After being in various stages of pandemic-related lockdown for almost a year, Christmas offers a mixed bag. We might not be able to be with our loved ones in person this year, but we can enjoy a wide array of holiday movies and specials, from one-off celebrity offerings to Freeform, Hallmark and Lifetime’s holiday movie marathons.
December also has a few exciting series premieres, including Amazon’s fifth and penultimate season of The Expanse and CBS All Access’ remaking of Stephen King’s The Stand, starring James Marsden and Alexander Skarsgard.
