The Witcher season 2 is now on Netflix – Picture: Netflix

Although 9 new releases hit Netflix US today the majority of them are companion titles for the big new release of the day in the form of The Witcher season 2. That doesn’t mean there’s nothing else new to watch so let’s dive into what’s new and what’s trending on Netflix for December 17th, 2021.

Looking ahead to the weekend, we’ve got the new Netflix Original Norweigen thriller What Happened in Olso coming on Sunday. We’re also going to see the 2013 Josh Brolin movie Oldboy hit Netflix US tomorrow.

On the removals front, today is your last chance to watch Guest House and People Just Do Nothing. Atlas Shrugged: Part II (2012) departs on Sunday.

Now let’s get into what’s new on Netflix for weekend!


Best New Movies And TV Shows for December 17th

The Witcher (Season 2)

Genre: Action, Adventure, Fantasy
Director: Tomek Baginski
Cast: Henry Cavill, Anna Shaffer, Freya Allan
Writer: Lauren Schmidt
Runtime: 60 min

Naturally, The Witcher is the big new Netflix Original release of the day with the second season now streaming in full.

The second season builds on the first season in every conceivable way. In season 2, you’ll follow Ciri and Geralt who united with each other at the end of season 1 and Yennefer who has been captured.

Alongside the release of the main series, Netflix added a bunch of companion pieces including:

  • The Witcher Season One Recap: From the Beginning
  • The Witcher: Fireplace
  • The Witcher Bestiary Season 1, Part 1
  • The Witcher Bestiary Season 1, Part 2
  • The Characters of the Continent
  • Making The Witcher: Season 2

Fast & Furious Spy Racers (Season 6)

Genre: Animation, Action, Crime
Cast: Tyler Posey, Charlet Takahashi Chung, Jorge Diaz
Writer: Bret Haaland, Tim Hedrick
Runtime: 23 min

It’s been an odd trek for Fast & Furious’s animated adventure on Netflix. While reviews started off poorly, the show has really gained momentum over the months with today marking the release of the sixth and as we now know, final season.

Here’s what you can expect:

“In the epic final season, the Spy Racers meet their match in a mysterious villain who always seems to be one step ahead!”


Decoupled (Season 1)

Genre: Comedy, Drama
Cast: Raaj Vishwakarma, Dilnaz Irani, Atul Kumar
Writer: Manu Joseph
Runtime: 28 mins

Originating out of India is this new comedy series that follows a misanthropic writer and his startup-founder wife who are juggling their impending divorce with the absurdities and annoyances of life in their affluent world.

Early user reviews have been strong for this new comedy-drama so perhaps Decoupled can buck Netflix’s rather underwhelming Hindi TV slate with this one. Let’s wait and see.
