Television Series Arriving on Netflix, Hulu and Amazon in November 2016

New original and off-network series titles for the month of November will appear on the streaming video services Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime.

One of the most anticipated shows to launch on streaming this year debuts on Netflix the day after Thanksgiving (Nov. 25): “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life,” the update of the recent classic “Gilmore Girls” series that aired for seven seasons on The WB and CW from 2000-07 and starred Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel as a single mother raising her daughter in the fictional town of Stars Hallow where a bevy of colorful characters reside. About all of the show’s original cast returns, including the now-blockbuster movie actress Melissa McCarthy (as Sookie) for this four-episode miniseries with each episode focusing on one of the four seasons of the year, written by Amy Sherman-Palladino and Daniel Palladino, the married couple who were the show’s original creator and writers.

Peter Morgan, who wrote the 2006 film “The Queen” (whose lead star Helen Mirren had won a Best Actress Academy Award), is the man behind Netflix’s “The Crown” (Nov. 4), the American-British project that, to-date, is the service’s most expensive to produce. The series chronicles the 60-year reign of Queen Elizabeth II; her early years will be the focus of the 10-episode first season. The most notable American actor here is John Lithgow (“3rd Rock from the Sun,” “Dexter”) as British prime minister Winston Churchill.

Amazon debuts their new weekly motoring series “The Grand Tour” (Nov. 18) hosted by Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May — all who used to be part of BBC’s “Top Gear” but were unceremoniously let go. The show is slated for 36 episodes over the next three years, with each episode scheduled to be released concurrently in the United States and the United Kingdom.
