Here’s everything coming to Netflix in December 2020 — and what’s leaving

by Warrior2

Netflix Inc. is heading into the holidays with a slate full of highly anticipated series, Oscar-hopeful movies and a ton more Christmas movies and specials.

At the top of the list is “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” (Dec. 18), the late Chadwick Boseman’s last film and what is expected to be a major Oscar contender. Based on the play by August Wilson, Viola Davis stars as the iconic blues singer Ma Rainey, with Boseman playing her band’s trumpeter.

Another Oscar contender is expected to be David Fincher’s “MANK” (Dec. 4), a black-and-white biopic of “Citizen Kane’s” alcoholic screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz. There’s also the George Clooney post-apocalyptic drama “The Midnight Sky” (Dec. 23), and Ryan Murphy’s adaptation of the Broadway hit “The Prom” (Dec. 11), starring Meryl Streep and James Corden.

Netflix NFLX, +0.43% is also launching the long-awaited “Selena: The Series” (Dec. 4), about the life of the late pop star Selena Quintanilla; the fourth and final season of “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” (Dec. 31); Season 4 of the foul-mouthed adolescent animated comedy “Big Mouth” (Dec. 4); and “Bridgerton” (Dec. 25), a romantic drama series from Shondaland set in Regency-era London.

And if November didn’t bring enough holiday specials, there are plenty more to come, including “The Holiday Movies That Made Us” (Dec. 1), “Home for Christmas 2” (Dec. 18) and the third season of “The Great British Baking Show: Holidays” (Dec. 3).
