6 New Netflix Shows You Need To Get Excited About

dare 2.jpg

Let’s not pretend you didn’t spend the whole of last weekend eating Garibaldi biscuit crumbs off your chest while watching Kevin Spacey run America. So, with that in mind, it probably means you’ve left yourselves with nothing to watch, you daft sods.

But the world doesn’t have to end with Frank Underwood, and nor does your TV slobbing.

We were slightly panicking about what to watch next as well, so we took a trawl through Netflix’s upcoming shows and have picked out the very best.

You won’t have to leave your sofa or re-join society any time soon. 


The Returned - March 10th

It was only a matter of time before the extraordinary French series of the same name got remade without those pesky subtitles and the new US version looks to have made the wise choice of sticking very closely to the original. The series follows a small town as they try to come to terms with the troubling development of their friends and family returning from the dead. 


Bloodline – March 20th

From the creators of Damages comes the tale of a well-respected family in Florida and the secrets that come to the surface when the black sheep (gotta love a black sheep) of the family comes back home. The series boasts an incredible cast with Ben Mendelsohn (Starred Up) as the black sheep and Kyle Chander (Wolf of Wall Street) as his younger brother. The show also stars Linda Cardellini (Mad Men), Sam Shepard (The Right Stuff) and Hollywood star Chloe Sevigny. It’s going to be bloody brilliant. 


Daredevil – April 10th

They may have declared independence from us in 1776 but in 2015 America just can’t get enough of the English. In the hotly anticipated Daredevil TV remake, Charlie Cox, from Boardwalk Empire (and East Sussex) brings yet another American cultural icon into English hands. If the trailer’s anything to go by, the new series looks set to be a lot darker, and lot less unutterably terrible, than the Ben Affleck debacle. The red coats/tight body suits are coming.


Martin Sheen

Grace and Frankie - May 8th 

A good place to start is to say that this series was created by Marta Kauffman, who’s had some success before with a show called Friends. Her new show follows lifelong rivals, Grace and Frankie, who are forced together after their husbands announce they are in love with each other and plan to get married. The enticing premise is made even better by the fact that Jane Fonda and Martin Sheen are in it. Could we be anymore excited?


Tuppence Middleton

Sense8 - June 5th

There have been some strange rumours about the Wachowskis’ newest project, like they’ve filmed live births for it, and, knowing them, anything is possible. Sense8 is about eight (duh) strangers from all corners of the globe who are flung together after a tragedy. But, because it’s from the minds behind The Matrix, it’s not quite as simple as that and strange things start happening that could have consequences for the future of mankind. Also, it's got our very own Tuppence Middleton in it, who the Wachowskis' worked with in Jupiter Ascending. We get the sense that his might be quite good.


Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp - July 17th

You may not have seen Wet Hot American Summer when it came out in 2001 but it was a funny little film, parodying the typical coming of age American summer movie. And, luckily, it had pretty much every actor you have ever seen in any comedy in it, like Paul Rudd, Bradley Cooper, Amy Poehler, David Hyde Pearce and Elizabeth Banks to name but a few. The really good news is that they’ve managed to persuade all, yes ALL, of the original cast to return for the series. It’s going to be a very good summer.
