Vehicular Viewing: New on Netflix, Amazon, and Hulu for December 2019
As 2019 draws to a close, you’ll find no shortage of fresh car-centric movie and TV viewing options on the three major streaming services — especially if you’re a Fast & Furious fan. Here’s a look at what’s newly available on Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hulu for December.
6 Underground (12/13)
Expect plenty of explosions and car chases from this Michael Bay-directed action extravaganza. Ryan Reynolds stars as a tech billionaire who heads up a covert squad of vigilantes. What could possibly go wrong with this scenario?
Fast & Furious Spy Racers: Season 1 (12/26)
Based on the blockbuster movie franchise, this new animated series is aimed at a younger audience and features Dom Toretto’s cousin Tony as an undercover agent investigating a secret criminal racing league.
If you love classic Fords like the Model A, Model T, Model TT truck, and V8 Roadster, you’ll get a kick out of this riveting 2012 crime film set during the Prohibition era.

Havana Motor Club (12/1)
This fascinating 2016 documentary explores Cuba’s underground racing scene and the country’s deep love for classic cars. (This movie is also coming to Hulu in December.)
Set in the 1980s, this Transformers spinoff offers a nostalgia-heavy take on the Autobot vs. Decepticon saga — and lots and lots of classic cars. (This movie is also coming to Hulu in December.)
Transporter 2 (12/1)
Jason Statham’s no-questions-asked man of action returns for the second of three Transporter movies. In this 2005 installment, he’s trying to protect a young boy while chauffeuring behind the wheel of a luxurious Audi A8.
The Fast and the Furious (12/1)
Go back to where it all started in 2001 with the first movie in the Fast & Furious franchise. It’s a much more down-to-earth movie compared to the increasingly huge and farfetched blockbusters that followed. If you want to keep watching, Hulu is adding 2 Fast 2 Furious (2003) and The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006) at the same time, along with Fast & Furious (2009) on Dec. 16.
