A guide to conquering peak TV

Here’s What Is Arriving On And Leaving Netflix In December 2019

The potential Oscar nominees you'll be watching this month.

Netflix is doing things a bit differently this month.

While the company typically releases dozens of classic movies on the first of the month, Netflix has a more tame start-of-month release schedule this time around. Fewer than a dozen movies join the service on Dec. 1, and three of them are Austin Powers movies.

This change might have something to do with the increased competition Netflix now faces to secure distribution rights, as Disney+ and Apple TV+ just launched. More generously, Netflix may have changed things up to give more attention to the multiple Netflix Films debuting this December that could compete at the Academy Awards. Noah Baumbach’s “Marriage Story” debuts on Dec. 6 and will likely earn multiple nominations, including potential acting noms for Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson. “The Two Popes” debuts on Dec. 20, with Anthony Hopkins and Jonathan Pryce also being awards contenders.

A few other notable Originals this month: the sketch show “Astronomy Club” debuts on Dec. 6, the Michael Bay movie “6 Underground” debuts Dec. 13, John Mulaney has a children’s variety special debut on Christmas Eve, and the second season of “You” debuts Dec. 26. You can watch a few of those trailers below.

Movies leaving the service throughout December include “Thor: Ragnarok” and “Star Wars: Episode VIII — The Last Jedi.”
