House of Cards recently dropped its fifth season on Netflix: not bad for a series that was originally only ordered for two seasons in an era before high-quality original programming on a streaming service became as common as breathing. The season 5 finale left viewers in a pretty tantalizing place, but will Netflix order House of Cards season 6? Read some comments from the show’s new bosses about how the story will continue if it gets renewed, including a fun tease about Robin Wright’s Claire Underwood being the one to break the fourth wall as the show progresses.

Ozark trailer

I love watching great television shows. But at this point, the rate at which Netflix is dropping new content on its subscribers is almost aggressive. They’re starting to seem like the Joker in The Dark Knight, setting fire to massive piles of cash in a darkened warehouse for no reason other than that they enjoy the chaos of it all. They just want to watch the world burn. And yes, I’m fully aware that I’ve reached peak #firstworldproblems status: I’m actually angry about how many good new shows exist that I want to watch.

And now the streaming service has released a teaser trailer for a dark new drama starring Jason Bateman and Laura Linney called Ozark, and damn it, this one also looks terrific. Watch the first Ozark trailer below.

the witcher tv series

Film adaptations of popular video games are often ill-advised, with nary a successful video game movie to date. It’s a good thing then, that the fantasy video game trilogy The Witcher is actually based on a series of best-selling novels by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski, and that it will be turned into a television series rather than a film.

After years of discussions of a U.S. movie adaptation of the critically acclaimed video games, The Witcher will be coming to Netflix as a TV series.

Stranger Things season 2

In an age in which many of the plot beats of every geek-friendly property are known about months in advance, it’s something of a modern miracle that Stranger Things appeared seemingly out of nowhere last year and took the world by storm. But that anonymity vanished like Barb on a diving board when the show’s popularity exploded, and the second season has become one of the most anticipated television events of the year.

Thankfully, it doesn’t sound like the showrunners are scraping the bottom of the barrel for follow-up material. In a new interview, executive producer and director Shawn Levy reveals that series creators/showrunners the Duffer Brothers actually had too many ideas for a second season, and some of them are being saved for a potential season 3.
