Thus far, first photos of Marvel’s Netflix Iron Fist have given us a pretty good look at Finn Jones’ Danny Rand in full-on hippie mode, but less so that badass warrior fans are hoping for. Now, the latest look is more “The Dude” than The Defenders, but still gives us our first taste of Iron Fist in action.
The anthology nature has prevented Black Mirror fans from ascertaining many details of the upcoming 12-episode Season 3, at least apart from the talent involved. We now have another notable name to add to the list, as Boardwalk Empire and Trainspotting star Kelly Macdonald will appear in one of the new season’s technology parables.
Netflix’s Wet Hot American Summer prequel First Day of Camp pulled off a herculean enough task in reuniting such a broad and prolific cast, few necessarily expected to pull it off again so soon with a Ten Years Later sequel series. According to original star and Stella partner Michael Ian Black however, near of the entire cast has again signed on to reprise their roles.
Blow through Fuller House Season 1 in the span of a day, and need a new fix? You got it, dude. The short turnaround of sitcom production makes it relatively easier for shows like Fuller House to crank out new episodes, and according to John Stamos, Season 2 is coming “a lot sooner than we released last year’s.”
Netflix Wachowski drama Sense8 suffered an inadvertent update on Season 2 by the recasting of actor Aml Ameen, though questions remained if a long lead time and late renewal might push Season 2 out of 2016.

Netflix’s new season of Black Mirror has been in the works long enough to recruit some major names, and now we can add more talent behind the camera as well. 10 Cloverfield Lane director Dan Trachtenberg will helm an episode of the sci-fi anthology, joining Joe Wright, Jakob Verbruggen and more.
It didn’t take for the hype of Jon Bernthal’s Punisher to generate talk of his own Daredevil spinoff, though Marvel and Netflix were quick to keep expectations down, even as Season 2 clearly set the character up for his own adventure. Now, Frank Castle’s war journal is officially open, as Marvel confirms a spinoff, showrunner and all.
We’re still not sure what to make of Netflix hosting its own late-night talk series (it can be hard enough keeping up with the appointment ones), but will Chelsea Handler’s Chelsea start a trend? We’ll find out mid-May, so check out a first look and a new synopsis.
Anyone familiar with Richard Adams’ Watership Down can attest to its grim nature, but an upcoming animated miniseries for The BBC and Netflix at least has a bright outlook on its cast. Not only can Star Wars lead John Boyega and several X-Men count themselves among the new voices, so too can Gemma Arterton and more.
The unadulterated commitment of Netflix’s Wet Hot American Summer prequel series First Day of Camp helped the star-studded David Wain comedy avoid the typical reunion pitfalls, enough that we’re going to do again!
