This week's list of what's new on Netflix shows that the horror villains have been defeated — for now. Yes, as we stride into November, Netflix is back to normal, with a whole lot of licensed shows and movies, a funny-looking new Original series, the return of a canceled NBC show and a sequel starring two actors from its biggest shows. It's all the start of a strong month for Netflix — which I wouldn't recommend canceling. Instead, I'd cancel HBO Max and Hulu.

Yes, in the time Millie Bobby Brown and Henry Cavill didn't spend thinking about Stranger Things season 5 and The Witcher season 3 gossip (and the news that The Witcher season 4 replaces Cavill with Liam Hemsworth), the two found time to work on Enola Holmes 2. The story this time sees Enola (Brown) striking out on her own in a new detective agency, only to find that people think she's too young. Of course, she does get her own case — and it just so happens to intertwine with the one Sherlock (Cavill) is on. It's one of the biggest new movies to watch this week online.

And if you're already done with our list of the new movies and shows from this weekend, Netflix is adding much more as well. Since this week has the start of a month, we get a bunch of new licensed additions, including the first three seasons of Key & Peele. Netflix is also adding Blockbuster, a comedy about the last Blockbuster Video store in America, starring Randall Park (Always Be My Maybe, Fresh Off The Boat), Melissa Fumero (Brooklyn Nine-Nine) and J.B. Smoove (Curb Your Enthusiasm). 

The arrival of Manifest season 4 part 1 sees Netflix donning its superhero cape again, having saved this mystery box series after its NBC cancelation. 

But that's what's already come out, here's what's new on Netflix this week:
