November is here, if you can believe it. It’s a month of turkey dinners (and leftovers), ridiculous sales, and most importantly, appreciating what we have. For this week, at least, it’s about what’s new on Netflix this week. As usual, we’re here to let you know what’s worth checking out so you can build a full plan to tackle new shows and movies before the in-laws start shuffling in.
This week’s major standout is the streaming debut of Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, the animated blockbuster sequel that dazzled audiences this summer.
Also new on Netflix is the film All the Light We Cannot See, an adaptation of Anthony Doerr’s harrowing Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. It follows a man and his blind daughter as they work their way through German-occupied France, determined to keep a legendary diamond out of the Nazis’ hands.
This week’s new on Netflix slate also brings the return of reality series Selling Sunset with its seventh season. The brawls are bigger, the real estate is hotter, and the girls are just as dramatic as ever before. This time around, it looks like we’re in for a messy showdown between Chrishell and Nicole, and who-knows-what else.
Below, check out our day-by-day rundown of what’s new on Netflix this week.

When they quickly realize this heist is more than they bargained for, they round up a band of friends to help them pull it off.

Selling Sunset season 7
Get ready for a whirlwind of drama, luxury, and high-stakes tension as Selling Sunset season 7 debuts. With Bre and Chelsea at a frosty standstill and Nicole and Chrishell on the brink of a legal showdown, the O Group is more volatile than ever. Chrishell, contemplating a life-altering decision to join G Flip in Australia, finds herself increasingly isolated, her friendships with Mary, Jason, and others hanging by a thread. This season, it looks like there’s some sort of sinister plot brewing in the shadows, while Chrishell’s emotional turmoil takes center stage. From the trailer, it looks like Chrishell and Nicole will end up locked in a fierce verbal battle, setting the tone for a season where alliances are definitely about to be tested. And, oh yeah, real estate.
