Just yesterday, we confirmed that House of Cards would move from its winter perch to premiere in April or beyond, and leave it to Frank Underwood to pull focus with a dramatic announcement. Season 5 is coming in May, and the first teaser somehow manages to make America bleak again.

Oft-stated throughout 2016 was the sentiment that even heightened political realities like House of Cards would find our real-life election far-fetched. Now, with inauguration looming, Season 5 has a bitter climate to debut against, and may not premiere until April (or later), per a recent shareholder report.
Orange Is the New Black has had its share of turnover and a few cast departures over the years, so when word broke that Taryn Manning might be taking Pennsatucky out of Litchfield and off the show altogether, fans were understandably dismayed. Fear not, however, as Manning herself stepped up to debunk the rumors.
It may not have the fanfare of its predecessor, but Netflix’s Voltron: Legendary Defender is nonetheless back for Season 2 this very Friday, and looking pretty divided, at that. Our first clips from the new season sees the disparate team members exploring some strange new territory, including underwater worlds, and … a giant pile of garbage. Onward!
If you thought Netflix’s commitment to stand-up comedy was big before, between new specials for Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle and Amy Schumer, read the Sein. Not only has Jerry Seinfeld inked a deal for two new standup specials, but the entirety of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, past and future, will move to Netflix.
Stranger Things creators Matt and Ross Duffer original cut their teeth with FOX’s M. Night Shyamalan-produced Wayward Pines, and now the Sixth Sense and Split director may be looking for them to return the favor. By his own admission, Shyamalan is game to direct an episode of Stranger Things, but is it already too late?
In a world where Rogue One can fold in Star Wars Rebels canon and vice-versa, it can be frustrating for Marvel fans that the movie and TV sides haven’t had any real back-and-forth characters. Someone like Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin would seem like a natural fit, even in passing reference, but the Daredevil star sadly believes “It makes sense not to mix the TV stuff.”
Let’s face it: no one knew quite what to do with the notion of Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant in a dark family comedy for Netflix, at least until they threw in the blood. Yes, the Santa Clarita Diet has far more going on beneath the surface, and that bloody truth comes to light in a first full trailer for the February premiere.
We’ve still one more Marvel Netflix series to go before The Defenders hit the block, but the team is already hard at work in the newest photos. See for yourself, as Iron Fist takes on a masked criminal, and Jessica Jones goes out for a stroll in new previews of the team-up miniseries.
Apart from Jessica Jones, Daredevil will prove the Defender we’ve lost touch with the most, by the time Marvel’s four-way Netflix teamup debuts this summer. Season 2 left us on a semi-hopeful note of Matt making a surprise admission to Karen, but according to Charlie Cox, Matt will have taken things much further by the time The Defenders opens.
