A new month means a new crop of licensed and original movies and shows arriving on Netflix, and saying farewell to many others. We present the full list of titles for the upcoming month below, but first, let's scan for highlights. If you want more viewing options, check out our rankings of the best Netflix Original shows of 2020 and best Netflix Original movies of 2020, as well as our lists of great movies currently streaming on Netflix and binge-worthy TV shows currently streaming on Netflix.

Now that it's the end of the year, Netflix is releasing a handful of star-studded and awards season-primed movies it's been sitting on. MankDavid Fincher's period piece about screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz's rush to finish writing the Hollywood classic Citizen Kane, arrives on the streaming service in December, as does Ma Rainey's Black Bottom, an adaptation of the August Wilson play starring Viola Davis and the late Chadwick Boseman. Those two might be headed for the Oscars, but if you're looking for something a little more in the key of musical fun, you'll be able to watch a movie adaptation of Broadway hit The Prom, starring Meryl Streep, next month as well. Plus, just ahead of Christmas, George Clooney's sci-fi epic Midnight Sky becomes available, and you'll soon be able to binge Selena: The Series and Shondaland's Bridgerton. Here's everything you'll be watching as you get cozy ahead of the holidays.
