As we enter November proper, it’s time to take a look at what’s up next on one of the biggest streaming platforms around. While you prep for Black Friday sales and figure out what to cook for the big dinner later this month, we’ve sifted through this week’s new on Netflix content to see what’s worth checking out.
The major standout is The Killer, a tense tale about an assassin (Michael Fassbender) who misses his target and has to go on a world-spanning trip to track them down. While he makes his way around the globe to track down where the person he needs to take care of has gone, he relates tales about his previous jobs and ruminates on his life in the profession.
There’s also Escaping Twin Flames, a documentary that explores the online love community Twin Flames Universe, which has long been under fire for the way its creators, Jeff and Shaleia Divine, have allegedly encouraged toxic and cult-like behaviors.
Also new on Netflix is The Claus Family 3, just in time for the holidays, which finds the grandchildren of Santa himself taking on the responsibility of delivering gifts to everyone around the world without his guidance.
Below, check out our day-by-day rundown of what’s new on Netflix this week.
