It’s all about the new seasons of fan-favourite series and brand-new films on Netflix this month. The holidays are starting early with Christmas-themed Klaus, featuring the voices of Jason Schwartzman, JK Simmons and Rashida Jones, and the Rob Lowe rom-com set and filmed in Lusaka, Zambia. The Irishman by Martin Scorsese is being released in cinemas in the US before finally arriving on your screens on 27 November, and we’re in for a royal treat when Olivia Coleman takes on the role of Queen Elizabeth II in the latest season of The Crown.
Here are our highlights of the best series and movies on Netflix South Africa coming in November, followed by our listings in date order, with Plum Picks in bold.
Atypical S3 | 1 November 2019
As Sam heads into his first year of college, he grapples with new challenges, from making friends to managing his schedule.
Holiday in the Wild | 1 November 2019
When Manhattanite Kate Conrad’s (Kristin Davis) husband jilts her, she goes on their “second honeymoon” by herself – an African safari. During a detour through Zambia, she helps her pilot Derek Holliston (Rob Lowe) rescue an orphaned baby elephant. Far from the modern luxuries of home, Kate falls in love with her new surroundings – and with the man who shared her journey.
The Devil Next Door | 4 November 2019
A Cleveland grandfather stands accused of an Earth-shattering crime – being the infamous Nazi concentration camp guard known as Ivan the Terrible.
The End of the F***ing World S2 | 5 November 2019
Two years after James and Alyssa’s hair-raising road trip, a woman obsessed with the man they killed is released from prison and sets out for revenge.
Greenleaf S4 | 6 November 2019
The Greenleafs must stand together at a critical moment as a new ministry takes control of Calvary. But buried secrets threaten to shatter alliances.
Klaus (2019) | 15 November 2019
When Jesper (Jason Schwartzman) distinguishes himself as the postal academy’s worst student, he is stationed on a frozen island above the Arctic Circle, where the feuding locals hardly exchange words, let alone letters. Jesper is about to give up when he finds an ally in local teacher Alva (Rashida Jones), and discovers Klaus (JK Simmons), a mysterious carpenter who lives alone in a cabin full of handmade toys. These unlikely friendships return laughter to Smeerensburg, forging a new legacy of generous neighbours, magical lore and stockings hung by the chimney with care. An animated holiday comedy directed by Despicable Me co-creator Sergio Pablos, Klaus co-stars Joan Cusack, Will Sasso and Norm Macdonald.
The Crown S3 | 17 November 2019
While England in the Swinging Sixties confronts an economic downturn and fierce nationalism, the royals are scrutinised as aristocratic freeloaders.
Final Space S2 | 24 November 2019
Gary and his intrepid crew scour the galaxy for Quinn while dealing with awkward family reunions, deadly space regattas and oddly happy fluffballs.
The Irishman (2019) | 27 November 2019
Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci star in Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman, an epic saga of organised crime in post-war America told through the eyes of World War II veteran Frank Sheeran, a hustler and hitman who worked alongside some of the most notorious figures of the 20th Century. Spanning decades, the film chronicles one of the greatest unsolved mysteries in American history, the disappearance of legendary union boss Jimmy Hoffa, and offers a monumental journey through the hidden corridors of organised crime: its inner workings, rivalries and connections to mainstream politics.
Broken | 27 November 2019
From the creators of the critically acclaimed series Rotten and Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown, Netflix’s new investigative documentary series Broken exposes the unknown fraud, corruption and negligence behind some of the world’s most popular merchandise. Launching just days before Black Friday, the biggest shopping event of the year, Broken takes on four big consumer arenas including cosmetics, e-cigarettes, furniture and plastics.
Sugar Rush Christmas | 29 November 2019
It’s everything you love about Sugar Rush with a holly jolly holiday twist in this Christmas-themed spin on competitive baking.
