5 Series Coming To Netflix In November That Are Worth The Binge

Netflix NFLX has had an incredible few months with the wild success of Squid Game. Since its September 17 premiere the South Korean survival drama has broken the streamer’s own records with more than 50% of its subscribers binge-watching the series and talking about it online.

That’s more than 142 million member households of the 209 million overall tuning in within the first four weeks of the show’s worldwide launch, thus making it Netflix’s most-watched series to date.

Can Netflix keep up the momentum? Well, suffice it to say the streamer has some very good series coming your way in November.

Narcos: Mexico Season 3 (November 5, Ten Episodes) – The third season of this fan favorite is set in the 90s as the globalization of the drug business ignites and this season examines the war that breaks out after Felix’s arrest. As newly independent cartels struggle to survive political upheaval and escalating violence, a new generation of Mexican kingpins emerge. But in this war, truth is the first casualty and every arrest, murder and take-down only pushes real victory further away. Scoot McNairy, Diego Luna and José María Yazpik star in this nail-biter about the rise of the Guadalajara Cartel. 


Arcane (November 6, Nine Episodes) – This animated event series is based on the world behind the game League of Legends. The story is centered between the rich city of Piltover and the seedy underbelly of Zaun. Tensions between these city-states boil over with the creation of Hextech in Piltover, which is a way for any person to control magical energy. In Zaun, a new drug called Shimmer transforms humans into monsters. The rivalry between the cities splits families and friends as Arcane brings life to the relationships that shape some of League of Legends‘ famous champions including Vi (Hailee Steinfeld), Jinx (Ella Purnell), Caitlyn (Katie Leung), Jayce (Kevin Alejandro) and Viktor (Harry Lloyd).

Tiger King Season 2 aka Tiger King 2 (November 17, Five Episodes) – The first season of this doc series was a global hit with 64 million households binge-watching in the first four weeks after its March 2020 premiere. Directors Eric Goode and Rebecca Chaiklin told the stories of a wild cast of characters involved in the stranger-than-fiction world of big cat owners, including that of Joe Exotic, a gun-toting polygamist and country-western singer who presided over an Oklahoma roadside zoo. Enter Carole Baskin, owner of a rival big cat sanctuary, and Joe’s arrest for a murder-for-hire plot and things got really crazy. It’s anyone’s guess as to where season two will go but what we do know is that Joe is in prison and Baskin is reportedly not involved. One thing is certain with this crew, it’ll be anything but boring.

Cowboy Bebop (November 19, Ten Episodes) – This action-packed space Western series is based on the beloved anime series of the same name and follows the story of three bounty hunters (aka cowboys) all trying to outrun the past. As different as they are deadly, Spike Spiegel (John Cho), Jet Black (Mustafa Shakir) and Faye Valentine (Daniella Pineda) form a scrappy, snarky crew ready to hunt down the solar system’s most dangerous criminals. Rounding out the cast are Geoff Stults, Alex Hassell, Elena Satine, Tamara Tunie, Mason Alexander Park, Rachel House, Ann Truong and Hoa Xuande.

True Story (November 24, Seven Episodes) – During a tour stop in his hometown of Philadelphia, one of the world’s most famous comedians is forced to answer the question of how far he’ll go to protect what he has. This limited series has an amazing cast that includes Kevin Hart, Wesley Snipes, Tawny Newsome, Will Catlett, Paul Adelstein, Theo Rossi, Ash Santos, John Ales, Chris Diamantopoulos, Billy Zane and Lauren London. Hart executive produces alongside Eric Newman, Dave Becky, Bryan Smiley and Stephen Williams and Williams directs alongside Hanelle Culpepper.
