Best New Kids Shows On Netflix in December

Spend winter break streaming shows with your kids!

Netflix, DreamWorks

Netflix has quite an impressive offering for the last month of the 2018. This streaming giant knows very well that kids are starting to wind down at school. Winter break is just on the horizon, and kids are pumped to spend their time off relaxing and catching up on Netflix, eating all of the holiday treats and just hanging out with friends and family. On the bleakest and darkest of these winter days, they can curl up and watch family comedies, superhero adventures or even Guillermo del Toro’s new sci-fi extravaganza. There’s something for everyone, from children to teens, in December. You’ll even want to watch some of these series, so you might as well make it a great family bonding moment and binge-watch a TV series together. Try to work in a day to just lay around with your kids—even though it’s hard during the holidays. Your errands can probably wait a day, after all.

Fuller House: Season 4  

Netflix

DJ, Steph, Kimmy, Steve and the rest of the Tanner-Fullers return for a fourth season of Fuller House. The show picks up where it left off. Kimmy is serving as a surrogate for her brother Jimmy and friend Stephanie’s baby while DJ is rekindling her romance with Steve. This would be a great show to watch with your kids. It’ll be like watching Full House all over again.

The fourth season of Fuller House comes to Netflix December 14.

Watership Down

Netflix

Netflix and the BBC are adapting Richard Adams’s beloved children’s book. The book follows a group of adorable bunnies as they leave their homeland and go in search of a new one. Peter Capaldi John Boyega, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult, Ben Kingsley, Gemma Arterton, and Olivia Colman are voicing these rabbits, and Sam Smith is singing the theme song. This limited series is rated PG, but is supposedly emotionally devastating. 

Watership Down comes to Netflix sometime in the month of December. The release date has not been formally announced.
