Get caught up on everything on the way from the streaming giant!
The masterminds over at Netflix have some amazing things on the way. So much, in fact, it’s hard to keep track of it all. But you’re in luck! We’ve rounded up all the Netflix news worth knowing. Ricky Gervais has an exciting new project! There’s new trailers for Bloodline, The Crown and Marco Polo!
Let’s get started…
The Rayburns are back! This week, the trailer for season two of the dark, family drama was released teasing some twists and turns in the show’s second outing.
Spoilers ahead, for those who haven’t watched season one!
The trailer finds John Rayburn (Kyle Chandler) still attempting to cover up the murder of Danny (Ben Mendelsohn), and although his older brother is dead, he clearly has a big presence in the second season…so does his son Nolan (Owen Teague).
Were you a fan of the historical drama Marco Polo? If so, get ready! A promo has been released to promote the new season and it’s release date: July 1, 2016.
The promo is merely a teaser, offering epic music, the release date, and the sounds of battle with the caption: “A season 800 years in the making.” More than enough to wet the appetite of diehard fans.

Ricky Gervais has a new film on the way that was originally set to be released by a major Hollywood studio, however the actor decided to work with Netflix instead because they gave him the freedom to see his cinematic and comedic aspirations realized.
“I think Netflix will be the return of the auteur because you make the movie you wanted,” Gervais said at a recent press event in Paris.
The film, Special Correspondents, is about a pair of reporters who pretend to report on a war in Ecuador from the safety of New York, but when the two reportedly go missing, they must actually go to Ecuador in order to not get in trouble.
This film is just latest in a number of projects that Netflix has acquired because of their willingness to allow filmmakers and show-runners to take risks.
“I think it’s a disservice to the public to try and second-guess them and try to please them. If you try to please everyone you please no-one,” Gervais said of movie-goers. “But if you’re your own worst critic then they’ll be grateful that you did it your way.”
Last but certainly is the newest trailer for The Crown, a historical drama centered on a very young Queen Elizabeth II (Claire Foy) and the turmoil that followed WWII in Britain.
The newest trailer, titled “Behind Closed Doors,” ushers the viewer into a room populated by the Queen’s inner circle, including Winston Churchill (played by John Lithgow). As the viewer approaches, everyone stops and stares. It is as uncomfortable as it is compelling. The period piece arrives November 4, 2016.
