New Netflix November 2019 Movies & TV Shows Include Original Holiday Content

Liz Minch

The holiday season is getting closer and closer, and, this November, Christmas is coming early courtesy of Netflix. The streaming site just released the entire list of new Netflix November 2019 movies and TV shows, including the beginning of their holiday-themed lineup of original movies. Your family might be yelling at you to keep the Christmas music down until after Thanksgiving, but Netflix is starting the celebration right on Nov. 1 with the release of their original film Holiday in the Wild, starring Rob Lowe and Kristin Davis as two opposites who find each other while rescuing a baby elephant in Africa.

Of course, it's not all Christmas joy and love stories. The Crown Season 3 will also be premiering on Netflix in November, as will Martin Scorsese's The Irishman. Not to mention, The King, starring Timothée Chalamet and Robert Pattinson (and their instantly iconic haircuts). The site will also debut a new mini-season of their hit Queer Eye, taking the Fab Five to Japan for the appropriately titled Queer Eye: We're In Japan!, premiering Nov. 1. And then, there's all the content leaving Netflix this November, including the classic Groundhog Day and The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers and Return of the King.

But first, let's focus on what's coming. Here are all the new movies and TV shows coming to Netflix in November that you're definitely going to want to keep an eye on.

'American Son' — Coming Nov. 1

David Lee/Netflix

Based on the Broadway play of the same name, the film stars Kerry Washington as Kendra Ellis-Connor and Steven Pasquale as Scott Connor, who work together to try to find their missing teenage son. The trailer alone is all kinds of intense, so prepare to remain on the edge of your seat the entire time.

'Atypical' Season 3 — Coming Nov. 1

Beth Dubber/Netflix

This coming of age story continues as Sam heads into his first year of college, but just like with any new life endeavor, it proves to be quite the adjustment.

It's enough to make anyone grateful that their own college days are long over with.

'Holiday in the Wild' — Coming Nov. 1


When her husband decides to leave her, Kate Conrad (Kristin Davis) decides to embark on a solo safari trip to Africa where she meets Derek Holliston (Rob Lowe), a handsome pilot with a knack for saving baby elephants. The journey opens her eyes to the wonders of the world and makes her discover a side of herself she never knew existed.

'The King' — Coming Nov. 1


Timothée Chalamet stars as King Henry V, who is forced to embrace his royal destiny after the death of his tyrannical father. It isn't the life he wanted — in fact, he did everything in his power to escape that future. However, the people of England need a new ruler, which means palace politics becomes a pivotal part of his everyday life. Long may he and his bowl cut reign!

'Queer Eye: We're in Japan!' — Coming Nov. 1

Kelli Falls/Netflix

The Fab Five, made up of Antoni Porowski, Bobby Berk, Jonathan Van Ness, Karamo Brown, and Tan France, are back at it again, but this time they're taking their expertise out of the country to Tokyo. It's there that they will meet four new heroes while also gaining firsthand experience in Japanese cuisine, fashion, design, grooming, and culture. Yas qween, indeed!

'Grease' — Coming Nov. 1

Paramount Pictures

Grease is the one Netflix wants, and starting on Nov. 1, that desire will become a reality. This news comes just after HBO Max announced that a musical series about Rydell High is in the works, which means your hopeless devotion to the iconic film can live on for years to come.

'The Matrix' — Coming Nov. 1

Warner Bros.

What better way to revel in the gloriousness of Keanu Reeves than by watching one of the films that became the pinnacle of his career? The combat scenes alone are awe-inspiring, that is if you aren't too busy trying to figure out what exactly the Matrix is and wondering what you would do in Neo's shoes — would you choose the red bill or the blue pill?

'The End of the F***ing World' Season 2 — Coming Nov. 5


It's been two years since James and Alyssa embarked on their road trip together in The End of the F***king World's first season, but their problems are still far from over after a woman obsessed with the man they killed is released from prison. She has one thought on her mind: revenge. And she intends to get it no matter what.

According to the official description, the special will find Meyers tackling a variety of topics, including "family, fatherhood, and why you should never take your girlfriend to Paris for her birthday."

