Netflix Announces 2016 Premiere Dates for Nearly All Original Programming

Netflix has announced 2016 premiere dates for nearly all of its original programming. And there’s a LOT of it, especially considering Netflix’s open declaration that they’ll be bumping up their original programming to 600 hours this year to accommodate the fact that they’ve now reached 75 million subscribers worldwide.

So while we’ll be seeing a lot of familiar faces returning in 2016, we’ll be getting just as much new programming, with people like Chelsea Handler and Baz Luhrmann making their Netflix original debuts. It’s looking like a great lineup for the year, with a wide array of comedies and dramas to fill up the schedule, along with brand new standup specials from popular comics like Hannibal Buress and Patton Oswalt. Overall, I’m pretty damn excited for what’s ahead, between Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and the Marvel shows alone. (Seriously, I need more Daredevil in my life) I’m also fairly obsessed with House of Cards, so I’m eager to have that show back as well. Granted, we don’t know for sure when Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Jessica Jones Season 2 or The Defenders are premiering, or if we’ll even see any of those shows in 2016. But Netflix has more than enough original programming to get by without it. Besides, I’d rather they not rush these Marvel properties.

But when will your favorites return? Check out the full 2016 premiere schedule for Netflix original programming below:
