Netflix is gearing up for the holiday season with A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding and Angela's Christmas this weekend, along with F is for Family season 3 and some other new shows and movies.
Last week, Netflix celebrated Thanksgiving with the release of another Christmas movie, the Kurt Russell-starring The Christmas Chronicles. There are also some major new releases coming up in December, like Andy Serkis' Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle and a new adaptation of Watership Down. While you wait for those, though, here are some new titles that you can check out right now!
F is For Family Season 3
Bill Burr and Michael Price's 1970s-set animated sitcom F Is For Family returns for another season, with Burr as the voice of family patriarchy Frank Murphy. Season 3 sees executive producer Vince Vaughn join the cast as Frank's new pal, an Air Force pilot called Colonel Chet Stevenson.
A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding
This has been a big year for Netflix romcoms, and it wouldn't be Christmas without a cheesy holiday-themed romance movie. A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding is a sequel to last year's A Christmas Prince, which starred iZombie's Rose McIver as a journalist who goes undercover for a story on the crown prince of Aldovia. The Royal Wedding's title is a bit of a giveaway as to how the first movie ends, but at least now that both are on Netflix you can watch them back-to-back.
You may remember Angela's Ashes, the 1996 adaptation of the memoir of the same name by Frank McCourt, which told the story of McCourt's childhood in the poverty-stricken Irish city of Limerick. Angela's Christmas is a more family-friendly affair, inspired by a story that McCourt's mother told to him when he was a child. Set in the 1910s, Angela's Christmas sees well-meaning Irish youngster Angela "rescuing" the baby Jesus from a nativity display in the church, so she can bring him home and give him a proper family Christmas.
