Those who can't get enough of British and Aussie TV have lots to look forward to in the month of November. That's because the streaming service Acorn TV, which is dedicated to these types of titles, just announced its upcoming lineup that features series that are just waiting to be binge-watched.
This includes the release of the Acorn TV original series Close to the Enemy, a drama that follows an officer and a scientist who form a friendship post-WWII that is not really as it seems. The series is yet to have an official release date, but will be available to stream exclusively for subscribers to coincide with its premiere on BBC.
Other series worth checking out is the Aussie thriller Deep Water that will debut on Nov. 7, as well as season twp of The Code, which was just added in October.
Raised by Wolves is also back for a new season. It's the hilarious sitcom about a single mother and her awkward kids.
Seems like a great time to add the service, which costs $4.99 a month, for watching fall TV from across the pond.
Here's the complete list of movies and TV series being added to Acorn TV in November.
