Every Holiday Movie and Series Available on Netflix in 2021




, , , ,

The Ho Ho Ho-lidays are officially here! We know that because Netflix has already started rolling out its slate of new Original seasonal content, and there’s so much of it that you better get started now if you want to stream it all before Christmas.

Viewers can get excited for new releases like The Princess Switch 3, A Boy Called Christmas, Season 4 of The Great British Baking Show: Holidays, and many more.

As Netflix puts it, the service will release Eight kids titles a-kidding, Five rom-coms a-loving, Four international comedies a-laughing, Three competition series a-competing, Two musicals a-singing, and One adventure series with a touch of horror to scare you into the new year. By that last one, they of course mean Elves, the Danish thriller/drama about a family who moves to a remote island controlled by folklore and dark magic.
