The British monarchy is going through times of profound change, both in real time and in the upcoming fifth season of The Crown. The Netflix series is one of the highlights of November’s streaming series. Tim Burton’s version of the Addams Family, due Wednesday, will also premiere in the coming weeks. A good dose of nostalgia, in this case of fantasy and adventure, comes with Willow, a sequel to the 1988 film. The Kingdom Exodus, continuing the story created by Lars von Trier in 1994, brings a darker return. Several comedies and a thriller complete the month’s buffet of exciting entertainment.
But November doesn’t stop there. The month started with The Winchesters (HBO Max), a prequel to Supernatural. For those looking for light stories, Grey’s Anatomy (Disney+), The Sex Lives of College Girls (HBO Max) and even The Simpsons (Disney+) return this month. In Argentina’s El fin del amor (Prime Video), Lali Espósito deals with romance, while Echo 3 (Apple TV+) brings an action thriller with Luke Evans and Michiel Huisman.
More premieres: Dangerous Liaisons (Lionsgate+) imagines the origins of the characters from the famous novel. 1899 (Netflix) is the new project from the creators of Dark. And to top it off, in November two of the most watched Spanish series return with new seasons: Elite (Netflix) and La que se avecina (Prime Video).
Of this month’s premieres and returns (which you can check in our calendar), we recommend giving this selection a try.

One of the most luxurious productions on television returns for its fifth season to continue telling the story of Britain through the lives of the British royal family. The plot starts in 1991 and only goes forward a few years (the death of Diana of Wales in 1997 will be told in the next season). The story will be full of flavor: in these episodes, the Queen will deal with a new Prime Minister, John Major, and with several family crises, highlighting the publication of an intimate conversation between Charles and Camila and the publication of the book Diana: A True Story. Imelda Staunton, Dominic West, Jonathan Pryce, Elizabeth Debicki and Lesley Manville appear among the cast.

The third season of the comedy set among the creators of an online video game places the characters in different scenarios. Ian and Poppy continue to try to understand each other, this time as partners in a new studio. The series, which had a very good first season and a second episode with several notable episodes, faces the challenge of maintaining its successful streak. In its favor, it has a cast of characters whose quirks and flaws are endearing to viewers.

The 1988 fantasy adventure classic returns in serial form, fittingly for 2022. The story takes place years after the events told in the film. An event will force the group of characters to leave the castle walls to seek help from the sorceress Willow.

During his captivity, the psychologist reviews his own past and confronts his own repressed issues, such as his wife’s death and his son’s estrangement.
