What’s Coming to Amazon Prime Video in December 2021, Including ‘Being the Ricardos’ and ‘Expanse’

Fern Siegel

Amazon Prime Video is debuting a host of interesting originals this month, including “Being the Ricardos,” written and directed by Aaron Sorkin (“West Wing”). It centers on the behind-the scenes drama of the famed sitcom “I Love Lucy,” which ran from 1951-1957, and stars Nicole Kidman and Javier Bardem as Lucy and Desi. The film will have a limited theatrical release before streaming.

A big draw in December is also the final season of the sci-fi thriller “The Expanse,” set amid a solar-system-wide civil war.

Another original, “Harlem,” kicks off its first season. The comedy, from Tracy Oliver (“Girls Trip”), is about four ambitious friends. Comedy fans will also appreciate the “Yearly Departed,” featuring an all-star lineup of female comedians roasting 2021.

For soccer fans, there is the docuseries “FC Bayern: Behind the Legend,” which follows the club from its victory in the 2020 Champions League final to the end of the 2020/21 season.
