‘The Witcher’ And ‘Cobra Kai’ Season 4 Tops Our Netflix Picks For December

The holiday season in full swing this December on Netflix. And to denote the festive offerings, the service has added a helpful gift emoji to its monthly list of new releases. But for us, the best gifts have nothing specifically to do toward the holidays. Instead, we’re looking forward to the return of The Witcher. After a long hiatus, Geralt (Henry Cavill) continues his journey with Ciri (Freya Allan) — but to remember why they’re adventuring, it might be handy to rewatch the first season before the second debuts on December 17th.

New Year’s Eve day brings even more gifts with the fourth year of Cobra Kai. Johnny (William Zabka) and Daniel (Ralph Macchio) have finally joined forces to defeat John Kreese (Martin Kove), but will their alliance last long enough to train all of the kids for the All-Valley tournament? Also, will Kreese’s old friend prove as resourceful as he seemed in The Karate Kid: Part III? And for those of us who still enjoy Queer Eye, a new season will also drop on the 31st. The Fab Five move to Austin, Texas, and hopefully prove more successful changing peoples lives than they did in Philadelphia — no, really, that Phily season was really awkward.

Of course, these are just our picks for the upcoming month. Take a look at the full list of everything coming to Netflix (and leaving, for that matter) to find your holiday binge.
