There's a whole new batch of titles headed to Netflix Instant, from modern classics to old favorites. Read on for our guide to the best movies coming to Netflix this December.
It just won't die! That's right, AMC's rain-drenched murder-mystery drama 'The Killing' has once again been saved from cancellation for a fourth season, though not by its original network. Following its lucrative partnership to co-finance the third season, Netflix will become the new home for 'The Killing' season 4, providing a shortened and final season for detectives Holder and Linden.
Just when you thought Marvel would take a breath following news that its upcoming 'Daredevil' Netflix series had hired Drew Goddard to write it, the scribe behind 'Jessica Jones' has been brought to light as well. 'Dexter' and 'Twilight' writer Melissa Rosenberg will pen the 'Jessica Jones' Netflix series, but don't let those first two names scare you off just yet.
'Orange is the New Black' fans were heartbroken to learn that season 2 would feature far less of Laura Prepon's character Alex Vause, some reports claiming figures as low as a solitary episode. Now, with season 2 still on track for 2014, a new report suggests that Prepon will in fact return for four episodes total, even allowing an open-ended return in season 3.
We're still reeling from the announcement that Marvel and Netflix will bring together four separate TV series for 'Daredevil,' 'Jessica Jones,' 'Iron Fist' and 'Luke Cage,' before placing the foursome together in a 'Defenders' miniseries event, but new details have emerged to have fans drooling: 'LOST' executive producer and 'The Cabin in the Woods' helmer Drew Goddard has reportedly signed on to write the 'Daredevil' series for 2015!
We're still reeling from Marvel's bombshell announcement of four new Netflix original series for 'Daredevil,' 'Jessica Jones,' 'Iron Fist' and 'Luke Cage,' eventually forming their own miniseries 'The Defenders,' but questions will continue to pour in over the long wait until 2015. For instance, does Disney believe the heroes could still lead to their own films? What about the proposed 'Agent Carter' series?
Remember that mysterious four-series and a miniseries deal that Marvel TV had supposedly been working on a few weeks back? Well, forget all about an 'Agent Carter' spinoff to follow 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,' it seems the Marvel heroes of Hell's Kitchen will finally get their due, as Netflix will host four new original live-action series for 'Daredevil,' 'Jessica Jones,' 'Iron Fist' and 'Luke Cage,' before an epic 'The Defenders' miniseries event!
It's been a good long while since we've heard anything from the front of 'Lilyhammer,' what with discussions of Netflix's more breakout original entries like 'House of Cards' and 'Orange Is the New Black.' At long last, however, it seems the Steve Van Zandt ('The Sopranos')-starring 'Lilyhammer' season 2 has a December premiere date and a brand-new trailer to back it up.
It's been a good long while since we've heard anything on the front of Netflix's 10-episode project 'Sense8' with the Wachowski siblings, but it seems our first official details have finally arrived, courtesy of 'Babylon 5' creator and 'Sense8' writer J. Michael Straczynski. Are you ready to find out what links 8 mysterious individuals across the globe in the latest Wachowski yarn?
Given Netflix's relatively green status as a host of original "TV" content, we were surprised to learn that Kevin Spacey Emmy-nom 'House of Cards' might have come to an end after its second season, with the futures of other Netflix Originals equally uncertain. Now, Netflix exec Ted Sarandos has opened up on the future of the series, along with the lifespans for fellow series 'Orange Is the New Black' and 'Arrested Development.'
