What’s Coming to (and Leaving) Netflix in December 2021

And speaking of fantasy, Netflix is also debuting another season of Emily in Paris (Dec. 22), which I have not seen but which I have come to understand is the hate-watch that got a lot of you through the early part of the pandemic. And hey, the pandemic is…still not over, so you could probably use somewhere to channel your hate.

The year-end film slate is also worth highlighting, if only for two Oscar hopefuls. Don’t Look Up stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Lawrence as two astronomers who discover a large asteroid hurtling toward Earth and are increasingly disturbed when no one seems to take the threat seriously, which is funny because in real life governments always take such existential threats seriously and never totally drop the ball when billions of lives are at stake. Also the cast includes basically every Oscar winner writer/director Adam McKay (The Big Short) has ever met, which is pretty neat.

Far more low-key, if no less buzzy or star-packed, is The Power of Dog (Dec. 1), a grim-looking new western from New Zealand director Jane Campion (The Piano) that stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Kirsten Dunst, Jesse Plemons, and lots more familiar faces.

If you want to watch a movie that might actually make you feel good, I can highly recommend Hilda and the Mountain King (Dec. 30), a feature-length continuation of the animated series Hilda, which is simply one of the most delightful pieces of children’s entertainment I have ever tried to force my kids to appreciate on as many levels as I do.

All that, plus a bunch of new comedy specials (including the first from national treasure Nicole Byer), more of the Great British Baking Show, and a bunch more holiday content, including a Shaun the Sheep Christmas special. I’m never going outside again!

Here’s everything else coming to Netflix at the end of 2021.
