Coming to Netflix in December: ‘The Crown’ Season 2, ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,’ ‘Dark’ Season 1

As the fall TV season winds down, streaming services ramp up their available programming just in time for sweater weather binging.

Netflix's biggest draw this month is the second season of The Crown, the smash hit drama exploring the life of Queen Elizabeth II. The streaming giant also gets a German-language supernatural mystery series with Dark.

And, of course, there are quite a few holiday movies arriving just in time for chilly winter nights.

Here are my top picks:

Dark Season 1: The new German-language drama (with English subtitles) features a series of disappearing children, hidden horrors in a small town and possible supernatural elements. It sounds perfect for fans of Stranger Things and It. Dec. 1

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2: Marvel's smartest move was making Guardians of the Galaxy a comedy with a whole lot of heart. The second movie, featuring the adorable baby Groot (Vin Diesel), is even funnier than the first. Dec .5

Review: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

The Crown Season 2: While the first season of this scintillating period drama focused on Queen Elizabeth II's struggles before and after ascending the throne, the second delves more into the mysterious lives of royalty. Elizabeth and husband Prince Philip are about the enter the 1960s and their marriage and lives as the faces of England are only going to get more complicated. Dec. 8

Disney's The Santa Clause trilogy: The '90s Christmas classic that kind of made you wish your dad could accidentally kill Santa Claus so you all could live in the North Pole, too. Dec. 12
