Here’s Everything New on Netflix in December 2022

4 minute read

Few things in life are certain: coffee, taxes, and the glut of cheesy Christmas movies that arrives on Netflix each December. And this year is no exception: Scrooge: A Christmas Carol is an animated retelling of Charles Dickens’ timeless classic. In The Boss Baby: Christmas Bonus, the Boss Baby accidentally swaps places with one of Santa’s elves. I Believe in Santa begs the question: What happens when your dream partner turns out to be obsessed with Christmas?

International offerings—and there plenty of them—lean toward deadpan and quirky, with a dash of heartfelt and feel-good. In Delivery by Christmas (Polish), a courier has to race to return Christmas presents to their intended recipients. I Hate Christmas (Italian) sees a single nurse frantically search for a partner to bring home for the holidays. And How to Ruin Christmas: The Baby Shower (South African) picks back up with the Sello and Twala families amidst the holiday chaos.

Here’s everything coming to Netflix in December 2022—and what’s leaving.
