New on Netflix Canada: December Celebrates With A Very Murray Christmas

Entertainment / Movies / TV

It’s that time again for our monthly “New on Netflix Canada” series. Being the festive season, it’s no surprise to see a Christmas special as one of the new additions, along with a few new live specials and movies. Read on to see what’s new, and what’s leaving, this month on Netflix Canada — and don’t forget to check out our “New on Netflix US” installment!

Netflix Originals

‘Tis the season, and one of the Netflix Originals you can join Bill Murray as he rounds up an all-star cast for an evening of music, comedy and good cheer in this homage to classic holiday variety shows in A Very Murray Christmas coming on December 4th.

Another Netflix Original sees the first of four Adam Sandler/Netflix movies coming to the streaming service. The Ridiculous 6 stars Adam Sandler, Terry Crews, and Taylor Lautner in this ridiculous tale in which Tommy “White Knife” Stockburn goes on an adventure-filled journey across the Old West with his five brothers after his long-lost outlaw father returns.

Rounding out the Netflix Originals for December are a trio of live comedy specials which include I’m Brent Morin (December 1st), Trailer Park Boys: Drunk, High and Unemployed Live in Austin (December 9th), and Mike Epps: Don’t Take It Personal (December 18th). Also available on December 18th are two new TV series: F is For Family from comic Bill Burr in which you can follow the Murphy family back to the 1970s, a time when you could smack your kid, smoke inside and bring a gun to the airport, and Making a Murderer — the real-life thriller filmed over ten years which follows a DNA exoneree who, while exposing police corruption, becomes a suspect in a grisly new crime.

Netflix Original Series For Kids

Three TV series for kids are getting new seasons this month as well. Starting off on December 11th, kids can catch up with season 2 of everyone’s favourite swashbuckling cat with The Adventures of Puss in Boots. Later in the month, the first season of Glitter Force (December 18th), and Dawn of the Croods (December 24th) will join the lineup.
