We’ve finally hit full Pumpkin Spice Mode, and fall has arrived in all its bulky sweatered glory. With the yearly time change scheduled for November 3, we can look forward to earlier nights. And that means more reasons to kick back and find out what’s coming to Netflix in November 2019.
And we hope they’re up to the challenge of keeping our attention. After all, Apple TV Plus and Disney Plus both launch their new streaming services in November. And with Christmas on the horizon, Disney is sure to dominate a lot of the family entertainment market.
But not to worry. We may find the streaming service upping its game for the winter TV binging season. Let’s take a look at what they have planned to meet the competition.
Notable Originals Coming to Netflix in November 2019
Not everyone lives and breathes Disney, so luckily, there’s plenty for adults coming to Netflix in November 2019. And for those of us who love historical drama, it’s going to be a very good month.
Shakespeare fans will rejoice with this story of King Henry V that promises to be a bit easier to follow. If you love historical drama, you’ll need to catch “The King” when it’s coming to Netflix in November 2019.
Starring Timothée Chalamet as the eponymous royal, and a surprise appearance by Robert Pattinson of “Twilight Fame” as the Dauphin (heir apparent prince of France), this production looks pretty epic.
If you’ve sat enthralled by the Kenneth Brannagh 1989 take of “Henry V,” you’ll be a bit bemused by this production’s take on the story. They present young Henry as a “wayward prince,” reluctant to step into his father’s shoes.
And even though Shakespeare’s thoroughly fictional character Falstaff makes an appearance in the movie, it will be interesting to see if it works.
How this approach will compare to history’s (and Shakespeare’s) view of Henry V as a solid and dedicated servant and soldier of the realm is anyone’s guess.
“The King” debuts on Netflix on November 1.
‘The Crown,’ Season 3
I’m really going to miss Claire Foy. She’s been utterly riveting and regal as Queen Elizabeth II. And she even managed to stand up to John Lithgow onscreen, no matter how much scenery he ate as Winston Churchill.
Of course, the Queen must naturally age. She’s only human, after all. But the producers of “The Crown” have made up for our loss of Foy and Doctor Who alum Matt Smith as her prince consort.
Season 3 is coming to Netflix in November 2019, featuring none other than the wonderful and Oscar-winning Olivia Colman in the lead role as Her Majesty.
You may have also seen her as D.S. Miller on “Broadchurch,” one of the best and most riveting British crime dramas on Netflix.
While I haven’t had a chance to see her yet in that winning role, I’m excited to see her play one of the world’s most steadfast and sympathetic monarchs.
Tobias Menzies steps in as Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. Menzies has done well for himself, playing Edmure Tully in “Game of Thrones,” and Frank Randal in “Outlander.”
And last, but certainly not least, we get the irrepressible Helena Bonham Carter as Princess Margaret and Gillian Anderson as Margaret Thatcher.
Season 3 of “The Crown” hits the stream on November 17.
Notable Family Titles Added
With the winter holidays approaching, be prepared for plenty of family-friendly titles coming to Netflix in November 2019.
While the streaming network has added plenty of winter holiday movies and specials to the lineup, this one really stands out.
This beautifully animated special follows the story of Jesper, the worst student at the postal academy, stationed above the Arctic Circle.
When tensions in the small town become unwieldy, Jesper finds a friend in Klaus, the toymaker who lives in a remote cabin. Also on his side is a local school teacher, Alva. They band together to bring a new legacy of magic and friendship to their feuding neighbors.
Classic Flicks Coming to Netflix in November 2019
As well as great new content, you can find a host of older films joining the stream this month.
‘Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas’
This 1998 comedy features Johnny Depp in the lead role and Terry Gilliam in the director’s chair. Based on the Hunter S. Thompson book of the same name, Gilliam wrote the screenplay and brought it to life on the screen.
This ultimate road trip movie follows a fictionalized version of the gonzo journo as he takes off across the country with his crazy lawyer played by Benicio Del Toro, as they search for the American dream in a red convertible.
This classic musical from 1978 has stood the test of time, and it’s a fan favorite even now thanks to its catchy musical numbers.
While the movie is filled with many flaws, people still love it because of its tried-and-true Broadway-style material, with comic songs, big dance numbers, and romantic ballads. After all, the musical stage version first hit the boards in 1971, and it has enjoyed revival after revival around the world ever since.
Much of the plot is so not politically correct by today’s standards, and features Olivia Newton-John as Sandy, a “good girl.” The leading man is John Travolta, the “bad boy.” But the plots never made any sense in opera, so why should its musical descendants have to?
But “Grease” is funny, kind of dirty, very silly, and the tunes are awfully catchy. Overall, it’s a fun flick for a dull, gray winter day.
“Grease” joins the stream on November 1.

Last Chance to Watch on Netflix in November 2019
Every month, content contracts expire. So, as well as losing many of the movies Netflix carries, it’s also losing television shows and series. And there are a few well worth making time to see before the end of the month.
It seems like Netflix is losing quite a lot of content that has formed the backbone of the service. Some of the best titles leaving Netflix in November include travelogues “Stephen Fry in America” and “Wild France with Ray Mears.”
Notable Titles Leaving Netflix in November 2019
If you haven’t had a chance to see these notable movies and television shows on Netflix, now’s your last chance.
Here are a few notable titles to watch before they leave the stream.
This unique and touching dramatic mini-series has been one of my favorites since I first discovered it on Netflix.
Like many police procedurals, it features a “brilliant” investigator on the trail of a soulless murderer.
But in this case, the detective in question, River, is far from perfect. In fact, he’s walking the tight edge of complete madness because the victims of the crimes he investigates haunt him until he can solve the murder.
To make things worse, the murderer he’s chasing is the one that killed his partner, the flirty and fun “Stevie” Stevenson.
And they’re quite the pair, as her specter hangs over the investigation.
It’s difficult to express the sheer charm of this TV mini-series without spoiling the best bits. It’s not really a ghost story – the spirits of the wronged dead exist more in his mind than they do in the ethereal plane.
But as River discovers more about Stevie’s murder, he discovers her darkest secrets – and more about himself.
Truly heartbreaking, and a must-see.
“River” drops from Netflix on November 1.
‘Empire of the Tsars’
History buffs normally know Lucy Worsley more for her English history documentaries But this time, she’s bringing her enthusiasm to explore Russian history and the story of the Romanovs.
Worsley, the Chief Curator of the charity, Historic Royal Palaces, knows how to get an audience engaged in the stories behind the names and dates of history.
In this documentary series, she follows the fascinating tale of the Romanov dynasty, the family that ruled Russia with utter and complete authority from 1613 until 1917.
If you want to understand modern Russia and the 20th century Soviet Union, this documentary about the Tsars will illuminate much.
