BBC Studios and ITV have announced the BritBox November 2021 titles, which include everything from new BritBox Originals to classic British fare. BritBox is the biggest collection of streaming British television in North America.
The BritBox November 2021 schedule includes Shetland, adapted from award-winning crime writer Ann Cleeves‘ best-selling novels, which will make its anticipated return. BritBox will exclusively release Season 6 of the riveting mystery series with new episodes weekly.
On a lighter note, comedy fans will have something to laugh about this November when The Cleaner premieres on BritBox. The series stars Greg Davies and top tier guest stars such as Helena Bonham Carter (The Crown) and David Mitchell (Peep Show).
The Cleaner follows the wacky life of Wicky, a chatty everyman whose profession as a crime scene cleaner brings him into contact with a quirky cast of characters and sometimes even the killers themselves.
BritBox is available for $6.99 per month or $69.99 per year — after an introductory free trial period — on Roku, Amazon Fire TV stick, Apple TV 4th Gen, Samsung, LG and all iOS and Android devices, AirPlay, Chromecast, and online at BritBox.com.

November 2, 2021: The Cleaner | BritBox Original, North American Premiere, BritBox Exclusive | 6 X 30
Greg Davies (The Inbetweeners) stars as Wicky, a state-certified cleaning technician responsible for the removal of any signs of death from the scenes of ghastly crimes. When the detectives are done, he moves in, armed with his bleach, scrubbing brushes and cleaning rags. He’s a thoroughly decent everyman who always gets the dirty jobs.
Those jobs bring him into contact with the strangest people: those who knew the victims, and sometimes even the killers themselves, portrayed by A-List Guest stars like Helena Bonham Carter (The Crown) and David Mitchell (Peep Show).
But because he’s a chatty man, Wicky tends to gossip more than he cleans. With every crime scene there’s a new topical theme or moral question to debate – with whoever he finds himself talking to. And occasionally, even a clue the detectives have missed.
November 4, 2021: Mock The Week | North American Premiere, BritBox Exclusive | 7 X 30| NOW
These days the weekly news might be easier to take with a touch of comedy. Combining the best elements of a panel show, stand-up and improvised games, this punchy panel show returns with Britain’s top comics taking a satirical swipe at the news and current events.
November 9, 2021: Shetland Series 6 | North American Premiere, BritBox Exclusive | 6 X 60 | Airs Weekly
Based on the best-selling books by award-winning crime writer Ann Cleeves, Shetland follows Detective Jimmy Perez (Douglas Henshall, Outlander) and his team as they investigate crime within the close-knit island community.
In season 6, when a young man disappears on the overnight ferry to Shetland, DI Jimmy Perez and the team embark on a challenging case that leads them from the Shetland Islands to Glasgow.
November 23, 2021: Chef White’s | New to BritBox | 6 X 30
Set in the kitchen of a country house hotel and restaurant in rural Wales, the series follows the trials and tribulations of a head chef and his long suffering sous chef. Alan Davies (QI) stars as Roland White, a celebrity chef who has grand ambitions but is a bit past his sell-by-date. When he can be bothered, Roland cooks up a storm, but for much of the time he leaves the kitchen to his sous-chef, Bib.
Bib should strike out on his own, but can never quite bring himself to abandon Roland because not only are they quarrelsome best friends – they need one another. And besides, they both enjoy a battle of wills with Caroline, the owner, who puts business before genius.
