December means Christmas, and Netflix is putting out an assortment of holiday productions but also some of its biggest productions of the year. So with the coronavirus once again forcing people to stay at home Netflix will help make staying at home not be such a drudge.

Some of the big names to be on the lookout for include Mank by David Fincher, Ryan Murphy’s adaptation of the Broadway hit The Prom and The Midnight Sky George Clooney’s latest adventure in directing. In addition to those titles the streaming service will be showing the Selena: The Series and Chadwick Boseman‘s last film, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.

To get you in the mood for Christmas, Netflix has some new productions this year, the animated Angela’s Christmas Wish, or a look back at classic Christmas favorites The Holidays That made Us and Christmas wouldn’t be complete without a Christmas romance, A California Christmas. Now that our kitchens get more use you can get some holiday ideas on the third season of The Great British Baking Show: Holidays.

Unfortunately, 2020 couldn’t go without giving us one last kick on the way out the door. Netflix will be removing some truly classics with all four Indiana Jones, all seven seasons of The West Wing and all three Back to the Future and The Office, among others.
