by Pam Silvia

We’re nearing the end of the year, and before you reflect on all the quality streaming content 2021 has gifted us, don’t count the year’s remaining releases out of the running. Catch these new and returning shows when they premiere on their respective streaming platforms. Round up your loved ones and get cozy!

Foodtastic (Disney+, December 15)

An immersive global competition series, Foodtastic on Disney+ showcases highly skilled artists as they create larger-than-life sculptures made entirely out of food. From vegetables and butter to fruit and cheese, everyday ingredients are transformed into works of art. Viewers can feast their eyes on edible scenes from Disney favorites, including those from Beauty and the Beast, the Star Wars franchise, and Guardians of the Galaxy. This casual watch is hosted by actress, singer, and television personality Keke Palmer, who is as winsome and charismatic as ever. Joining the Emmy Award® winner are FLOUR SHOP founder Amirah Kassem and NYC's City Cakes founder Chef Benny Rivera, who serve as the show’s resident experts.

The competition series will be available to stream on Disney+ beginning December 15.

The Witcher (Netflix, December 17)

Two years after it marked its premiere in 2019, The Witcher follows Geralt of Rivia (portrayed by Henry Cavill) as he journeys through a turbulent world where people often prove to be more wicked than the beasts he is paid to hunt. Largely told in a series of simultaneous flashbacks, this fantasy drama picks up where the first season left off. After a group of mages led by Geralt’s ally Yennefer (a sorceress played by Anya Chalotra) stops the advancement of the Nilfgaardian army into the North, a mortally wounded Geralt finally meets Ciri (Freya Allan), the crown princess who is linked to Geralt by destiny before her birth. This meeting is momentous, as Geralt is closer to discovering his purpose.

Season 2 of the fantasy epic will debut on Netflix on December 17.

Emily in Paris (Netflix, December 22)

After getting a renewal order back in November 2020, the much-talked-about rom-com series starring Lily Collins, Lucas Bravo, and Ashley Park is slated to return this month! Season 2 continues to follow a 20-something Emily (Collins), an American fashionista who has moved to Paris to handle social media at a luxury marketing firm. There, she falls in love, gets messy, makes mistakes, and lives her life. And like the previous season, viewers can expect more over-the-top outfits, cross-cultural bloopers, and love-life hurdles as Emily coasts and blunders her way through another year in The City of Light.

Emily in Paris returns to Netflix on December 22.

Dragons: The Nine Realms (Hulu, December 23)

Kiddos and parents alike are familiar with the DreamWorks franchise How to Train Your Dragon and its adorable, winged mascot Toothless. The brains behind the successful films are forging new territory through its upcoming animated series, Dragons: The Nine Realms, picking up 1,300 years after Toothless and Hiccup’s story leaves off. In this modern time, humans have forgotten their history with dragons until a breakthrough geological discovery leads to humanity’s rediscovery of the beasts. At this point, a group of kids encounters dragons themselves — but in order to protect them, they must keep them a closely guarded secret.

Streaming on both Hulu and Peacock, Dragons: The Nine Realms will premiere on December 23.

The Book of Boba Fett (Disney +, December 29)

More than a fixture in Star Wars memorabilia, intergalactic bounty hunter Boba Fett (played by Temuera Morrison) is finally getting his own self-titled feature with The Book of Boba Fett. Nearly a year after the spinoff was first teased in the second season finale of The Mandalorian, this new Disney+ series follows the son of Jango Fett as he joins forces with Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen), an elite mercenary and assassin in her own right. Together, both outlaws attempt to make a name for themselves in the galaxy’s underworld by returning to the sands of Tatooine to stake their claim on the territory once ruled by Jabba the Hutt and his crime syndicate.

Jump into hyperspace — or wait — to start streaming the new series on Disney+ on December 29.
