If you consider December a time to sit and watch holiday-themed shows and movies, then Netflix has you covered. By Christmastime, the streamer will have premiered countless new shows and movies about finding love in the winter months, helping Santa deliver his presents and baking themed treats.

But there are also a variety of other titles to get you through the end of the year.

Some of December’s highlights include “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” the final film of Chadwick Boseman, who died in August; “The Prom,” the star-studded movie adapted from the Broadway musical; “Bridgerton,” a high-society series from Shondaland; “Selena: The Series,” about the tragic life story of Selena Quintanilla; “Mank,” a “Citizen Kane” origin story; and “The Midnight Sky,” which stars George Clooney as a bearded scientist trying to save a team of astronauts.
