As we end October, we can now look forward to what November will provide us on Netflix. One of the biggest titles to arrive tomorrow, Friday the 1st of November is The King. But what time will The King be on Netflix? Let’s find out.
The King is an upcoming Netflix Original historical drama based on the Henriad plays of William Shakespeare. Over the course of history, the Henriad plays have only been adapted three times, four if you include the Netflix adaptation. BBC’s, The Holly Crown, was arguably the biggest production, as it covered the entire tetralogy, but with the addition of The King, visually, this could be the best adaptation yet. The Original has been directed by David Michôd, his second Netflix Original after War Machine.
Hal, the wayward prince, and reluctant heir to the English throne has turned his back on royal life and is living among the people. But when his tyrannical father dies, Hal is crowned King Henry V and is forced to embrace the life he had previously tried to escape. Now the young king must navigate the palace politics, chaos and war his father left behind, and the emotional strings of his past life including his relationship with his closest friend and mentor, the aging alcoholic knight, John Falstaff.
