New on Netflix December 2019: Movies, TV Shows and Originals

While the What's new on Disney Plus? list is pretty short, and Apple TV Plus feels decreasingly relevant every week, Netflix is backing up a giant truck of content to your tablets and boxes. The starring entry of this month's lineup is The Witcher show, which stars Henry Cavill as the monster hunting Geralt, who gamers are already more than familiar with (or so I'm told). So, how is Netflix fighting off Disney Plus?

Penn Badgley's returning for a second season of the creepy and addictive You show, and this second batch brings his character Joe to Los Angeles. Oh, and Netflix is getting into the blockbuster action movie business, with Michael Bay's 6 Underground, which stars Ryan Reynolds as a secret agent. Ian Somerhalder (Lost) is starring in V Wars, an adaptation of the vampire-centric comic book.

Of course, Netflix also has new comedy specials, starring John Mulaney, Michelle Wolf, Ronny Chieng and Tiffany Haddish. A certain four-letter word's making a resurgence in the documentary space, with Don't F**k With Cats: Hunting an Internet Killer and Kevin Hart: Don’t F**k This Up.

Here are our top picks for what to watch on Netflix in December.

Check out our best family movies on Netflix if you're looking for films to watch with your family. We've also got a guide to the best shows on Netflix if you're running out of shows to binge.

Note: We’ve bolded the shows and movies that we’re most excited to stream. Plus, we're also including the movies and shows Netflix has still yet to debut and remove this month, and bolding those titles we're trying to remember to watch before they leave. 

Netflix is also bringing in older, licensed movies for the holidays, including all three Austin Powers movies. Sadly, a ton of nature documentaries vanished on Dec. 2, from the Planet Earth, Blue Planet and Frozen Planet franchises. Thor: Ragnarok also departs Netflix, leaving on Dec. 4.
