Netflix November 2021 - The Best New Movies And TV Shows To Watch

The autumn leaves are more colorful than ever for Netflix. The streaming platform's had a field day with the global smash hit "Squid Game," and luckily, it has plenty of things lined up to follow up that success. This, of course, is an excellent thing for you, the viewer. Rarely has the streamer been able to boast as brilliant a lineup as it does for this November. The month marks the transition from Spooky Season to full-on Holiday Season, but while you might have a rough idea of what kind of programming that entails, rest assured that Netflix has a whole bunch of nice surprises up its sleeve, too. 

But what should you watch during November 2021, a true Holy Grail month for Netflix subscribers? What's the hot new thing everyone's talking about at the virtual water cooler, and what shows and movies should you quickly add to your queue before they leave the platform? To help you with these tough, tough decisions, we've compiled a list of best new Netflix movies and TV shows for November.

All the cool original shows heading for Netflix in November

As tends to be the case these days, Netflix will pepper November with all sorts of new platform-exclusive shows, as well as new seasons of old fan favorites. On the new show front, "Squid Game" has proved that virtually any newcomer has the potential to become the next big thing, but the biggest name out of the gate is quite possibly the John Cho-starring live-action version of the legendary anime "Cowboy Bepop," which will drop on November 19. 

Many old favorites are also set to make their grand Netflix return this month. On November 5, viewers are treated to a double whammy of "Narcos: Mexico" Season 3, and the fifth season of everyone's favorite filthy, animated coming-of-age show "Big Mouth." Speaking of animation, Kevin Smith's "Masters of the Universe: Revelation" Season 2 will drop on November 23 — and if the fan backlash to Season 1 is anything to go by, it'll one of the platform's most talked-about things all month.

Netflix goes all in with original films on November

The time of year being what it is, it's easy to think that Netflix's original films on November will skew toward the Holiday season. Indeed, the month's original offerings are tactically sprinkled with titles ranging from "The Claus Family" to "A Boy Called Christmas" and "A Castle for Christmas" — but don't think for a second that's all you're getting. 

One major heavy hitter arrives on November 3, when "The Harder They Fall" premieres on Netflix. The Western from Jeymes Samuel looks amazing and features a Who's Who of prominent Black actors, from Idris Elba and Jonathan Majors to Delroy Lindo and Regina King — all playing fictionalized versions of real Old West heroes and villains. On November 11, Netflix delivers another stacked cast in the star-studded heist movie "Red Notice," which puts tentpole movie stars Gal Gadot, Dwayne Johnson, and Ryan Reynolds against each other. Regardless of who will emerge as the victor, the real winner is the viewer.

Netflix is bringing you plenty of original documentaries and comedy specials

There are many great documentaries coming out on November, but let's be honest — you don't need a crystal ball to figure out which one stands the best chance of becoming a runaway hit. It will be interesting to see whether the second installment of "Tiger King," which premieres on November 17, can replicate the early-days-of-pandemic cultural phenomenon success of the original. Netflix has promised that "Tiger King 2" will contain "just as much mayhem and madness as Season 1" (via Twitter), which promises some pretty big things, considering what went down last time.

Other interesting Netflix docs worth checking out are ... well, all of them, really. From "Camp Confidential: America's Secret Nazis" to the mountain climbing documentary "14 Peaks: Nothing is Impossible," the month has something for everyone. On the comedy front, Netflix gives you the gift of a comedy special from Carlos Ballarta, as well as Oliver Polak's "Your Life Is A Joke."

Netflix has a great November lineup for family shows

Netflix always has something for every pair of eyes, regardless of their age. The month of November is no exception, and the platform has new family content arriving on a steady schedule throughout the month. 

The educational StoryBots return in November 16 with their newest show, "StoryBots: Laugh, Learn, Sing," which promises a music-themed look at the alphabet. Another animated offering, "Robin Robin," is an interesting-looking stop-motion story about a bird that grew up with mice. The family-themed month ends in November 30 with three "Charlie's Colorforms City" educational specials for the youngest members of the family.  

Oh, and hey, "Dogs in Space" drops on November 19. Who doesn't love dogs having adventures in space? They're space dogs!

Netflix is packing November with classic movies and shows

If you love to spend this time of the year tucked in with your favorite snacks and watching a classic movie or five, Netflix has your November all worked out. The month's very first day brings in an opening salvo of epic proportions, as a combination of movies ranging from "Moneyball" to "Snakes on a Plane" arrives on the streaming platform. 

The day's arrivals are a rare, true case of "something for everyone," with most every genre and era getting its moment in the limelight. Horror fans can treat themselves to "Bram Stoker's Dracula" and "It Follows."  fans of war films have "The Thin Red Line" to look forward to, and action enthusiasts can enjoy Arnold Schwarzenegger in the meta action comedy "Last Action Hero."

1980s comedy enthusiasts have a great time in the early days of the month, as the Bill Murray-Harold Ramis comedy "Stripes" premieres on Netflix. Of course, there are also plenty of requisite seasonal offerings. In fact, if you want to go truly all in, mark November 14 in your calendar. The day ushers in the inevitable with an animated movie called "Mariah Carey's All I Want For Christmas Is You," which draws inspiration from its namesake song, which is once again about to dominate the airwaves in the coming weeks.

Last call for these departing titles

For all the new content Netflix is planning to give you over the course of November, it's also worth keeping a keen eye on the shows and movies that are about to leave the platform. There are plenty of classics and gems on Netflix at any given time, and there's a decent chance that something on your Netflix queue is on this month's list of departures. 

On the movie front, this is the perfect time to watch Heath Ledger's medieval epic "A Knight's Tale," or perhaps revisit Jack Black's "School of Rock."  If you feel like having a double feature of infamous sci-fi box office flops, you might want to grab a bowl of popcorn and sit down for a back-to-back showing of "Waterworld" and "Battlefield Earth."

If you're a fan of atmospheric British whodunits, you'll definitely want to check out the intense "Broadchurch," starring Academy Award winner Olivia Colman and David Tennant of "Jessica Jones" and "Doctor Who" fame. If you're into lighter but not necessarily any less moving fare, consider setting time aside for the six seasons of "Glee," or the 10 seasons of "Stargate SG-1." All of these shows, and many more, are set to depart in November 30.
