November is here, if you can believe it. It’s a month of turkey dinners (and leftovers), ridiculous sales, and most importantly, appreciating what we have. For this week, at least, it’s about what’s new on Netflix this week. As usual, we’re here to let you know what’s worth checking out so you can build a full plan to tackle new shows and movies before the in-laws start shuffling in. 

This week’s major standout is the streaming debut of Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, the animated blockbuster sequel that dazzled audiences this summer. 

Also new on Netflix is the film All the Light We Cannot See, an adaptation of Anthony Doerr’s harrowing Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. It follows a man and his blind daughter as they work their way through German-occupied France, determined to keep a legendary diamond out of the Nazis’ hands. 

This week's new on Netflix slate also brings the return of reality series Selling Sunset with its seventh season. The brawls are bigger, the real estate is hotter, and the girls are just as dramatic as ever before. This time around, it looks like we’re in for a messy showdown between Chrishell and Nicole, and who-knows-what else. 

Below, check out our day-by-day rundown of what's new on Netflix this week. 

New on Netflix this week: Top picks

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse

This sequel to 2018's Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is nothing short of an eye-popping spectacle. After a heartfelt reunion with Gwen Stacy (Hailee Steinfeld), Brooklyn-based Spider-Man Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) is thrust across dimensions, meeting an array of Spider-People, all tasked with the job of protecting the Multiverse. As the heroes converge, they grapple with disagreements on how to tackle a looming threat, putting Miles at odds with his new allies. He's forced to re-evaluate what it means to be a hero so he can save his friends and loved ones without causing a rift between the multiple timelines.

Locked In

In this psychological thriller, Lina (Rose Williams) finds herself trapped in a tumultuous relationship with her fragile and damaged mother-in-law, Katherine (Famke Janssen). The situation escalates when an illicit affair plunges Lina into a clandestine dangerous world where it looks like Katherine is out to get her — and destroy everything she's worked for. But as is the case with these types of movies, the plot looks to twist and turn until it's unrecognizable, and we're left asking who the victim actually is: Lina or Katherine?

They've set their sights on one last, major heist: The Grande Odalisque painting in the confines of the Louvre. When they quickly realize this heist is more than they bargained for, they round up a band of friends to help them pull it off. That includes an arms dealer wanted by a drug cartel, and a stunt motorcyclist slash boxer with a penchant for tranquilizer darts. Together, the trio head out to rip off the painting, but soon find themselves doing battle with the French Special Forces.

Selling Sunset season 7

Get ready for a whirlwind of drama, luxury, and high-stakes tension as Selling Sunset season 7 debuts. With Bre and Chelsea at a frosty standstill and Nicole and Chrishell on the brink of a legal showdown, the O Group is more volatile than ever. Chrishell, contemplating a life-altering decision to join G Flip in Australia, finds herself increasingly isolated, her friendships with Mary, Jason, and others hanging by a thread. This season, it looks like there's some sort of sinister plot brewing in the shadows, while Chrishell's emotional turmoil takes center stage. From the trailer, it looks like Chrishell and Nicole will end up locked in a fierce verbal battle, setting the tone for a season where alliances are definitely about to be tested. And, oh yeah, real estate.

Insidious: The Red Door

The Insidious franchise has been spinning its wheel for almost a decade, but after a couple of mostly uneventful prequels, Insidious: The Red Door (which is the fifth installment in the series) is the long-requested direct sequel to 2013's Insidious: Chapter Two. We pick up with the Lambert family roughly nine years after the events of the aforementioned predecessor. Josh Lambert (Patrick Wilson, who also makes his directorial debut here) is now divorced from his wife Renai (Rose Byrne) and has had the memories of his previous possession suppressed.  Their college-bound son Dalton (Ty Simpkins) has also had his memory wiped in order to forget the trauma of his childhood, but when demons of the past reappear, the duo are dragged back into the nightmare world of The Further and must confront their family curse once and for all. - Rory Mellon
