First up, the streaming service will be looking to replicate the success of Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale with a six-art adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s period drama Alias Grace.

There’s also the second season of Maria Bamford’s Lady Dynamite, a hilarious and affecting look at her real-life struggles with mental illness. Then, on 17th November, Marvel’s The Punisher arrives to avenge the murders of his family.

There are some fantastic new and classic films arriving, including Netflix’s Oscar hopeful Mudbound, which takes a look at race relations in rural America in the wake of World War II, and Weiner, a scarcely believable documentary following former US congressman Anthony Weiner (the husband of Hilary Clinton advisor Huma Abedin) in the wake of a major sex scandal which forced him out of office.
