Here’s What Comes To Netflix In November 2018

The Christmas content begins.
10/24/2018 03:07pm ET

The holiday season must be right around the corner because Netflix adds quite a few Christmas movies in November.

This time around, the very first title on the monthly list is an animated short called “Angela’s Christmas,” which joins on Nov. 1. So you can start the Christmas season immediately after Halloween this year. It doesn’t look like Netflix will add any Thanksgiving content, so you might as well ignore that holiday.

I wonder if Netflix made a concerted effort to add titles with “Christmas” explicitly in the name to grab users searching for that word on the platform. Netflix also adds “The Christmas Chronicles” and “A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding” this month.

Apart from Christmas content, Netflix has a few Original highlights in November.

“House of Cards” returns for a final season sans Kevin Spacey. “The Great British Baking Show” returns sans all its former hosts (but for different reasons than Spacey). “Narcos: Mexico” debuts as a follow-up to the popular “Narcos” series. And Rupert Grint stars in a British comedy called “Sick Note.” Apparently, Lindsay Lohan is also in that one. I’ll believe it when I see it.

As always, Netflix adds quite a few non-Original movies as well. Notable additions include “Children of Men,” “Cloverfield,” “Good Will Hunting,” “Julie & Julia,” “National Lampoon’s Animal House,” “Sixteen Candles,” “The English Patient” and the classic “Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo.”

Departures include “Paddington,” “Up in the Air” and a ton of dinosaur movies including multiple “Jurassic Park” films and “The Land Before Time” series.
