The Netflix, Prime and Disney+ TV shows new for December

Streaming services are one of the best ways to settle down over Christmas.

What could be better than putting your feet up and letting your eyes feast on the new series or movie that everyone is talking about?

Streamed shows have the power to capture people's imagination and take social media by storm. Just look at Squid Game earlier this year or the release of Making a Murderer way back in 2015.

Whatever the show, new releases usually bring something for everyone and popular streaming platforms like Netflix, Disney+ and Amazon Prime Video will have a wide selection for you to choose from.

So what are the top choices coming up at the end of this year?


If you are a fan of reality TV, then Twentysomethings: Austin may just have you covered.

A group of twentysomethings are moved into a big house together in Austin, Texas. They have never met before and it is a huge test to see if they will become friends.

It is sure to be an interesting dynamic to watch play out in front of us, though anyone with experience of living with strangers may just be recalling some experiences in horror.
