Doubling up on Netflix’s programming has inevitably let a few through the cracks, but the streaming service is doubling down on star-studded Bill Burr animated comedy F is for Family. The period comedy has officially earned an extended Season 2, announcing as much with more F-bombs than you’ll know what to do with.

It was Daredevil star Charlie Cox who first let slip that Marvel Netflix teamup The Defenders would start shooting before 2016's end, throwing into question Daredevil Season 3, and now we can consider it official. Not only will Daredevil showrunners Marco Ramirez and Doug Petrie helm The Defenders, but Drew Goddard will take an active position as executive producer.
Marvel’s first foray into street-level heroism drew comparisons with The Wire, but Luke Cage may much more accurately wield the title, per showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker. The Netflix series boss opens up on the “sophisticated” approach with a dash of ‘90s hip-hop, while Mike Colter promises a familiar sight for comic fans.
As often tends to be the case with TV, Finn Jones winning the role of Marvel’s Netflix Iron Fist brought troubling implications for his Game of Thrones role as Loras Tyrell, last seen being whisked off to a dungeon in Season 5. Jones will at least return for Season 6, but also claims that Iron Fist and The Defenders wouldn’t prevent him from doing both. Don’t bet on it, though.
Neither Marvel nor Netflix have made particularly clear how the future Defenders series will be scheduled, following Luke Cage’s September premiere, current Iron Fist production, or the others awaiting new seasons, but has Daredevil come to the rescue? Charlie Cox says The Defenders will shoot later this year, potentially setting us up for a 2017 premiere.
Even as Netflix continues expanding its original programming (and upping subscriber rates in the meantime), you’d be hard pressed not to at least notice the epic Marco Polo series. Now, the expensive international series prepares to return for a second season announcing a July debut with the first official teaser.
Lest you think that big death at the center of Netflix’s first Bloodine season would end the drama monsooning the Rayburns, Season 2 is a family affair all its own. The first full trailer for Bloodline Season 2 has arrived, not only revealing Danny’s return, but a host of new guest stars.
Streaming markets are still evolving, between features available, tiered subscriptions, pricing and more, and Netflix, granddaddy of them all, will soon up their prices without a majority of customers realizing. Say goodbye to those grandfathered into the Standard Netflix subscription, as you’ll be forking over an additional $2.00 each month without realizing.
Marvel’s Netflix Iron Fist faces a more uphill battle than some of the other Defenders, but regardless of any controversy surrounding the role, star Finn Jones appears to be doing his homework. The erstwhile Game Thrones star opens up to detail some of his martial arts regiments, spiritual research and more.
One week out from Season 2's premiere (and Tax Day, if you don’t have that in order), Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt at last unveils a first clip, even if its titular heroine is nowhere to be found. See a bag made of internet cats (as well as Anna Camp) in the first extended look at Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Season 2!
