What to watch on Netflix this weekend, December 19 and 20

We only have one more weekend until Christmas! Things will most likely look different this holiday season since the pandemic has us socially distancing and hosting virtual meet-ups instead of in person.

Perhaps you have gifts that need to be wrapped this weekend and will need some entertainment to keep you motivated.

Below, we shared five good Netflix shows to watch this weekend (Dec. 19-20).

5 good Netflix shows to watch

1. Tiny Pretty Things

This new series, Tiny Pretty Things, is another book adaptation for Netflix. The YA novel series of the same name is written by Sona Charaipotra and Dhonielle Clayton.

This series is a teen dramatic thriller focused on a group of young dancers at the elite  Archer School of Ballet in Chicago.  After the star student’s mysterious death, the newcomer who takes her place joins a world of lies and betrayal.  Tiny Pretty Things follows a group of young adults willing to do anything to make their own dreams realities.

2. Manhunt Deadly Games

This mini-series is based on the true story of Richard Jewell, who was falsely accused of planting a bomb at the Olympic Games in 1996. Manhunt: Deadly Games tells the story of Jewell and all he went through as a prime suspect in a crime he didn’t commit.

It is a true-crime drama series, and if you liked Manhunt: Unabomber, this would be another series you will enjoy.

The series already sits on the Netflix top 10 TV shows list.

3. The Ripper

The Ripper is a crime drama docuseries that chronicles the life of a serial killer known as  The Yorkshire Ripper. He terrorized a community in northern England between 1975 and 1980.

Peter Sutcliffe murdered 13 women and assaulted many others during his crime spree. It took authorities years to apprehend him.

This series breaks down the mistakes made by law enforcement in their hunt for Sutcliffe. The case has been closed for 40, and Sutcliffe died in November, but it still makes for a fascinating story.

4. Jeopardy

More episodes of Jeopardy have been released this week on Netflix. Recently released special episodes include Champion Runs V and VI, as well as Teacher’s Tournament, College Tournament, and Tournament of Champions.

This puts Jeopardy back on Netflix’s top ten list for this weekend.

5. Locke and Key

Did you hear the news that Locke and Key has already been renewed for a third season when the second season has yet to be released? It’s true! And, it just happened.

Now is a great time to watch or rewatch the series to tide you over until season 2 is released.
