After tiring themselves out with Thanksgiving Day feasts and some Black Friday shopping, Netflix subscribers will be able to kick back and relax to a weekend full of bingeing. During the post-Thanksgiving weekend, the streaming giant will be stocking seven new additions in its ever-expanding content catalog.
This weekend's new titles, all of which are Netflix originals, will kick off on Friday with several new titles from the streamer's Here for the Holidays streaming lineup, with both A Castle for Christmas and Elves, a darker holiday story, set to premiere. For those not quite ready to partake in some holiday film binges, Netflix is providing plenty of other options. This weekend will also see the debut of a new Netflix original competition series, a new comedy, and even a new addition to Netflix's growing true crime library.
Netflix offers three subscription plans – the basic plan ($8.99 per month), the standard plan ($13.99 per month), and the premium plan ($17.99 per month). The streamer also recently debuted a "Netflix Free Section," allowing non-subscribers to watch a selection of the streamer's most beloved originals at no cost. 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.
'A Castle For Christmas'
Netflix will kick off the first of its weekend's additions with a title from its 2021 Here for the Holidays lineup. On Friday, Nov. 26, A Castle for Christmas will debut. A Netflix original film, the new holiday movie follows Sophie Brown, a famed author who travels hoping to buy a small castle of her own, though her plans run a bit amiss when Duke Myles, the owner, is hesitant to sell to a foreigner. As the two butt heads in an effort to reach a compromise, the beginning sparks of romance start to fly. A Castle for Christmas stars Brooke Shields and Cary Elwes.prevnext
'School of Chocolate'
Chocolate lovers will want to press play on Netflix's newest competition series, School of Chocolate. Set to premiere on Friday, the series sees eight top pastry and chocolate professionals enrolling in the School of Chocolate, where they will put their skills to the test in an effort to be named "Best in Class." Throughout the eight-episode competition, the pros will be taught by world-renowned chocolatier, Amaury Guichon, with only one student able to walk away with a prize package that includes a career-changing opportunity.prevnext
Netflix will be doubling down with its holiday content this weekend, though Elves, set to debut on Sunday, Nov. 28, offers a darker twist on its holiday titles. From Jannik Tai Mosholt and Christian Potalivo, creators of The Rain, Elves follows a family of four, who, in an effort to reconnect over Christmas, four travel to a remote island in the Danish archipelago. They soon realize the archipelago isn't as idyllic as it had first seemed, as the island is controlled by members of a fiercely religious community who live in balance with elves, "real, monstrous beings that inspired the folklore and myths we all know." When the family's youngest finds and brings home a baby elf, she inadvertently disrupts the balance. Elves stars Ann Eleonora Jørgensen, Rasmus Hammerich, Peder Thomas Pedersen and Lila Nobel.prevnext
