Simmons on board. On November 21st, Vanessa Hudgens befriends a medieval knight who's been sent to modern-day Ohio in The Knight Before Christmas. A week later, Netflix will release Holiday Rush, about a dad (Romany Malco) who loses his job as a radio DJ and hatches a plan to buy his own station -- just as his kids share their Christmas wishlists.

As for holiday specials of Netflix shows, you can expect to see festive entries from The Great British Baking Show, Nailed It! and Sugar Rush on the baking front. There are also holiday episodes in new seasons of Magic For Humans and Team Kaylie (both December 2nd) as well as Alexa & Katie (December 30th).
