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.
Over the years, Netflix has put a massive dent in DVD sales, and, if they have their way, they could be doing the same to theatrical movie ticket sales. The movie streaming/DVD rental service wants more than their library of available titles and original content: they want movies just a few weeks after they hit theaters. But, will it ever happen?
The efficacy of Netflix's model of releasing entire original series at once has yet to be proven, but it seems Amazon has decided to split the difference when it comes to debuting its first original series 'Alpha House' and 'Betas' over the coming month. Amazon will release several episodes at once before shifting into a weekly format, but when can we see either star-studded effort?
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.'
Though only a few months removed from the series finale and intensely divisive final season, 'Dexter' will have us back on the table before long. Netflix has announced that the first four seasons will be available to stream on the site beginning this upcoming Halloween Thursday, with the final four seasons to follow shortly thereafter in 2014.
‘Orange Is the New Black‘ breakout star Samira Wiley helped solidify the Netflix drama as a major contender and centerpiece of the cultural conversation for its unique depiction of women in the correctional system, as per 'Weeds' creator Jenji Kohan's vision. Fans adored Wiley's recurring character Poussey Washington (accent à droite, b-tch!) and her unique relationship with Taystee (Danielle Brooks), but what does Wiley herself have to say about season 2 and beyond?
A few weeks ago we heard the distressing news that Netflix's 'House of Cards' season 2 would likely end the series altogether, given leading star Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright's pressing film careers, but it seems the breakout political drama may have hope after all. Netflix brass now believe a third season to be in the 'Cards,' with negotiations already underway.
