glow season 2

By the time 2017 is over, close to 500 scripted television shows will be out there for the masses to consume. So it’s not too surprising that Netflix – a company which, early in its experimentation with original programming, often renewed its shows for multiple seasons – is starting to outwardly feel the strain of Peak TV.

Their latest casualty? The Naomi Watts series Gypsy, which has officially been canceled. But while Watts’ intimate therapist isn’t coming back to the streaming service after only one season, the gorgeous ladies of wrestling will be stepping back in the ring after their triumphant debut: Netflix has given the go-ahead for GLOW season 2.

American Vandal trailer

With Making a Murderer, Amanda Knox, and The Keepers, Netflix has fully embraced the true crime documentary format in a big way, and those projects generated significant buzz surrounding the streaming service.

At first glance, their new docu-series American Vandal looks like another project that fits alongside the aforementioned docs, but it wasn’t long before I realized this show – which, yes, centers on spray-painted penis drawings – is actually Netflix’s way of satirically mocking the very format it’s seemingly leaned into in the past few years.

What Happened to Monday trailer

Netflix has unveiled a new trailer for a dystopian thriller called What Happened to Monday that features Noomi Rapace (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) playing seven identical twin sisters whose very existence is a crime: they’ve secretly grown to adulthood in a world in which every family is only allowed to have one child. This looks like a ridiculously fun B-movie, and I can’t wait to check it out. Watch the trailer below.

After years of laying groundwork, Marvel Television and Netflix are finally ready to bring their ground-level superheroes together in The Defenders, which arrives on the streaming service less than a month from now. Now they’ve released a new The Defenders trailer narrated by none other than Marvel’s legendary former editor Stan Lee, and it also gives a quick glimpse at a character who many wondered if we’d be seeing in this limited series at all.

Christopher Nolan Netflix

There are a couple of things about Christopher Nolan, the man, that we know with complete certainty that he loves: wearing suits, and the idea of shooting movies on celluloid. After all, he’s part of the group of directors who essentially strong-armed the studios into continuing to purchase actual film so these people can continue using it for their productions. But here’s something the filmmaker doesn’t like: the way Netflix handles their original films.

In a new interview, the director candidly speaks about why he wouldn’t work with Netflix and dings their “mindless policy” of not supporting theatrical distribution. Read the Christopher Nolan Netflix comments below.

Narcos season 3 teaser

Narcos has been sitting in my Netflix queue since the day season 1 premiered, but I’ve never been inspired to watch it because I’ve seen the story of Colombian drug kingpin Pablo Escobar on screen so many times before. The excellent documentary Cocaine Cowboys, ESPN’s 30 for 30 entry The Two Escobars, heck, even one of Entourage‘s fake movies covered it. But the upcoming third season is moving beyond the well-trod Escobar saga and into new territory, and a new Narcos season 3 teaser (and a handful of new photos) show us exactly what Pedro Pascal‘s Javier Peña and the rest of the DEA are up against – plus, we can now mark our calendars for the season 3 premiere date.
