Netflix Renews “Marco Polo,” Sets More Dates

Along with announcing a Friday April 10th release date for the first season of “Daredevil” this morning, Netflix used its TCA Winter Tour presentation to announce three more series release dates – all of them on Fridays.

They also dropped one key piece of news – their big-budget sweeping drama epic “Marco Polo” has been renewed for a ten-episode second season following last month’s release of the first. Despite mixed reviews that praised the production values but slammed the storytelling, the show is a valuable property for the SVOD giant – especially in international markets where historical action/drama series play far better.

Netflix confirmed that the Tina Fey-created half-hour single-camera comedy series “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” will premiere on March 6th, the dark Florida Keys-set family drama “Bloodline” on March 20th, and the Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin-led comedy series “Grace and Frankie” on May 8th.

“Daredevil” and the other three new series all have thirteen episodes each and all will be available from 12:01am US-PST on the days in question.
