Netflix To Double Its Original Series In 2016

Netflix has had its biggest year to date in 2015 with around sixteen original scripted comedy or drama series either launching or returning for new seasons. That means an average of every three weeks we’ve been getting launches.

Speaking at the UBS Media Conference this week (via The Verge), Netflix CCO Ted Sarandos says the company plans to effectively double its output for next year – that number of new TV seasons jumping from 16 to 31 – and that doesn’t count the 10 films, 10 comedy specials, 12 documentaries, or 30 kids shows scheduled for the service next year.

Some will be returnees including “Daredevil,” “House of Cards,” “Orange Is the New Black,” “Bloodline,” “Sense8,” “BoJack Horseman” and “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” along with several other already announced high profile series making the debut including “Luke Cage,” “Fuller House,” “Love,” “The Get Down,” “The Crown,” “Lady Dynamite,” “Stranger Things,” and “The OA”.
