Ah, fall, the season of pumpkin spice, apple everything, soups, sweaters—and a whole slew of new movies and shows to stream from the comfort of your cozy living room.

Netflix released its fall content preview, and there’s a little something for everyone in the lineup.

Falling for Christmas

Lindsay Lohan is baaaack! The former child/teen star (The Parent Trap! Freaky Friday! Mean Girls!) inked a two-movie deal with Netflix, and the first film will definitely put you in the holiday mood. The rom-com Falling for Christmas sounds like it will rival any Hallmark holiday movie this year: “A newly engaged, spoiled hotel heiress gets into a skiing accident, suffers from total amnesia and finds herself in the care of a handsome blue-collar lodge owner and his precocious daughter in the days leading up to Christmas.” Chord Overstreet stars as Lohan’s love interest in the Nov. 10th release.

The second film starring Lohan (release date not yet announced) is Irish Kiss. Netflix describes the plot like this: “Always a bridesmaid, never a bride — unless, of course, your best friend gets engaged to the love of your life, you make a spontaneous wish for true love, and then magically wake up as the bride-to-be.” 


Ivy + Bean

The popular book series by Annie Barrows makes the jump to the screen with three films: Ivy + Bean, Ivy + Bean: The Ghost That Had To Go, and Ivy + Bean: Doomed to Dance. Releasing Sept. 2. 


The Crown, Season 5

A Netflix fan favorite, The Crown returns for season five—and a new era. Queen Elizabeth II, now played by Imelda Staunton, focuses on the second half of the 20th century for the current British monarch. While Netflix hasn’t released any trailers or a specific release date, we know it’s arriving sometime in November. 


Cobra Kai, Season 5

The Karate Kid franchise returns for a fifth season of the popular sequel series on Sept. 9. 


Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical

This classic middle-grade novel gets a fun new theatrical update on Dec. 9. Starring Emma Thompson as the truly terrible Miss Trunchbull and newcomer Alisha Weir as the magical Matilda Wormwood, the film looks and sounds like a fun family evening in the making (though I must confess I think I’ll miss Danny DeVito as Mr. Wormwood circa 1996!). 


 

Conversations with a Killer: The Jeffrey Dahmer Tapes

True crime fans will want to catch this three-part documentary featuring newly unearthed recorded interviews with the convicted serial killer’s legal team. Releasing Oct. 7. 


The School for Good and Evil

Based on the New York Times bestselling series by Soman Chainani, The School for Good and Evil follows best friends Sophie and Agatha at an enchanted school for aspiring heroes and villains. The two find themselves on opposing sides in this fantasy film, which stars Charlize Theron and Kerry Washington. Releasing Oct. 19.


 

Love is Blind, Season 3

Nick and Vanessa Lachey return for this guilty pleasure reality show, now entering its third season . . . and nominated for an Emmy in 2022 (really!).

There was a time when I boycotted everything romance. It was just easier that way. I was single at the time so watching sappy romances only made me lonelier for my own prince charming. There was also a time when I was too busy living out my own happily ever after than to sit and watch make-believe fairy tales. While I was dating my soon-to-be husband and during the first couple years of our marriage, I was far too wrapped up in developing my own love story to have time for Hallmark Channel’s yearly Countdown to Christmas love fest. Up...

90s Movies to Watch With Your Tweens & Teens (Because What Else Are You Going to Do?!)

In: Teen, Tween

Well, friends, it looks like we are all hunkered down for a while and need to start some serious brainstorming about how we’re going to pass this time. Parents with littles are probably scrambling to think of sensory activities and how to get them to burn all the extra energy bottled up in those tiny bodies. But what about parents with tweens and teens? They are also stuck inside, and even the grumpiest of adolescents might come to their mom and after a couple of days and say, “I’m bored. Want to do something?”  So here’s your chance, Mom and...

11 One-Liners in "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation" That Will Snap You Back to Reality www.herviewfromhome.com

Well, here I am. This weekend was completely crazy, and my body is exhausted. We are small business owners and I work outside the home two days a week as well. There are still three weeks to Christmas but I’m already feeling behind! Our two little boys’ attitudes are proving they aren’t entirely understanding the true reason for the season and it’s so frustrating. But wait—am I remembering the true reason? Or am I myself having some troubles in this area as well? Can I really blame my kids for not focusing on Christ and family rather than presents and...
