All the new movies and shows heading to Amazon Prime Video in November 2021

The Wheel of Time

Another new month brings with it another new batch of exciting releases on Amazon Prime Video. For one thing, there's a whole host of movies coming to Prime Video in the US – you can get stuck into the Alien series, starting with the 1979 original, or lighten the mood with a comedy like Crazy, Stupid, Love or Rushmore. Across the pond in the UK, you can catch Ad Astra, Doctor Sleep, and more. It's a great time to get stuck into a new series, too – UK viewers can start binge-watching all four seasons of comedy-drama Ugly Betty or action drama Scorpion. 

As for Amazon Originals, there are plenty of those as well. In the US, there's biographical drama The Electrical Life of Louis Wain, starring Benedict Cumberbatch, while brand new fantasy epic The Wheel of Time is available to watch on both sides of the pond – the first three episodes drop at once, and then they're releasing weekly after that. Happy streaming. 

The Electrical Life of Louis Wain – November 5 (US only)

In a career move no one could see coming, Benedict Cumberbatch plays an eccentric British man in this new movie. Based on a true story, Cumberbatch is Louis Wain, an artist known for drawing anthropomorphized cats – he rose to prominence at the end of the 19th Century, and was also suspected to have had schizophrenia. Claire Foy, Andrea Riseborough, and Toby Jones also star, with supporting turns from Olivia Colman, Taika Waititi, Sophia DiMartino, and Richard Ayoade.

The Wheel of Time – November 19

Prime Video may be bringing us the Lord of the Rings TV show next year, but while we wait there's another epic fantasy show on the way. The Wheel of Time is also based on a series of books, and stars Rosamund Pike as a member of a powerful organization of women who can use magic. She takes a group of five young people on a journey around the world, believing one of them might be the prophesied reincarnation of the Dragon.

Hanna season 3 – November 24 (US only)

Hanna is back – the action series returns for a third season, which showrunner David Farr has said is the show's "final act". Based on the 2011 movie of the same name, Esme Creed-Miles stars as the titular character (played by Saoirse Ronan in the film), a girl raised in the wilderness and trained as an assassin by Erik, ex-CIA operative (The Suicide Squad's Joel Kinnaman). Expect plenty of action as the series' events come to a head.
