Here is your Netflix binge-list for the week, fresh from the Australian servers! This week’s highlights include new episodes of Vikings, crime documentary The Confession Killer, the vampire series V Wars and another season of Fuller House. Read on for everything coming to the service for the week of December 2 to December 8.
Netflix is holding off its big guns – namely the big-budget fantasy epic The Witcher – until later in December. But there’s still a pretty solid lineup of content to gorge on.
Fans of gritty historical drama should definitely catch up on the aforementioned Vikings – Season 5 Part 2 drops on Friday. Glow Up, a reality series about makeup artists, could also be worth a look.
There’s also the (almost certainly terrible) family flicks – A Christmas Prince: The Royal Baby and Spirit Riding Free: The Spirit of Christmas. (If you’ve got kids, just accept that you’ll probably have to watch these. Tch, the things we do for our ingrate offspring.)
