Here’s Everything Coming to Netflix in December 2022

Daniel Craig as Detective Benoit Blanc in Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery

Christmas is coming early this year! Netflix has announced a bunch of new releases for December, and there’s a little something for everyone. No, I don’t mean Sandman Season 2 (you have to be PATIENT), but I do mean knife-related game shows! Anime movies! Daniel Craig’s handsome face! Personally, I think this trio represents humanity in a nutshell. You’re either a person who enjoys watching the trials and tribulations of real non-fiction people, you’re only in it for hot guys, or you just want to be left alone to watch anime. Those are the three basic templates for a human being on this planet. And Netflix has you covered, no matter who you are.

Jack Doyle (they/them) is actually nine choirs of biblically accurate angels in crammed into one pair of $10 overalls. They have been writing articles for nerds on the internet for less than a year now. They really like anime. Like... REALLY like it. Like you know those annoying little kids that will only eat hotdogs and chicken fingers? They're like that... but with anime. It's starting to get sad.
