Next Week in TV 11/6: The Return Of The Crown and The Warrior Nun

By DRWHO42 & Scott C.

At first glance, the lineup for this week may appear light, but after looking at what is coming soon, you will be more than happy with the content. 

First up on the list is the 5th season return of the fan-favorite royal drama on Netflix, The Crown. This season has many casting changes with a time jump and names such as Imelda Staunton (Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix), Jonathan Pryce (Game of Thrones, The Two Popes), Elizabeth Debicki (Tenet, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 & 3), and Jonny Lee Miller (Elementary), to name a few. Fans can catch the season return on Wednesday, November 9th, on Netflix.

The Handmaid’s Tale wraps its 5th season this week on Hulu (Wednesday, November 9th), with the upcoming final season slated for a date yet to be determined. Reported by several news outlets that a follow-up series titled The Testaments were given a green light, and will be set in the years before events viewers witnessed through the eyes of June. More on this upcoming project when more news drops about it.

The second series to mark on your list is the second-season return of the supernatural action series from Netflix, The Warrior Nun. After its debut in the spring of 2020, this fun series has gained a loyal following. We believe thanks to a quick-witted orphan who was killed but only resurrected later with a holy relic embedded within her. Of course, this tool also gives her unique powers. She was then recruited into a secret group of nuns. They are tasked with fighting the forces of evil, which includes demons. Fans catch the return on Thursday, November 10th, on Netflix.

In recent news, Netflix has been quite busy with their recent release of Manifest and various other movies and series, such as Enola Homes 2 and Guillermo del Toro’s Cabinets of Curiosities. This past week the streamer made fans of The Sandman series very happy with the announcement that the series will return for a second season. HBO’s transformation continues with the unfortunate news that Westworld has been canceled after four seasons. Plus, the decision not to proceed with a revival of the popular Canadian school drama Degrassi.

That wraps up what we have for this week. For more information about what else is airing soon, we recommend checking the week’s listing below. Lastly, fans of the blog can follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
