21 movies and TV shows to check out this holiday season

The holiday season is nearly upon us, bringing with it a fresh bounty of movies and shows: Oscar-bound biopics, big-budget reboots, familiar TV favorites, and two outings from one of the mightiest franchises on the planet. Here’s a spoiler-free guide to some of the most notable offerings on the big and small screens. Merry binge-watching, America!

The chilly weather heralds the return of two critically adored series.

The third season of Netflix’s glossy royal family melodrama “The Crown” (Nov. 17) jumps forward in time to the Swinging Sixties and features a new cast, including Oscar-winning actress Olivia Colman (“The Favourite”) as Queen Elizabeth II and Helena Bonham Carter as her mercurial sister, Princess Margaret. Clancy Brown, a prolific character actor, is slated to make an appearance as President Lyndon B. Johnson.

Amazon’s bubbly Emmy-winning comedy “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” (Dec. 6) also picks up in the 1960s, following Rachel Brosnahan’s motor-mouthed stand-up comedian as she and her acerbic manager (Alex Borstein) embark on a six-month tour of the United States and Europe. “This Is Us” actor Sterling K.
