Over the American Thanksgiving weekend, Happiest Season had the best viewership for any original film on the streaming service in its opening weekend. It also attracted more new subscribers than any other previous feature title, according to Variety.

The LGBTQ holiday film brings together Dan Levy and Kristen Stewart, along with many A-listers, including Mackenzie Davis, Aubrey Plaza, Alison Brie, Victor Garber and Mary Steenburgen.
