Marvel’s The Punisher, Godless, Alias Grace, and More on Netflix in November

The highlight for Netflix’s October was the return of Stranger Things, the breakout hit that captured everyone’s attention last year. We found the second season to be an improvement over the original, and well worth a weekend binge-watch. There was also Mindhunter from David Fincher, which has become a small sensation in itself. And we also got to see The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected) in October, thanks to Netflix’s policy of bringing Cannes films earlier than anyone else.

November is looking to be a promising albeit light month for Netflix subscribers, and there’s something for everyone. There’s a new Marvel show in The Punisher, which arrives on November 17 after being pushed from its original October airing owing to the Las Vegas mass shooting. Fans of Margaret Atwood will be delighted to know her 1996 book Alias Grace is getting a TV adaptation on November 3.

Later in the month, Steven Soderbergh’s Godless – a western set in the 1880s starring Jeff Daniels and Jack O’Connell – will arrive on November 22. Other new series and co-productions include Japanese manga-based teen comedy Blazing Transfer Students, high school drama Prison Playbook, Nightcrawler-type drama Shot in the Dark that follows three hungry stringers, Japanese rom-com parody The Many Faces of Ito, and crime mystery The Sinner which originally aired on USA Network.

On the original film front, you’ve four options to look forward to: the London Iranian Embassy siege in 6 Days, Brazilian western O Matador (The Killer), teen romance drama A Christmas Prince, and WWII drama Mudbound set in rural Mississippi. The original doc department is much lighter, with just one new entry: Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond — Featuring a Very Special, Contractually Obligated Mention of Tony Clifton, which offers a behind-the-scenes look at Jim Carrey playing Andy Kaufman.

If you’re an avid viewer of stand-up comedy content, November will give you hour-long shows from DeRay Davis and Brian Regan. Your children can choose from Beat Bugs: All Together Now, Dinotrux Supercharged, Glitter Force Doki Doki, Project Mc2, and Stretch Armstrong & the Flex Fighters.

With that, here are our four picks for November 2017 that you should watch out for, and the full list of movies and TV shows coming to Netflix India after that.

Alias Grace: Season 1 / November 3
Based on Margaret Atwood’s 1996 novel of the same name – as we said above – Alias Grace is the second big Atwood adaptation this year, after the Emmy-winning The Handmaid’s Tale on Hulu. Loosely based on real events, the author constructed her own narrative around a double murder, which follows a psychiatrist studying a «celebrated murderess». The show has earned decent early reviews.

Marvel’s The Punisher: Season 1 / November 17
Thanks to the great reception in Daredevil season two, Jon Bernthal’s Frank Castle is getting his solo series, which further explores his military background while charting the consequences of going after the ones that killed his family, which balloons into a government conspiracy, swallowing him and the people around him into a chaos of death and destruction. As usual, a total of 13 episodes.

Godless / November 22
In the American Wild West of 1880s, Frank Griffin (Jeff Daniels) and his gang of outlaws are chasing his former partner turned enemy Roy Goode (Jack O’Connell), who has taken refuge in an isolated mining town of La Belle, New Mexico, which is governed by a bunch of women, led by accustomed widower Alice Fletcher (Michelle Dockery). The seven-part miniseries has been co-created by Steven Soderbergh (Ocean’s Trilogy) and Scott Frank.

Mudbound / November 17
Carey Mulligan (An Education), Jason Clarke (Brotherhood) and Jonathan Banks (Breaking Bad) star in director Dee Rees’ period drama set in rural Mississippi, where two brothers return home from World War II and struggle with racism and PTSD. Based on the novel of the same name by Hillary Jordan, Mudbound premiered at Sundance earlier in the year and has been well-received by most critics.
