“It’s the most wonderful time of the year” for both lovers of the holiday season and Netflix enthusiasts, who can be found under cozy blankets during the cold winter months.

And it looks like 2018 will be the best year yet for festive offerings from the streaming service, as many new original films, specials, and holiday-themed seasons of series will drop on the platform throughout the months of November and December.

Below, we’re breaking down Netflix’s holiday lineup, including what’s been released so far this year and the great titles to come.

The Holiday Calendar

Available Now

Starring Kat Graham, Quincy Brown, Ethan Peck, and Ron Cephas Jones, this holiday film, released November 2, involves a “magical” advent calendar. What happens when Abby (Graham) begins to think that the gifts inside predict the future? You’ll have to see for yourself in this decidedly sweet rom-com.

The Princess Switch

Premieres Friday, November 16

Starring two-times the Vanessa Hudgens, The Princess Switch is the good old-fashioned tale of two girls who look exactly alike — one’s a princess, the other a common baker from Chicago. When they cross paths, the princess suggests a little switcheroo so they can experience what the other lives like for a few days. What could go wrong, right? Sam Palladino and Nick Sagar also star in the Christmastime feature.

The Christmas Chronicles

Premieres Thursday, November 22

Kurt Russell takes on the iconic role of Santa Claus in this family film that plays out like a comedy with heart. When a mom leaves her kids home alone on Christmas Eve with nothing but a camera and curiosity, the combination leads to one wacky middle-of-the-night adventure with Santa himself.
