Your Complete Guide to Netflix's 2018 Christmas Programming
It includes the classics and some new surprises.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Sure, Thanksgiving is still around the corner, but in the meantime everyone's getting prepared for the real action this holiday season. In a new video, Netflix officially announced its full slate of Christmas-themed movie and TV programming for this holiday season. In addition to licensing holiday classics for its library and producing original Christmas movies of its own, the streaming platform is also putting out special holiday episodes of some of its recent series-including "Chilling Adventures of Sabrina."
Just a few short weeks after viewers were introduced to the new incarnation of Sabrina Spellman (Kiernan Shipka), she and her devilish aunts will return in "Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: A Midwinter's Tale" on Dec. 13. The week before will see the arrival of "Neo Yokio: Pink Christmas", a follow-up to the first season of the Jaden Smith-starring, Ezra Koenig-produced anime that hit the streaming service last year. Season 4 of "Fuller House" is also being folded under the umbrella of Christmas content since the first episode will be holiday-themed and titled "Oh My Santa."
On top of that, Netflix is following up the success of last year's original movie "A Christmas Prince" with several new Christmas originals. On top of a sequel to "A Christmas Prince", Netflix will also release "The Princess Switch" (another holiday-themed royal rom-com) and "The Christmas Chronicles" (starring Kurt Russell as Santa) over the next few weeks so viewers are primed for December.
