New On Netflix TBD December 2021

Decoupled -- NETFLIX SERIES

We’ve only scratched the service in what we’ve highlighted here, there’s so much more worth checking out in December on Netflix, from a new Shaun the Sheep movie to entertaining library content like Rian Johnson’s time-travel drama Looper.

And before the month ends make sure you check out everything that’s leaving Netflix in November so you can get a final viewing in of a favorite before it’s gone.
