viewers thanks to its fun, entertaining, and yes, super cheesy, made-for-TV holiday movie vibe. Then came the sequel, A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding, in 2018 along with a few additional titles like The Holiday Calendar and The Princess Switch.
This year, the streaming service is taking its love of the holiday season one step further by delivering a new bundle of streaming goodies that would make even the likes of Santa Claus proud. Netflix announced on Oct. 15 that fans can expect a series of original films and TV seasons, including A Christmas Prince: The Royal Baby and a new season of Nailed It! Holiday! So check out all the incredible options featured in Netflix's holiday movies and TV show lineup, and plan your lounging accordingly.
