Netflix is ready to deck the halls with its new lineup of holiday themed content. The streamer is proving it’s “Here for the Holidays,” by releasing its upcoming schedule for all the series, films, and holiday specials slated through the end of the year, with some available as early as Nov. 1.
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.
Here’s a complete snapshot of everything coming this season:
