Netflix December 2022 Releases: Qala, Glass Onion, Emily in Paris Season 3, and More
Netflix India is enjoying a packed December 2022, having announced five originals so far. (Actually, the streaming service has “announced” four so far — but we've discovered a fifth via international Netflix listings.) December kicks off with Qala, a pre-Independence psychological drama from Bulbbul director Anvitaa Dutt, and starring Triptii Dimri, Swastika Mukherjee, and Babil Khan. In it, a rising playback singer (Dimri) copes with the pressure of success, a mother's disdain, and the voices of doubt within her. Qala is out December 1. Meanwhile, Randeep Hooda plays a former police informant who's pulled back into the world of drugs and investigations in CAT, releasing December 9 on Netflix.
A day prior to that, we'll be treated to Kartiki Gonsalves' short nature documentary The Elephant Whisperers, about a south Indian couple who devote their lives to caring for an orphaned baby elephant. The Elephant Whisperers will be available December 8 on Netflix. There's another Indian documentary — a docuseries, in fact — in December, with Indian Predator returning for its fourth edition, Beast of Bangalore, coming December 16.
And that brings us to the fifth original of December 2022, the one that's yet to be unveiled by Netflix India. Vir Das is returning for his fourth Netflix stand-up special with Vir Das: Landing, out Boxing Day, December 26. Das will speak about his childhood, the perils of outrage, and finding his feet in the world.
Okay, but what are the biggest international Netflix originals in December 2022? Glad you asked. Daniel Craig returns as detective Benoit Blanc in Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery — available December 23 on Netflix — with writer-director Rian Johnson packing him off to Greece for a new murder mystery involving a tech billionaire and his eclectic friends. The most anticipated series is the return of Emily in Paris for its third season — available December 21 on Netflix — with Lily Collins' marketing exec getting bangs and trying to reassure herself everything is fine.
If you are interested in seeing more original Netflix series, December 2022 expands the universe of The Witcher with the prequel spin-off The Witcher: Blood Origin. Starring Michelle Yeoh, Sophia Brown, and Laurence O'Fuarain, it's set over a thousand years before the events of The Witcher, with seven outcasts in an Elven world joining forces to stop an all-powerful empire. The Witcher: Blood Origin drops Christmas Day, December 25 on Netflix.
Elsewhere, there's a couple of spy series that you might want to check out. In Treason — out Boxing Day December 26 on Netflix — an MI6 deputy's (Charlie Cox) bright future takes a sharp turn after a reunion with a Russian spy (Olga Kurylenko) forces him to question his entire life. In The Recruit — out December 16 on Netflix — Black Adam and To All the Boys star Noah Centineo plays a rookie CIA lawyer who is drawn into the dangerous world of international espionage.
If you prefer movies, Netflix has a lot for you in December 2022 as well. On December 9, Oscar-winning Guillermo del Toro offers a dark stop-motion take on the classic story of a wooden puppet. Guillermo del Toro's Pinocchio features the voices of Ewan McGregor, David Bradley, Gregory Mann, Tilda Swinton, Finn Wolfhard, and Christoph Waltz. In Lady Chatterley's Lover on December 2, Emma Corrin's unhappily married titular aristocrat begins a torrid affair with the gamekeeper on her husband's country estate.
Meanwhile, film auteurs Alejandro G. Iñárritu and Noah Baumbach have a new movie apiece in December. In Bardo, from Iñárritu and out December 16 on Netflix, a journalist and documentarian goes on an epic introspective journey to reconcile with the past, the present, and his identity. And in White Noise, from Baumbach and out December 30 on Netflix, a professor of Hitler studies (Adam Driver) is torn asunder by “the Airborne Toxic Event”, a disastrous train accident that casts chemical waste over his town.
Lastly, documentaries fans should keep an eye on “Sr.”, where Robert Downey Jr. pays tribute to his late father as he chronicles the life and eclectic career of pioneering filmmaker Robert Downey Sr. “Sr.” is out December 2 on Netflix.
