Here’s What’s Streaming on Netflix in November
Inject this Christmas content directly into my veins.
Time to take down your Halloween decorations and stash that candy in the freezer: November has arrived! And as this cursed year limps towards the finish line, all eyes are on the results of the presidential election. But too much cable news is bad for our brains, and even worse for our anxiety. Sometimes you just need to unplug from the relentless news cycle and curl up with some comfort television.
Luckily for us, Netflix is rolling out a big batch of holiday content designed to delight and distract us from the yawning hellmouth of this year. So bust out the holiday decorations and whip up some hot chocolate, even if it’s 85 degrees outside. You’ve earned it, buddy.
As always, we’ve bolded our top picks for November, based on our highly biased opinions. Let’s get to it!
