What's Coming And Going From Netflix Canada In December 2020

Somehow, there are even more Christmas movies on the way.

If you thought November’s haul of Christmas movies was enough, you’re wrong. Netflix’s December offerings include a fresh catalogue, including a brand-new combination of the words “Christmas” and “Prince” in a movie title.

Some other highlight from the next month: Chadwick Boseman’s final film appearance in “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” Shonda Rhimes’ period drama “Bridgerton,” new seasons of “Big Mouth” and “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina,” a David Fincher-directed movie about “Citizen Kate” screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz, and “The Midnight Sun,” directed by George Clooney.
