7 new movies and series on Netflix, Prime Video, HBO Max and more this weekend

It’s almost Christmas but surprisingly streaming services aren’t flooded with seasonal movies. In fact, there is a notable absence of sleighs and bells this weekend. Instead, there are several very interesting premieres and others not so much.

The biggest premiere is season 2 of The Witcher, which brings Geralt, the monster hunter played by Henry Cavill back into the fight (although given the amount of artificial snow that Netflix has put in the second outing of the series, it could also be considered a Christmas classic).

Here are the seven most significant releases coming to Netflix, HBO Max, and Prime Video in the coming days.

The Witcher season 2 (Netflix)

The Witcher returns for its second season this week, ready to continue the adventures of our favorite silver-haired warrior.

Following the dramatic end of Season 1, Netflix’s big-budget fantasy series returns with new episodes set in snow-capped mountains and icy ravines as Geralt (Henry Cavill) continues his journey with Ciri (Freya Allan). The show’s second season is “more ambitious, action-packed, and emotional” in our review. Returning fans will find even more of what they like.

We also spoke with Cavill, showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich, and the rest of the show’s main cast ahead of season 2’s launch. They told us audiences will have “bigger and more expansive” action, but also a “more intimate, emotional and private “.
