After kicking off the month with a strong push of fresh content, Netflix is slowing things down a bit as it heads into a new December weekend. While past weekends have seen dozens of new titles made available for bingeing, this weekend, the streaming library will only be stocked with a total of five new additions, all of which are Netflix originals.
Although this weekend's additions may be on the lighter side of things, they join a long list of titles that were added to the library throughout the week. That list can be found by clicking here. The additions also join dozens of others that have been made throughout the month of December, many of those being titles on Netflix's October-debuted holiday lineup. The lineup includes dozens of original films and series perfect to get even the grumpiest of grinches into the holiday spirit.
Keep scrolling to see everything coming to Netflix this weekend, and don't forget to check out all of the titles that will be leaving before the end of the month.
