As ever, a new month means new television to watch – and on Disney+ that can mean a deluge of originals, exclusives, and old favourites to wade through.
It can be difficult to make sense of what’s coming to Disney, so we’ve organised the streaming service’s November releases into a list of dramas, comedies, documentaries, films, and international series.
Here’s your guide to everything that’s new on Disney+ UK this November, with a few highlighted top picks to help you decide what to watch.
Tell Me Lies | Friday 11 November
Lucy Albright and Stephen DeMarco quickly fall into an addictive entanglement that will permanently alter their lives and the lives of everyone around them; a tumultuous and intoxicating relationship unfolds over eight years. Grace van Patten (Tramps, Under the Silver Lake) stars in this drama that was popular on Hulu in the US, based on the book by Carola Lovering.
The Patient | Wednesday 30 November
A serial killer named Sam Fortner takes a therapist, Alan Strauss, hostage. Alan must attempt to stop Sam from killing again — and avoid becoming his next victim. Steve Carrell and Domhnall Gleeson star in this 9x30min psychological thriller from the creator of The Americans.
Reboot | Tuesday 1 November
An early 2000s family sitcom is rebooted, and the dysfunctional cast and crew must deal with their unresolved issues in today’s fast-changing world. Keegan-Michael Key (Key & Peele), Judy Greer (Arrested Development), and Rachel Bloom (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend) star in this comedy from Modern Family creator Steve Levitan. (I’ve seen some already and it’s the best show on the list, well-worth your time.)
