New movies and TV series for Netflix

Netflix released its latest financial report on 18 April, highlighting that it expanded the Netflix service to 130 new countries in January, and finished the reporting period with over 81 million subscribers.

The growth was supported by the strength of Netflix’s original content.

“We are maintaining a fast pace of content launches in Q2, starting with the recently-released sitcom The Ranch, starring Ashton Kutcher,” said Netflix.

Netflix will launch seven new seasons of original series this quarter, including Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Bloodline, Grace and Frankie, and Orange is the New Black.

Netflix will also premiere the original films The Do­-Over, Adam Sandler’s second film for Netflix, Special Correspondents featuring Ricky Gervais and Eric Bana, The Fundamentals of Caring, starring Paul Rudd, and Brahman Naman from Q.

Netflix will also launch its first talk show in the coming weeks – Chelsea, starring Chelsea Handler.

Netflix said it is investing about 5% of its cash content budget in original films. “As we learn, we may spend beyond that,” it said.

Upcoming original films for 2016 include War Machine and Mascots.

Netflix’s 2017 line-up includes Bong Joon Ho’s Okja, and Bright, starring Will Smith.
