Netflix launches two major new original programs in November: The Crown, a lavish historical drama about the early years of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles created by Oscar-nominated screenwriter Peter Morgan (The Queen), Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, which picks up with the characters of the hit series over four feature-length films across the four seasons.

Also exclusive to Netflix in November are the documentary The Ivory Game about illegal poaching of elephant ivory, the original comedy True Memoirs of an International Assassin starring Kevin James and produced by Adam Sandler, and the TV series Paranoid from Britain, Case from Iceland and 3% from Brazil.

New films coming to Neflix in November include Disney’s new live-action version of The Jungle Book and the British family comedy Paddington, Richard Linklater’s Boyhood, the Coen Bros.’s Burn After Reading, and the classic The African Queen with Humphrey Bogart and Katharine Hepburn.

Also arriving: the CW series The 100: Season 3 and, for the kids, the Netflix original shows World of Winx: Season 1, Danger Mouse: Season 2, Beat Bugs: Season 2, and All Hail King Julien: Season 4.

Among the programs leaving Netflix in November are The Homesman with Tommy Lee Jones, The American with George Clooney, the modern classic E.T., the animated The Spongebob Squarepants Movie and The Boxtrolls, and the complete runs of the comic spy series Chuck and the animated Powerpuff Girls.
