Here’s a guide to what’s new and streaming in November 2023 in Canada.
The Crown (Season 6, Part 1)
The first half of The Crown’s final season sees a relationship blossom between Princess Diana (Elizabeth Debicki) and Dodi Fayed (Khalid Abdalla) before a fateful car journey has devasting consequences. Later, Prince William (Rufus Kampa and later Ed McVey) tries to integrate back into life at Eton in the wake of his mother’s death as the monarchy has to ride the wave of public opinion.

A Murder at the End of the World
A Murder at the End of the World is a new mystery series “with a new kind of detective” at the helm in Gen Z amateur sleuth and tech-savvy hacker named Darby Hart (played by Emma Corrin). Darby and eight other guests are invited by a reclusive billionaire (Clive Owen) to participate in a retreat at a remote and dazzling location. When one of the other guests is found dead, Darby must put to use all of her combined skills to prove it was in fact murder, all against a tide of competing interests and before the killer takes another life. The series also stars Brit Marling, Harris Dickinson and Alice Braga.
In Canada, FX’s A Murder at the End of the World will stream on Disney+ beginning Tuesday, Nov. 14.
Emma Stone, Nathan Fielder and Benny Safdie star in The Curse, a genre-bending series that explores how an alleged curse disturbs the relationship of a newly married couple as they try to conceive a child while co-starring in their new home-improvement show. The series was co-created by Safdie and Fielder. Guest stars include Barkhad Abdi, Corbin Bernsen, and Constance Shulman.
Showtime’s The Curse streams on Paramount+ in Canada beginning Nov. 10.
Based on the novel by Thomas Mallon, Follow Travellers stars Matthew Bomer and Jonathan Bailey in an epic love story and political thriller. Bomer plays charismatic Hawkins Fuller, who maintains a financially rewarding, behind-the-scenes career in politics. Hawkins avoids emotional entanglements – until he meets Tim Laughlin (Bailey), a young man who’s brimming with idealism and religious faith. They begin a romance just as Joseph McCarthy and Roy Cohn declare war on “subversives and sexual deviants,” initiating one of the darkest periods in 20th-century American history. Over the course of four decades, we follow our five main characters – Hawk, Tim, Marcus (Jelani Alladin), Lucy (Allison Williams) and Frankie (Noah J. Ricketts) – as they cross paths through the Vietnam War protests of the 1960s, the drug-fueled disco hedonism of the 1970s and the AIDS crisis of the 1980s while facing obstacles in the world and within themselves.
Showtime’s Fellow Travelers is now streaming on Paramount+ in Canada. The 8-episode miniseries was filmed in Toronto.
The Buccaneers are the daughters of America’s “new rich” – beautiful and untameable, despite the best efforts of England’s finest governesses, they are on their way to London in the 1870s to snare themselves an aristocrat, low in funds but high in class, to make a perfect match. Kristine Frøseth, Conchita Closson, Josie Totah, Aubri Ibrag, Imogen Waterhouse, Christina Hendricks, Mia Threapleton, Josh Dylan, Guy Remmers, Matthew Broome, and Barney Fishwick star.
