Netflix Movies TV Weekend November 17

What new TV shows and movies are coming to Netflix this weekend? Last week brought offerings like Outlaw King and The Great British Baking Show, and this week there's an eclectic mix of everything from the latest Coen brothers movie to a revival of She-Ra.

As the weather starts to turn cold, there are more reasons than ever to stay bundled up inside on weekends and find something to stream. Netflix has been producing a steady stream of original TV shows and movies and attracting a lot of talent, with this week bringing the news that Buffy the Vampire Slayer writer and producer Marti Noxon has signed a four-year development deal with the platform. We also got a new trailer for the next season of Mystery Science Theater 3000, which is titled The Gauntlet.
