Finest New Exhibits and Films on Netflix This Week: Virgin River Season 2, Up the Wazoo Christmas Specials
Looking for something new to watch on Netflix? You are in the right place. Here are the best new shows and movies to be released on Netflix between November 27th and December 27th. 3, 2020.
I know Netflix didn’t stick well to the rule of staying away from Christmas until after Thanksgiving, but it turns out that despite the dozen of holiday specials that have already been released over the past few weeks, it has been pretty good this one Rule to be followed. That’s because this week’s new releases, kicking off the day after Thanksgiving, are filled with so many vacation movies, shows, and specials that you’ll have enough of them by November 28th. It’s like the mashed potatoes go in Tupperware, all the rules are out and the dam holding back the contents of the winter vacation is bursting open. After you’ve finished your Thanksgiving meal, prepare for winter specialties.
All titles will be released on Friday November 27th unless otherwise noted. The following was posted on Netflix last week.
If you’re looking for even more hand-picked recommendations, we have plenty. If you want to see the best of what’s coming out on Netflix in November, here are our editors picks for Netflix’s November Releases and All That Comes on Service in the Month.

Virgin River, Season 2
The book-you-buy-at-an-airport-to-live-as-TV show will resume in season two. Cliffhangers have to be dissolved and rebuilt. Mel is returning to Virgin River after a brief retreat in Los Angeles, and when she gets there, of course, Jack is waiting for her … with a whole host of new complications that act as obstacles to their romance, including the pregnant ex. But you didn’t come to Virgin River to see Mel get it easy, did you?
The best new shows to see this fall
The holiday flood
Dance Dreams Hot Chocolate Nutcracker
Produced by Shonda Rhimes, this documentary describes the Debbie Allen Dance Academy’s annual tradition of putting on its own version of the holiday ballet classic The Nutcracker, which features far less symphony orchestras and far more fun.
A Toot Toot Cory Carson Christmas
Even cars deserve to celebrate Christmas. British animated series about a young car gets the Christmas treat. Was Cory naughty (didn’t use blinkers) or nice (allowed others to zip together)? [Trailer]
If you thought silly Christmas movies were only for Americans, then you haven’t seen the harmful influence of American pop culture infect the rest of the world. This German Christmas film follows a musician who is on a terrible streak of bad luck and, oh, I don’t know, maybe finally finds out a few things for him over the holidays. Perhaps! [Trailer]
Sugar Rush: Christmas, Season 2
The baking contest show is back to unwrap another season of Christmas cakes, cookies, and other things that you will regret while eating. [Trailer]
Wonderoos: Vacation Vacation!
Wonderoos is like the Sasquatch of Netflix animation programs for kids. Apparently it’s real, but there aren’t any trailers and it’s hard to find on Netflix (a search will bring you to the home page). Does it really exist? Do I have to put a motion-activated camera somewhere in the forest to find it? [No trailer, no evidence / Sunday, Nov. 29]
Angela’s Christmas wish
In the sequel to the Irish cartoon special, Angela tries to reunite her family when her father has to take a business trip to Australia on vacation. You better start digging, Angela. [Trailer / Tuesday, Dec. 1]
The vacation films that made us
If you can’t decide which vacation movie to watch, just tune in to this vacation movie special and avoid determination, you washed-up flip-flopper. [Trailer / Tuesday, Dec. 1]
Just another Christmas
Apparently countries are still in a phase where it’s cool to say, “Ugh, I don’t care about Christmas!” In this comedy film from Brazil, some guy hates Christmas because it’s his birthday too. He too has amnesia. He’s also stuck in a time warp where it’s Christmas Eve every day. He is also hit in the nuts several times. I wasn’t sold until testicular abuse, but now I’m everything. [Trailer / Wednesday, Dec. 2]
Chico Bon Bon and the Very Berry Holiday
The monkey with the tool belt is preparing for Blunderberry Day, which is not a real holiday. [Trailer / Thursday, Dec. 4]
The best new shows to see this fall
A group of stoned scientists come together and imagine what life is like on other planets by combining a few terrestrial animals into one terrible creature and animating them on a computer. It’s like the No Man’s Sky video game, only you just watch it. [Wednesday, Dec. 2]
An unstable special forces veteran goes to great lengths to save his daughter from kidnappers in this essentially filmed Italian film. [Trailer]
Imagine having a phone that you could use to call someone who lived in the same house as you 20 years ago! You would just return the phone and say it’s broken, right? Not in this Korean film. The two women chat to each other to change history, including what happened with a serial killer. [Trailer]
The Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Women, Season 1
A reality series that it sounds like exactly. [Trailer]
The Uncanny Counter, Season 1
Noodle shop workers use their superpowers to hunt down demons at night in this perfectly normal-sounding Korean drama. [Trailer / Saturday, Nov. 28]
The best new TV shows of 2020 to binge watch
A Filipino film about a successful entrepreneur who restores his relationship with his estranged mother and meets her adopted daughter. [Trailer / Monday, Nov. 30]
A contestant on a singing competition show is trying to win her dad’s love … the judge on the show is! Impressive! You like Polish pop songs better because it’s a Polish movie. [Trailer / Wednesday, Dec. 2]
Do you like french movies Do you like movies about dancing? Do you like sensitive b-boys? If you answered yes to all three questions, take a look at this. [Trailer / Thursday, Dec. 3]
