New on Netflix: November 2023: Top Picks

All the Light We Cannot See 

Based on the international best-selling novel by Anthony Doerr, All the Light We Cannot See is a sweeping drama set during World War II. It centers on two characters: Marie-Laure (Aria Mia Loberti) and Werner (Louis Hofmann). Marie-Laure is a blind French girl who takes shelter at her uncle’s house in Saint-Malo after Paris is invaded by German forces, and Werner is a highly intelligent but naive German boy with a talent for repairing radios. In ordinary circumstances, these two people would never meet, but the brutal conflict sees their paths collide in ways that are surprising and heartbreaking. Set across four episodes, All the Light We Cannot See will be a must-watch for readers of Doerr’s acclaimed novel.  

Premieres Nov. 2 on Netflix.

Selling Sunset Season 7

You might think that after so many years of non-stop drama, real estate agents of The Oppenheim Group might have finally found a way to work in harmony. But you’d be wrong. As the trailer for Selling Sunset Season 7 displays, the O Group is about to weather another storm of office politics, constantly shifting alliances and a housing market that has never been more cutthroat. This time the stakes are even higher as the agents compete for a jaw-dropping new listing and some old friendships are tested. As series regular Chrishell Stause declares “The gloves are coming off” this season, so expect explosive arguments, heated encounters and some shocking revelations. And in between all the drama, they might even sell some houses. 

Premieres Nov. 3 on Netflix.


Sylvester Stallone has always been an underdog. Growing up his love of cinema was a way to escape his difficult childhood, and even as he got older he never lost his scrappy spirit. He’s spent the last 50 years entertaining legions of fans through his beloved characters and legendary Hollywood franchise, from Rocky to Rambo. Even when facing countless knockbacks, Sly has always pushed forward and this documentary tells the behind-the-scenes story of his journey and how it's reflected in the characters he’s brought to the big screen. This retrospective doc offers unmatched insight into Sly’s life and career with input from the main himself and the people who know him best. A true must-watch for anybody with a fondness for 80s action stars, or a desire to see the underdog succeed.  

Premieres Nov. 3 on Netflix.

The Killer

David Fincher, the critically acclaimed auteur behind the likes of Seven, Fight Club and Gone Girl, returns to the thriller genre in The Killer. This new Netflix Original has generated plenty of buzz already and sees Michael Fassbender step into the eponymous role as an emotionless assassin. The methodical hitman is thrown into an international manhunt after a job gone wrong, and forced to battle his employers, he must grapple with his own inner demons in an increasingly complex mission that he insists isn’t personal. With Fincher behind the camera expect a slick and stylish thriller that will keep you hooked until the very end. Plus, with Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross on the music, it’ll sound as good as it looks.   

Premieres Nov. 10 on Netflix.

The Crown Season 6 Part 1 

It’s the beginning of the end for The Crown this month as the hugely popular drama kicks off the first part of its sixth and final season. Four episodes will premiere on Thursday, Nov. 16 and these will follow Princess Diana (Elizabeth Debicki) in the final weeks of her life leading up to her death in August 1997. As her relationship with Dodi Fayed (Khalid Abdalla) develops, the paparazzi's interest in the so-called “people’s princess” only intensifies. The infamous Paris car crash shocked the world, and there’s been much speculation as to how The Crown’s creator Peter Morgan will balance being respectful to the real-life tragedy while also wringing as much drama as possible from the events. We’ll shortly have an answer.  

Premieres Nov. 16 on Netflix.

Best. Christmas. Ever! 

Charlotte (Heather Graham) and Jackie (Brandy Norwood) are former childhood friends, but now only stay in contact via a boastful holiday newsletter that Jackie sends every year to a dissatisfied Charlotte. After fate brings the two back together, and forces them to spend the festive season together, Charlotte becomes obsessed with proving that her friend’s life is not as perfect as she portrays. With her reluctant husband (Jason Biggs) in tow, Charlotte’s mission threatens to derail everybody's Christmas with predictably comedic results. This glossy holiday movie should be a treat for the whole family this Christmas.  

Premieres Nov. 16 on Netflix.

Scott Pilgrim Takes Off

2010’s Scott Pilgrim vs, the World was a box office disappointment, but over the last decade, it’s developed a cult following and has stuck around in the pop culture lexicon. While a proper sequel is highly unlikely, this month Netflix are offering up the next best thing: An animated series with pretty much the entire cast reprising their roles. That means Michael Cera is back as Scott Pilgrim while Mary Elizabeth Winstead returns as Ramona Flowers. Other notable returning voices include Anna Kendrick, Chris Evans, Kieran Culkin and Brie Larson. The limited series will span eight episodes and original graphic novel author Bryan Lee O’Malley is acting as showrunner. Plus, movie director Edgar Wright is on board as a producer. For Scott Pilgrim fans this is pretty much a dream come true; let’s hope it lives up to the hype.

Premieres Nov. 17 on Netflix

Squid Game: The Challenge

While the wait for new Squid Game season 2 details continues, Netflix is offering up Squid Game: The Challenge in the interim. This gameshow spin on the juggernaut South Korean drama, sees contests compete in recreations of the deadly schoolground games from the original series. Of course, eliminated participants won’t be executed here, but don’t think the stakes won’t still be pretty high. 456 players will be competing to win $4.56m, which is the largest single cash prize in reality TV history. While this goofy gameshow probably isn’t going to fully satisfy those desperate for the next installment of the Squid Game universe, it does look pretty darn entertaining. Just be sure to note that episodes of Squid Game: The Challenge will be released weekly rather than the entire season dropping all at once.

Premieres Nov. 22 on Netflix.   

Virgin River Season 5 Part 2 

Virgin River wraps up its fifth season this month and after the revelations in the finale of the Season 5 Part 1 finale, it’s fair to say that longtime viewers are desperate to find out who Mel and Joey’s mom has been receiving love letters from, and if we’ll finally learn the identity of Mel’s biological dad (perhaps the two mystery figures are one and the same?). It’s also been confirmed that Virgin River Season 5 Part 2 will include two holiday-themed episodes, so it’s set to be the perfect watch now that the evenings are getting a little longer and the festive season is almost upon us. Of course, it's been announced that Virgin River will also get at least one more season so don’t expect all the unanswered questions to be resolved in these new episodes. 

Premieres Nov. 30 on Netflix.
