The outside may be getting colder and colder, but everything leaving and coming to Netflix in November 2018 is sure to help you embrace the chilly weather and welcome some much needed holiday cheer. Because when it comes to introducing new Christmas-centric movies, this streaming service totally has your back and will get you in the holiday spirit faster than you can pour another glass of egg nog.
Like every other month that rolls around, Netflix is gearing up to bring some new additions and classic favorites to your television screens that'll make you want to stay on that comfy couch of yours for weeks on end. However, also just like every other month, while new shows and movies arrive on the platform, others are forced to leave in order to make room. It's not an ideal scenario by any means, but thankfully Netflix manages to make the trouble well worth our while by providing a vast new selection of entertainment into the mix. And if you're forced to stay inside, what better way to embrace the oncoming winter than by watching endless amounts of TV?
So without further ado, here's everything coming and leaving Netflix in November that you'll want to make note of, along with the complete list further down. But first off, let's start with what's heading your way in the next few weeks.
1. Angela's Christmas (Nov. 1)
Based on a story by Frank McCourt, this heartwarming story takes place during Christmas Eve and centers around a character named, you guessed it, Angela. Given Netflix's past success with widely popular Christmas movies, this one is sure to be a must-see for all.
2. Bram Stoker's Dracula (Nov. 1)
OK, so this one isn't exactly meant to put you in the holiday spirit, but considering that it's arriving on Nov. 1, it's definitely worth watching for those still riding that Halloween high.
3. Doctor Strange (Nov. 1)
There's nothing strange about wanting more of Marvel's resident warlock in your life, and this 2007 animated film will give fans of the MCU a different take on Doctor Strange's origin story.
4. Good Will Hunting (Nov. 1)
Fans of Robin Williams can't miss out on this classic.
5. Julie & Julia (Nov. 1)
Cooking is a big part of the holidays and nobody can appreciate that better than the iconic Julia Child played by the equally iconic Meryl Streep.
6. National Lampoon's Animal House (Nov. 1)
When it comes to raunchy frat house comedies, no movie does it better than Animal House.
7. Scary Movie 2 (Nov. 1)
If you love Halloween and aren't quite ready to say goodbye to this particular holiday, the Scary Movie franchise is the perfect way to ease you out of your trick-or-treating blues. After all, what better way to get over the spookiest time of the year than by laughing about it?
8. Scary Movie 3 (Nov. 1)
Because if you watch the second, you might as well round it out by watching the third.
9. Sex and the City: The Movie (Nov. 1)
Nothing could be more fabulous than kicking off the month with some of your favorite TV BFFs.
10. Sixteen Candles (Nov. 1)
This John Hughes-directed coming-of-age classic will give you all the typical nostalgia feels, while also making you thankful that your teenage years are behind you.
11. The English Patient (Nov. 1)
Watching this would be a great way to help remind you that Ralph Fiennes has played a lot more than just Voldemort.
12. Cape Fear (Nov. 1)
This psychological thriller will make you never be able to look at Robert De Niro the same way ever again.
13. Cloverfield (Nov. 1)
Halloween may be over, but your scare intake doesn't have to be.
14. House Of Cards Season 6 (Nov. 2)
The sixth and final season is a definite must-see, not just because Claire Underwood is now president. Wait, actually, yes that is the main reason, but honestly, isn't that enough?
15. Trolls: The Beat Goes On! Season 4 (Nov. 2)
The songs are always so catchy, you won't be able to help singing along.
16. Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End (Nov. 4)
Come for the pirates, stay for Orlando Bloom.
17. The Holiday Calendar (Nov. 2)
A young woman receives a magical advent calendar and falls in love? Sounds like the perfect Christmas movie for a cozy night in.
18. The Break-Up (Nov. 16)
You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll come come on the kick drum.
19. Trevor Noah: Son of Patricia (Nov. 20)
Here's hoping that this adorable child shows up in it at some point.
20. A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding (Nov. 30)
Get ready to return to Aldovia for the wedding (and sequel) of the century.
Meanwhile, take a look at some of the show and movies on Netflix that are about to be on their last leg:
1. Amelie (Nov. 1)
Directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet, this French romantic comedy will be sorely missed.
2. Cruel Intentions (Nov. 1)
You'll have to find some other way to watch this '90s staple (though honestly, you should definitely own a copy of this classic already).
3. Cruel Intentions 2 (Nov. 1)
Though it wasn't nearly as popular as the original, it'd be wrong to not mention the sequel, which starred the flawless Amy Adams.
4. Cruel Intentions 3 (Nov. 1)
Having to part ways with all three movies feels like the cruelest thing of all.
5. Jurassic Park (Nov. 1)
Hold onto your butts because just as fast as Jurassic Park stomped its way onto Netflix, it's just as quickly leaving.
6. The Lost World: Jurassic Park (Nov. 1)
Sadly, there will also be a little less Jeff Goldblum in your life.
7. Jurassic Park III (Nov. 1)
When it rains, it pours, which means the third installment of the franchise will be heading out as well.
8. Oculus (Nov. 1)
Get ready to never be able to sleep again. (You know, in case The Haunting of Hill House hasn't already done that to you.)
9. Steel Magnolias (Nov. 1)
On the bright side, there will be a lot less crying in your future.
10. The Land Before Time (Nov. 1)
This iconic kids classic is becoming extinct. So long, Sharp Tooth!
11. The Land Before Time II: The Great Valley Adventure (Nov. 1)
*insert another extinct-related joke here*
12. The Land Before Time III: The Time of the Great Giving (Nov. 1)
It seems Littlefoot is moving on to bigger and better things.
13. The Reader (Nov. 1)
Anything involving Kate Winslet deserves a couple hours of your time.
14. The Lazarus Effect (Nov. 1)
If you thought being able to revive the dead was a good idea, Olivia Wilde will make you think again.
15. Up in the Air (Nov. 1)
Anna Kendrick and George Clooney are the power duo you never knew you needed in your life.
16. Phenomenon (Nov. 1)
You'll have to get your John Travolta fix some other way.
17. Hellboy II: The Golden Army (Nov. 1)
Thankfully, there will be a new Hellboy movie coming our way in the near future to help make up for this loss.
18. Smokin' Aces 2: Assassins' Ball (Nov. 1)
A true loss for all the crime action lovers out there.
19. Anna Karenina (Nov. 12)
Is there any outfit Keira Knightley can't pull off?

We'll miss this bear most of all.
