The Best Movies And TV Shows To Watch In November
The Crown Season 5 (Nov. 9, Netflix)
The esteemed dramatization of the life of Queen Elizabeth II returns, more timely than ever. The second-to-last season features a complete cast turnover from Season 4, with Imelda Staunton taking over the role from Olivia Colman, who herself inherited it from Claire Foy. Elizabeth Debicki plays Princess Diana, and Dominic West plays Prince Charles. This season is set in the 1990s, as Diana and Charles’ marriage breaks down. Brace yourself for discourse. –Liam Mathews
The English (Nov. 11, Prime Video)
Emily Blunt gets in on the Western craze with this series that Prime Video describes as a “chase Western,” which I assume means there are lots of chases in it. Blunt plays an English aristocrat who finds herself teaming up with (and falling for?) a Pawnee scout as their missions of revenge intertwine. This one looks to be more stylish than the cowboy dad shows that have come out recently, with violence offsetting the dark humor and gorgeous vistas. I’ll watch it! –Tim Surette
Mythic Quest Season 3 (Nov. 11, Apple TV+)
One of Apple TV+’s best comedies is taking the battle to the workplace in Season 3. Now that Ian (Rob McElhenney) and Poppy (Charlotte Nicdao) have left Mythic Quest to try their luck at GrimPop Studios, the stage is set for an all-out office rivalry between their new company and their old one. F. Murray Abraham has left the series (find him on The White Lotus!), but the shenanigans continue. –Kelly Connolly
Yellowstone Season 5 (Nov. 13, Paramount Network)
America’s favorite Western returns for its fifth season, and the drama is sure to be as extravagant as ever. Beth Dutton (Kelly Reilly) has her miserable brother Jamie (Wes Bentley) under her thumb after blackmailing him into killing his biological father (Will Patton). John Dutton (Kevin Costner) might F around and become the governor of Montana. And most urgently, we’ll find out what Kayce (Luke Grimes) meant when he told his wife Monica (Kelsey Asbille) “I saw the end of us” after he finished his vision quest. The things the Duttons do to hold on to that ranch. -Liam Mathews
The Sex Lives of College Girls Season 2 (Nov. 17, HBO Max)
We’re living in a great time for Mindy Kaling shows about girls who go to school. Netflix has the high school series Never Have I Ever and HBO Max has The Sex Lives of College Girls, which is returning for its second season. It picks up not long after Season 1 ended, with the foursome of Kimberly (Pauline Chalamet), Bela (Amrit Kaur), Whitney (Alyah Chanelle Scott), and Leighton (Reneé Rapp) continuing to navigate their way through new relationships, financial issues, and how to set up a charitable strip show. –Allison Picurro
Disenchanted (Nov. 18, Disney+)
The long-in-the-works sequel to the 2007 fantasy romantic comedy Enchanted is finally here, with Amy Adams returning to the role of Giselle.
Set 10 years after the original, the sequel finds Giselle and her husband Robert (Patrick Dempsey) leaving New York City for the suburbs, where their fairy tale life gets disrupted by their fixer-upper house, a scheming neighbor played by Maya Rudolph, and tensions with their teenage daughter, Morgan (Gabriella Baldacchino).
Giselle casts a spell to make everything perfect, and it only makes things worse. She has until midnight to fix it. Disney+ had great success with Hocus Pocus 2, another straight-to-streaming sequel to a hit movie from long ago, and this one has the potential to be even bigger. –Liam Mathews
Welcome to Chippendales (Nov. 22, Hulu)
November is most well-known for being turkey month, but Hulu is bringing the beef. This Boogie Nights-esque drama series stars Kumail Nanjiani as the Indian immigrant who birthed Chippendales, the once extremely popular strip club for women that thrived in the 1980s. But as the club began to expand and the brand began to bulge, the drama between business partners broke out. Murray Bartlett, Dan Stevens, and Juliette Lewis also star. –Tim Surette
Amazon Prime Video’s best new shows and movies in November
Amazon Prime Video has a busy month of new movies and shows this November, but you’ll have to go sift through the pile to find the good stuff. We like the look of Emily Blunt’s action Western The English, a stylish and violent series starring Blunt as an aristocrat on a revenge mission who teams up with a Pawnee who is also a former member of the cavalry.
And we’ll be wiping the tears away after watching Good Night Oppy, a touching documentary about the Mars rover Opportunity that has a shot at awards this season. Also coming this month are all six seasons of The Mindy Project and the final season of Animal Kingdom.
HBO And HBO Max’s Best New Shows And Movies In November
We’re moving out of the spooky season and into the giving season, which HBO and HBO Max are celebrating by giving you some new programming.
Starting in mid-to-late November, you can look forward to Season 2 of Mindy Kaling’s The Sex Lives of College Girls, Season 3 of the drag reality series We’re Here, a Shaq docuseries, and a Lizzo documentary.
It’s something of a slow start to a quiet month, but at least we have new episodes of The White Lotus airing every week. Here’s our list of the best shows and movies on HBO and HBO Max in November, plus everything coming to HBO and HBO Max in November.
Hulu’s Best New Shows And Movies In November
Some spaces on the web promote the idea of self-imposed abstinence during the month of November, but Hulu’s sexed-up lineup for the month will try to bring them back to the dark side.
Hulu’s November kicks off with the scandalous affairs behind religious leader/hypocritical sex maniac Jerry Falwell Jr.’s downfall in the documentary film God Forbid: The Scandal That Brought Down a Dynasty, take a turn to a divorced man exploring carnal delights via dating apps while his life falls apart in Fleishman Is in Trouble, and continue with the greased-up torsos of male strippers in the drama series Welcome to Chippendales.
If it’s in our picks, it’s something you won’t want to watch with your parents (unless you are a Targaryen). Here’s our list of the best shows and movies on Hulu in November, plus everything coming to Hulu in November
Netflix’s Best New Shows And Movies In November
November 2022 has the highest concentration of high-level programming coming to Netflix in the past several months, if not the whole year. November will see the returns of some of Netflix’s best shows, led by The Crown and Dead to Me, as well as the Netflix Original debut of Manifest, Netflix’s biggest show of 2021 not called Squid Game.
There are also some big debuts, like supernatural mystery epic 1899 and broadcast-style workplace comedy Blockbuster. There’s so much good stuff that we’re not even going to recommend Tim Burton’s Addams Family series Wednesday, which looks terrible! Here’s our list of the best shows and movies on Netflix in October, plus everything coming to Netflix in November.
