  • Netflix is adding 15 new shows, movies, and specials on the week of December 20th.
  • Original movies and shows joining the Netflix library this week include The Midnight Sky and Bridgerton.
  • Movies and TV shows leaving this week include Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and all seven seasons of The West Wing.

Netflix will get in the Christmas spirit this week by adding The Midnight Sky, a film directed by George Clooney, and Bridgerton, produced by Shonda Rhimes, to the streaming library. These are two of the most noteworthy releases of the month, but their arrival is offset by the departure of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and The West Wing at the end of the week. At the very least, do yourself a favor and rewatch Spider-Verse before it’s gone.

Here is the complete list of the Netflix streaming arrivals and departures for the week of December 20th, 2020:

But as her older brother begins to rule out her potential suitors, the high society scandal sheet written by the mysterious Lady Whistledown casts aspersions on Daphne. Enter the highly desirable and rebellious Duke of Hastings (Regé-Jean Page), committed bachelor and the catch of the season for the debutantes’ mamas.
