As the number of shows and movies available to stream in Australia continues to grow at an impressive rate, it can be tough to keep up with all the new additions to each streaming service each month.
We’ve all come to anticipate a new stable of Netflix Originals releases each month, but figuring out which shows they are and when exactly they become available isn’t so easy. And what about the large number licensed shows and films that are made available to stream, if only for a limited time?
In an effort to keep you informed of the best shows and movies that are in the process of being added to Netflix, we’ll be bringing you an updated list of what you can expect on the service on a monthly basis.
Not only that, we’ll also be singling out the biggest releases, as well as a number of quality TV shows and films which we believe deserve your Netflixing time.
So get ready to kick off the month with an epic binge – here’s what’s new on Netflix in December 2019. Check out Netflix’s newest offerings in the video below!
TV shows highlights for December 2019
The Witcher: Season 1 (20/12/2019)
One of the most anticipated new shows arriving on Netflix this year is the first live-action adaptation of The Witcher, starring Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia. Said to be based more closely on Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski’s books rather than the games that made the series internationally famous, the show still nails the look and feel of CD Projekt Red’s beloved RPGs. With a huge budget, massive sets and terrific VFX, Netflix’s The Witcher could be the streaming service’s own Game of Thrones if it plays its cards right.
Lost in Space 2 (24/12/2019)
Taking a page out of the Stranger Things playbook, the Robinson family’s latest adventure will officially be called Lost in Space 2, cementing its intention as a proper sequel. That means we can expect Lost in Space 2 to significantly raise the stakes and deliver an even bigger scope this time around. Following the events of the first season, the Robinson family is stranded on an ocean planet without their Robot. Now, they must work together to find their robotic buddy and get back to the other colonists. Of course, Dr. Smith (Parker Posey) is still with them, so we imagine things won’t go smoothly.
Movies highlights for December 2019
Marriage Story (06/12/2019)
From acclaimed filmmaker Noah Baumbach (The Squid and the Whale) comes a truly unique love story about a marriage coming apart and a family staying together. Starring Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver, the Netflix Original film Marriage Story has earned rave reviews and intense Oscar buzz for all parties involved. Though the film’s subject sounds emotionally painful, Baumbach deftly applies a delicate touch that results in a work of true beauty.
6 Underground (13/12/2019)
Superstar Ryan Reynolds has teamed up with mega-director Michael Bay for what’s sure to be Netflix’s biggest action blockbuster to date! 6 Underground follows a group of elite soldiers with shady pasts who come together to carry out important operations for the benefit of mankind. Being a Michael Bay joint, we expect countless explosions and jokes in poor taste – and we wouldn’t have it any other way!
