The Witcher

The Witcher season 2 premiered on Netflix on Dec. 17, and it’s currently the biggest show in the world right now. If you’re a big fan of fantasy, we highly recommend checking out The Witcher this Christmas.

There are 16 episodes of the series to stream on Netflix. And, it should be noted that these are not thin episodes. Each one rolls in around 50-plus minutes and some are more than an hour.

The Witcher season 3 is already in the works on Netflix.

Cobra Kai

You’re running out of time to get on the Cobra Kai train before season 4 premieres on Netflix. The new season of the Netflix original hits Netflix on New Year’s Eve 2021. Luckily, these are quick episodes and you can easily binge-watch all three seasons in less than a week.

Cobra Kai tells the story of the infamous dojo from The Karate Kid movies after it’s reopened by Johnny Lawrence, Daniel LaRusso’s nemesis, 30 years later. The old wounds are still there, and it’s personal between Daniel and Johnny again.

The Christmas Chronicles

The Christmas Chronicles is probably the best Netflix original Christmas movie for the whole family to date. I really enjoy Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey and Klaus, but it’s clear everyone likes The Christmas Chronicles movies as they are consistently on the Netflix Top 10 during the holiday season.

In the movies, Kurt Russell stars as Santa, who is interrupted by two nosy kids on Christmas Eve, which causes his sleigh to make a crash landing in Chicago. The trio comes together to try to save Christmas.

Check out The Christmas Chronicles and The Christmas Chronicles 2 on Netflix!
