7 Best New Shows on Netflix in November 2022
November 15, 2022
Time has flown by, and before we know it, November has arrived and, with it, the Halloween season comes to an end. But that doesn’t mean Netflix doesn’t have plenty of new and intriguing options for you to check out.
November is on fire at Netflix
Netflix is back with a handful of programs in its latest season and another couple of completely fresh options to offer, whether you’re in the mood for comedy, horror, or just good old-fashioned horror.
They even present us with a little travel show if you need something completely different. Basically, there’s something for everyone in November, and here are seven of their top choices.
Blockbuster (Season 1)
For new generations, it’s probably strange to hear about it, but there was a time when there was a Blockbuster in every city, and it was quite a scene. However, with the emergence of a certain small company called Netflix, the franchise almost disappeared, and in fact, of all the stores there were in the country, there is now only one left.
A comedy created by Vanessa Ramos (known for writing about Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Superstore, and Cashing), Blockbuster is a series that tells us what it takes to keep this last store alive. The show stars Randall Park and Melissa Fumero with a great supporting cast including Tyler Alvarez, Olga Merediz.
Manifest (Season 4 – Volume 1)
This is a mind-blowing story about how mid-flight turbulence turns out to be a 5-year time jump. Then, when a flight lands in New York from Jamaica, the passengers are shocked to learn that they have been missing and presumed dead for five years.
So when they are forced to watch as their loved ones have believed them dead and have moved on with their lives, they decide to form a deep bond to try to find out what the heck happened.
The show had three successful seasons on NBC before Netflix rescued it for a two-part final season. This first part will feature 10 episodes, and Volume 2 will be released at a later date.
The Crown (Season 5)
The fifth season of The Crown returns and this time it will be Imelda Staunton who will wear the crown as the late Queen Elizabeth II. So, she and Jonathan Pryce will play the Queen and Prince Philip in the final two seasons of the show on Netflix.
Also, in this penultimate season, the story will move forward from where it left off after Charles ( Dominic West ) and Diana ( Elizabeth Debicki ) have married. This season will focus more on their tumultuous marriage and divorce in the 1990s.
Then, it’s easy to infer that this time around, the series will likely have a more somber tone with the recent death of Queen Elizabeth II in real life on September 8.
Down to Earth with Zac Efron (Season 2 – Down Under)
The second installment of “Down to Earth” will take us to Australia. In this travel documentary adventure, Zac Efron will take us around the world to see how different countries and cities are working on green and sustainable energy practices.
While the series has received mixed reviews, with some reports suggesting that Efron and his friend Darin Olein were promoting questionable science in some episodes, the former High School Musical star is so charming that he always manages to endear himself to the locals and seems to be really trying to learn, deep down.
On the other hand, the series is an exciting showcase of how other countries handle sustainable energy and food supplies, and by the looks of it, Efron seems born to be a travel show host, as he seems open to trying anything and adapts comfortably to any part of the world.
1899 (Season 1)
If you are a loyal follower of the Dark Style series (a 2018 hit), this story really is for you, because from the same creators comes a new horror mystery set just before the turn of the 20th century.
You see, 1899 by Jantje Friese and Baran Bo Odar is set on a ship heading to New York from London; everything seems normal until the ship meets another ship on the way, and that’s when their journey turns into a nightmare.
This time, Emily Beecham plays Maura Franklin, leading this cast of immigrants into a murderous riddle on the high seas. And if that wasn’t enough, the show will feature a number of European immigrants from various nations speaking their own languages on this ship as it heads into a thrilling mystery.
Dead to Me (Season 3)
Finally, the final season of the hit black comedy series is here and will hit the platform in mid-November. This time, Jen and Judy return for one final season as they try to move forward with their tumultuous friendship. After Jen (literally) got away with murder but Detective Perez gave her a surprising reprieve, she and Judy reconciled.
And although the plot then ended unexpectedly with an accident caused by Ben, they both seem to survive, but where do they go from here? There are so many questions that need to be answered in this season, and despite not being the perfect actresses, Christina and Linda are the most compelling leads to cap off this wild ride that is sadly coming to an end.
Wednesday (Season 1)
This is perhaps one of the most anticipated titles of November. The new interpretation of The Addams Family comes to Netflix in the form of a new show that will be told from the point of view of Wednesday (Jenna Ortega), the teenage daughter of Morticia (Catherine Zeta-Jones) and Gomez (Luis Guzman), as she deals with teenage angst at Nevermore Academy.
Fred Armisen will play Fester, and even on Wednesday, Christina Ricci will make a guest appearance. As you can see, it will undoubtedly be a show full of surprises that will help you relive the Addams family’s best moments. This opening season will have eight episodes, four of which are directed by co-creator Tim Burton.
