Netflix is still the leading premium streaming service, with over 200 million worldwide subscribers. It offers thousands of movies and TV shows to binge watch, including its always growing list of original films and series, including Stranger Things, The Witcher, Bridgerton, and many more.

Upcoming Netflix shows and movies

Editor’s note: We’ll regularly update this list of upcoming Netflix shows and movies as new ones and their release dates are announced.

Don’t Look Up

This upcoming Netflix movie is the latest from writer-director Adam McKay (Anchorman, The Big Short, Vice). It has a powerhouse cast, led by Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Lawrence. They play two astronomers who discover a rogue comet that’s just weeks away from colliding with Earth. They attempt to go on a media tour to inform the public of this event, but the press and even the President (Meryl Streep) don’t seem to get that the end of the world is close at hand.

It will debut on Netflix on December 24th.

Stranger Things 4

Netflix’s cult sci-fi show is coming back for a fourth installment. Unfortunately, we don’t know when. We got a cryptic trailer from the streaming service for Stranger Things 4, focusing on the other “gifted” children who lived in the research lab with Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown). Nevertheless, we expect more monsters and mayhem from the new season and we hope to get a release date soon.

Ozark Season 4

The fourth and final season of this acclaimed crime drama is debuting soon on Netflix. At the end of season 3, we saw money launderers Marty and Wendy Byrde make a quick relocation from the Ozarks to Mexico, and it seems like they will become much closer to their new partner in crime, Nelson. The first several episodes of season 4 will debut on January 21st 2022, with the remaining episodes to drop later that same year.

Bridgeton Season 2

Bridgerton became a surprise hit at the end of 2020, and the 19th century historical, and very adult, romantic drama will return for a second season sometime in 2022. As with the first season, you can expect to see rich young men and women of London circling each other in huge mansions before they decide whether or not they’re “the one” for them.

The Umbrella Academy Season 3

One of the biggest upcoming Netflix shows is the third season of the hit indie superhero series The Umbrella Academy. The end of the second season saw the team of unusual superheroes win a battle back in the 1960s to save the world. Unfortunately, when they return to the present, they find that the team’s founder has no memory of them. Even worse, he has another team of superpowered young people, the Sparrow Academy. It looks like things are going to get very interesting indeed.

The Unforgivable

Sandra Bullock, who starred in one of Netflix’s most popular original movies, Bird Box, returns to the service with this much more serious drama. She plays a woman who has just got out of prison, and into a world that doesn’t seem to want to help her. The only goal she now has is to find and reconnect with her younger sister. You can watch this movie on Netflix on December 10th.


The creators of the acclaimed horror series Dark will return to Netflix in 2022 with this highly anticipated eight-episode series. It’s set, naturally, in 1899, on a ship that’s traveling from Europe to New York City. However, in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, the ship encounters another vessel that’s been listed as missing for some time. What mysteries and horrors will be found on this ship? We can’t wait to find out.

Cobra Kai Season 4

The fight is coming back to Netflix and this time, the villain from The Karate Kid part III, Terry Silver, will bring the pain. While Griffith reviving his role from the film is enough to get fans of the franchise excited, there’s also a battle brewing for the soul of the valley. Season four of Cobra Kai will see the All Valley tournament return in full swing. Unfortunately, we’ll have to wait until December 31st for the new installment of the show.

The Sandman

The long awaited live-action adaptation of the DC Comics modern day fantasy series, created by Neil Gaiman, recently released its first trailer. It shows how a cult group managed to trap Dream, one of the legendary members of the Endless. The trailer showed this series will be very faithful to the source material. It’s definitely one of the most anticipated upcoming Netflix shows, and we can’t wait to see the rest of it when it debuts in 2022.

The Witcher Season 2

It’s been two long years since the first season of this fantasy series debuted. On December 17th, we finally get to see the second season as the monster hunter Geralt, played by Henry Cavill, once again fights against all sorts of enemies. We’ll also finally find out what happened after the end of season 1, where Geralt finally encounters the princess Ciri of Cintra, whom he was destined to meet.
