All this week’s Netflix Originals (Available from Friday 17th November 2017)

One of the great things about Netflix are their Netflix Originals – be it films or series made by Netflix themselves or exclusive content available only on Netflix after it airs on regular TV. Every week we will give you a round-up of new Netflix Originals becoming available in the next week. We will aim to post every week on Thursday evening with what will be available over the coming week. Perfect if you’re looking to check out what new Originals are available to watch over your weekend or if you’re planning a week-long Netflix binge watch! This area is exclusively for Netflix Originals, for general Netflix additions and removals or to view the current full catalogue check out your regional New On Netflix website.

We may have been kidded into believing Netflix weren’t adding as much original content this month. This week sees no less than 15 additions to the Netflix Original content. Two films, three documentaries, five series, four kids content, one stand up comedy special and a partridge in a pear tree… too soon? Sorry. This should keep us all busy this week… buckle up…!

  1. Can you have separate posts for regions? I was really excited about Longmire S06… :'( It’s not until you’ve already watched the trailer that you see “Available only in the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand from Friday 17th November 2017”

    1. Hi Will
      Thank you for your comment. I can see how that would be frustrating and from next week I will write any geographical information below the title where possible. Thank you for bringing this to my attention.
      Laura 🙂

    2. In general the Netflix Originals are global so it makes sense to have it in a single post. Where known we do mention the country-restrictions (it was also mentioned in this post)…
