Tiger King 2 (new on Netflix)

Hoping to recapture lightning in a bottle, on Nov. 17, Netflix will stream The Tiger King 2, revisiting the twists and turns of the Joe Exotic and Carole Baskin feud. Little has been released about the series but Baskin has sued Netflix for unauthorized use of her image in the sequel. For fans of international crime thrillers, Lies and Deceit drops Nov. 12. The show about a woman who accuses a surgeon of rape was a big success in Spain and will now be available for a worldwide audience. Fans of Hot Archie will also be happy to note that a new season of Riverdale also drops on Nov. 17.

And finally, for the Christmas-obsessed, Vanessa Hudgens returns in The Princess Switch 3: Romancing the Star on Nov. 18. Building on the previous Prince and the Pauper premise, this film introduces a third Hudgens lookalike for added holiday hijinks.

Eyes Wide Shut (new on Crave / HBO)

A whole lot of holiday content drops on Crave + HBO starting Nov. 12, from Adam Sandler’s Eight Crazy Nights, Bad Santa, Love Actually to Eyes Wide Shut and Batman Returns (among others). You can still watch Comedy Central’s All-Star Non-Denominational Christmas Special for those with just the basic package, though, so it’s not a total wash. A new series starring Christina Ricci and Juliette Lewis called Yellowjackets (about young women surviving in the Ontario wilderness after a plane crash) drops its first episode on Nov. 14 at 10 p.m.
