Here are the other highlights for December:

The Wilds (triple-episode premiere, December 11)

Part survival drama, part dystopic slumber party, it follows a group of teen girls from different backgrounds who must fight for survival after a plane crash strands them on a deserted island. The castaways both clash and bond as they learn more about each other, the secrets they keep, and the traumas they’ve all endured. There’s just one twist to this thrilling drama … these girls did not end up on this island by accident.

The Expanse (triple-episode premiere, December 16)

Unlike its predecessors, the penultimate season will stream weekly. Reads the blurb: “A heavy price for centuries of exploitation of the Belt finally comes due and a reckoning is at hand. For the crew of the Rocinante and the leaders of the Inner Planets and the Belt, the past and present converge, bringing forth personal challenges that have wide-reaching repercussions throughout the Solar System.”

 The Grand Tour Presents A Massive Hunt (December 18)

Armed with three sports cars, Richard, James and Jeremy believe they are in for a cushy road trip as they arrive in the exotic island of Reunion to race on the world’s most expensive piece of tarmac, a jaw dropping ring road built out in the sea. But a bizarre challenge propels them across the ocean to Madagascar, where they must tackle the toughest road in the world, in some of the most extremely modded cars they have ever built, to complete one of their toughest quests to date.


The Sound of Metal (December 4)

An itinerant punk-metal drummer Ruben (Riz Ahmed) begins to experience intermittent hearing loss that threatens his career. His bandmate and girlfriend Lou (Olivia Cooke) checks him into a secluded sober house for the deaf in hopes it will prevent a relapse and help him adapt. But after being welcomed into a community that accepts him just as he is, Ruben has to choose between his equilibrium and the drive to reclaim the life he once knew. Using startling, innovative sound design techniques, director Darius Marder takes audiences inside Ruben’s experience to vividly recreate his journey into a rarely examined world.

I’m Your Woman (December 11)

Suburban housewife Jean (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’s Rachel Brosnahan) lives a seemingly easy life, supported by husband Eddie’s (Bill Heck) career as a thief. But when Eddie betrays his partners, Jean and her baby are forced to go on the run, and Eddie’s old friend Cal (Arinzé Kene) is tasked with keeping them safe. After Cal mysteriously disappears, Jean befriends his wife Teri (Marsha Stephanie Blake) and the two women set out on a perilous journey into the heart of Eddie’s criminal underworld. A decidedly female take on crime dramas of the 1970s, I’m Your Woman is a tale of love, betrayal, motherhood — and what it takes to claim your life as your own.

Sylvie’s Love (December 25)

In the hot New York summer of 1957, Robert (Nnamdi Asomugha), a saxophonist, spends late nights playing behind a less-talented but well-known bandleader, as member of a jazz quartet. Sylvie (Tessa Thompson), who dreams of a career in television, spends her summer days helping around her father’s record store, as she waits for her fiancé to return from war. When Robert takes a part-time job at the record store, the two begin a friendship that sparks a deep passion that neither has felt before — only to go in different directions until a chance encounter years later. Writer/director Eugene Ashe combines romance and music into a sweeping story that brings together changing times, a changing culture, and the true price of love.
