It’s taken some time to get off the ground, but at last Netflix’s take on Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events has gone before cameras. With it, prying eyes have obtained our first look at Neil Patrick Harris made up as the dastardly Count Olaf, along with a number of other freakish-looking favorites.

The best part of each new month is the stuff that gets added to Netflix. The worst part of each new month is the stuff that gets taken from Netflix. And this month’s list of expiring titles is actually pretty extensive; there’s a Ridley Scott double bill (Black Hawk Down and the theatrical cut of Blade Runner), Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure (Bogus!), the terrific Polish drama Ida, and the surreal horror flick Escape From Tomorrow, which was shot on the grounds of Walt Disney World without the company’s permission.
The short version: There’s lots of new stuff coming to Netflix this May, including the returns of Netflix Originals Bloodline and Grace and Frankie. The second Adam Sandler Netflix movie arrives (that’s The Do-Over, with David Spade), and on the not-made-by-Netflix side of things you’ve got the recent movie version of Goosebumps with Jack Black (which was actually pretty great), Alfred Hitchcock’s To Catch a Thief, and the powerful satire Pleasantville.
Neither comedian Maria Bamford nor showrunner Mitch Hurwitz are too busy with Arrested Development these days, leaving the Netflix field wide open for Bamford to ignite new comedy series Lady Dynamite. Ahead of the May premiere, check out the star-studded trailer, as Maria Bamford loses much more than her marbles.
Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt has consistently brought even more sunshine to spring by its first two premieres, but Season 3 may look at least a little darker. Not only will the Ellie Kemper comedy shoot later in the year than usual, Season 3 will premiere closer to next summer.
You’ve got to figure the notion of a “do-over” has got to be kind of intoxicating to Adam Sandler.
The first photos of Marvel’s Netflix Iron Fist gave us a clearer look at the state of Finn Jones’ Danny Rand, as well a better sense of the production that had Defenders fans worried for years, and now the rest of the cast is going before camera as well. It’s a not-so-friendly reunion, as hippie Danny meets up with Jessica Stroup’s Joy Meachum in the latest photos of Marvel’s Iron Fist.
Marvel’s Netflix Iron Fist wasn’t kidding around with yesterday’s announcement that Jessica Stroup and Tom Pelphrey had completed the cast, given that series star Finn Jones has already begun principal photography in New York. Meet your pre-Iron Fist Danny Rand, as the character returns from K’un Lun, and without any shoes!
Despite all the Defender talk of late, Marvel’s Netflix Iron Fist keeps right on rolling as the next major series to gear up for production. Now that we have our Harold Meachum as well, the time has come to meet Danny Rand’s childhood friends-turned professional rivals, as Jessica Stroup and Tom Pelphrey fill out the Meachum family.
Looks like that bit role in BoJack Horseman Season 1 has finally paid off for Naomi Watts, scoring the actress her very own Netflix drama. Watts will lead 2017 psychological thriller Gypsy as an apparently-terrible therapist, with the first two outings directed by 50 Shades of Grey helmer Sam Taylor-Johnson.
