Everything Coming to Netflix in November 2021 (And Everything We’re Excited For)

 

The main cast of Netflix's live-action Cowboy Bebop series lounges on a yellow couch

Somehow we’re already going full speed ahead into November? With that autumnal month mere days away, we bring you what’s new and shiny on Netflix.

There are several shows and movies that we offer thanksgiving for. We can’t wait for Rebecca Hall’s directorial debut, Passing (11/10), starring Tessa Thompson and Ruth Negga. There’s also a Netflix “book club” series launching November 16th that will explore the adaptation of Passing from the 1929 novel by Nella Larsen.

The Cowboy Bebop (11/19) live-action series is finally here!!!

I’m (tentatively) anticipating tick, tick … BOOM! (11/19) starring Andrew Garfield. The musical-inspired movie is directed by Lin-Manuel Miranda and has been made to be even more of a biography about the life of RENT composer Jonathan Larson than Larson’s original show. I’m a fan of Larson’s tick, tick off-Broadway musical and am curious to see how they’re transitioning it to the screen.

We also have the exciting Western The Harder They Fall (11/3) starring no less than Jonathan Majors and Idris Elba. Oh, and also Regina King, Zazie Beetz, LaKeith Stanfield, and Delroy Lindo. This cast is unreal.

And for those who still celebrate, there’s Tiger King 2 (11/17).  If you must.

Speaking of celebrations, a host of new holiday movies are joining Netflix in November, including the romantic A Castle For Christmas (11/26). This one we’re into simply because it stars Brooke Shields and Cary Elwes, and centers around an American who dreams of buying her own Scottish castle with Cary Elwes as its grumpy (yet appealing) owner/Duke. Get in line, Brooke!

Our picks for titles we’re psyched to see are bolded and italicized.
