Netflix's Vice President of Original Content, Cindy Holland says scheduling was a huge issue on the show's first season.
Netflix and Marvel have done an incredible job of entertaining audiences with their collaborative original series. Comic book characters such as Luke Cage and Iron Fist have successfully made their way to the streaming platform, alongside the likes of Daredevil and Jessica Jones.
Cindy Holland explains why there's not yet been a second season of 'The Defenders'
All four of these characters came together in 2017's collaborative series, 'The Defenders'. Forced to join together in order to take down one of the most dangerous threats to the world, it was a brilliant limited series, and one fans hoped would return in the near future.
'Lost In Space' hasn't been renewed for a second season, but the co-creators have plenty of ideas if it does get the green light.
The reviews are in for Netflix's remake of classic 60s series 'Lost In Space', and it would seem the majority of those who have sat down to binge the debut season of the new show are enjoying what co-creators Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless have offered up. So where does the series go from here? No official order has yet been given for a second season, but we wouldn't be surprised to hear in the near future that it'll be returning - especially after that shock season 1 ending!

Even the series' co-creators are in the same boat.

The video is designed to discourage those with suicide issues from watching the show alone.
'13 Reasons Why' may have been an extremely popular drama, but it certainly wasn't without its controversies. Thus, Netflix commissioned a study to explore how the show has affected viewers as a majority, and they've added a suicide warning video rather than a standard disclaimer ahead of season two.

The star plays Betty Cooper in The CW's successful Archie Comics adaptation series.
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.
Lili Reinhart has continuously impressed in her role of Betty Cooper in 'Riverdale'
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 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.

The pair are joining as part of a cast shake-up following the production hiatus after Kevin Spacey was fired last year.
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.

A time-loop story where romance is not guaranteed.
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.
