NEW BINGE-WORTHY NETFLIX ORIGINALS TO ADD TO YOUR LIST:
Is one of your favorites on the list above? Don't worry, there are still a ton of other fan-favorite original Netflix shows and movies you can binge, including new original movies every single week in 2021. Here's what we think you should stream this month.
The Harder They Fall: In this Western, outlaw Nat Love (Jonathan Majors) discovers that his enemy (Idris Elba) is being released from prison, so he reunites his gang to track down Rufus Buck and seek revenge. The Harder They Fall is a fictional story, but Nat Love was a real cowboy. Majors told PopCulture.com that viewers will not be disappointed in the film that stars himself, Elba, Regina King, Zazie Beetz, Edi Gathegi, Deon Cole and Delroy Lindo, just to name a few.
"It is a buffet of entertainment, a buffet of catharsis, a buffet of historical relevance and zeitgeist contributing factors," Majors said. "The music is the music. The way we cooperate in order to build the story, the way we collaborated in order to chisel out this statue that is The Harder They Fall. You will get a lot. There's a lot there. If you want gluten-free, watch this scene. If you want meat, watch this scene. It's all there, it's all there."
The Harder They Fall is available to stream on Netflix now.prevnext
'BIG MOUTH' - SEASON 5
Starting with "No Nut November" and continuing through New Year's Eve, Big Mouth Season 5 takes on the theme of love and hate with the introduction of lovebugs and hate worms, amorphous creatures that can shift between the two forms (like caterpillars and butterflies). Nick's lovebug, Walter (Brandon Kyle Goodman), pushes Nick to pursue his feelings for Jessi until she publicly rejects him, turning Walter into a hate worm who leads Nick down a dark, rancorous path. Meanwhile, Jessi's lovebug, Sonya (Pamela Adlon), appears as Jessi gets closer with Ali and eventually wonders if she loves her as more than a friend. Jessi and Ali's new close bond, and joint co-opting of Missy's affinity group, sends Missy into her own hate spiral, fueled by hate worm Rochelle (Keke Palmer). Jealousy, unrequited love, and newfound crushes abound in this new form-breaking season as the Big Mouth teens navigate 8th grade.
Big Mouth Season 5, in addition to the first four seasons, is available to stream on Netflix now.prevnext
'TIGER KING 2'
Didn't think there could possibly be any more twists and turns to this story? Oh, ye of little faith. Tiger King returns with a second season that digs further into the mysteries and personas that captivated audiences and launched the careers of a thousand armchair detectives.
Tiger King 2 is available to stream on Netflix starting Wednesday, Nov. 17.prevnext
Netflix's newest horror series is from Mike Flanagan, who created, directed and wrote the streamer's previous hits The Haunting of Hill House and The Haunting of Bly Manor. The seven-episode series follows an isolated island community experiencing miraculous events and frightening omens after the arrival of a mysterious priest. Flanagan admitted in a letter released with the trailer in August that Midnight Mass is his "favorite project so far," even going so far as to say, "The ideas at the root of this show scare me to my core." Starring Zach Gilford, Kate Siegel and Hamish Linklater, Midnight Mass is available to stream on Netflix now.prevnext
Netflix's new horror series Squid Game is taking the world by storm.
