Netflix has a large lineup of movies arriving this December, and one we expect to be popular with the younger audience is the upcoming coming-of-age comedy Mixtape. We have everything you need to know about Mixtape, including the plot, cast, trailer, and Netflix release date.

Mixtape is an upcoming Netflix Original coming-of-age comedy movie directed by Valerie Weiss, and written by Stacey Menear. The feature has been a long time in the making, as it was first confirmed in 2012 that Tom Vaughan would direct. However, throughout the 2010s, the project underwent a series of script rewrites, and with Tom Vaughan dropping out as director, left the movie in limbo for several years before Netflix picked up the rights.

Jim Wedaa and Gil Netter are the executive producers of the movie, with Netter’s own studio Netter Productions handling the production of the entire project.

When is the Netflix release date for Mixtape?

Thanks to the release of the trailer, we can confirm that Mixtape is coming to Netflix on Friday, December 3rd, 2021.
