Here's What's New On Netflix In December

While TV series are about to go into winter hiatus with the holidays quickly approaching, Netflix has announced its list of releases for the month of December.

Among the highlights this month are “The Wolf of Wall Street,” horror movie “Oculus,” and the first season of critically acclaimed BBC series “Broadchurch.”

Netflix is also releasing its new $US90 million series, “Marco Polo,” along with its Nick Offerman comedy special “Nick Offerman: American Ham.”

Here’s what you should check out on Netflix in December:


“American Horror Story: Coven” (available 12/6)

The third season of FX’s wildly popular series adds Emma Roberts among a group of backstabbing witches.

“Broadchurch” (available 12/12)

The first season of the hit BBC series follows the aftermath of the murder of a young boy in a small town. While Fox just introduced a remake of the series featuring original star David Tennant called “Gracepoint” to less than stellar ratings, the original eight-episode series is a must-watch.

“Marco Polo” (available 12/12)

Netflix is betting $US90 million on its new original series which looks like the streaming service’s answer to HBO’s “Game of Thrones.” The series executive producer, Dan Minahan, actually worked on “Thrones.” The series will follow the explorer in 13th century China as he comes toe to toe with Kublai Khan.

“Nick Offerman: American Ham” (available 12/12)

If you’re waiting for the final season of “Parks and Rec” to arrive on NBC, Offerman’s new Netflix comedy special should hold you over. Netflix says the special will feature the comedian’s “woodworking skills and tips for prosperity.”


“Almost Famous”
Kate Hudson and Jason Lee star in the Oscar winner where a high school student (Billy Crudup) follows around a rock band on tour to write a story for Rolling Stone.

“American Beauty”

The five-time Oscar-winning picture follows a father (Kevin Spacey) who becomes infatuated with his daughter’s friend.

“Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues”

If you skipped out on seeing the return of Ron Burgundy and his dog Baxter to the big screen last year, now’s your chance to catch up.
