It’s two nights until Christmas and we hope you’ve been able to safely travel home or have safe travels if you’ve yet to venture home for the holidays. If you’re ready to switch on Netflix, here’s what’s new and what’s trending for December 23rd, 2022.
There’s a lot to look forward to over the weekend as Netflix has saved some crackers for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, and we’ll be here to recap throughout it all.
Best New Movies and Series on Netflix for December 23rd
Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery (2022)
Genre: Comedy, Crime, Drama
Director: Rian Johnson
Cast: Daniel Craig, Edward Norton, Kate Hudson
Writer: Rian Johnson
Runtime: 139 min / 2h 19m
After receiving a limited theatrical release over the Thanksgiving weekend, you’re now able to watch Knives Out 2 in the comfort of your own living room.
The movie, which Netflix spent a fortune to acquire, sees Benoit recruited to a private island in Greece to look into a murder that is due to take place.
You can re-read our review, which we updated to reflect its Netflix addition, where we gave the MVP award to Janelle Monae and concluded:
“A worthy sequel with a lot of the flair of the original and the amplified production of its new Netflix deal. Rian Johnson can easily do this every few years if he so chooses (and I hope he does).”
The Fabulous (Season 1)
Genre: Comedy, Drama, Romance
Cast: Choi Min-ho, Chae Soo-bin
Runtime: 67 mins / 1h 7m
Although arriving on Netflix slightly delayed, The Fabulous is now streaming.
Here’s what you can expect from the new rom-com series:
“Four best friends chase their dreams in the competitive world of fashion while juggling demanding jobs, romantic dilemmas and wild nights on the town.”
Also, in case you missed it, we rounded up all of our favorite K-dramas of the year here.
Alice in Borderland (Season 2)
Genre: Action, Drama, Mystery
Cast: Kento Yamazaki, Tao Tsuchiya, Nijirô Murakami
Runtime: 50 min
In case you’ve never watched Alice in Borderland before, it’s one of the best international series that Netflix has stocked on its service. Season 2 ups the ante with even more sadistic games for our protagonists to survive.
