The ten-year production of Netflix’s Making a Murderer leaves it unclear what a confirmed second season will chronicle, but there may at least be some in-house drama to start. Following Avery’s recent words decrying series breakout laywers Jerry Buting and Dean Strang, the former has now made a statement on his ex-client’s claims.
More than another Defender series, Luke Cage is building a tremendous amount of anticipation for its musical stylings, including Adrian Younge and Ali Shaheed Muhammad composing. Episode titles are even named for hip-hop duo Gang Starr, for which showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker now reveals the first three.
It looks for a moment as if Will Arnett’s Netflix sobriety dramedy Flaked might go down as one of the streaming service’s first one-and-done series, but consider the tab open. Flaked has officially confirmed a Season 2 renewal, keeping Arnett with a minimum of three major Netflix roles.
It’s always possible that Arrested Development Season 5 finally gets its s— together in the next year, but in the meantime, creator Mitch Hurwitz wants to re-release Season 4 entirely. Hurwitz confirms that a network-style 22-episode, 22-minute re-edit of the fragmented Season 4 sits on the shelf, with “totally different storytelling.”
Netflix’s day in court at the TCA press tour would seem the appropriate time to take a Stranger Things victory lap, and confirm that second season producers seem so eager to implement, so what’s the holdup? Netflix explains when Stranger Things might finally get to work on Season 2, while creators the Duffer brothers offer their thoughts.
For as long and Marvel and Netflix have been putting out series, we’ve had to wonder about release strategy. Two per year has remained the norm; first Daredevil and Jessica Jones in 2015, then Daredevil Season 2 and Luke Cage in 2016, and with Marvel now confirming renewal for the former, as well a Punisher spinoff, it seems all else will wait until after The Defenders.
Once the patron saint of TV rescues, Netflix seems more focused on its own original content than picking up stragglers, but the wealth of Marvel content had Agent Carter fans optimistic Peggy might live out Season 3 on the streaming service. Sadly not so, as Netflix bosses now admit “it was a business decision more than a creative one.”
Appropriate for its emphasis on the evils of technology, Black Mirror has managed to keep Season 3 largely under wraps with its move to Netflix. Now, the streaming service at last confirms new episodes will arrive in October, albeit not the full twelve ordered in the initial deal.
Last we heard of Arrested Development Season 5 (and mind you, we’ve been hearing for years), Will Arnett thought Netflix bosses “need to get their s— together” to make it happen. Well, good news! According to creator Mitch Hurwitz, said s— has perhaps indeed come together, enough for a potential early 2017 production. Let’s immediately get our hopes up!
The internet was beside itself with anticipation at news that Gilmore Girls would return for A Year in the Life, and it won’t be that long before it’s a part of your own life.
