November 2022 Television Preview | Women and Hollywood

If you’re not quite ready to say goodbye to the horror season, you can rest easy that “Wednesday” is launching on Netflix this month (November 23). Jenna Ortega is following up with roles in “Scream” and “X” as a renewed take on the beloved Addams Family character. The supernatural mystery sees Wednesday working to master her psychic abilities and investigate the many mysteries of her school. For those seeking more nostalgia-filled entertainment, November will also mark the premiere of “Blockbuster” (November 3). Created by “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” alumna Vanessa Ramos, the comedy is set in the last blockbuster video store in America.

Documentaries debuting this month include Alexis Eggre’s “Afrofuturism: The Origin Story” (November 10) and Rosa Ruth Boston’s “Master of Light” (November 16). The former highlights the work of Afrofuturist musicians, writers, artists and theorists, and the latter is a portrait of George Anthony Morton, a classical painter who returns to his hometown after spending 10 years in federal prison.

It’s time for a reunion — and then farewell — for “Dead to Me.” The dark comedy, led by Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini, is returning for its third and final season on November 17th. The second season of “The Sex Lives of College Girls,” Mindy Kaling’s campus-set upcoming series, debuts November 17.

Here are the returned November premieres and TV projects run and created by women. All details are from press material unless otherwise noted.
