No judgment; we got to do what we got to do to fill the pandemic induced void.
There are two months left in 2020. It’s time to clean up the mess, get your shit together and relax. Here’s a roundup of upcoming Netflix shows, films and TV series you won’t want to miss this month.

Think X-men meets The Umbrella Academy. If that is not convincing enough, the comic book turned television series stars Lana Condor from To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before.
Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil start as college lovers who break up and reunite eight years later as different people, but one thing they haven’t outgrown is their love for one another. The two lovers are challenged to figure out what they truly want for themselves in terms of career and relationships.
Dash & Lily
Based on the Young Adult novel, Dash & Lily is the romantic feel-good movie we all need for the holidays.

Dolly Parton’s Christmas on the Square
Have a Dolly Holiday with this Christmas musical. The film includes 14 songs by Dolly Parton who also happens to be an angel. Christine Baranski plays the scrooge-like character who returns to her hometown to evict everyone but discovers the true meaning of Christmas thanks to the local town folks and of course the resident angel.
Shawn Mendes: In Wonder
Netflix has blessed us yet again with another pop star documentary. In Wonder highlights Shawn Mendes’ journey to self-discovery and his rise to fame in the music industry. The film showcases his home life and public eye encounters. But what we’re all excited for are the scenes including his current girlfriend, Camilla Cabello.
Netflix has recently released the trailer for the upcoming South Korean horror film The Call starring Park Shin-Hye from #Alive and Jeon Jong-Seo from Burning.
The film revolves around Seo-Yeon (Park) who answers a phone call from Young-Sook (Jeon), a woman living 20 years in the past. The two become friends until Seo Yeon finds out she’s been talking to a serial killer the whole time.
You know the drill, grab your favorite snacks and sweatpants! There is a lot to get through with these new Netflix shows. And on behalf of Wonder, we wish you a very cozy November!
