Every month, kawarthaNOW is the only local media source to bring you a list of what’s coming to Netflix Canada. Here are a few highlights of what’s coming to Netflix in November.
Two months after the death of Queen Elizabeth II, season five of the hit Netflix series The Crown arrives to depict the most turbulent era of her reign in the 1990s, including 1992 — the year the Queen described as the “annus horribilus” — when Prince Andrew divorced Sarah Ferguson, Princess Anne divorced Mark Phillips, Prince Charles and Princess Diana separated, one of the Queen’s favourite castles almost burned to the ground, and Prime Minister John Major announced plans to make the royals start paying income tax. Among other things, the series will also cover Diana’s infamous Panorama interview broadcast on the BBC in 1995.
Season five features all-new cast members, including Imelda Staunton as Queen Elizabeth, Jonathan Pryce as Prince Philip, Lesley Manville as Princess Margaret, Elizabeth Debicki as Princess Diana, Dominic West as Prince Charles, and Jonny Lee Miller as John Major. It premieres on Netflix on Wednesday, November 9. Following previous controversy about the historical accuracy of the series and calls for sensitivity given the Queen’s death, Netflix will be adding a disclaimer to season five indicating the series is a fictionalized portrayal based on historical events.

Also returning to Netflix is season three of Dead to Me, continuing the story of Jen (Christina Applegate) and Judy (Linda Cardellini), whose unlikely friendship began with a hit-and-run in season one and continues with another shocking crash. It comes to Netflix on Thursday, November 17th.
Wednesday is a new Netflix series from Tim Burton based on a character from The Addams Family, the early 20th-centry cartoon by Charles Addams that spawned multiple television series and films. Jenna Ortega stars as the smart and sarcastic Wednesday Addams, who investigates a murder spree while making new friends and foes as a student at Nevermore Academy. The supernaturally infused mystery series also stars Catherine Zeta-Jones, Luis Guzman, Gwendoline Christie, Christina Ricci and more. It debuts on Wednesday (of course), November 23rd.
With no apparent sense of irony, Netflix is also releasing the new series Blockbuster. After learning he is operating the last Blockbuster video store in America, Timmy and his staff employees — including his long-time crush Eliza (Melissa Fumero) — fight to stay relevant. The only way to succeed is to remind their community that they provide something big corporations can’t: human connection. Blockbuster premieres on Thursday, November 3rd.

From the creators of the Netflix German science fiction thriller series Dark comes the new Netflix mystery-horror series 1899, which tells the story of a group of multinational immigrants aboard a ship to the New World who sail into a nightmare when they encounter a second ship adrift on the open sea. It comes to Netflix on Thursday, November 17th.
Enola Holmes returns to solve another mystery in the Netflix film Enola Holmes 2, starring Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things) as the younger sister of the famous detective in a film based on the young adult fiction series of the same name by Nancy Springer. In the sequel, Enola takes on her first official case as a detective but, to solve the mystery of a missing girl, she’ll need help from friends and her brother Sherlock (Henry Cavill). Enola Holmes 2 premieres on Netflix on Friday, November 4.
The Netflix fantasy advanture film Slumberland, based on the comic strip Little Nemo in Slumberland by Winsor McCay and from the director of the Hunger Games, stars Jason Momoa as Flip, an eccentric outlaw on a mission to help a young girl (Marlow Barkley) travel through dreams and flee nightmares in the hopes of reuniting with her father. Following a limited release in theatres the previous week, Slumberland premieres on Netflix on Friday, November 18.

New Netflix reality series include the cooking show Snack Vs. Chef (Nov. 30), where 12 chefs complete to re-create classic snacks and invent their own original treats for a $50,000 prize, and Mind Your Manners (Nov. 16), where world-renowned Chinese etiquette teacher Sara Jane Ho promises to do for manners what Japanese consultant Marie Kondo did for organizing.
The Netflix documentary Pepsi, Where’s My Jet? tells the story of the soft drink brand’s 1996 advertising campaign called “Pepsi Stuff,” where you could collect points to purchase merchandise — including the tongue-in-cheek claim you could even purchase a Harrier jet. Pepsi execs assumed the astronomical “price” of the military plane was set high enough to indicate it was a joke, but college student John Leonard saw it as a challenge, and decided to call their bluff. Enlisting the help (and funding) of mountaineering buddy Todd Hoffman, Leonard hashed out a plan to score the grandest prize of all, becoming the hero of a new generation. Pepsi, Where’s My Jet? comes to Netflix on Thursday, November 17th.
Of course, Christmas is around the corner so Netflix is releasing the usual slew of holiday films, including Falling for Christmas (Nov. 10), about a spoiled heiress who lands in the cozy care of a down-on-his-luck widower and his daughter after losing her memory in a skiing accident, Christmas with You (Nov. 17), about a pop star seeking inspiration for a hit holiday song who grants a young fan’s Christmas wish to meet her and finds a shot at true love along the way, Christmas on Mistletoe Farm (Nov. 23), about a widowed father who makes a bumpy adjustment to village life after inheriting while his kids hatch a plan to stay there forever, and The Noel Diary (Nov. 24), about a novelist cleaning out his childhood home at Christmas who meets a woman searching for her birth mother.
