There's going to be a 'reintroduction' of the four leading characters.
There's no denying the hype surrounding upcoming Netflix and Marvel collaborative series, 'The Defenders'. Not only one of the most anticipated new shows of this month, but of the entire year, the series will bring Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist together for the first time, as they're forced to put aside their differences and work alongside one another for the greater good.

Going up against a worthy adversary in Alexandra, played by Sigourney Weaver, the crime fighters will be facing challenges like none they've ever tackled before. For now though, what many are looking forward to seeing is exactly how the heroes will interact with one another when they first meet.
The show didn't fare well with critics and won't be making a return.
It's official: the critically-panned Netflix original series 'Gypsy', led by Naomi Watts and coming from creator/writer Lisa Rubin alongside 'Fifty Shades of Grey' director Sam Taylor-Johnson - won't be making a return to the streaming service, after the company pulled the plug on the show following just a single season.

Released earlier this year, the series saw Watts in the role of New York City psychotherapist Jean Holloway; a woman who was so embedded within her clients' private lives that she would secretly infiltrate each of them, pulling the strings from the inside and using the alias Diane Hart during her time out of the office.

Now might be a good time to catch up on all those Disney and Pixar movies you have been meaning to watch on Netflix but haven't yet, because soon they'll all be taken down in favour of a new streaming service which is set to launch exclusively for Disney material.
It was only a matter of time, but Disney will now be unveiling their very own streaming company which means removing all their material currently available on Netflix. The news was announced through their most recent earnings report yesterday (August 8th 2017).

Created by Tsugami Ohba and Takeshi Obata, the story has won legions of fans across the world, with the manga being one of the few that was able to break into the mainstream and Western culture.

It's the latest animated adult comedy from 'The Simpsons' creator.
A new animated fantasy series from Matt Groening entitled 'Disenchantment' is set to hit Netflix in 2018 and it's chock full of the kind of adult humour you'd expect from the award-winning writer.

It's set in the fictional world of Dreamland, and - according to Netflix - features 'ogres, sprites, harpies, imps, trolls, walruses and lots of human fools'.
The critically-acclaimed Netflix original series is making its return this October.
Zooming back to 1984, to the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana, Netflix original sci-fi series 'Stranger Things' will be making its return as those who reside there do their best to recover from the shocking after-effects of the Demogorgon and the secrets uncovered at Hawkins Lab. Celebrating the series at this year's San Diego Comic Con, a first look trailer for the show's second season has been unveiled, which you can check out below:
There's a lot to digest in the trailer, with plenty of twists and turns promised as the show continues. With the clear signs that the pop culture references to some of the biggest franchises in the mid-80s will continue, there's even the intro to Michael Jackson's 'Thriller' working to prop up the teaser. The fan-service here is undeniably great.

The highly-anticipated new Netflix original series is right around the corner.
What do you get when you put together a blind ninja, an incredibly intelligent detective, a bulletproof former criminal and a Kung Fu expert who just so happens to be a billionaire? 'Marvel's The Defenders'; the show which brings outsider heroes Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist into a crime-fighting team like no other for the first time in television history. Launching globally next month on Netflix, the series is one of the most highly-anticipated of the year so far and, with a second full-length trailer dropping for the show at San Diego Comic Con, fans can now see all of the drama below:
The almost three-minute video is an action-packed one and, as the trailer progresses, we hear Sigourney Weaver's character Alexandra tease "the war in New York", whilst a montage of clips see the Defenders face off against all sorts of adversaries. Weaver's character is one that will prove challenging for the Marvel team to take down; as she mentions, she actually sees a lot of similarities in herself and those who oppose her. The only difference in fact is that Alexandra is merely bothered with self-preservation, while the Defenders take into account the lives of those living in New York.
