This chilly season, Netflix has us set to get under our blankets and flick on some of our old faves, and get our teeth sunk into some new upcoming releases.
Whilst rom-com fans may be sad saying their goodbyes to He’s Just Not That Into You, Bridget Jones’ Baby and Clueless, the streaming platform is bringing back favourites like Notting Hill and The Bodyguard to warm our frosty hearts. And just in time for us to throw out our skeletons and get cosy with Christmas flicks, there is also a new release in the form of Lindsay Lohan’s new movie, Falling for Christmas.
There will also be plenty of documentaries, but we’re most keen on some of Britain’s favourite television series returning. The highly anticipated season 5 of The Crown will soon be airing, and will be following Princess Diana in the 90s as her relationship with husband Prince Charles faces marital scandal. Royalty continues to reign supreme with the release of the steamy drama Blood, Sex and Royalty, which follows some of the sexiest monarchs in history and Florence Pugh stars in a brand new psychological thriller The Wonder, which is up there on our ultimate must-watch list. So, sit back, relax, and take your pick from our list below.
