Lifetime (2); Netflix

There's never been a year in need of a burst of holiday spirit quite like 2020. Thankfully, TV is ready to deliver in spades — much like that blanket and cozy slippers that sat dormant all summer long.

The time has come for the latest batch of new holiday and Christmas movies! Seem too early? Too bad. The first of the Lifetime movies arrives on Friday, the first of 40 Hallmark movies premieres Saturday, and Netflix's sleigh isn't far behind with an Oct. 28 delivery.

Then, over the two months that follow, more than 100 (!!!) new holiday-themed movies will debut across the TV universe.

Stars like Dolly Parton, Kelly Rowland, Vanessa Hudgens, Rachael Leigh Cook, Marie Osmond, Candace Cameron Bure, and so many others are ready to entertain us between sips of hot cocoa and kisses under the mistletoe.
