With a new year comes new, exciting, and unique TV shows. Netflix has increased the amount of original programming in recent years, and the company aims to consist of 50% original content next year. With all these new shows, we’re sure to see a slew of diverse and noteworthy shows and movies.
The Ballad of Buster Scruggs
The Coen Brothers are coming to Netflix with this western anthology starring James Franco, Zoe Kazan, and of course Tim Blake Nelson. While information about the show is sparse, Scruggs will follow the exploits of a singing cowboy, and will be divided into six different stories about the Old West, each with separate characters and storyline.
Troy: Fall of a City
Netflix has teamed up with BBC for this limited series set in the UK. With big names and intriguing newcomers hitting the set, we’re curious to see what happens with new take on an old classic. The last big budget production of this story hit big in 2004 starring Brad Pitt, so we’re excited to see where the pairing of Netflix and BBC takes us.
This new show could be fun for adults and kids alike in this popular ‘90s cartoon reboot featuring a globetrotting lady and her sticky fingers. The show will feature Gina Rodriguez from the hit show Jane the Virgin, and Strangers Things Finn Wolfhard as Player in this upcoming animated series. Netflix has called for 20 half-hour episodes, and while the series will most likely appear late next year, there is a chance it could be pushed to 2019.
In this new series set 700 years in the future, the human mind is digitized and downloaded from body to body. With big name stars including Joel Kinnaman, Kristin Lehman, James Purefoy, and Adam Busch, among others, and a director such as Miguel Sapochnik (who directed epic Game of Thrones episodes) directing the pilot, this show is sure to be one to stay on your list. With Kinnaman’s character said to be a former space warrior, imprisoned and downloaded into the future he was trying to prevent, you can imagine how amazing the rest of the series will be.
