We’re not even into fall yet, but Netflix is already preparing its upcoming holiday film slate! According to a new report from What’s On Netflix, Netflix has acquired the rights to the bestselling novel The Noel Diary by Richard Paul Evan.
This Is Us alum Justin Hartley has been tapped to star in the film alongside Bonnie Bedelia and Treat Williams. For those unfamiliar with the novel, it has a pretty length synopsis but Netflix describes the movie as a story about a man who returns home after his mother’s death and falls in love with a former acquaintance.
Based on the book and the film title, we can assume that the story will deal with what he finds at home, specifically in an old diary left behind by someone named Noel.
The Noel Diary release date
The Netflix page for the film reveals that the movie will be released on November 24, 2022.
The Noel Diary cast

Here’s the full cast list (so far):

The Noel Diary synopsis
The current logline for the film is pretty short and sweet, here’s what we have so far:
A man returns home at his mother’s death and while exploring his own past, falls in love with a family acquaintance. Based on the novel by Richard Paul Evans.
Is there a trailer for The Noel Diary?
There is no trailer yet and we probably should not expect to see teasers or trailers until October or early November. With Halloween coming up, Netflix will probably be releasing more Netflix & Chills content for their 2022 line-up, but it is possible we could see a first look for this movie at the Tudum event in September.
The Noel Diary is coming this November to Netflix. Are you planning to watch this Christmas movie when it premieres?
