We're nearing the festive period, which means you'll need to plan your viewing. Thankfully with Netflix you can watch on your phone, tablet, laptop or other TV in the house, which is handy if someone's hogging the main set. Though with all this on, we imagine they'll be keen to watch Netflix...

The Crown series 2

The lush royal drama is back for a second series, with Claire Foy starring as Elizabeth II and Matt Smith as the Duke of Edinburgh. A new era begins, but Queen Elizabeth is struggling to uphold longstanding traditions while navigating an ever-changing world. All 10 episodes are available to stream from 8th December. And with another royal wedding in the offing, and the Queen's speech just around the corner, now is as good a time as any to get streaming.


Will Smith stars in one of Netflix's most hotly-anticipated films so far. It's a buddy cop movie set in an alternate world where magical creatures live among us, and it sees Smith and his orc partner (played by Joel Edgarton) become embroiled in a turf battle. It's available from 22nd December.

Riverdale series 2

Jason Blossom's murder may have revealed the town of Riverdale's sinister underbelly, but in series two, things are about to get even murkier. In fact, the shooting of Fred Andrews threatens to plunge the entire town into complete darkness. The series is based on characters by Archie Comics, and stars KJ Api, Lili Reinhart and Camila Mendes.

Trollhunters series 2

The second series of the DreamWorks animation starts on 15th December. Created by Guillermo del Toro, it follows 15-year-old Jim Lake Jr, who finds a mystical amulet that grants him the mantle of Trollhunter. The first series was awarded six Daytime Emmys, which is more than any other TV show, live or animated, that year. It's also been lauded as the most successful Netflix original show aimed at children.
