You wanted more content and Amazon Prime Video delivered. Jeff Bezos‘ multi-billion dollar entertainment juggernaut is returning with another buffet of binge-worthy content primed to take over your weekend and rule your living room for the next 30 days. Loaded with movies, series, documentaries and a few fan favourites releases, the streaming schedule for November is a mixed bag of good and interesting. From Harry Styles’ quaint period drama cop love story My Policeman to whatever the hell Pete Davidson is doing in Meet Cute, the streaming service isn’t afraid to through a few darts at the map and neither should you. Here’s what is coming to Amazon Prime Video Australia in November 2022.
Best New Series on Amazon Prime
The whole reason we come to the streamer in the first place, new Amazon Prime Video series launches are pure gold. This month, we’ve got a whole host of strange new releases, headlined by one major Middle-American western. Here are the best new series coming to Amazon Prime Video in November 2022.
Hell yeah, Amazon. This looks awesome. An epic chase Western arriving from award-winning writer and director Hugo Blick, The English takes us on a fast-paced journey through 1890 Middle America. A revenge story in every sense of the word, the series follows aristocratic Englishwoman Lady Cornelia Locke, played expertly by Emily Blunt, and a Pawnee ex-cavalry scout, Eli Whipp (Chaske Spencer). The unlikely duo are forced to team up when they stumble across a violent landscape built of the blood and bodies of the past, but that’s just the beginning.
While the pair face differing challenges, they remain unaware that they share a common past. Together, they must face a series of terrifying obstacles designed to test their limits as they draw closer to their ultimate destination—the new town of Hoxem, Wyoming. Here, an investigation by the local sheriff Robert Marshall (Stephen Rea) and young widow Martha Myers (Valerie Pachner) into a series of bizarre and macabre unsolved murders threatens to reveal the dark secret that both Lady Locke and Eli Whipp harbour.
Release Date: 11 November 2022
Fresh off 86ing himself from some of New York’s most elite restaurants, James Corden returns to the small screen in Mammals. The Late Show host plays Jamie, who is (ironically) a famous Michelin star chef whose world implodes when he discovers shocking secrets about his pregnant wife, Amandine. On the hunt for answers with his brother-in-law, Jeff, Jamie uncovers more than he ever thought imaginable and cracks start to appear everywhere he turns, including in Gary’s own relationship. The new six-part series was written by two-time Olivier and Tony Award-winning Jez Butterworth, and tackles some serious issues. Dark by nature, Mammals will probably leave you feeling down but expect a few laughs in the interim.

Best New Movies on Amazon Prime Video
While the quality of Amazon Prime Video films is a bit up and down, this month, the streamer has thrown its weight behind a few major releases. Harry Styles makes his long-awaited leading man debut as a cop struggling with his sexuality in My Policeman, while Elizabeth Banks and Sigourney Weaver join forces in Call Jane. Here are the best new movies on Amazon Prime this month.
The Styles-man’s big movie is finally here. No, not the one that saw him break up a marriage, spit on his co-star and describe the movie as ‘a movie…like a real go-to-the-cinema movie’. In this instance, we’re talking about My Policeman, Harry Styles’ second foray into leading man territory which has garnered mixed reviews.
Described as a story of forbidden love and changing social conventions, My Policeman follows three young people – policeman Tom (Harry Styles), teacher Marion (Emma Corrin) and museum curator Patrick (David Dawson) as they attempt to navigate the intricacies of 1950s romance. Long story short, Tom, who is married to Marion, finds himself grappling with his sexuality after falling head over heels for Patrick upon a chance meeting. Flash-forward to the 1990s and the trio are still trying to make things work, albeit with the added help of hindsight.
By all accounts the film is stellar, however, Styles gets severely outperformed by his co-stars, particularly Dawson, who has all but secured himself as a star of the future. According to The Independent’s Connie Burke, Styles’ dialogue is “often very jolted and unnatural, as if he is just reading from a script and not giving a performance”.
“You can’t help but view him as Harry Styles reading lines, rather than embodying his character and the events and emotions that surround him. Although there are multiple attempts at portraying harsh emotions, all of them seem manufactured and, at times, unnecessary.”
Release Date: 4 November 2022
Set in 1968 Chicago, Call Jane lands right in the heartland of civil unrest. On the surface, the movie starts out as a one-woman show, but as the story surges on, we soon realise there is a deeper message at play here, and thankfully, there is an all-star cast on hand to deliver it. Elizabeth Banks stars as Joy, a conservative housewife and mother who receives a devastating diagnosis when her second pregnancy leads to a life-threatening heart condition. But it simply gets worse from there.
An all-male hospital board denies her exemption for an abortion, forcing Joy to look elsewhere for help. When hope appears all but lost, she stumbles across a clandestine group of women led by Virginia (Sigourney Weaver) and Gwen (Wunmi Mosaku). The two activists and women’s health advocates take Joy under their wing, igniting a flame that burns fiercely within her. A poignant and powerful topic, Call Jane broaches subject matter that is still relevant today, particularly in light of the recently overturned Roe vs Wade decision.
Release Date: 25 November 2022
Somebody needs to stop him. At this point, it’s just getting ridiculous. After making his way through Hollywood’s list of beautiful women A-J, Pete Davidson is firmly in the Ks. Fresh off leaving Kim Kardashian, the former SNL actor now finds himself on a date with Kaley Cuoco, but it’s not that simple. After the two share a perfect first encounter, all appears to be going swimmingly, until we find out that Sheila (Cuoco) planned the whole thing. Turns out Sheila actually owns a time machine and has been forcing Gary (Davidson) to fall in love with her over and over again. When the perfect night is never quite enough, Sheila travels to Gary’s past to change him into the perfect man.
Release Date: 25 November 2022
The People We Hate at the Wedding
Kristen Bell is back in a new comedy that plays off one of the worst experiences you’ll encounter, the wedding of someone you hardly know. The flick follows Alice and her struggling brother Paul after they reluctantly agree to attend the wedding of their estranged but very-wealthy half-sister. Taking to the English countryside along with mother Donna, played by Oscar winner Allison Janney, the siblings run into trouble from the get-go, with skeletons ripped from the closet and family secrets unearthed and laid bare. Awkward, uncomfortable and strangely cathartic, The People We Hate at the Wedding actually looks like a winner.
Release Date: 18 November 2022
New Documentaries on Amazon Prime
This month, Amazon Prime Video has shied away from the documentary side of things, only releasing two, however, they’re both arguably more interesting than the film and TV titles. Here are the best new documentaries coming to Amazon Prime in November 2022.
Savage X Fenty Show Vol.4
After blowing our minds with Vol.3 last year, Rihanna is returning to do it all again in Savage X Fenty Vol.4. The annual fashion experience is set to light up the runway on November 9, taking an A-list lineup of models, actors and musicians to the stage for an all-out assault on our eyes and ears. The celebrities will show off the latest Savage X Fenty styles with a signature flair that includes Emmy award-winning choreography, music and set design. Mark this one in your calendar.
Release Date: November 9
Good Night Oppy
The space race is well and truly on, but let’s not forget about Opportunity, the rover that surpassed all expectations. The remarkable true story of the robotic addition is something to behold. Originally sent to Mars for a 90-day mission, Opportunity wound up spending 15 years on the red planet, providing never-before-seen images of Mars and shattering many of the concepts we thought we know about our solar system. Good Night Oppy follows Opportunity’s ground-breaking journey on Mars and the remarkable bond formed between robot and pilot, despite millions of miles of separation.
Release Date: November 23
