Amazon Prime Video November 2018 new releases: the best TV shows and movies streaming this month

Julia Roberts in Homecoming, Outlander season 4 and Lynn Ramsay's You Were Never Really Here arrive this month


It seems as if we’re about to enter a rather prolific period for Amazon Prime Video.


The streaming service is stepping things up a gear in November 2018 with Homecoming, a psychological thriller led by star Julia Roberts in her first TV role.

They’re further bolstered by intriguing-looking German drama, Beat, the fourth season of time-travelling romance Outlander and a documentary, 20 years in the making, about British pop group Coldplay.

And this is all before the release of multi award-winning comedy The Marvellous Mrs Maisel season two in December and Neil Gaiman epic Good Omens in the new year…
