Best New Movies & Shows on Netflix for October 11th
Shameless (Season 11)
Genre: Comedy, Drama
Cast: Emmy Rossum, William H. Macy, Ethan Cutkosky
Writer: Paul Abbott, John Wells
Runtime: 46 min
The four-time Emmy-winning Showtime series based on the UK comedy comes to a close with its eleventh season. The series follows the dysfunctional family living on the poverty line in Chicago.
For many, you’ve now been growing up alongside this family for over a decade and in season 11 you’ll be rocking with the Gallaghers one last time before the final credits crawl.
With 134 episodes now available on Netflix, that starts the countdown as to when the show will eventually leave.
Going in Style (2017)
Genre: Comedy, Crime
Director: Zach Braff
Cast: Michael Caine, Alan Arkin, Ann-Margret
Writer: Theodore Melfi, Edward Cannon
Runtime: 96 min
The big new movie highlight of the week is this comedy starring a trio of huge stars including Alan Arkin (The Kominsky Method), Michael Caine and Morgan Freeman.
Here’s what you can expect from the movie:
“Cheated out of their pensions, three lifelong friends hatch a plot to rob a bank. But they have to stay one step ahead of the FBI.”
Reviews for this one were horrific when it first came out but audience scores were far more favorable. If you’ve never had the chance to watch, now you can right now via your Netflix subscription.
Occupation: Rainfall (2020)
Genre: Action, Sci-Fi
Director: Luke Sparke
Cast: Dan Ewing, Temuera Morrison, Daniel Gillies
Writer: Luke Sparke, Dale Dye, Felix Williamson

As we first reported, Netflix is the SVOD home for Occupation: Rainfall for the next couple of years.
The sci-fi thriller that comes from Australia is set shortly after the first Occupation movie (no longer streaming on Netflix) and is set after an alien invasion and sees a resistance group grapple for the future of mankind.