'Let It Snow' — Coming Nov. 8


Based on the best-selling book by John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle, Let It Snow gives off major Love Actually vibes as it follows the lives of high school seniors whose friendships and love lives collide in unexpected ways. The main action takes place on Christmas Eve in a small town on the brink of a snowstorm. If that isn't enough to inspire some holiday cheer, then what is?

'Klaus' — Coming Nov. 15


When Jesper (Jason Schwartzman) is deemed to be one of the worst students in the postal academy, he gets transferred to the Arctic Circle, a place where the townspeople are as chilly as the town itself. Luckily, amid all the feuding, Jesper is able to align himself with a few friends. This includes Alva (Rashida Jones) and Klaus (J.K. Simmons) — one of which has a talent for making handmade toys. Any guesses on which one that could be?

'The Crown' Season 3 — Coming Nov. 17


The Swinging Sixties prove to be a difficult time for Queen Elizabeth and England as a whole when the country faces an economic downturn and fierce nationalism creates extra scrutiny again the royal family.

'The Knight Before Christmas' — Coming Nov. 21


Netflix's original Christmas content continues with The Knight Before Christmas, which centers around medieval knight Sir Cole (Josh Whitehouse) who gets transported to present-day Ohio by a magical sorceress. There he befriends Brooke (Vanessa Hudgens), a local science teacher who helps Cole navigate the modern world while also assisting him in a mysterious quest that will allow him to return home. The only question that remains is — will he really want to go back when all is said and done?

'Nailed It! Holiday!' Season 2 — Coming Nov. 22

Richard Foreman Jr./Netflix

What better way to ring in the holiday season than with a hearty helping of epic baking fails? These botched creations are equal parts hilarious and relatable as contestants attempt to concoct yuletide sweets with a few lackluster results. You'll laugh. You'll cry (from all the laughter). You'll think twice before volunteering to bring dessert to your family's holiday feast.

'Dirty John' Season 1 — Coming Nov. 25

Jordin Althaus/Bravo

Based on the Los Angeles Times podcast of the same name, Dirty John tells the story of how Debra Newell (Connie Britton) falls in love with a man named John Meehan (Eric Bana). But this is no fairytale ending, unfortunately. Debra soon discovers John's dark side and learns that he's a man with many secrets that could prove to be a danger to her and her family.

'Holiday Rush' — Coming Nov. 28


New York's popular radio star DJ Rush Williams (Romany Malco) is living the good life until he loses his job right before the holidays, just as his four entitled kids share their pricey Christmas lists with him. He turns to his producer Roxy Richardson (Sonequa Martin-Green) and his Aunt Jo (Darlene Love) for help as he works to buy another station, but in order for it to work, his family needs to learn to downsize from the lavish life they once knew.

'Merry Happy Whatever' — Coming Nov. 28


Stress and the holiday season tend to go hand-in-hand, which is something Don Quinn (Dennis Quaid) struggles with during the hectic days leading up to and immediately following Christmas when his youngest daughter brings her new boyfriend home for a visit. Could this newcomer cause a rift in this previously close household? The Quinns may be in need of a Christmas miracle.

Of course, in exchange for all of this Netflix original Christmas content, fans are also going to have to say goodbye to some older movies and television shows. Here are a few titles you're going to want to watch before they leave Netflix in November.

'As Good as It Gets' — Leaving Nov. 1

TriStar Pictures, Inc.

Jack Nicholson plays Melvin Udall, an obsessive-compulsive writer who is rude to everyone and anyone who crosses his path. That is, until he meets a waitress and single mother at his local diner who changes his world for the better. Before he knows what's happening, the hard edges of his personality start to crumble. It's a must-see film, but one that won't be available for streaming much longer.

'Groundhog Day' — Leaving Nov. 1

Columbia Pictures

The story centers around Pittsburgh meteorologist Phil Connors (Bill Murray) who finds himself trapped in a time loop on, you guessed it, Groundhog Day. This forces him to repeat the same day over and over again, but he needs to learn a few important life lessons before he can move on from this perpetual loop. It's the perfect movie to help welcome the spring, which could be why it's departing from the streaming platform as we head into the holiday season.

