Here’s what’s coming to (and leaving from) Netflix in December

With December comes the holiday season, and if you’re looking for a particularly cloying bingewatch to go with all that egg nog, Netflix has you covered. The streaming service will drop the second season of Fuller House December 9. There are also some other options if you don’t want to descend into treacly nostalgia, including new specials from Reggie Watts and Gabriel Iglesias. If you’re looking for some indie options, two movies that debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this year will be available to stream: Blue Jay, an intimate drama with Mark Duplass and Sarah Paulson, and Barry, a look at the life of college-age Barack Obama. And on December 23, you can catch the premiere of Guillermo Del Toro’s Trollhunters, with voicework from future presidential candidate Ron Perlman.


Meanwhile, Netflix is bidding farewell to the likes of 50 First Dates, American Beauty, and the entirety of Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. Should you need a break from Gilmore Girls, feel free to have a Sorbo-themed Thanksgiving binge.
