Adding a whopping 5.7 million subscribers in 2015, Netflix is expanding by the minute. It's growing audience is transforming the multinational provider into a media streamer so colossal that it may leave cable TV behind in it's shadow to eat its dust.
The subscription-based service is widely known for it's original content. Especially, it's content produced in its partnership with Marvel Studios. Launching shows such as Daredevil and Jessica Jones. The latter is one of the shows that has just been renewed for its sophomore season.
If you called the number, you'll actually directed to a brusque (in the spirit of Jessica) voicemail message for the fictional Alias Investigations where you can leave your own message for her to probably ignore later. Who doesn't love Marvel's marketing? Whoever's in charge of Marvel's marketing, give them a raise now.
A release date has yet to be given for the next season, but the filming schedules of Marvel's Netflix series then the soonest possible release estimated would be 2017 or after the heroes converge in 'The Defenders' and everyone has had their time in the limelight of their own respected series.
Moving forward to the second show to receive another order of episodes, this one being in a partially unrelated genre. 'The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt' is a lovable comedy hit that has made its home at Netflix after being sold by NBC and writer, Tina Fey. Scoring two seasons before production even started, the show has now received a third season order before its sophomore season has even aired let alone ending in post-production.
I happen to be a fan of both shows and I am ecstatic to hear that Netflix shares a common faith in the potential of both series. There's nothing that excites me more than hearing that characters I love will soon return to my small screen and expand their worlds within 13 episodes.
