Published Oct 21, 2016At this point, do you really need an intro for an article about what's streaming on Netflix? We've all come to the realization that we're hopelessly, shamefully addicted to streaming movies and television shows for hours on end. We go through each month waiting for our next fix of prime content. As such, let's get down to the nitty gritty.
As always, there's an absurd amount of original content coming to Netflix in November. If we're being honest with ourselves, we're most excited about the impending return of Amy Sherman-Palladino's fast-talking characters Rori and Lorelai Gilmore. They'll finally be back with Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life on November 25.
If you'd prefer some of that boffo British content, there are two Netflix original series coming from the UK. The Crown will follow the story of Queen Elizabeth II, and launches November 4. Lovesick, meanwhile, will continue to tell the story of an STD with its second season. The show, formerly known by the superior title Scrotal Recall, returns on November 17.
There are six (yes, six!) other Netflix series debuting in November. Case, Tales by Light, Roman Empire: Reign of Blood and Estocolmo all appear on November 11, while Paranoid and 3% appear on November 17 and 25 respectively.
There are a handful of Netflix movies coming out, all of which vary in tastes. If you're craving some Kevin James action (and let's be honest, who isn't), you can catch him in a new movie called True Memoirs of an International Assassin on November 11. What a wonderful way to spend Remembrance Day.
Further, the streaming service will debut the Cannes standout Divines on November 18 and Mercy, the directorial debut from screenwriter Chris Sparling (Buried, The Sea of Trees) on November 22.
SNL fans should note three standup specials from past and current cast members, as Dana Carvey, Colin Quinn and Michael Che are dropping projects on November 4, 18 and 25 respectively. German comedian Dieter Nuhr will also deliver a special on November 15.
As for the non-exclusives, there are plenty of excellent films hitting Netflix this month. On November 1, fans can dig into Eddie the Eagle, I Am Your Father, Inherent Vice and The Book Thief, among others. One of the year's best films, Green Room will be available to stream on November 12. Maggie's Plan is set to hit on November 23, while Philomena will return to the service on November 29.
You'd also better hurry up and cram in some viewing time on the movies that are leaving the service. On November 1, Netflix will lose Fast & the Furious 6, Old School, South Park: Bigger, Longer, Uncut, Zoolander and Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance). Edge of Tomorrow leaves the service on November 7, while Nightcrawler and The Ides of March disappear on November 15 and 16 respectively.
