Australian streaming TV is getting its biggest shake up this month with Disney+ this month so many of the big players are redefining themselves without Disney princesses or Marvel’s superheroes in the catalogues.
It’s a good month for Netflix, and it begins with Scorsese heading up the raft of new films with his long awaited feature, The Irishman. The film is currently on the festival circuit; Joe Pesci came out of almost ten years of retirement to play opposite Robert De Niro in the gangster flick, and it all looks worth it: the film has garnered rave reviews so far.
Netflix is looking set to bring back some of its classic series; On the first of the month Netflix Original Atypical is coming back for a third season, and a limited series of Queer Eye: We’re In Japan is also set to hit the service. She-Ra will return for a fourth season on the 5 November, and The Dragon Prince is back for season three on 10 November. Things are starting to get seasonal, too: The Great British Baking Show: Holidays will be back for a second season, as will Nailed It!: Holiday! just 12 days later, on 22 November.
Bracing itself for the rise of Disney Netflix is pushing its original content hard, with new films, documentaries, and family titles announced throughout the month. On top of The Irishman, Mati Diop directed the supernatural romance Atlantics to a broad acclaim, which will reach the service on 28 November.
