Arriving on Netflix on December 7, the Italian series “I hate Christmas” is one of the ten most viewed shows on the platform in recent days. A good reason for the binge-watcher this weekend.

Venice, winter. It is in the city of the Doges that the latest Italian series of the moment takes up residence. “I Hate Christmas” (“I Hate Christmas”, in English and “Odio il Natale”, in Italian), released on Netflix on December 7, follows the adventures of Gianna (Pilar Fogliti), a single nurse who undergoes every year from his family, in the run-up to Christmas, disturbing questions about his celibacy. Proud of her independence, Gianna finds it increasingly difficult to bear this family pressure, especially since her brothers and sisters are already married and parents.

So this year, there is no question of suffering the same intrusive remarks about his private life. In the middle of a family meal, a few weeks before Christmas, she announces to her family that she has a boyfriend and that she will introduce them on Christmas Eve. But it’s all wrong! Helped by her friends, Gianna therefore sets off in search of true love. Tinder encounters, surprise encounters and disappointments… In a little less than a month, everything is allowed to hope to find the rare pearl.

A series reminiscent of “Home For Christmas”

Currently in sixth position among the most viewed series on the platform, in France, “I hate Christmas” has everything to seduce fans of Christmas series and films. Especially since the script may tell you something… And that’s normal. The Italian romantic comedy is inspired by “Home for Christmas”, the Norwegian series by Per-Olav Sorenson, whose two seasons were released on Netflix in 2019 and 2020. This little nugget centered on Johanna (Ida Elise Broch), a 30-year-old nurse who was in the race to find the perfect boyfriend to bring to her parents at Christmas.

As soon as it was released three years ago, “Home for Christmas” won over subscribers with its way of shaking up the codes by showing an unvarnished heroine and speaking without taboos of female sexuality. It is enough to compare the trailers of the two series to find the same shots: the single heroine seated at the end of the table, at the family meal, between two twins, the wanderings in the city (a small town in Norway for one, Venice for the other)…

A season 2 for “I hate Christmas”?

If you’ve already devoured the six episodes (about thirty minutes each) of “I Hate Christmas”, you’re probably wondering when the sequel will arrive. As of now, Netflix has not announced a second season. If you’ve seen the end of the first season, everything suggests that a sequel is on the way. It remains to be seen whether the hearings are satisfactory.

We want to say thanks to the author of this post for this incredible material
