Now that you’ve binge-watched season four of The Crown, all of Dawson’s Creek and Shawn Mendes: In Wonder, Netflix has some new arrivals for you to watch while cozied up by the fireplace with a cup of hot cocoa to finish off the year. Since the theaters aren’t exactly filling up as they normally would, most of the movies are being released on Netflix. Especially now, people are relying on this platform to keep themselves busy and waste some time and, of course, distract themselves from all the current chaos….so to end the year strong: Netflix is releasing new originals, classic comfort movies and the newest seasons to your favorite shows!
