Streaming Calendar What to watch in november netflix amazon prime

These days it feels like a real challenge to keep up with what’s dropping when on which platform, with new show announcements popping up all the time. That said, November promises to be yet another exciting month in the world of streaming with a wide range of stories. From Martin Scorsese‘s magnum opus to more Little Things, here are our picks of what’s releasing this month across platforms.

Netflix

Drive

When: November 1st 

The biggest Bollywood film to have got a straight-to-Netflix release comes from Dharma Productions with an Italian Job-style heist flick which stars Sushant Singh Rajput and Jacqueline Fernandez. Why Drive has been relegated to streaming remains to be seen. Either way, expect lots of cars and hordes of attractive people.

The Irishman

When: November 27th

Arguably the most talked-about Netflix original film ever, The Irishman is a testament to the platform’s commitment to auteurs and cinema and putting its money where its mouth is for projects the studio system has chosen to disregard. The 3-hour plus magnum opus from the Martin Scorsese reunites acting legends Robert DeNiro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci and we certainly can’t wait.

Little Things: Season 3

When: November 9th

Dice Media’s beloved teen romantic drama continues it’s run in the big leagues following last season’s Netflix acquisition. Everyone’s favourite couple Kavya and Dhruv return once again for more feels, fights and giving us major #CoupleGoals.

House Arrest

When: November 15th

The latest Netflix Indian original film stars Mirzapur couple Ali Fazal and Shriya Pilgaonkar in an unlikely comedy about a man who wants to be cut off from the world in his solitary apartment (think Trapped with a comedic twist). Enter a journalist, played by Pilgaonkar, who helps open his mind to new possibilities. Let’s just hope this does something for Netflix India’s thus far forgettable track record of original films.

The Crown Season 3

When: November 17th 

The runaway success that few saw coming, The Crown returns to give us a further peek behind the luxury curtains of the elusive British monarchy.

The Brand New Show

When: November 

Netflix launches a comedy variety show with a bunch of cool young creators exclusively for …YouTube? No doubt aimed at promoting their new shows, the SNL style comedy show promises a new host every episode providing a mix of stand up, sketches and interviews. An interesting idea and we’re certainly on board. Anything to up the current YouTube promotion game which largely consists of repetitive ‘If Ganesh Gaitonde was an engineer’-style sketches.
