December is the start of a holly, jolly month!
And what better way to get into the spirit of the holidays than by streaming some heartwarming and festive Christmas movies on Netflix?
From Netflix to Hallmark to HBO Max — spread the Christmas cheer to those far and near!
Here are the 9 movies to check out in December 2021:
Love Hard – Netflix (Nov 5)
A rom-com where you find yourself rooting for the underdog (despite the cat-fishing) and not the guy that belongs on the present-day version of an Abercrombie bag. Bonus: it stars Nina Dobrev from The Vampire Diaries and Jimmy O. Yang in Silicon Valley.
Next Stop, Christmas – Hallmark Channel (Nov 6)
If you love the Polar Express and Back to the Future, this movie is for you. Christopher Lloyd taps into the conductor role on a time-traveling train as a woman ponders what her life would be like if she married a former boyfriend who went onto become a famous sportscaster and mysteriously finds herself 10 years in the past.
Father Christmas is Back – Netflix (Nov 7)
Four widely different sisters reunite for Christmas in a Yorkshire mansion and find themselves uncovering family secrets when their long lost father shows up for dinner. Elizabeth Hurley, Nathalie Cox, and Kelsey Grammer star in the comedy.
Home Sweet Home Alone – Disney + (Nov 12)
The Princess Switch 3: Romancing the Star – Netflix (Nov 18)
Vanessa Hudgens x3! Royal lookalikes Margaret and Stacy turn to third doppelganger Fiona for help retrieving a stolen priceless Christmas relic.
A Boy Called Christmas – Netflix (Nov 24)
A young boy named Nikolas sets on a quest to find his father and stumbles upon a village of elves called Elfhelm.
8-Bit Christmas – HBO Max (November 25)
Set in suburban Chicago in the 1980s, a 10-year-old sets out to get the ultimate Christmas gift of his generation: a video game system. The comedy stars Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother), Steve Zahn, and Winslow Fegley.
The Christmas Contest – Hallmark Channel (11/28)
It’s the Fuller House reunion you didn’t know you needed! Queen of Christmas Candace Cameron Bure stars in her 11th Hallmark movie as Lara, who faces off against Ben (played by John Brotherton) in a Christmas competition. We can’t wait to see these two back together onscreen considering their chemistry in the Full House spinoff. Maybe we’ll get a surprise appearance from Danny Tanner? We dream.
The Christmas House 2: Deck Those Halls – Hallmark Channel (12/18)
Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren Tapped for ‘Yellowstone’ Prequel ‘1932’
Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren are jumping on the Yellowstone bandwagon.
The actors will star in the drama’s upcoming 1932 prequel, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The Paramount+ series follows the 1883 prequel spinoff and will introduce a new generation of Duttons.
The series has amassed a somewhat cult following, so it makes sense that the forces behind yet another origin story have decided to go big with the names attached to the project.
It’s unclear what role Ford and Mirren have been cast in, but we’re sure it’ll delight considering their impressive acting resumes.
Per the official synopsis provided by the streaming network, the drama will “explore the early 20th century when pandemics, historic drought, the end of Prohibition and the Great Depression all plague the mountain west, and the Duttons who call it home.”
Pandemics, huh. We know a thing or two about that.
News of the new prequel first broke in February.
“Taylor Sheridan has put roots down for the Dutton Family tree that stand strong and tall, with many branches that continue to engage record-breaking audiences,” 1883 executive producer David C. Glasser said via a statement, adding, “It is awe-inspiring to work with Taylor, ViacomCBS and the entire team on this universe.”
It’s unclear if the plan is to have 1932 span multiple seasons or if it will be a one-season limited series like the previous prequel.
All we know is that if you’re not watching Yellowstone and the blossoming franchise, you’re doing it wrong.

‘Legacies’ Canceled at The CW – Season 4 Will be the Last
It’s the end of a franchise on The CW.
The network officially canceled Legacies, a spinoff of The Vampire Diaries and The Originals.
The news, while heartbreaking, might not be unexpected for those who have been following along and awaiting a verdict.
Things didn’t bode well for the series after the network banished the remaining three episodes from their scheduled May airdates to the month of June.
And when The CW canceled Dynasty, Roswell, New Mexico, Charmed, In the Dark, and 4400 earlier today, things looked even bleaker for the Danielle Russell-led series.
Admittedly, Legacies never reached the heights that its predecessors did, and viewership has only been dwindling.
The series will come to an end with its fourth season.
The CW really broke took a jab at so many fandoms today!
Bad news today. But the GOOD news is we have so much love and support from such a wonderful fandom. The biggest of hugs to all of you. Can't wait for you to see how the series ends. We're going out with a bang and you're gonna love it. #Legacies

Deadline reports that the network is currently in talks to be sold to station group Nexstar, which could explain the decision to slice its programing roster in half.
It previously canceled Batwoman and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.
Back in March, the network gave green lights for several of its dramas: All American renewed for season 5, The Flash renewed for season 9, Kung Fu renewed for season 3, Superman & Loisrenewed for season 3, Nancy Drew renewed for season 4, Riverdale renewed for season 7, Walker renewed for season 3.
