To help you find what to watch, we’ve shared a list of the best Netflix shows and movies to watch on New Year’s Eve 2021.

Let’s go to the list!

Best Netflix movies for New Years 2021

It’s been an amazing year for Netflix movies. There were so many movies to watch throughout the year, so if you need more choice, we highly recommend checking out the list of the best Netflix movies to find something to watch.

Don’t look up

Don’t look up is the best Netflix movie to end the year. The star-studded, Adam McKay-directed dark comedy tells the story of two scientists, played by Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Lawrence, who attempt to raise the alarm about a planet-destroying comet. They are met with skepticism, ignorance and worse.

The lost girl

The lost girl stars Olivia Colman and Dakota Johnson and is directed by Maggie Gyllenhaal. It is based on the book of the same name by Elena Ferrante.

The lost girl just released on Netflix on December 31, 2021.

Check out the synopsis of The lost girl below, via Netflix:

Alone on vacation by the sea, Leda (Olivia Colman) falls in love with a young mother and her daughter as she watches them on the beach. Troubled by their compelling relationship (and their loud, threatening extended family), Leda is overwhelmed by her own memories of the terror, confusion, and intensity of early motherhood. An impulsive act shocks Leda into the strange and disturbing world of her own mind, where she is forced to confront the unconventional choices she made as a young mother and their consequences.

Dead to 2021

Dead to 2021 is not for everyone. I probably won’t watch it, but if you like satire and want to reflect on what happened this year, this is probably the movie for you.

the unforgivable

the unforgivable remains one of the best films of the year on Netflix. Sandra Bullock stars in the Netflix film, which tells the story of a woman who is released from prison years after committing a violent crime and tries to rebuild her life.

Best Netflix shows for New Years 2021

What a year 2021 has been for Netflix shows. Things got off to a slow start in early 2021 due to the pandemic, but there were so many great shows released between July and the end of the year.

Netflix ends the year in style! There were three huge Netflix shows released today, and you’ll find them as the top three picks on the list.

And there are so many great Netflix shows coming in 2022! You better watch all those hits first.

External banks

I included External banks on nearly every major list I’ve written this year, and I’m not stopping. look External banks. Become one of the Pogues. Have a good time all the time. In that order, please.

We couldn’t leave the witcher off the list despite being the most popular show in the world right now. the witcher season 2 premiered on Netflix on December 17, 2021. If you need a fantastic show to watch on Netflix, this is it.

Emily in Paris

Emily in Paris is also one of the best shows on Netflix right now. Emily in Paris Season 2 premiered on Netflix on December 22. If you need another fun and dramatic show to watch on Netflix, this is the show for you on New Years Eve.

Crime Scene: The Times Square Killer

We had to include a real choice of crime! Crime Scene: The Times Square Killer is the second season of the new true-crime anthology series that began with The disappearance at the Hotel Cecil.

Good year! See you all in 2022!
