What’s new on Netflix for December 2017? From the TV perspective, there’s quite a bit! The holiday season is a golden time for Netflix users given that many people have time off for the holidays and use that time to binge-watch shows to their heart’s content.

Below are some of the shows that you should really keep your eyes peeled for. Note that some of these are originals to the service, whereas others are acquisitions that are still worth your time.

Bill Nye Saves the World season 2 part 1 (Netflix original) – This is where Bill Nye tries to save the world from the first season of the show. Zing!
