What’s coming soon to Netflix UK in November 2021?
James R | On 29, Oct 2021
Netflix is stepping up its feature film game this November with the arrival of Western remix The Harder They Fall, surprising documentary A Cop Movie, Halle Berry’s directorial debut Bruised, Rebecca Hall’s directorial debut Passing and Lin-Manuel Miranda’s directorial debut tick, tick…BOOM!, as well as new blockbuster Red Notice.
But with Christmas on the horizon, it’s also time to unwrap Netflix’s latest festive originals, including The Princess Switch 3 and A Castle for Christmas – which are joined by the return of Love Actually and the debut of Aardman’s Robin Robin.
Netflix hasn’t forgotten about its original series, though, with Narcos: Mexico and Big Mouth both returning, alongside Star Trek: Discovery and new Korean thriller Hellbound – plus its potentially divisive remake of Cowboy Bebop. All that plus an animated show called Dogs in Space? There’s no risk of running out of things to watch – although with a new season of Selling Sunset and Tiger King on the way, it’s more a question of whether you’ll be able to resist their pull to watch the rest of it.
Here’s what’s coming soon to Netflix UK in November 2021:
