What's coming to Netflix US and UK in December 2021? That's the question on everyone's lips now that we're entering the ninth (where does the time go?!) month of the year. 

The streaming service has been our saving grace this year, helping us through the pandemic by acting as the ultimate incentive thanks to its roster of top-quality content. So far, we've had everything from hit reality TV shows Bling Empire and classic movies, to a fresh batch of Netflix originals added to the platform's catalog (including one of our current faves, Who Killed Sara?)—all of which have been the perfect escapism from the slowly healing chaos of the wold. 

But while there are some classic shows and movies leaving Netflix, what can we expect this month? 

Here's a definitive list of what's new on Netflix this month, including the highlights...

Coming to Netflix in December 2021: the highlights

Don’t Look Up, December 24

The star-studded film we've all been waiting for this year is finally dropping on Netflix this month starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence, Johan Hill, Timothee Chalamet and Ariana Grande to name a few. It follows two low-level astronomers who must go on a giant media tour to warn mankind of an approaching comet that will destroy planet Earth—our kind of plot! 

Emily In Paris season 2, December 22

At last, we'll be reunited with Emily Cooper as she continues her Parisian adventure and by the looks of things, this time, she's living a true traveler's dream. The sophomore installment of the series will see the young social media maverick spending time in Paris, of course, but she'll also be making her way into neighboring French cities. Expect more glamour, romance (with the return of Lucas Bravo as Gabriel) and marketing mayhem.
