Mid-December is always a strange time of the year for high-profile streaming exclusives, and a cursory glance at the most-watched lists for all the major platforms makes it abundantly clear that the majority of subscribers already have one eye firmly on Christmas.
However, Netflix has two dozen new titles heading to the library between tomorrow and Sunday, but you already know which one is going to be the top talking point. We are of course referring to Season 2 of The Witcher, which has Henry Cavill back with a vengeance as Geralt of Rivia.
Having been dislodged by Bridgerton and then Squid Game, the fantasy action epic will be looking to reclaim its position as the most-watched original show in Netflix history. It doesn’t land until Friday, though, but you can check out the full list of incomers below.

In terms of in-house exclusives, the roster for next week is looking a little light, but at least genre fans have the one-two punch of The Witcher and Spider-Man: No Way Home on Friday. The only real question is which one you’re going to see first, especially when you can guarantee millions of fans will be bingeing the former in its entirety in a single sitting.
