Avenue 5 S2 – streaming in November

A sci-fi comedy originally produced for HBO, Avenue 5 follows the crew and passengers of the interplanetary cruise ship of the same name. A malfunction early in the first season resulted in the space cruise’s original eight-week voyage being extended to three years due to the ship being massively off course. One disaster, one mishap, and one hilarious coincidence after another happened throughout the first season, building up into a series of hilarious bombshells in the finale. Season two promises more black humor escapades as Avenue 5 continues its rocky journey back to earth.

Expect real bite and laughs from Avenue 5 as the show is helmed by Iarmando Iannucci, the legendary satirist behind hits like I’m Alan Partridge, The Thick of It, Veep and The Death of Stalin. The cast of the galactic comedy includes many funny people like Hugh Laurie (House, Black Adder), Josh Gad (Frozen, Pixels), Zach Woods (Silicon Valley, The Office), Rebecca Front (Big Train, Humans) and Suzy Nakamura (The West Wing, Modern Family).

The White Lotus – October 31st

The first season of The White Lotus, a hit of last year, was a raucous satire about various groups of privileged vacationers who stayed at the eponymous Hawaiian hotel chain. The narcissistic behavior of the guests, the mistreatment of the staff and islanders, and the general hubris led to commotion, destruction, and ultimately death as the pitch-black comedy picked up momentum episode after episode. Ahead of the second season, the producers announced that the show would follow an anthology format, with the follow-up series set at a different branch of the hotel chain: The White Lotus Sicily.

The second season will also feature a brand new cast of characters, apart from Jennifer Coolidge (Legally Blonde, American Pie), who is returning from the first series. New stars include F. Murray Abraham (Amadeus, Homeland), Tom Hollander (Gosford Park, Pride & Prejudice), Michael Imperioli (The Sopranos, Goodfellas) and more. Written and directed by School of Rock and Enlightened writer Mike White, the seven-episode series is available to stream beginning Halloween, with new episodes airing weekly throughout November.

The Northman – November 25th

Based on the Scandinavian legend of Amleth, an original inspiration for Shakespeare’s Hamlet, The Northman is a violent, dark and darkly stylish revenge thriller. The film follows Prince Amleth as he tries to repay his father’s betrayal and embarks on a bloody path that will see him fight across Europe, become enslaved and meet the beautiful and mysterious Olga of the Birch Forest.

The Northman is the big-budget debut from breakout horror director Robert Eggers, whose previous period films The VVitch and The Lighthouse earned the filmmaker acclaim for their attention to detail and accuracy, thoughtful visual compositions, and well-directed performances. The Northman has received similar praise, with the addition of violent action scenes said to have expanded Egger’s repertoire. The Northman boasts an all-star cast including Alexander Skarsgård (True Blood, Big Little Lies), Nicole Kidman, Anya-Taylor Joy (Thoroughbreds, Last Night in Soho), Ethan Hawke, Willem Dafoe and Icelandic singer Björk .

Ambulance – November 11th

Former Marines and Afghanistan War veteran Will Sharp is drowning in debt. His wife’s medical bills mount until the pressures leave him with no choice but to turn to his crime-ridden brother, Danny. Will soon finds himself drawn back into the life he thought he left behind when a fraternal heist gone awry leaves the brothers on the manhunt and with the added complication that hostages must be considered.

Directed by Michael Bay, Ambulance is a slightly less budgeted, more low-key affair – at least compared to the director’s usual work. Packed with stunning drone photography, gripping set pieces and surprisingly balanced humor, the film evokes the filmmaker’s pre-Transformers fare. Ambulance is led by Jake Gyllenhaal (Nightcrawler, Brokeback Mountain), Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Trial of the Chicago 7, The Matrix Resurrections) and Eiza González (Baby Driver, Alita: Battle Angel).
