All the genre TV and movies coming to streaming in November 2020

There are a whole lot of great shows rolling out this month, led by the absolutely wild, long-awaited revival of animated series Animaniacs. Yes, 25 years later, Yakko, Wakko and Dot have returned with a fresh run of episodes on Hulu.

But the Animaniacs bursting from the grave isn’t the only news this month — we also have a whole lot of other cool stuff, with a bunch of it coming to Disney+. There’s the continued rollout of The Mandalorian’s second season; the LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special event; and Marvel’s 616 docs-series giving fans an inside look into the hallowed halls of Marvel. CBS All Access has the next batch of episodes in Star Trek: Discovery’s second season; and all the beloved Peanuts holiday specials are coming to Apple TV+ (sorry, network TV fans).

Digging deeper, Prime Video has a new original spy-fi series based on Alex Rider; Netflix is adding the most recent season of American Horror Story; and HBO Max is slowly looking to add its DC Universe originals to the catalog, including Titans and Young Justice this month. Shudder also has some creepy new horror originals.

Check out the full November streaming lineup below and let us know what you’ll be bingeing.

NETFLIX

HIGHLIGHTS

V For Vendetta: The world is in a fairly chaotic place these days, which means it’s never been a better time to revisit the big screen take on Alan Moore’s iconic graphic novel. The film holds up well, and could be a useful meditation for election year.

American Horror Story: 1984: The most recent season of the long-running anthology horror series arrives in bingeable form, with a story that puts a fresh spin on plenty of classic slasher movie tropes with plenty of fresh twists.

Alien Xmas: This looks to be a weird one, but it’s definitely on our radar. It’s a stop-motion Christmas special based on the 2015 book of the same name by the Chiodo Bros. (Killer Klowns from Outer Space). The story kicks off when a race of kleptomaniac aliens try to steal Earth’s gravity, and only the gift-giving spirit of Christmas and a small alien named X can save the world.

HULU

HIGHLIGHTS

The Bourne Trilogy: Need some throwback action thrills? The full OG Bourne trilogy is hitting Hulu this month, and it remains a whole lot of spy-fi conspiracy fun. Sure, you can always watch the Treadstone TV series or the spinoff film with Jeremy Renner — but this is where the conspiracy all started with Matt Damon.

Tesla: The 2020 biographical drama comes to Hulu, starring Ethan Hawke as famed inventor Nikola Tesla. Critics mostly praised the film for its ambition in trying to tell the story of such a unique figure in history, and with it dropping on catalog, it could be a great one for history and sci-fi buffs to check out.

Animaniacs: The beloved animated series returns, 25 years later. And yes, it looks to be just as irreverent, silly, and fun as ever. The creators tease they’ll use the show to skewer more modern issues and figures, much like they did in the original series during its acclaimed run. They also aim to keep up the multilayered jokes, so there’ll be some gags there for you, and the kids.

HIGHLIGHTS

The Mandalorian Season 2: The wait is over — this is the way. Season 2 of the acclaimed, hit live action Star Wars series continues its rollout. The show looks to pick up with Mando still on his quest to return Baby Yoda to his own people, and it looks to bring plenty of questing, action and adventure with it.

LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special: Disney+ is reviving the infamous Star Wars Holiday Special with a LEGO twist, bringing back several A-list stars to reprise their roles in animated LEGO form. The special will reunite Rey, Finn, Poe, Chewie, Rose and the droids for a joyous feast on Life Day, the holiday first introduced in 1978’s OG Star Wars Holiday Special. 

Marvel’s 616: Want a front row set in the creation of the MCU, Marvel Comics and all things superhero? Marvel’s 616 should do the trick. This new docuseries goes behind the scenes of Marvel to talk to the creatives and creators who put together all our favorite super-stories.

HIGHLIGHTS

Underworld Trilogy: Need some post-holiday werewolf and vampire action? The full, original Underworld trilogy hits Prime Video — and its full of that Romeo and Juliet-style, forbidden love across the monster spectrum. And yes, this is just the original trilogy — not the two additional films that followed. But hey, better than nothing right?

Alex Rider (Original Series): The hit teenage spy book series comes to live action, in this British adaptation of Adam Horowitz’s original series of novels. Critics say the show is generally pretty good, and in an era where fresh TV is still a bit limited due to the pandemic, it could be a great distraction. Plus, a second season is already in the works — so you know the story won’t leave you hanging.

Community: Seasons 1-6: The beloved, genre-adjacent sitcom gained a second life of sorts after dropping on Netflix a few months ago and generating a whole of rewatches (and first-watches). Now, folks on Prime Video will have a chance to join in on the fun and rediscover one of the best sitcoms out there. And in case you didn’t know, it’s also where the Russo Brothers got their start — so it’s a bona fide MCU artifact at this point.

HBO MAX

HIGHLIGHTS

DC Universe’s Titans and Young Justice: With DC Universe slowly phasing down, most of its original programming is slowly starting to shift over to the flagship streaming lineup at HBO Max. For HBO Max subscribers, that’s a good thing — because Titans and Young Justice are a whole lot of fun. 

Underwater: The 2020 sci-fi thriller was a wild, wet ride, throwing a cast led by Kristen Stewart into an underwater adventure where killer creatures are out to cause trouble and, ya know, kill everyone. The flick didn’t do much with critics or at the box office, but it was one of the last pre-COVID sci-fi flicks to hit the big screen early in the year. So if you missed it the first time around, could be worth a watch now. 

The Hobbit Trilogy: Peter Jackson’s prequel series return to Middle-earth is coming to HBO Max, in full, which should eat up pretty much any weekend with a lengthy binge. You get dragons, twists, gorgeous New Zealand vistas and a grand adventure that certainly would’ve made Tolkien proud.

SHUDDER

HIGHLIGHTS

Blood Vessel: Somewhere in the North Atlantic, late 1945, a life raft adrift at sea, and in it, the survivors of a torpedoed hospital ship. With no food, water, or shelter, all seems lost until a seemingly abandoned German minesweeper drifts ominously towards them, giving them one last chance at survival—if they can survive the bloodthirsty monsters on board. Starring Nathan Phillips (Wolf Creek), Alyssa Sutherland (Vikings), Robert Taylor (Longmire), directed by Justin Dix (Crawlspace). A SHUDDER EXCLUSIVE. 

Lingering: Seeking support as the guardian of her younger brother, Yoo-mi returns to a small hotel run by a family friend. As bizarre incidents creep up in her mother’s old room, Yoo-mi will have to unravel the supernatural mystery and discover the truth before it’s too late. Starring Lee Se-young (Memorist), Park ji-young (The Concubine), directed by Yoon Eun-kyoung. A SHUDDER ORIGINAL.

Leap of Faith: A lyrical and spiritual cinematic essay on The Exorcist, Leap of Faith explores the uncharted depths of William Friedkin’s mind’s eye, the nuances of his filmmaking process, and the mysteries of faith and fate that have shaped his life and filmography. The film marks the sixth feature documentary from Philippe (78/52, Memory: The Origins of Alien), continuing his thoughtful analysis of iconic genre films. Starring William Friedkin. Directed by Alexandre O. Philippe. A SHUDDER ORIGINAL.
