These are the Best New Shows to Watch on Netflix in November
Have you caught up on all of your favourite series and are eagerly awaiting some fresh new content to fill your Sunday afternoons and nights after work? Luckily for you, our go-to content streaming spot Netflix is constantly serving the goods when it comes to original comedies, thought-provoking dramas and downright terrifying true crime documentaries. We're sure you'll find a new favourite from this list of the best new shows and movies on Netflix this month.
The Devil Next Door
Known as Ivan the Terrible, a Ukranian-American grandfather is accused of working as a guard for horrific Nazi extermination camps during World War II. This five-part series will take you directly into the courtroom where you'll hear survivors of the Treblinka death camp relive their harrowing stories.
Living With Yourself
One of Netflix's most exciting new series is Living With Yourself—a drama starring Paul Rudd as Miles, a man who finds that he has been replaced by a clone that represents a better version of himself after undergoing a mysterious treatment at a mall. We love everything Rudd does, and we're sure you'll also find this eight-episode series to be binge-worthy.
Surviving R. Kelly
This documentary comes off the back of several highly publicised allegations of sexual and emotional abuse against rapper R. Kelly. In this series, you'll be confronted with testimonials from six individual stories and how these victims' lives have been impacted as a result.
When we heard our faves Gwyneth Paltrow, Jessica Lange and Ben Platt had joined forces in this new Netflix series, we knew we'd be hooked. The story follows student Payton Hobart as he works towards his ultimate goal of being the president of the USA. First, he will have to win over his high school's student body and navigate the treacherous waters of teenage emotions and ongoing tribulations.
Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Love food? Love celebs? Chef David Chang combines the best of both worlds in his new show where he travels to far-flung destinations to indulge in local cuisine with some of our favourite personalities. Catch Chrissy Teigen in Marrakesh, then fly to Cambodia to see Kate McKinnon snack on tarantulas.
Another star-studded addition to the Netflix lineup this month is The King, where we see Timothée Chalamet taking on the character of Hal, the newly-throned King of England and his struggle to navigate politics and the war his late father left behind for him to clean up. Notable co-stars include Robert Pattinson and Joel Edgerton.
If you're anything like us, you've been holding out for a Breaking Bad movie from the moment the final episode aired in 2013. Thankfully, director Vince Gilligan and our very own Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) are providing us with a finale to end all finales. This two-hour action-packed movie will pick up from where the original series left off, as Jesse escapes his neo-Nazi abductors in a 1978 Chevy.
The Mortified Guide
Part documentary, part comedy, The Mortified Guide tackles one of our biggest fears—reading our personal diary in front of an audience. A group of brave people are invited on to the stage to read out humiliating (and hilarious) tales of their past, covering all topics from family to love to fitting in. Once you get over the second-hand embarrassment, you'll relate to these common pitfalls of growing up.
Inside Bill's Brain: Decoding Bill Gates
His name is often referenced in song lyrics, television sitcoms and pop culture generally, but how much do we actually know about the billionaire co-founder of Microsoft? This easy to digest three-part interview series takes a look into Bill Gate's life to uncover his childhood, his extremely successful career and his true life's work improving the lives of others.
