Take a moment, and think of all the coffee you’ve consumed in the last decade. Now double it, triple that, and you might be somewhere in the neighborhood of Rory and Lorelai since Gilmore Girls first premiered 16 years ago. Don’t take our word for it though, see for yourself in a new retrospective before Netflix’s A Year in the Life.

Lest you think Iron Fist would be the only major Netflix announcement today, Lemony Snicket and his Series of Unfortunate Events have some good … well, unfortunate news for you. Not only is the new adaptation set for a January premiere, you can watch the first teaser right now!
We knew that Luke Cage and New York Comic-Con would likely bring us an update on Marvel’s fourth and final defender, but Netflix pulled a fast one on Iron Fist! Not only do we already have a March 2017 premiere, but also a new photo and teaser!
Anyone who made it through the entirety of Luke Cage knows that the Marvel Netflix series paid homage to the character’s 1970s roots where possible, but primarily focused on more topical implications of a bulletproof black superhero. At least some think the character was most effective in the original blaxploitation context, as Quentin Tarantino claims of his prior idea for a Luke Cage movie.
The timeline of Marvel’s post-Luke Cage Netflix series remains somewhat unclear, a prospect made more confusing by recent reports that Jon Bernthal would soon start filming his Punisher spinoff. Now, new set photos claim filming is already underway, which could put a premiere sometime in the next year.
Netflix managed to form a towering achievement with its Korra-infused Voltron: Legendary Defender update, and Season 2 is already gearing up to reassemble. Ahead of New York Comic-Con, see for yourself in the first Season 2 trailer and photo.
If your Luke Cage binge has ended, there’s only one thing left to do. Okay, eleven things, if you feel compelled to watch ten more times, but we’re talking about the easter egg hunt. There’s plenty overt ones a bit of Iron Fist foreshadowing, but did you know a newspaper clipping puts Back to the Future in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?
Now that everyone has had a chance to binge through Luke Cage, there’s no overlooking the series’ impressive soundtrack. The icing on the cake saw an original “Bulletproof Love” rap performed by Method Man himself in-series, which Marvel has now made available online.
Our last check in with Guillermo del Toro’s Netflix Trollhunters came with the tragic passing of voice actor Anton Yelchin, but the animated series is ready to move forward at New York Comic-Con. New photos from the series reveal a host of magical creatures, while del Toro discusses preserving one of Yelchin’s final roles.
Marvel’s Luke Cage has officially struck out in his own series, but that hasn’t stopped Jessica Jones fans from wondering if Mike Colter’s Hero for Hire will end up hired back to Hell’s Kitchen. Luke and Jessica will at least reunite for The Defenders, while showrunner Melissa Rosenberg teases if Luke might have any role to play in Jessica Jones Season 2.
