Here’s What Netflix Is Adding and Removing in December 2015

Netflix has revealed its arrivals and departures for December 2015, and it’s likely that the choices will once again rub people the wrong way, as these choices tend to each month.

On the one hand, we’ll be getting some new original features such as the Bill Murray Christmas special, A Very Murray Christmas, and Adam Sandler’s controversial Western comedy, Ridiculous 6. We’ll also be getting a new season of Netflix original The Adventures of Puss in Boots, the final seasons of Hart of Dixie, Parenthood and Nurse Jackie, and Season 2 of the critically-acclaimed Broadchurch.

On the other hand, we’ll also be losing popular flicks like Batman Begins, The Silence of the Lambs, Labyrinth, The Dark Crystal and All About Eve. So it’s a bit of a mixed bag that’s likely to divide film fans. But that’s more or less the way the Netflix cookie crumbles every month.

Find out what’s arriving on Netflix and what’s leaving Netflix in December 2015 below:
