It’s no surprise that Netflix has managed to garner everyone’s attention and skyrocket expectations for their original content due to releasing high quality original content such as Hemlock Grove, Sense8, Jessica Jones and the list goes on. Currently everyone seems to be ranting and raving about the recently added Making a Murderer and Marvel’s Jessica Jones – both shows are equally binge-worthy, But binging a show means you’ll soon be done with it. When that happens, what will you watch next? Worry not folks for Netflix is pulling out all the stops; this year, Netflix will be rolling out 7 original series for your viewing pleasure.

Marvel’s Luke Cage
Did you love Jessica Jones? Or more specifically, did you absolutely love Luke Cage? Then this is the series for you. Netflix continues to branch out the Marvel Universe by adding Luke Cage to its series of Marvel Shows – Daredevil and Jessica Jones being the other two. Mike Colter (Luke Cage) explains that the upcoming series will “have soul, it's going to have intensity, it's going to have dark parts to it. I think what's going to make it unique is also the musicality of it."
Set to premiere January 23rd, this four-part documentary ushers the return of Comedian Chelsea Handler. Who doesn’t love Chelsea Handler?
Speaking of comedians, the lovely and hilarious Will Arnett will also be returning to our screens this year with Flaked. Flaked will be co-executively produced by Mitch Hurwitz, the creator of Arrested Development. Arnett is set to play Chip, “a celebrated long-time resident of the insular world of Venice, California, who falls for the object of his best friend's fascination."
2016 seems to be Netflix’s year of venturing into the genre of comedies. Lady Dynamite, helmed by Maria Bamford, is a mockumentary of Bamford’s life, telling the tale of a woman who “loses – and then finds – her shit.” Sarah Silverman and Tig Notaro are set to guest star.
The Get Down
Last but not least on Netflix’s roster is Baz Luhrmann’s The Get Down which focuses on the musical New York in the 70s – a time where we were “on the edge of the punk, rap, and disco movements.”
