Netflix New Releases: December 2015


The last month of Q4 and 2015 is nearly here with December reminding us of another monthly coverage of all the new releases, including movies, TV series, and documentaries, coming to your favorite streaming service, Netflix.

Let’s keep Santa Claus, jingle bells, family and friends aside, for Netflix subscribers the best Christmas present from Netflix would be some good movies and TV shows that are worth watching. There was not much charm in November as somewhat disappointing contents hit the streaming service, so here’s hoping we’ll see something better in December.

The Netflix new releases listed below are exclusively for US territories; we’ll come up with separate lists for UK, Canada, and Australia subscribers as well at the end of this month. Without further ado, let’s look at what’s new on Netflix US in December 2015, beginning with the highlights.

TV Highlights:

Netflix New Releases: December 2015 - Hart of Dixie

Season 4 of Hart of Dixie is finally coming to Netflix — on December 15th. This comedy-romance-drama show follows a New Yorker and new doctor Zoe Hart who accepts an offer as a general medical practitioner from a stranger, Dr. Harley Wilkes, after having left half the practice to her in his last will. The first three seasons are already available on Netflix US.

Another major highlight on the ‘TV’ side is Season 6 of Parenthood which is coming to Netflix US on December 30th. Set in Berkeley California, this critically acclaimed comedy-drama chronicles the lives and tragedies of the Braverman family tree which comprises of an older couple, their four children, and their families.

Netflix New Releases: December 2015 - F is for Family

Netflix is bringing two new animated kids series, Care Bears and Cousins and F is For Family as its original content on December 18th. The first one was originally scheduled for early 2016 release, but seems Netflix brought the series forward and is making it available in all regions except Germany and France.

F is For Family, created by stand-up comedian Bill Burr, is set in the 1970’s and takes us back to a time when you could smoke inside, smack your kids, not wear a seat belt, and even bring a gun to the airport. The plot follows an average looking Murphy family and focuses on the aspect of complaining about political correctness.

Another ‘TV’ side new release is the second season of The Adventures of Puss in Boots, an animated TV series coming to Netflix on December 11th. Starring the character Puss in Boots from the DreamWorks Animation Shrek franchise, the storyline follows the future adventures of the swashbuckling cat.

Movie Highlights:

Netflix New Releases: December 2015 - A Very Murray Christmas

Netflix was surprisingly a step ahead of big TV networks to grab a major content in December. This is the first Netflix is bringing an original movie as a Christmas special new release. Available in Ultra HD 4K on December 4th, A Very Murray Christmas is a musical comedy film written by Bill Murray, Sofia Coppola, and Mitch Glazer. Here’s the trailer:

Slammed for being racist and sexist and getting a lot of divided opinions even before being released is the new Adam Sandler movie The Ridiculous 6. This isn’t actually a highlight for December, but given the fact that it’s western, set in the Wild West, and ‘somewhat’ unusual for Sandler, it’ll be interesting to see how people will receive this new Netflix original movie.
