New On Netflix: TBD December 2022

As usual, there’s a selection of titles that Netflix doesn’t have dates for just yet. If any of these December 2022 titles interest you, you’ll want to check the app to keep track of when the following selections actually do hit streaming. 

God's Crooked Lines - NETFLIX FILM
The Interest of Love - NETFLIX SERIES
My Next Guest with David Letterman and Volodymyr Zelenskyy - NETFLIX SERIES

December 2022 is a pretty impressive month between the original and catalogue titles coming to Netflix (opens in new tab). In fact, there’s plenty of things we didn’t even get to mention, like the complete 10th and 14th seasons of Big Brother, as well as Netflix’s Michelle Yeoh-led prequel The Witcher: Blood Origin

As usual, keep checking this schedule for updates, as all titles are subject to change and availability. We'll see you back here this time next month, when. January 2023's schedule drops, and the first chapter of Netflix's next year plays out.
