There is a lot of exciting stuff happening on Netflix in the upcoming month, so prepare yourselves for all the nights in. From season three of The Crown to the next instalment of Queer Eye, these are Stylist’s picks of the best content arriving on Netflix over the next month.
The period after Halloween and Bonfire Night but before Christmas can be a confusing time. Indeed, the age-old question of when to start celebrating Christmas will begin to crop up every so often – and with seemingly nothing to do before December begins, it can feel like we’re just waiting around for something exciting to happen.
But no fear: Netflix has swooped in to save the day, and November is possibly shaping up to be the most exciting month on the platform in 2019.
Obviously, taking centre stage on Netflix this month is the return of The Crown, which sees Olivia Colman take centre stage as the Queen with Helena Bonham Carter appearing as Princess Margaret. And even if you’re not a fan of the period drama, Netflix has got some treats in store for you, too: Queer Eye is returning for a special series from Japan, and Atypical is coming back for our viewing pleasure.
This useful guide to all the best new content arriving on the platform in November is sure to get you excited for the month ahead: whether you want a new TV show to binge watch, an early festive film to enjoy or a one-off documentary special, we’ve got you covered.
We’ll be updating this story throughout the month as new projects and release dates are announced, so make sure to watch this space.
