From a family mystery to a period western, the first week of November brings some exciting binge-worthy material.

Fall is a hot season for new, highly anticipated premieres. Major streaming services are doing their best to treat their users to compelling new movies and series, which is especially important this year when many broadcast shows have failed to release new seasons.

If you are looking for a worthy project to binge on this weekend, here are five new anticipated titles the major platforms start streaming in the next few days.
