The holidays are upon us, and Netflix Canada has announced their family-friendly seasonal shows and movies. Here's what's coming in 2019.

Every month, Netflix Canada announces which new TV shows and movies it will be adding to its lineup, but this time we’ve got a special release that’s all about the festive spirit! There are plenty of holiday options for little ones to look forward to this season, in addition to the usual kids’ titles that will be added to the streaming service in November in December. Here are all the new family-friendly holiday options to add to your list this year, including holiday episodes of Alexa & Katie and Super Monsters as well as a brand new animated film from the creators of Despicable Me! Check out the full lineup below.

Klaus

These unlikely friendships return laughter to Smeerensburg, forging a new legacy of generous neighbors, magical lore and stockings hung by the chimney with care.
