A new month means new options on Netflix. November is going to bring over 70 new titles to the streaming service, but we’ve already picked out the best of the new material. Whether you’re looking for something family friendly, post-apocalyptic, hilarious or historical, Netflix has you covered with these additions.
“The Crown” Season 1 — Nov. 4
This highly anticipated series focuses on the life of Queen Elizabeth II. The season kicks off at her wedding in 1947 and eventually follows her into the present day. The British series, which is a Netflix original, stars Claire Foy of “Wolf Hall” as the Queen while “Doctor Who” alum Matt Smith plays Prince Philip. John Lithgow rounds out the cast as Winston Churchill.
“Just Friends” — Nov. 4
Chris (Ryan Reynolds) spent years in love with his best friend, Jamie (Amy Smart), but she has him firmly in the friend zone. He leaves town, but when he returns 10 years later, he has abs, a great job, a famous girlfriend (Anna Faris) — but he is still holding onto his feelings for Jamie.
“The 100” Season 3 — Nov. 16
This post-apocalyptic CW drama is a hidden gem. Tragic deaths aside, Season 3 was filled with some great moments and really pushed the characters to their limits. After the battle against Mt. Weather was won, the prisoners are seemingly at peace. However, peace never seems to last for long.
“Burn After Reading” — Nov. 16
Linda Litzke (Frances McDormand) and Chad Feldheimer (Brad Pitt) find the memoir of a former CIA analyst (John Malkovich), and they think this will get them everything they’ve ever wanted. Joel and Ethan Cohen wrote the black comedy, which also stars Tilda Swinton and George Clooney.
“Paddington” — Nov. 16
After an earthquake destroys his home, Paddington (Ben Wishaw) moves to London to live with Henry (Hugh Bonneville) and Mary Brown (Sally Hawkins). He needs to find a way to avoid Millicent Clyde (Nicole Kidman), though. The taxidermist wants his hide!
“Boyhood” — Nov. 25
This Oscar-winning film took 11 years to film. The flick, directed by Richard Linklater, follows Mason Evans Jr. (Ellar Coltrane) from ages 6 to 18. The boy starts high school and hits all the typical adolescent milestones. It isn’t a flashy concept, but the performances are stellar.
“Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life” — Nov. 25
Lorelai (Lauren Graham) and Rory (Alexis Bledel) are back, along with the whole town of Stars Hollow. This revival catches up with the ladies about eight years after the original series ended, and they might be going through some major changes. You can binge-watch this faster than you can say “copper boom!” The dramedy will only consist of four 90-minutes episodes.
“The Jungle Book” — Nov. 30
Mowgli (Neel Sethi) was literally raised by wolves, but he has to leave when a tiger (voiced by Idris Elba) threatens him. Mowgli goes on a journey and meets quite a few colorful characters in the jungle. Scarlett Johansson, Ben Kingsley, Bill Murray, Lupita Nyong’o and more famous actors voice the CGI creatures in the 2016 live-action remake.
