We're almost through November, which means it's time to once again look at what the fine folks at Netflix have to offer. No pressure for December though, right? It's just a big holiday month where people have a lot of time to watch content with their families. Not to mention, the kids are out of school and people are probably taking vacation time, so it's pretty much business as usual, right? Wrong. December is a month that needs the big guns, and Netflix is sure to roll some premium content for everyone in this last month of 2017. While these titles are subject to availability, here's what's scheduled for Netflix in December.

In the movie department, Netflix has some big additions heading into their catalog in December, with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 being one of the highest profile additions. If you missed it at the theaters this summer, or wanted to see it again without having to own the disc, this is your best bet. Though if you're looking for more TV offerings, then the final seasons of TURN: Washington's Spies and Halt and Catch Fire bring both series to their conclusions, which means if you want to binge their entire stories uninterrupted, you can!
But what would a monthly Netflix update be without buckets of original content that not only justifies your subscription, but also helps you get over the absence of the Netflix shows and movies you've already finished? Dark: Season 1 certainly looks to fill a familiar void, as this German import looks like Stranger Things, only amped up on the creep factor. And if you absolutely need to finish season 3 of Fuller House, the next batch of episodes are only a short wait away. Plus, The Crown makes its second season return, with this current season being the last for Claire Foy's portrayal of Queen Elizabeth, before Olivia Colman takes over the role. And last, but not least, if you're amped to see Will Smith and Joel Edgerton play Bad Boys, except with half the team being an Orc, Bright will be unveiled before the end of the month, just in time for the holidays.
Speaking of which, our last point of focus is, of course, holiday content. Netflix is looking to load up to cater to kids and adults, as they've got quite a bit of festive features to share with us. In particular, the Trolls Holiday Special will be available, in case your kids see it on TV this weekend and absolutely need to keep watching it, as well as Disney's Santa Clause trio. And if your kids love the New Years countdowns for their favorite Netflix original shows, such as Puffin Rock or All Hail King Julien, those will be available a couple days before the big night. 2017 has been a hell of a year for Netflix, so naturally this closing month has us satisfied with this year past, as well as looking forward to an exciting 2018 on the streaming platform.
