The Best Romances Coming to Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime in December 2018

December has some great romances coming to streaming! The new British period adaptation of Vanity Fair comes to Amazon Prime on December 21st. On Netflix, the new highly anticipated Korean Drama, Memories of the Alhambra premieres. Also, expect a special holiday episode of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina as well as what could be the final season of Fuller House.

And then over on Hulu, they’re adding many romantic Christmas films as well as all seasons of The Killing (yes, this dark crime show is ROMANTIC! It’s subtle at first but builds.) and even a couple Jane Austen adaptations.

The Best Romances Coming to Streaming

I’ve chosen the best that’s new or coming soon. So, expect to find romantic comedies, romantic dramas, romantic period dramas, as well as TV Shows or Movies that include romantic subplots. Enjoy!

(NOTE: We aim to share less explicit content that has PG-13 “like” content and below minus a few exceptions for artistic merit and/or genre interest. If a program is Rated R or TV-M, we will let you know.)

  1. I have yet to see a version of Vanity Fair I like, so I’m really looking forward to checking out the new adaptation. Fingers crossed!
