FRIDAY

With Love

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: Streaming on Amazon Prime Video

Series Debut
It's the most wonderful time(s) of the year! Amazon's new rom-com series doesn't just celebrate Christmas — it hits almost every major holiday in one calendar year as the Diaz siblings Lily (Emeraude Toubia) and Jorge (Mark Indelicato) search for love and purpose, experiencing the highs and lows of life during some of the most heightened days of the year. Creator Gloria Calderón Kellett created the perfect feel-good holiday rom-com to watch alone, with friends, a significant other, or the whole family. What more could you possibly want this time of year? —Sydney Bucksbaum

The Witcher

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: Streaming on Netflix

Season Premiere
The Witcher is finally back for season 2, and the stakes are only getting higher for Geralt of Rivia (Henry Cavill) and his Child of Surprise, Princess Cirilla (Freya Allan). With the Continent at war, Geralt brings Ciri to Kaer Morhen, the mountain fortress where the witchers of the School of the Wolf train pupils in the ways of the witcher. He'll have to help Ciri master her mysterious powers before they bring harm to those around her, which brings out the monster hunter's more tender nature. "He's got this deep down White Knight Syndrome, even though every time he acts upon it, it gets him into some serious trouble — and puts him and everyone else in a worse position than initially intended," Cavill previously told EW. "But with Ciri, she's definitely bringing out the paternal side of Geralt. While he hasn't necessarily been someone who craved children, he does take quite naturally to being a protector." —Tyler Aquilina

Ring in the holiday season — and the end of 2021 — with Saturday Night Live's last show of the year. Ghostbusters: Afterlife star (and recent PEOPLE's Sexiest Man Alive) Paul Rudd will host the Dec. 18 episode, marking his official induction into the famed Five-Timers Club. (He'll be joined by musical guest Charli XCX.) SNL's Christmas episode usually attracts more than a few cameos to Studio 8H, so it's probably a safe bet that Rudd will be joined by at least a few familiar Five-Timers. —Devan Coggan
