Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, starring Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel, comes to Netflix in November.



Netflix premieres a couple of high-profile originals this month, including the much anticipated Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life and Queen Elizabeth II series The Crown. The streaming service also adds some well-reviewed children's movies in Paddington and Disney's The Jungle Book remake, as well as critically acclaimed films from Richard Linklater and the Coen brothers. Yet it's also getting rid of several much-loved movies and television series, including several Cartoon Network series. For a full list, read below:

Nov. 1
The African Queen 

It's no secret that Netflix's classics section leaves something to be desire, but adding John Huston's 1951 adventure-romance is a good start. Starring Humphrey Bogart and Katharine Hepburn as a ship captain and missionary traveling the waters of World War I-era Africa, it's so iconic that Clint Eastwood even made a film (1990's White Hunter Black Heart) roughly based on the making-of of this movie.

Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh 
The Confessions of Thomas Quick 
The Doors

Norman Lear: Just Another Version of You
Pervert Park 

After being on Netflix Instant for a long time, then removed for a while, Antonia Bird's 1999 horror-comedy returns to the streaming service. Following a captain (Guy Pearce) who discovers an isolated man (Robert Carlyle) who had to resort to cannibalism, and may have not given up the habit, the movie is a bracingly unique work, down to its score by Michael Nyman and Blur frontman Damon Albarn.

Burn After Reading
The Coen brothers' 2008 film about gym staff members (Frances McDormand and Brad Pitt) who discover the files of a former CIA employee (John Malkovich) and try to blackmail him was divisive upon release due to its deeply bleak comedy, to the point that it has become perhaps their most underrated film. Certainly, its swirling mix of espionage and ineptitude feels timely in this election season.

3% (Season 1)
Netflix has slowly been adding recent Oscar winners to its repertoire, starting with 2015 Best Picture contenders Spotlight and The Big Short before moving onto 2014 with The Imitation Game and now this Richard Linklater film. Filmed and following characters (including Oscar winner Patricia Arquette) over 12 years, the movie is one of the most formally audacious works of recent memory.
Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life 
The cult '00s show about single mother Lorelai (Lauren Graham) and daughter Rory (Alexis Bledel) returns for a four-episode mini-series, with each episode based on a season of the year. Netflix's resurrection of old shows like Arrested Development and Mr. Show has had mixed results so far, but perhaps the brevity of Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life will work to its advantage.
