What to stream in November 2021?

Editor’s note: We’ll be updating this list of what to stream across different services every month as new TV shows and movies make it to streaming services.


The Harder They Fall

Where: Netflix
Release date: November 3

Historically, a huge number of American cowboys were Black. You wouldn’t necessarily know that from watching westerns though. Netflix’s The Harder they Fall shifts the focus onto stories that haven’t often been told. In it, a cowboy and his crew are out for revenge when a notorious crime boss gets out of prison. It’s the feature film debut of singer-songwriter and music producer Jeymes Samuel, and it features an all-star cast including Jonathan Majors, Idris Elba, Zazie Beetz, Regina King, Delroy Lindo, Lakeith Stanfield, RJ Cyler, Danielle Deadwyler, Edi Gathegi, and Deon Cole.


Finch

Where: Apple TV Plus
Release date: November 5

Apple TV Plus continues to build out its film slate with Finch, starring Tom Hanks. In a not-too-distant future, when a solar flare has wreaked havoc on Earth, a man named Finch (Hanks) lives a quiet life, doing his best to survive alongside his dog, Goodyear. But as Finch deals with radiation sickness and an increasingly unlivable environment, he builds a robot to look after Goodyear in his eventual absence. And soon, the three hit the road together, seeking out a safer home in San Francisco as Finch makes sure his family can fend for itself without him.


The Shrink Next Door

Where: Apple TV Plus
Release date: November 12

Inspired by true events, The Shrink Next Door tells the story of “psychiatrist to the stars” Dr. Isaac “Ike” Herschkopf and his bizarre relationship with longtime patient Martin “Marty” Markowitz. As Ike blurs the lines that are supposed to exist between doctor and patient, he slowly inserts himself into Marty’s life in more and more inappropriate ways. Ike even goes so far as to move into Marty’s home in the Hamptons. As things escalate, Ike takes advantage of his position to a concerning degree, exploiting Marty for his own financial gain. Starring Will Farrell and Paul Rudd, this could be Apple’s next big hit.


The Princess Switch 3: Romancing the Star

Where: Netflix
Release date: November 18

Wondering what to stream in preparation for the holidays? Netflix is going all-in on Christmas movies once again, and that includes the newest entry in the Princess Switch franchise. The Vanessa Hudgens-starring Christmas series is one of the more entertaining Netflix holiday offerings, with the former Disney star pulling triple duty as three mysteriously identical women in the fictional kingdom of Belgravia. The Prince and the Pauper-inspired premise makes way for a full-on heist film scenario in this latest installment, which will surely be as much silly fun as its predecessors.


Star Trek: Discovery season four

Where: Paramount Plus
Release date: November 18

Star Trek fans are living in an age of plenty. From Star Trek: Picard and the upcoming Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, to the animated outing Star Trek: Lower Decks and Star Trek: Prodigy, Trekkies (or Trekkers) are rarely at a loss for what to stream these days. And now, the flagship series of the current batch of Treks is back. Star Trek: Discovery returns for a fourth season on Paramount Plus, following the adventures of a Starfleet crew still lost in time and grappling with the future of the universe.


The Great season two

Where: Hulu
Release date: November 19

Continue to watch the rise of Catherine the Great in season two of the hit Hulu series. The Great offers a fictionalized take (or “occasionally true story,” as stated in the opening) of Catherine’s arrival in Russia, where she would eventually go on to be the nation’s longest-reigning female monarch. But her early days are rocky as she acclimates to her new surroundings and her boarish, inept new husband Peter. This satirical, pitch-black historical comedy is truly among the most exciting shows to look forward to this month.


Cowboy Bebop

Where: Netflix
Release date: November 19

Netflix is playing to the super-fans with its upcoming adaptation of beloved anime Cowboy Bepop. The series follows a team of bounty hunters trying to make it in the future, surviving one job at a time. Mixing sci-fi, western, samurai, and French comic book influences, the show evokes everything from Star Wars to The Fifth Element to Yojimbo to The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. If you’re a fan of the original, or just want a fun new space adventure to add to your queue, don’t miss Cowboy Bebop.


The Wheel of Time

Where: Amazon Prime Video
Release date: November 19

Based on the celebrated fantasy series by Robert Jordan, launched in 1990 and completed posthumously by Brandon Sanderson, The Wheel of Time takes place in a fictional, unnamed world, where only certain women may access magic. It follows Moiraine (Rosamund Pike), a member of the incredibly powerful all-female organization called the Aes Sedai, as she seeks out a group of youngsters, one of whom is prophesied to either save or destroy the world. With a massive budget and a second season already confirmed, Amazon is banking hard on the series, which could be the next Game of Thrones.


Hawkeye

Where: Disney Plus
Release date: November 24

Marvel fans rejoice! Another new series is on its way, and this one is Christmas-themed. Hawkeye will see Clint Barton/Hawkeye working with and mentoring a young archer. Kate Bishop, who also goes by the moniker Hawkeye, will be Clint’s protégé, possibly eventually replacing him among the Avengers. At the same time, Clint will be dealing with some of the fallout of his actions in Avengers: Endgame, playing judge, jury, and executioner to criminals around the world. Clint will, all the while, be reconnecting with his family, who he lost for five years after “the snap.”


Bruised

Where: Netflix
Release date: November 24

And last but not least, Netflix’s Bruised should absolutely be included in your list of what to stream this November. Oscar-winner Halle Berry pulls double duty here, starring in her directorial debut about an MMA fighter who’s spent years out of the ring. Now, with the chance to take the top female MMA fighter in an unsanctioned fight, she has a chance to finally get back in the game and prove herself. But she’s also forced to face her past when her six-year-old son falls back into her life after she put him up for adoption.
