Christmas TV Specials for 2023

The 2023 Christmas TV Specials We Are Adding to Our Must-Watch List So Far

Christmas TV Specials for 2023

Christmas TV is a staple for December, just like Michael Bublé on repeat, mince pies for breakfast, and Advent calendars to help you countdown to the big day. Every year, TV channels and streaming platforms create festive specials and one-off shows to keep us entertained over Christmas, starting at the beginning of party season and taking us right through to January.

While we've had some of the best Christmas episodes and specials over the years ("Gavin and Stacey"'s bombshell engagement springs to mind), we are expecting a whole new batch of Christmas TV specials to enjoy this year. Of course, you're also likely to intersperse your TV viewing with some of the best Christmas films on Netflix or celebrating the 20th anniversary of "Love Actually" by rewatching it for the one hundredth time, but you can also brighten your Christmas nights with some original TV viewing.

From Hannah Waddingham's musical extravaganza to the star-studded cast of the festive animation "Mog's Christmas", read ahead to find our picks of Christmas TV for 2023 so far.
