Netflix Announces 2020 Winter Holiday Lineup

Not one flake of snow has yet fallen, but that’s not going to stop Netflix from revealing what’s in store for the 2020 Christmas Holiday season.

Please do not adjust the calendar settings on your Internet-connected device. No, you have not fallen into some kind of transcendental wormhole in which time is but a mere suggestion. That headline is correct. It is October 7 and Netflix has announced its 2020 Holiday season lineup. 

For starters: shame on you, Netflix. Let the spooky season breathe. But given that this will be a most unusual holiday season due to the coronavirus pandemic, I suppose we can give the streaming giant a pass this time for wanting to get a head start on some Christmas cheer. 

Just as Netflix’s Halloween offerings were dubbed “Netflix and Chills”, so too does the holiday season get its own Netflix-friendly branding. Get ready for “Netflix: Here for the Holidays.” And here is a helpful graphic with some of the major titles.

Netflix’s holiday season headliner is certainly The Christmas Chronicles: Part Two, premiering on Nov. 25. In this sequel, Kurt Russell will reprise his role as zaddy Santa Claus with real life wife Goldie Hawn portraying Mrs. Claus. Santa must deal with his old friend Kate Pierce, now a cynical teen, and a new mischievous force that threatens to cancel Christmas for good.

But the Christmas cheer begins much earlier than late November this time around. Holidate gets things rolling as early as Oct. 28 and the beginning of November sees the arrival of new series Dash & Lily (Nov. 10), the Forest Whitaker starring film Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey (Nov. 13), and German Christmas miniseries Überweihnachten

December will feature The Holiday Movies That Made Us (Dec. 1), Captain Underpants Mega Blissmas (Dec. 4), and The Great British Baking Show: Holidays Season 3 (Dec. 4). Here is the full list of Netflix: Here for the Holidays.
