Happy Holidays! Here’s what Netflix is sending down the chimney.
On the TV front, the streaming service is debuting The Witcher, John Mulaney & The Sack Lunch Bunch, The Confession Killer, and more — alongside the returns of subscriber favorites like You and Ultraviolet.
As for movies, expect the last of Netflix’s Oscar contenders; Marriage Story and The Two Popes will premiere this month, along with 6 Underground. Christmas originals, including A Christmas Prince: The Royal Baby, will start popping up in November and trickle into the start of December.
Director Noah Baumbach presents Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson in this “portrait of a marriage.” A major player in the 2020 Oscar race, Marriage Story chronicles the dissolution of a family and the many complications that come with it.
“This isn’t a narrative about the ups and downs of a romantic relationship, nor is it really about the severance of one,” writes Mashable’s Angie Han.
“Rather, it’s about the lifelong bond that Charlie (Driver) and Nicole (Johansson) will always share through Henry [their son], and the formation of an entirely new dynamic between them, atop the ruins of the old one. It’ll take a lot of tears, and a few laughs, to get there. But Baumbach and his cast make it well worth the journey.”
Marriage Story begins streaming Dec. 6 on Netflix, and is in theaters now.
