It was Netflix’s turn at the Television Critics Association press tour today with the streaming giant setting several dates and teasing shows coming for the rest of the year.
First up, the first season of its much anticipated “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” comic adaptation will debut on October 26th. The series re-imagines the origin and adventures of Sabrina the Teenage Witch as a dark coming-of-age story that traffics in horror and the occult. Kiernan Shipka, Lucy Davis, Miranda Otto, Chance Perdomo, Michelle Gomez, Jaz Sinclair and Richard Coyle star.
They have also released the first trailer for the second season of their crime drama “Ozark” starring Jason Bateman and Laura Linney as a couple who are in over their heads with a drug cartel. The new season kicks off August 31st.
Next comes a November 16th premiere date for Chuck Lorre’s forthcoming ten-episode single-camera comedy “The Kominsky Method” starring Michael Douglas, Alan Arkin, and Nancy Travis. Douglas plays an actor who years ago had a brief fling with success and is now a revered Hollywood acting coach.
The streamer did NOT announce a date for the sixth and final season of “House of Cards,” though a bow around the mid-term elections in November is likely.
The first trailer has arrived for “Paradise PD,” the new adult animated comedy series from the team behind “Brickleberry”. The story centers on a dysfunctional police department in a backwoods, Southern U.S. small town. The ten-episode series launches in full on August 31st.
Finally, the company has acquired Octavia Spencer and LeBron James’ proposed untitled limited series about entrepreneur and black hair care pioneer Madam C.J. Walker who became America’s first black, self-made female millionaire. Spencer will star in the eight-episode series based on A’Lelia Bundles’ novel “On Our Own Ground” and Walker’s great-great-granddaughter will serve as a consultant while Kasi Lemmons (“Black Nativity”) will direct the pilot.
