Netflix Originals Release Dates: A Calendar Of All Original TV Shows And Movies

Netflix is producing a ton of original content these days and I've been finding it harder and harder to keep track of it all. Netflix will release 1,000 hours of original shows and movies in 2017, spending $6 billion to do so. That's almost double the amount of original programming they released 2016, which included an estimated 126 TV shows. You would have to spend 41 days binge-watching Netflix to see all of their expected 2017 original programming.

The following is a completely updated list of Netflix Originals release dates for all of the Netflix Original TV Shows and Netflix Original Movies. We have also included a list of the upcoming productions that don't have a scheduled release date yet.

Recent Updates:

  • 3/13: Netflix acquires Aaron Burns' horror film Madre, season two of A Series of Unfortunate Events has been confirmed.
  • 3/9: Netflix acquires Spike Lee documentary Rodney King, releases a trailer and dates Marlon Wayans' time-loop comedy Naked, a release date for Andrea Molaioli's Italian teen pregnancy Nick Hornsby adaptation Slam, Small Crimes dated.
  • 3/5: Dates for two new Dave Chappelle comedy specials, Netflix renews their sitcom One Day At A Time for a second season, announcement of a Korean period Zombie thriller series called Kingdom.
  • 3/2: Netflix announces new documentary Get Me Roger Stone about Donald Trump's advisor, to premiere at Tribeca and be released in Spring 2017.
  • 3/1: Dates and trailers for Mindhunter and GLOW, Additions of Troy: Fall of a City, Black Earth Rising and The Spy
  • Netflix Originals Release Dates

    Please Note: What follows is a listing of all the upcoming TV shows and movies that Netflix considers a Netflix original. The definition of a Netflix original can be rather vague. A television series like House of Cards is considered a Netflix Original, even though Media Rights Capital produced the series and sold the streaming rights to Netflix. Other shows like The OA and Stranger Things were produced in-house for the streaming service. Netflix acquires many features and documentaries at film festivals, like the recent 2017 Sundance Film Festival. While they were not produced directly by Netflix, the streaming company now owns the films outright.

    There are so many original series and movies planned by Netflix that we have to break this up into multiple pages. Right now, we have collected nearly 150 announced productions listed here. If they have a proper release date, they are organized chronologically. Otherwise, undated movies and TV shows are listed alphabetically by year. Here is an index to get to what you're looking for:

  • March 2017 Netflix Originals releases
  • April – December 2017 Netflix Originals releases
  • 2017 To Be Dated: A-E, F-L, L-Z
  • 2018-2019 Netflix Originals releases
  • Let's begin with the March 2017 Netflix Originals releases.
