New month, new things to watch online. Popular series return and long awaited movies release this month. Here’s the round-up of what’s new on Netflix in November.
The King (November 1)
Timothée Chalamet in an English period drama – need we say more? The talented young actor returns to our screens as King Henry V in ‘The King’. The story follows the tumultuous journey of the royal who almost escaped the palace life, but was forced to return to it after his father’s demise. The film follows the new king as he finds his way through the war and the chaotic politics left behind by his father as well as his personal relationship with John Falstaff (played by Joel Edgerton), the ageing knight who can’t let go of his love for alcohol. It is, however, only loosely based on real life events and leans more on Shakespearean plays for its setting.
Queer Eye Japan (November 1)
Living up to its tagline, ‘More than a makeover’, Queer Eye’s latest trailer already has fans tearing up. The Fab 5 have come up with a special season and are headed to Japan this time. In their endeavour to connect cultures, each episode promises an emotional roller coaster ride with an equal amount of sass.
Patriot Act (November 10)
Volume 5 of the hugely popular ‘Patriot Act’ with Hasan Minhaj is set to come out this month. The trailer shows him touching upon the topics such as Americans’ love for suing, public transport, cops, medical care, and Canada. As his previous episodes have proven, you’re likely to get hooked by the witticisms and poignancy of his narrative.
Little Things (November 10)
Season 3 of the series will follow Kavya (Mithila Palkar) and Dhruv (Dhruv Sehgal) exploring a long distance relationship. As Dhruv moves away for work, Kavya discovers her own independence and grows closer with her family. Their relationship will face a test of ‘will they or won’t they survive’ in this season.
The Crown (November 17)
One of the most-awaited series, The Crown returns with Season 3 and a time leap. Due to the change in timeline, there’s an entirely new cast this season. While Olivia Colman will replace Claire Foy as Queen Elizabeth II, Helena Bonham Carter will play Princess Margaret. Josh O’ Connor plays Prince Charles, and Tobias Menzies is Prince Philip. The new season will trace the changing times in Britain, how the modernity affects the monarchy, and the upheavals in personal lives of the royals.
