Upcoming TV shows and movies to stream

Written By Tia Bailey, Co-Features/A&E Editor

We are in a new month, which means it’s time for streaming platforms to update their content and add more movies and TV shows for subscribers to stream. Netflix, Hulu, Disney+ and more have released what they are set to stream for December 2020. 


Netflix has already started releasing titles such as ‘E.T. the Extra Terrestrial,” “Jurassic Park,” “50 First Dates” and more, all of which were available to stream on Dec. 1. Another Dec. 1 release was “Peppermint,” a movie starring Jennifer Garner in which she goes to extreme measures to get her revenge after her husband and daughter were murdered.


Some Netflix originals are continuing this month, with the next seasons dropping through December. The fourth season of the cartoon “Big Mouth” was available to stream starting Dec. 4, and is 10 episodes long. “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina,” a spooky adaptation of the comic book by the same name will also have a fourth season to stream at the very end of the year, Dec. 31. 


Like Netflix, Hulu’s busiest day for releases was the first of the month. “50 First Dates” was also released onto Hulu that day, as well as “Charlotte’s Web,” “Euphoria,” “The Hulk” and many more movies and shows. 


A new holiday special, “Dr Seuss’ The Grinch Musical!” will be on Hulu on Wednesday, Dec. 10. The musical will star former “Glee” star Matthew Morrison as The Grinch. 


The fifth season of “The Masked Singer,” the show where a masked celebrity competes in a singing competition, will appear on the platform at the end of the month on Dec. 27. 


Disney+ put out “Sky High,” a fan favorite superhero movie where main character Will Stronghold attempts to live up to his famous parents’ expectations, on Dec. 4 to stream, as well as “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” for the holidays. “The Mandalorian” has continued to stream its second season every week on the platform as well. 


On Friday, Dec. 11, “High School Musical: The Musical: The Holiday Special,” will be available to stream, alongside “Ralph Breaks the Internet” and “Disney Channel’s Epic Holiday Showdown.”


On Christmas Day, the Pixar movie “Soul” will be released onto Disney+. A trailer for the film was released back in March right before everything went into lockdown. “Soul” stars Jamie Foxx and Daveed Diggs, and is about a teacher who loves jazz, and “travels to another realm to help someone find their passion.” 


“Extras – Beyond the Clouds: A Musical Miracle” will also be released on Christmas Day. This will be a 10-part documentary series about the making of the movie “Clouds,” which was also released on Disney+ back in October. The movie made a buzz on social media for making people very emotional. 


This is only a small preview into what these streaming services have in store for the month. They will be releasing these and more for people to enjoy throughout December and will be there to entertain you as the semester ends.
