Will Smith is a human cop in a world shared with fantastical creatures in “Bright,” a fantasy crime thriller directed by David Ayer (director of “Suicide Squad”) and the biggest original film yet to debut on Netflix.

Arriving from the big screen comes “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” a colorful odyssey to the center of the universe with Marvel’s intergalactic team of misfit heroes.

New Netflix nonfiction original programs: Filmmaker Errol Morris combines documentary and dramatic re-creations in the miniseries “Wormwood,” a real-life murder mystery, and journalist Gay Talese becomes the subject of the documentary “Voyeur” when a controversial new story gets caught up in ethical questions.

From Germany comes the supernatural family drama “Dark.” Claire Foy returns as Queen Elizabeth II in the second season of the lavish historical drama “The Crown.” There are new seasons of the family sitcoms “Fuller House” and “The Ranch”; Spanish melodrama “Cable Girls”; British gangster drama “Peaky Blinders” and educational series “Bill Nye Saves the World”; plus stand-up comedy specials from Dave Chappelle, Craig Ferguson, Judd Apatow and Todd Barry.

New films arriving for December include “8 Mile” with Eminem, “The Young Victoria” with Emily Blunt and, just in time for Christmas, the Tim Allen comedies “The Santa Clause” and sequels.

Streaming TV includes young-adult fantasy thriller “The Magicians: Season 2” from Syfy and the period dramas “TURN: Washington’s Spies — Season 4” and “Halt and Catch Fire: Season 4” from AMC.

Among the programs leaving Netflix in November are “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl” with Johnny Depp, modern noir “Nightcrawler” with Jake Gyllenhaal, family drama “Holes” and all 11 season of “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.”

Here’s the list of what’s arriving and leaving on Netflix in December. Note that these are just highlights; Stream On Demand will be keeping an eye out for other notable films and TV shows that arrive through the month.
