Coming to Netflix in November: ‘Alias Grace,’ ‘The Punisher,’ ‘Godless’ and more

RECOMMENDED READING


There are only two months left in 2017, but Netflix isn't slowing down premiering original films and series.

Among the 32 Netflix original premieres or returning series are Alias Grace, based on the Margaret Atwood novel; Marvel's The Punisher; Western drama Godless; and She's Gotta Have It, a contemporary update to Spike Lee's 1986 indie film.

Happy November, TV nerds.

Casper

A young mischievous ghost peacefully haunts an old mansion and ends up falling in love with one of its new inhabitants. The 1995 film was also one of the first to have a fully CGI character in a leading role. Nov. 1

Silent Hill

This addition would've been great for the Halloween season. Based on the horror video game, the 2006 film follows a mother who takes her daughter to the mystical Silent Hill, which the daughter cries out for when she's sleepwalking. Their car crashes and the young girl goes missing, forcing the mom to dig deep into the town's sinister history. Nov. 1

Alias Grace

In 1843, Irish immigrant Grace Marks was convicted of the murders of her employer and his housekeeper in northern Canada. She spent 30 years in jail before being released. The new Netflix series is based on the Margaret Atwood novel of the same name and attempts to paint a portrait of Grace before and after she was a "celebrated murderess." Nov. 3

The Punisher

Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal), a.k.a. The Punisher was first introduced in Netflix's Daredevil series. He's based on the Marvel comics character, a military veteran who ruthlessly hunts down criminals in the New York City underworld. He's certainly one of Marvel's most dangerous anti-heros. Nov. 17

Godless

The inciting incident for this Wild West series is a mining accident that wipes out all the men in a small western town. The series follows the surviving women of La Belle, a town that quickly becomes embroiled in a bloody feud between a gang leader and a former member. Michelle Dockery (Downton Abbey) stars alongside Jeff Daniels and Jack O'Connell. Nov. 22

She's Gotta Have It

The new series is a contemporary update of Spike Lee's debut independent film of the same name. It follows Nola Darling (DeWanda Wise), a Brooklyn artist in her late 20s struggling to define herself and divide her time amongst her friends, job and her three lovers. Lee is back to direct the entire series and serve as creator and executive producer. Nov. 23
