We've barely had time to finish Orange Is The New Black, The Ranch, and Stranger Things, but that doesn't mean Netflix has any intention of slowing down the onslaught of original content. Starting with The Get Down on August 12, Netflix has a total of nine original programs scheduled for release throughout the rest of 2016. Here's a guide to help you figure out which ones to add to your list already.

1. The Get Down

  • Release Date: August 12
  • Genre: Musical, Drama
  • For Fans Of: The Empire, Glee

In the crime-wracked, poverty-stricken New York City of the '70s, a handful of kids from the South Bronx manage to pioneer a new music movement that would change the world forever. From the creator of Moulin Rouge, Baz Luhrmann, The Get Down follows the story of the beginnings of hip-hop, punk and disco, and the kids that brought them to life.

2. Easy

Chicago, USA
Chicago, USA
  • Release Date: September 22, 2016
  • Genre: Anthology Drama
  • For Fans Of: Love, Drinking Buddies (film)

Unlike a typical drama that returns to the same setting and characters with every episode, each episode of an anthology drama is its own stand-alone story. From creator Joe Swanberg, this 8-episode mini-series looks closely at the lives of a diverse range of characters, all based in Chicago. The variations in the characters and their approaches to love, sex, technology and culture act as a reflection on Chicago itself. Orlando Bloom and Malin Akerman will both be featured, but it's unclear just how big their roles will be.

3. Marvel's Luke Cage

  • Release Date: September 30
  • Genre: Action, Superhero
  • For Fans Of: Jessica Jones, Daredevil

The team of Netflix and Marvel has proved itself a force to be reckoned with. Joining Daredevil and Jessica Jones this September will be Luke Cage, in his own solo show in preparation for the joint series The Defenders. There's no confirmation yet that Krysten Ritter will be making an appearance in this crossover series, but since she and Cage are happily married in the comics, and he played a significant role in her own series, chances are high.

4. Hater's Back Off

  • Release Date: October 14, 2016
  • Genre: Comedy
  • For Fans Of: YouTube?

YouTuber Colleen Ballinger created the totally out there and way over the top persona of Miranda Sings, a spoof on all the YouTubers that, well, think they're the best thing since Snapchat. Netflix found her so funny that they picked her up for her very own original series, a sitcom about Miranda's off-center family life.

5. The Crown

  • Release Date: November 4, 2016
  • Genre: Historical Drama
  • For Fans Of: Downton Abbey

After the runaway success of Downton Abbey, it's become abundantly clear that American audiences just can't help themselves when it comes to British period drama. In response to this interest, Netflix has sunk a stifling $132 million into a series about the reigning monarch of the UK, Queen Elizabeth II. Telling the story of her long life, starting with her wedding in 1947 and continuing all the way to the present day, The Crown will be made up of six seasons of 10 episodes each. The first season will center around her ascension to the throne during Winston Churchill's time as prime minister.

6. Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life

  • Release Date: November 25, 2016
  • Genre: Drama, Comedy
  • For Fans Of: Gilmore Girls, Veronica Mars, Ugly Betty, One Tree Hill

Oy with the poodles already! In case you hadn't heart, the long-awaited Gilmore Girls revival FINALLY has its release date, and it's a Thanksgiving miracle. On November 25, we'll be able to return to Stars Hollow with the greatest, coolest, fast-talkingest mother-daughter duo of all time. In preparation for the big day, Netflix has made every season of Gilmore Girls available to stream all over the world, so you've got plenty of time to start brushing up on your Gilmore-isms.

7. Trollhunters

  • Release Date: December 2016
  • Genre: Family, Animation
  • For Fans Of: Puss in Boots, Rise of the Guardians

Based on the book by Guillermo del Toro, this children's TV series was one of the last projects to ever feature the late Anton Yelchin. Yelchin voiced the main character, Jim, an ordinary boy who discovers an extraordinary war between good and evil trolls lurking beneath his suburban town. While news of the project was only made public shortly before Yelchin's passing, del Toro revealed that they had actually been working together for a year and that Yelchin had completed a large portion — but not all — of the voice-overs. It hasn't been confirmed whether or not the roll of Jim will be recast before the series's release.

Trollhunters is being made in conjunction with DreamWorks Animation, and del Toro described their unique vision for the show:

“We tried to go for lighting that is not common in TV animation, dramatic, very dark, very moody, with a lot of cinematic lighting. In the series, we couldn’t texture and grain like a feature but I can tried to tell the story in a way that is beautiful.”

8. Frontier

  • Release Date: late 2016
  • Genre: Historical Drama, Action/Adventure
  • For Fans Of: Game of Thrones, Vikings

Netflix is teaming up with Discovery to bring you a glimpse into the rough, high-stakes New World of fur trappers in 18th Century North America. Starring Jason Momoa as the main character, Declan Harp, the hour-long, six episode mini-series will be filled with enough blood, guts and gore to make Khal Drogo proud. Alun Armstrong (Braveheart), Landon Liboiron (Hemlock Grove) and Zoe Boyle (Downton Abbey).

9. The OA

  • Release Date: late 2016
  • Genre: Drama, Mystery
  • For Fans Of: Wayward Pines, Babylon

The creative team of Zal Batmanglij and Brit Marling have garnered a reputation for excellence on the indie film scene, and now — thanks to Netflix — they'll be making their first foray into TV. The OA is a drama series about a blind woman named Prairie Johnson (Marling) who vanishes for seven years, and then returns with her sight mysteriously restored. Scott Wilson will also star in the series as Prairie's adoptive father, Abel Johnson.

10. A Series Of Unfortunate Events

  • Release Date: late 2016
  • Genre: Comedy, Drama
  • For Fans Of: Stranger Things

Netflix first announced its plan to adapt Lemony Snicket's woefully wonderful YA books into a series over a year ago. Starring Neil Patrick Harris as Count Olaf himself, Netflix's ASOUE is rumored to be taking a darker tone than the 2004 film or even the books themselves — which makes perfect sense, given that the millennials that first devoured the books back in the '00s are older now.
