Doctor Who fans have long waited to see where Matt Smith would next head after abdicating the TARDIS (and seriously, has anyone seen him in Terminator Genisys promos yet?), and Netflix has emerged as the lucky recipient. Smith, John Lithgow and Claire Foy have all joined up for Netflix’s new prestige drama, The Crown.
Ashton Kutcher’s sitcom return behind Charlie Sheen’s Two and a Half Men departure seemed like a welcome bit of nostalgia, one Netflix aims to double down on in returning Kutcher to TV alongside his That ‘70s Show castmate. Danny Masterson will join Kutcher on new comedy The Ranch, which also brings with it a new distribution model for Netflix.
Netflix has had their share of escapees, from the House of Cards early leak to Daredevil’s red costume, but Orange is the New Black Season 3 earned an early release all on its own.

'Orange is the New Black' Season 3 cuts the outside clutter for a sharply-focused run both sadder and more hilarious than ever. Our early spoiler-free review, before all episodes premiere on Netflix June 12!
Marvel’s Netflix Daredevil has sparked plenty of rumors and speculation that The Punisher might make his MCU debut, but never had we thought Season 2 had already cast him, and so well!

A few days ago, world institutions broke down and cats and dogs began cohabitation with news that longrunning high school drama Degrassi would at last end its run, but as tends to be the case these days, it wasn’t long before Netflix rescued the series. Degrassi will officially reemerge on Netflix as Next Class, but what changes lie in store?
Things seems strangely quiet for Litchfield as Orange is the New Black prepares to debut all 14 (!) episodes of Season 3 this Friday, but in lieu of a new trailer, the Netflix prison drama offers a stimulating new featurette on everyone’s favorite couple. Alex and Piper generate plenty of sparks, as newcomer Ruby Rose previews “the sexiest season by far” in a new featurette.
Marvel’s Netflix Jessica Jones series added a bit of distinction in titling itself AKA Jessica Jones alongside the addition of Krysten Ritter, but unlike Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Marvel has decided to let simplicity prevail. Periods be damned, the second Defenders series will henceforth be known as Marvel’s Jessica Jones.
Late last week, news that Daredevil Season 2 might target Spy star and action hero Jason Statham for the villainous Bullseye was met with near-overwhelming acclaim, and today those million voices crying out have been suddenly silenced.