'Little Women' — Leaving Nov. 1

Columbia Pictures

Based on Louisa May Alcott’s 1868 novel of the same name, this 1994 adaptation of Little Women tells the coming of age story of the four March sisters in Concord, Massachusetts during the time of the Civil War. It's a heartwarming tale and this iteration features a star-studded cast, which includes Susan Sarandon, Winona Ryder, Claire Danes, and Kirsten Dunst. So if you have set to see it, make sure you do so before it leaves Netflix on Nov. 1.

'Road House' — Leaving Nov. 1

Silver Pictures

Patrick Swayze plays Dalton, a professional "cooler" and specialized bouncer who brings his talents to a club called the Double Deuce, located in a small town in Missouri. But his presence is met with a great deal of resistance, which leads to a few deadly consequences. Swayze may not do any dancing in this film, but his charm and charisma is undeniable — and definitely worth a watch.

'Scream' — Leaving Nov. 1

Dimension Films

When it comes to classic '90s horror, no film delivers better than the Scream franchise. Unfortunately, once the Halloween season is over, so will the movie's availability on Netflix. So if you want to see a terrified Drew Barrymore experience the scariest phone call in cinematic history, you better do so soon or else it'll be too late.

'Sex and the City: The Movie' — Leaving Nov. 1

Warner Bros. Entertainment

Carrie Bradshaw, Samantha Jones, Miranda Hobbs, and Charlotte York always had a way of making New York City seem fabulous throughout its six-season run on HBO. The movie, which came out in 2008, consisted of that same sort of glamor that made these characters iconic. But while these friendships will last forever, the film's availability on Netflix will not.

'The House Bunny' — Leaving Nov. 1

Columbia Pictures

Anna Faris shines as an ex-Playboy bunny who attempts to find her place in the world once Hugh Hefner sends her packing. She befriends a group of college students whose sorority is on the brink of collapse. Being the makeover pro that she is, her expertise allows the group to skyrocket in popularity while facing a few hilarious hiccups along the way. But sadly, not even someone as charming as this former bunny can save the movie from its pending Netflix departure on Nov. 1.

'The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers' — Leaving Nov. 1

New Line Cinema

All journeys must eventually come to an end. Such is the case for The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, which will depart from the streaming service on Nov. 1. Frodo and Sam still have a long road ahead of them as they head to Mount Doom to destroy Sauron's One Ring in the hopes of saving the world, so if you wish to see them attempt such a feat, best do so quickly.

'The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King' — Leaving Nov. 1

New Line Cinema

As if loosing Two Towers isn't enough, Netflix will also being saying goodbye to The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, which serves as the third part of this epic fantasy saga. Does good ultimately prevail over evil? You'll just have to watch and see how it all unfolds.

'The Sixth Sense' — Leaving Nov. 1

Buena Vista Pictures

"I see dead people." Has there ever been a more chilling sentence uttered from a young child's lips than that? That jaw-dropping ending shocked audiences to their very core and changed everything they thought they knew about the film. It's a bone-chilling tale, which includes some of Bruce Willis' finest work, but starting on Nov. 1 it will no longer be available to watch on Netflix.

'Scary Movie 2' — Leaving Nov. 1

Warner Bros.

Speaking of creepy movies, this one serves as the exact opposite. Scary Movie 2's sole purpose is to parody all the scary films fans have come to love over the years, including The Exorcist, The Haunting, and Hollow Man, just to name a few. However, the laughs are about to come to an end on Nov. 1.

'Mamma Mia!' — Leaving Nov. 16


Nothing can put a smile on your face quite like watching Meryl Streep sing her heart out to "Dancing Queen" alongside the likes of Christine Baranski and Julie Walters. Full of fun songs against the gorgeous backdrop of Greece, Mamma Mia! is a delight to watch at any age, which is why it's such a shame for it to be leaving Netflix on Nov. 16.

'Coco' — Leaving Nov. 29


In Coco, Miguel dreams of one day becoming an accomplished musician just like his celebrity idol, Ernesto de la Cruz. There's just one problem — his family has a very strict no-music policy that prevents him from pursuing his goal. But when he accidentally finds himself in the Land of the Dead on Día de los Muertos, Miguel learns a shocking revelation about his family history that could change the course of his life forever. It's a beautiful story that deserves both your time and attention before it departs from Netflix on Nov. 29.
