Everything Headed to Netflix in December 2021

Henry Cavill poses in Geralt's new armor as Geralt of Rivia in season 2 of 'The Witcher'

Believe it or not, December 2021 is almost here—even while many of us are still trying to process March 2020. As we approach another holiday season, Netflix has announced its December slate.

There are projects like director Jane Campion’s movie Power of the Dog (12/1), much-anticipated popular fare like the second season of The Witcher (12/17), and comforting shows for a cold winter’s night like a new round of The Great British Baking Show: Holidays (12/3). Our picks for properties we’re excited to watch again or gaze upon for the first time are bolded and italicized. We’re including Netflix’s summaries when that description fascinates.

So what is Netflix bringing you this year for being naughty and/or nice? (Scroll all the way down for the “last call” of what will be leaving Netflix this December, too.)
