Netflix

When 'Riverdale' was first announced to be coming to The CW, nobody really knew what to expect. Could a series based on the characters and storylines woven throughout Archie Comics really be as tonally dark and gritty as was suggested by the teasers? Turns out it could, as the show surpassed all expectations and became a major hit with audiences.

Now in its second season, 'Riverdale' continues to impress, and when a completely new series based on the narrative in the comic series 'The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina' was announced, many thought it would provide the perfect opportunity for the two worlds to collide. They were of course from the same comic book universe, so why not?

Netflix

Netflix continues to cement itself as THE place to go to for good television, landing a huge deal with showrunner Ryan Murphy that will see the series creator bring new shows to the streaming platform for at least the next five years.

Greg Kinnear Diane Lane Netflix

Netflix has revealed some of the major cast changes to its flagship original series ‘House of Cards’ ahead of its sixth season, with actors Greg Kinnear and Diane Lane joining the political drama.

Kinnear and Lane, both former Oscar nominees, are to join the cast ahead of production on the sixth and final season resuming production on Wednesday (January 31st). This follows a months-long hiatus on ‘House of Cards’ after its star and executive producer, Kevin Spacey, was fired by Netflix in the midst of mounting allegations of serious sexual misconduct against him.

The two new stars are reportedly to play siblings on the show, but any more details about the casting have been kept firmly under wraps by Netflix. During the shutdown, the script for the new series was re-worked by producers to revolve around Robin Wright’s character of Claire Underwood.

Netflix Comedy 'When We First Met' Takes One Guy From Friend-Zone To End-Zone


Netflix Adam DeVine Alexandra Daddario

If you could relive a night over and over until you got the most perfect result regardless of the future consequences, would you go through with it? In 'When We First Met', it's certainly the ideal solution for one guy who's desperate to turn back the clocks and so his best friend that he's the man of her dreams.

You can't get away from the obvious fact that it's so similar to 'Groundhog Day', but rather than this being a lesson in being a good person and doing the right thing, 'When We First Met' is all about how things happen for a reason, and how changing the past may seem desirable, but you can never predict the future.
