Netflix December 2019 new releases – new movies, TV shows and originals

December sees the long-awaited debut of fantasy series The Witcher and new films from Michael Bay and Noah Baumbach

Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia in Netflix's The Witcher

Ever since Game of Thrones drew to a close earlier in 2019, there’s been a lot of discussion as to what will be the next major fantasy drama – and Netflix hopes the answer to that question is The Witcher, which kicks off this month.


Marriage Story, the second Netflix film from acclaimed writer/director Noah Baumbach also debuts on the platform in December, as does Michael Bay blockbuster 6 Underground and The Two Popes, which stars Anthony Hopkins and Jonathan Pryce.

This month also sees the second series of successful original shows You and Lost in Space and a slew of new Christmas content – including the third film in The Christmas Prince saga and a festive special with Jack Whitehall and his father.
