A new year is just around the corner and if you’re wondering what new British productions Netflix has coming up for 2024 and beyond, you’ve come to the right place. Below, we’ll break down all the currently announced new British movies, series and documentaries in the works. 

Please remember that this doesn’t represent every movie and series currently in development at Netflix. There are a few that we’re not allowed to mention just yet, including a hotly anticipated new series from a writer who has produced some excellent titles for Netflix so far.

There are also plenty of shows and movies that should probably be listed here but won’t be. That’s because of how entwined US and UK projects tend to be, with some more US-produced series like The Witcher also falling into the UK camp with most of the filming taking place here. For the purpose of keeping this article readable, we’ll be sticking to projects that have primarily British talent both in front and behind the camera.

For more on what’s coming to Netflix throughout 2024 on Netflix – keep it locked here on What’s on Netflix.


New British Movies Coming Soon to Netflix

While Netflix picked up the exclusive rights to the movie in the UK for release in January 2023, it wasn’t until later in the year that other regions licensed the movie from WME Independent and Samuel Goldwyn Films. The streamer did, however, order a sequel that it would have outright in April 2023 with director Chris Foggin returning.

Filming on the sequel is due to get underway in early 2024 (most suggest cameras will begin rolling in February), with the sequel, according to one of the production companies, set to be released on Netflix by the end of the year.

At one point, the movie was due to release on Netflix in late 2023 but given that’s not yet to happen, we can presume that it’ll be dropping within the first half of 2024.

Philip Martin is directing the movie, with Peter Moffat having penned the script. Among the cast for the movie are Gillian Anderson, Romola Garai, Rufus Sewell, and Billie Piper.

Fresh off their second major Netflix project in the form of a long-awaited sequel to Chicken Run, Bristol-based Aardman Animations are hard at work on their next animated movie for Netflix based on the classic duo of Wallace & Gromit.

Merlin Crossingham and Nick Park are directing the new animated movie, and the BBC is also involved with its distribution.

Here’s the current plotline for the upcoming sequel:

“Focus on Gromit’s concern that Wallace has become over-dependent on his inventions, which proves justified when Wallace invents a “smart gnome” that seems to develop a mind of its own.”
