Here's Everything Leaving & Coming To Netflix In December 2020

It's officially the holiday season.

Updated: 

November has come and gone, which means it's time to dive headfirst into all of the holiday shows and movies that are currently streaming (if you haven't already started, that is). Netflix recently released a brand new lineup for December, and the titles will definitely help you get in the holiday spirit. From Season 3 of The Great British Baking Show: Holidays to Netflix originals like A Trash Truck Christmas and How To Ruin Christmas: The Wedding, there's an abundance of holiday content to choose from as we approach Christmas in quarantine.

Not big on the holidays? Selena: The Series, a show that follows the inspiring journey of the late Selena Quintanilla as she navigates the highs and lows of her career as a Tejano music superstar, may offer the nostalgia you need. And if you're desperate for a break from all of the Christmas music you'll be hearing this month, stream The Prom on Dec. 11; the musical, which stars Meryl Streep and Nicole Kidman, follows a group of self-obsessed theater stars who throw their support behind a small town high school student as she attends prom with her girlfriend.

You also won't want to miss the late Chadwick Boseman's final role in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom on Dec. 18. The film, based on August Wilson's 1982 play, chronicles the tensions between trailblazing blues singer Ma Rainey (Viola Davis), her ambitious horn player Levee (Boseman), and the white management determined to control her music. Check out other can't-miss titles — as well as the full list of what's coming and leaving — below.

What We're Sad To See Go
The Office: Seasons 1-9 — Leaving Dec. 31
NBC

The most dreaded moment is almost here. All nine seasons of The Office, the beloved NBC workplace comedy, will leave Netflix on Dec. 31 in order to make its grand debut on Peacock. Catch up on Michael Scott and co.'s Dunder Mifflin shenanigans before its departure.

Pride & Prejudice (2005) — Leaving Dec. 31

The Witches (1990)Leaving Dec. 31

Anjelica Huston stars as the Grand High Witch in this adaptation of the Roald Dahl novel about a young boy who encounters a group of witches while on vacation with his grandmother. There's a new version on HBO Max with Anne Hathaway, but who can deny this classic?

Gossip Girl: Seasons 1-6 — Leaving Dec. 31
Warner Bros. TV

Spotted: Gossip Girl's departure from Netflix. Revisit the original series about prep school students on Manhattan's Upper East Side as they deal with scandal and heartbreak. It'll be a nice chaotic primer ahead of the HBO Max reboot.
