There’s lots to look forward to on Netflix for the rest of 2022. With new seasons of our favourite series, buzzy film premieres, and some promising new releases, there’s no shortage of titles to stream this November and December. Start lining up your holiday binge-watches!
Blockbuster – November 3
From Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Superstore writers comes another charming workplace sitcom—this time, set in a beloved but nearly extinct movie store. Randall Park stars as Timmy Yoon, a movie lover and long-time Blockbuster employee. After learning he is operating the last Blockbuster Video in America, Timmy and his employees fight to stay relevant. The only way to succeed is to remind their community that they provide something big corporations can’t: human connection. Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s Melissa Fumero stars as Eliza, Timmy’s love interest, and Olga Merediz (who shone in her roles as a grandmother in In The Heights and Encanto) plays the store’s blunt mother figure.
Enola Holmes 2 – November 4
Film, Adventure, Mystery, Drama
The much-anticipated Enola Holmes sequel arrives on Netflix on November 4, picking up with Enola (Millie Bobby Brown) opening her own detective agency, following in the footsteps of her famous brother, Sherlock (Henry Cavill). As the harsh realities of adulthood (and being a female detective) set in, Enola nearly gives up—until a new case involving a missing girl throws her into a puzzling and dangerous new world. The search leads her to London’s sinister factories and colourful music halls, to the highest echelons of society and 221B Baker Street itself. If you enjoyed Enola’s adventures the first time around, this looks to be an even more intriguing mystery for her to unravel.
The Crown – November 9
The Crown’s long-awaited 5th season is dropping soon, just 2 months after the death of Queen Elizabeth. But in the show’s timeline, we’ll pick up as Queen Elizabeth II (Imelda Staunton) approaches the 40th anniversary of her accession and new challenges are on the horizon. Prince Charles (Dominic West) pressures his mother to allow him to divorce Diana (Elizabeth Debicki), presenting a constitutional crisis of the monarchy. Rumours circulate as husband and wife are seen to live increasingly separate lives and, as media scrutiny intensifies, Diana decides to take control of her own narrative, breaking with family protocol to publish a book that undermines public support for Charles and exposes the cracks in the House of Windsor. The official trailer arrived a few weeks ago, and yes, it was worth the hype.
Falling for Christmas – November 10

Lindsay Lohan returns to the screen on November 10th for this charming holiday rom-com. A newly engaged, spoiled hotel heiress (Lohan) gets into a skiing accident, suffers from total amnesia and finds herself in the care of a handsome, blue-collar lodge owner (Chord Overstreet) and his precocious daughter in the days leading up to Christmas. “It’s such a refreshing, heartwarming romantic comedy, and I miss doing those kinds of movies,” Lohan told Tudum. A perfect watch to get into the holiday spirit!

Wednesday – November 23
Series, Mystery, Comedy, Fantasy
Coming to Netflix on November 23 is this twist on The Addams Family, focused on the family’s gloomy teenage daughter Wednesday as she starts at a creepy new school. Starring Jenna Ortega as Wednesday and Catherine Zeta-Jones and Luis Guzmán as her parents Morticia and Gomez, the series is described as a “sleuthing, supernaturally infused mystery,” and will follow Wednesday at her new school as she “attempts to master her emerging psychic ability, thwart a monstrous killing spree that has terrorized the local town, and solve the murder mystery that embroiled her parents 25 years ago.” This new series from the mind of Tim Burton promises to draw us in with twisted adventures and dark mysteries.

Firefly Lane Season 2 (Part 1) – December 2
Series, Romance, Drama
The emotional and endearing series Firefly Lane is returning on December 2 with the first nine episodes of Season 2. We’re all wondering what led to the end of Kate and Tully’s 30-year friendship, and this season is promising us the answer to that and plenty of other pivotal moments from their lives. Tully faces a lawsuit and a quest to find her estranged father, while Kate grapples with the painful aftermath of Johnny’s ill-fated trip to Iraq. The show flashes back to the 80s, as Tully’s career rises and we see Kate and Johnny first fall in love — causing some newsroom drama. We’ll also see teenage Kate and Tully struggle to keep their friendship together when Tully moves away from Firefly Lane. We love how Firefly Lane shows the enduring power of strong friendship, and we’re excited to see this next chapter of Kate and Tully’s story unfold.

Emily in Paris is already renewed for Season 4, so there is plenty of Emily’s adventures left for us to watch.
Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery – December 23

The highly-anticipated follow-up to Rian Johnson’s murder-mystery film Knives Out premiered at TIFF earlier this year to sold-out crowds, and the buzz around Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery is still going strong. This time around, there’s a new cast of characters, and of course, a new mystery to solve. Detective Benoit Blanc travels to a lavish private estate on a Greek island, where he meets a group of friends gathering at the invitation of billionaire Miles Bron for their yearly reunion. With each character harbouring their own secrets, lies and motivations, when someone turns up dead, everyone is a suspect. Another star-studded cast is taking the screen, with Daniel Craig returning alongside Janelle Monáe, Kathryn Hahn, Kate Hudson, Edward Norton, Leslie Odom Jr., Jessica Henwick, Madelyn Cline and Dave Bautista. Coming to theatres for one week on November 23, this blockbuster is arriving to Netflix just in time for the holidays, on December 23.
