Here’s Everything New on Netflix in December 2020—And What’s Leaving

6 minute read

If you’re looking to get into the holiday spirit this season, look no further than the confectionary creations of the third installment of The Great British Baking Show: Holidays, a festive version of the beloved baking series, that will debut on Dec. 4.

This month also sees the return of many Netflix original series, including season 4 of the puberty-powered raunchy comedy Big Mouth and the second volume of Song Exploder, which will feature behind-the-scenes looks at the creative processes of artists like Dua Lipa and The Killers.

A plethora of movie options are also hitting the streaming platform this month, including The Prom, a Netflix original based on the 2018 Broadway musical of the same name. Directed by Ryan Murphy, the project boasts a star-studded cast that includes Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman and Kerry Washington. It releases on Dec. 11. Another stage production gets the film treatment with Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, an August Wilson play-turned-feature drama that stars Viola Davis and the late Chadwick Boseman in one of his final onscreen roles.

Here’s everything new on Netflix this month—and everything set to leave the streaming platform.
