[quote]Netflix and its streaming brethren are beginning to pass comparable TV channels by important measures, and as a result have the potential to be the biggest drivers of merch sales.

So now, in order to understand and predict demand fluctuations for merchandise, retailers need to be aware of the programming that’s hitting key streaming distribution channels such as YouTube, Netflix, and Hulu for broad selections, and Crunchyroll and FUNimation for anime.[/quote]

Hemlock Grove Season 2 Date Announcement Teaser

[quote]Netflix’s supernatural thriller “Hemlock Grove” was not its most buzzed-out original series, but audience reception evidently was strong enough that the show is coming back to the service for a second run in July.

All 10 episodes of the sophomore season of “Hemlock Grove,” from exec producer Eli Roth, will premiere on Friday, July 11 at 12:01 a.m. Pacific in all territories where Netflix is available. Series is based on Brian McGreevy’s novel of the same name and is produced by Gaumont International Television.

“Hemlock Grove” did not receive the level of critical acclaim or attention of Netflix’s “House of Cards” or “Orange Is the New Black.” Netflix does not release info on viewership, but execs have noted previously that originals catering to more niche auds — and aren’t confined to traditional TV formats — are important for attracting and retaining members.

“Hemlock Grove,” about a series of strange events in a small Pennsylvania town, stars Famke Janssen (“X-Men”), Bill Skarsgård (“Simon & The Oaks”), Landon Liboiron (“Terra Nova”) and Dougray Scott (“Mission Impossible II”).

Season two picks up with the residents of Hemlock Grove coming to grips with the shocking massacre inflicted by one of its deadliest creatures.

Said Roth, “Netflix has been an incredible partner, and whenever we wanted to take the story in a dangerous direction, they encouraged us to go even further — into a scarier, darker, and sexier place. We guarantee you won’t see anything like this anywhere else on television.”

Series was the first foray into TV by biscreen horror-meister Roth (“Hostel,” “Cabin Fever”). It was developed by Brian McGreevy and Lee Shipman and is executive produced by Roth, Charles Eglee, McGreevy and Lee Shipman, Eric Newman and Michael Connolly.

“Hemlock Grove” season one earned two 2013 Emmy Awards nominations, for original main title theme music and special visual effects.[/quote]


[size=6]Final Season of The Killing Arrives August 1 on Netflix[/size]

[quote]The fourth and final season of The Killing will be available exclusively on Netflix starting August 1. To prove it, a short teaser video has arrived, but we’ll have to wait to get our first look at actual footage.

The first three seasons of The Killing aired on AMC, but the show struggled to find a large enough audience on the channel to stay alive. Thankfully, it was popular enough on Netflix that the streaming service decided to pick it up and produce the new season, similar to what it did with Arrested Development. This isn’t the first time The Killing has come back from the dead. It was originally cancelled after its second season, before AMC revived it for a third.

Fans should keep their fingers crossed that The Killing does the impossible and comes back from the dead once again. If the fourth season is popular enough, it wouldn’t be too surprising if Netflix orders more.[/quote]

[size=6]Orange is the New Black Gets Third Season[/size]

[quote]Netflix subscribers won’t be leaving prison anytime soon.

Orange is the New Black has been renewed for a third season, which will presumably hit the streaming service next year. The announcement was made by actress Laura Prepon by posting a photo on Instagram, and the news has since been confirmed by Netflix. If you’re looking for ideas of what to expect from the third season, possible titles include (according to Prepon’s post)
[hide] Back to the Big House, The Great Hate Fuck, and Back to the Rape Well.[/hide] Seems charming.

The second season of Orange is the New Black will debut on June 6, which means Netflix decided to renew it before finding out how popular the new season will be. This means they must be pretty confident about the show’s longevity.

I just completely missed this before but it looks like Derek has been renewed for a second season.

[quote]Netflix has released a trailer for the second season of Derek, the warmhearted new series from Ricky Gervais.

The show takes place inside a British retirement home, focusing on the day-to-day lives of the quirky caretakers who work there. Like The Office and other shows from Ricky Gervais, Derek is a done in a mockumentary style, but his patented brand of mean-spirited humour is absent.

All six episodes of Derek Season 2 will be available to stream on Netflix starting May 30.

[size=6]“DreamWorks Dragons” TV Series Moving to Netflix[/size]

[quote]DreamWorks Dragons, based on the 2010 film How to Train Your Dragon, will move to Netflix for its third season in 2015.

The half-hour series has aired on Cartoon Network for its first two seasons of 40 episodes, which bowed in August 2012. The second season wrapped in March and the show hasn’t been seen on the network since.

Unlike other DreamWorks movies turned into television series – The Penguins of Madagascar, Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness and Monsters vs. Aliens (all on Nickelodeon) – the network had little control and didn’t make the series in-house.

DreamWorks is now exclusively releasing series through Netflix. Turbo FAST premiered late last year and new Puss in Boots and King Julien series are in development.[/quote]

Well it was a possibility. At least I got to watch the first two seasons on CN when I could.

Exclusive fringe content isn’t going to get me back to Netflix.

They need to work on their content retention issues, lack of real content and low video quality first. :frowning:


[size=6]Netflix Sets Premiere Date for ‘BoJack Horseman[/size]

[quote]Netflix will bow “BoJack Horseman,” voiced by Will Arnett and Aaron Paul, on Aug. 22 with the release of all 12 episodes of the adult-themed animated comedy about a hard-drinking humanoid stallion.

The series, from Michael Eisner’s Tornante Co., revolves around former 1990′s sitcom star BoJack (Arnett) who deals with his personal crises with human sidekick Todd (Paul) and feline agent and ex-lover Princess Caroline (Amy Sedaris).

“BoJack Horseman” was created by Raphael Bob-Waksberg (“The Exquisite Corpse Project”) and is exec produced by Bob-Waksberg, Steven A. Cohen and Noel Bright, with Arnett and Paul also serving as exec producers. BoJack was designed by graphic artist Lisa Hanawalt and the series is animated by L.A.-based ShadowMachine.

The titular character was the “legendary star of the 1990s family-favorite sitcom ‘Horsin’ Around’” — which never existed. Cast includes Paul F. Tompkins (HBO’s “Mr. Show with Bob and David”) as the voice of golden retriever Mr. Peanutbutter, and Alison Brie (“Community,” “Mad Men”) as the dog’s human girlfriend.[/quote]
