What’s new on Netflix Canada, Crave and Amazon Prime Video in December

A look at what’s scheduled to be added to the catalogues of streaming services Netflix Canada, Crave and Amazon Prime Video in December:

TOP PICKS

Netflix is building on its reputation for Christmas cheer with a sleigh full of new holiday-themed TV episodes. Among the offerings are special editions of the baking show “Nailed It!,” anime series “Neo Yokio” and preschool kids adventure “Super Monsters,” all due on Dec. 7. The platform will deliver a winter solstice episode of “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” and a special for “Prince of Peoria” on Dec. 14.

Christmas is happening on Crave in a big way this month, too, as the service formerly known as CraveTV merges its selection with the cable channel formerly known as The Movie Network. That means plenty more holiday movies are among its offerings, including favourites “Home Alone” and “Home Alone 2: Lost in New York,” “Love Actually” and the less-conventional Christmas gem “Die Hard,” all on Dec. 1. Another oddity, the killer shark comedy “Santa Jaws,” arrives on Dec. 7

Rachel Brosnahan returns to her Golden Globe and Emmy-winning role as a 1950s housewife-turned-comic in “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.” The second season opens with Midge (Brosnahan) forging ahead with her unlikely career — a secret she’s keeping from her family. “Maisel” has been a darling of critics and the TV industry, which handed its creators eight Emmy awards, including ones for supporting actress Alex Borstein, writing, directing and casting. The latest season debuts on Amazon Prime Video on Dec. 5.

Here are the lists of movies and TV shows expected in December. Release dates are subject to change.
