All is right in the world of Netflix.
On Sunday, the streaming service announced the premiere dates for 11 original series including ”Orange is the New Black,” “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” and “Grace and Frankie.” Oh, how we’ve missed you.
Joining Netflix’s esteemed ranks are Ashton Kutcher’s “The Ranch,” Baz Luhrmann’s “The Get Down” and Winona Ryder’s “Stranger Things.”
Check out the premiere dates, trailers and descriptions of the new series below.
“Flaked” brings “Arrested Development” favorite Will Arnett back to Netflix. The eight-episode comedy follows Arnett’s character Chip, ”a celebrated long-time resident of the insular world of Venice, California, who falls for the object of his best friend’s fascination. Soon the tangled web of half-truths and semi-bullshit that underpins his all-important image and sobriety begins to unravel.”
“The Ranch” is staging a “That ’70s Show” reunion with Ashton Kutcher and Danny Masterson this spring. In the 10-episode multi-camera comedy, Kutcher stars as a failed former football player who returns home to Colorado to run a ranch with his brother, “Rooster” (Masterson). The series also stars Sam Elliott and Debra Winger.
“Lost & Found Music Studios” is a live-action series following the musical careers of young artists trying to break into the music industry. Each episode will track the ups and downs of a group of tweens and teens as they find their voice at a famous music studio. (Is this a reality show? Or like Netflix Idol? We’re confused, and have asked Netflix to clarify.)
“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” returns for a second season (Chica Hamburguesa is back!)
“Kong: King of the Apes” is an updated take on the classic King Kong story. The animated series picks up with the famous ape in 2050. According to the description, a villain with a pack of “gigantic robotic dinosaurs” at his or her disposal frames Kong, setting up an international manhunt for the world’s No. 1 fugitive. Kong gets some help from three human friends along the way.
“Marseille” is a political drama starring famed French actor Gérard Depardieu about the power struggle in the port city of Marseille, France. The synopsis reads: “As the municipal elections approach in Marseille, Robert Taro (Depardieu), the city’s Mayor for the last twenty years, prepares his last coup … Nothing has been left to chance, and his successor, Lucas Barrès, is already designated. But the latter’s all-consuming ambition and the secret interests of the city’s leaders, whether they come from its opulent villas or from the cities of the northern suburbs, impede the Mayor’s plans.”
“Grace and Frankie” is back for a second season with Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Martin Sheen and Sam Waterston.
“Word Party” is a vocabulary-building show for youngsters from The Jim Henson Company. Four state-of-the-art baby animal puppets will sing, dance and play, all in the name of education.
It’s time to return to Litchfield for “Orange is the New Black” Season 4.
“Stranger Things” is a supernatural drama about the disappearance of a young boy that captivates a small Indiana town. The eight-episode series promises “secret experiments, terrifying supernatural forces, and one very strange little girl” in the hunt for the missing child. Winona Ryder stars.
Baz Luhrmann brings his unique talents to Netflix with part one of ”The Get Down,” a “music-driven drama” that follows a group of ragtag teenagers in 1970s New York. The series is billed as a ”mythic saga of how New York at the brink of bankruptcy gave birth to hip-hop, punk and disco — told through the lives and music of the South Bronx kids who changed the city, and the world…forever.”
