The nights are getting longer, so what better time to review Netflix’s new offerings and see what you could be watching while you’re curled up on the couch?

New Netflix TV shows for November

One of the most-talked about shows to come to Netflix in November is The Crown. In it, Claire Foy plays Queen Elizabeth II in her first few years on the throne, with Matt Smith playing Prince Philip. The first series has 10 episodes, so it’s a nice length to get stuck in to.

Netflix has secured the exclusive rights to stream ABC show Designated Survivor in the UK and Ireland. The first episode comes to Netflix on 17 November.

This show, about the rise of a low-level cabinet employee who becomes President of the United States after the rest of the administration is killed, stars Kiefer Sutherland. It’s already getting rave reviews in the US, so definitely worth a watch.

Any Gilmore Girls fans won’t need to be told that Netflix is bringing us Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life on 25 November.

All four episodes - one covering each season of the year - will be added to the platform at the same time, so a binge-watch might be in order. You’ll be up-to-date will all of the happenings in Stars Hollow in no time!

More interested in movies?

If you’ve had your fill of box sets and you’d rather settle down to a movie in the evening time, you’ll have loads of new viewing options in November.

Safe Haven, based on the novel by Nicholas Sparks (of ‘The Notebook’ fame) will satisfy all of the romantics out there, while Elizabethtown, starring Orlando Bloom and Kirsten Dunst, is one for any fans of dark comedy.

Anyone who likes crime movies might be interested in neo-noir crime thriller Dead Man Down, or true-crime story Capote, starring Philip Seymour Hoffman.

Meanwhile, comedy fans should check out Anger Management, starring Adam Sandler and Jack Nicholson, or comedy-action film Bad Company, with Anthony Hopkins.

And, if you haven’t got enough of horror after Hallowe’en, supernatural horror Mirrors might be the one for you.

Titles for the kids

There are also plenty of additions for the younger members of the family.

The first one is Netflix’s new show World of Winx, which is a spin-off series of Winx Club. This new show follows the Winx fairies as they visit Earth to scout for a talent show called WOW! The first series has 13 22-minute episodes, and a second series has also been confirmed.

In terms of movies, Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked will be added to the platform from the 1st, as will The Dark Crystal, a 1982 fantasy adventure film directed by Jim Henson and Frank Oz (creators of The Muppets).

Recent shows you may have missed

It’s getting increasingly difficult to keep on top of all of the new releases each month - as there are tonnes. So if you’re not up to date with your Netflix watching, you might want to catch up on some of the following:

  • Stranger Things;
  • Narcos;
  • Black Mirror;
  • House of Cards; or
  • Orange is the New Black.
