New Releases on Netflix: December 22nd, 2019

· Updated:

Private Practice – Picture: ABC

Happy Sunday and with just 3 more sleeps until Santa, you may be wondering if Netflix is dropping some early Christmas presents. We’re happy to report that they are. Here’s a rundown of the four new releases on Netflix today plus we’ll take a look at the past week for new titles on Netflix too.

Just some quick housekeeping. We’ve previewed the next seven days on Netflix including the release of You and Lost in Space plus don’t forget to check out all the new Christmas movies you can find on Netflix too.

Private Practice (Seasons 1-6)

Genre: Comedy, Drama, Romance
Cast: Kate Walsh, Paul Adelstein, KaDee Strickland, Taye Diggs

Our first highlight is a big one. It sees the complete return of the ABC spinoff series to Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice.

All six seasons return to Netflix again which solely follows the personal and professional life of neonatal surgeon, Addison Montgomery.

Why Netflix has picked this up is a little baffling given ABC keeps most of its content away from Netflix. Our best guess is that Shonda Rhimes connection.

Back of the Net (2019)

Genre: Family
Director: Louise Alston
Cast: Sofia Wylie, Christopher Kirby, Melissa Bonne, Trae Robin
Runtime: 98 min

This family adventure movie is about a young girl traveling across the world to Australia to attend a science trip on a boat. That all goes to hell once she turns up at a soccer academy.

Reviews are generally mixed for this one but if you love movies like Bend it Like Beckham or your pre-teen dramas, this is one to add to your list.

Jacob’s Ladder (2019)

Genre: Drama, Horror, Mystery, Thriller
Director: David M. Rosenthal
Cast: Guy Burnet, Michael Ealy, Joseph Sikora, Jesse Williams
Runtime: 89 min

Our third highlight of today is Jacob’s Ladder. Sadly, it’s not the 1990s Jacob’s Ladder but the more recent remake of the Time Robbins thriller which was met by abysmal reviews by the critics.

It’s about a brother returning home from war with the world changing around him. It’s hard to recommend this one unless you enjoy watching car crashes.
