The Crown: Season 3

The Crown returns for a third season, with Olivia Colman taking over the role as Queen Elizabeth and Helena Bonham Carter succeeding Vanessa Kirby as Princess Margaret. Frustration and resentment from Princess Margaret towards Queen Elizabeth reaches a breaking point, while the contentious relationship between Prince Charles (Josh O’Connor) and Camilla (Emerald Fennell) gives rise to further conflicts. Premiers November 17.

The Irishman

Director Martin Scorsese reunites with Robert De Niro in The Irishman for the first time since Casino in 1995. Frank Sheeran (Robert De Niro), high official and hitman, recounts his years as a war veteran as he mulls over the mysterious disappearance of his good friend Jimmy Hoffa (Al Pacino) back in 1975. With a runtime of 210 minutes, prepare for a phenomenal gangster epic jam-packed with violence, crime and humour. Premiers November 27.

Queer Eye: We’re in Japan!

Queer Eye takes a significant turn across the Pacific Ocean for a semi-season in Japan. The Fab Five take their message of self-care and compassion to four Japanese men and women, with the help of model and actress Kiko Mizuhara and comedian Naomi Watanabe. Heartwarming yet comical and amusing, watch along as the Fab Five navigate the cultural waters of Japan with grace and understanding. Premiers November 1.

The King

Hal (Timothée Chalamet) is a headstrong prince and reluctant heir to the throne. Having turned his back on his royal duties at a young age, Hal is forced to take the throne as king following his tyrannical father’s sudden death. Surrounded by the mess of political chaos and war that his father left behind, Hal must carefully navigate these waters, while maintaining emotional ties to the past with close-friend and mentor, alcoholic John Falstaff (Joel Edgerton). The film also stars Lily-Rose Depp. Premiers November 1.

Grease

A beloved classic, Grease makes its Netflix debut this November. Sandy (Olivia Newton-John) and Danny (John Travolta) must reconfigure their relationship in the context of high school, following what was thought to be a one-off summer fling. Leather-clad Danny leads his gang the T-birds and wholesome Sandy stands with The Pink Ladies, while both try to be like the other to be more compatible together. This singing and dancing bonanza is a classic musical that has stood the test of time. Premiers November 1.
