It’s the holiday season, which makes it the perfect time for cozying up by the fireplace with some cocoa and watching streaming shows until you fall asleep and wake up wondering where you are. Netflix has tons of new options this week, particularly chock full of original films and shows.
As of December 16, you can watch The Theory of Everything and Springsteen on Broadway. Starting on December 18, Netflix will have the manga-inspired animated series Baki, the Ellen DeGeneres stand-up special Relatable, and part 5 of Terrace House: Opening New Doors. All are listed as Netflix Originals.
Then on December 21, a veritable smorgasboard of new options opens up. Some highlights include the documentary anthology 7 Days Out, the thriller Bird Box, and documentaries Struggle: The Life and Lost Art of Szukalski and Tales by Light. Fans of anime have a few reasons to get excited too: the new series 3Below: Tales of Arcadia, Last Hope Part 2, and Sirius the Jaeger.
This is the last very busy week of the year, since Netflix’s release docket is lighter over the holiday weeks of Christmas and New Year’s. Plus, keep in mind that a few movies and series are leaving this week too–notably Moana, Food Inc., and Spotlight–so you should catch them while you can.
