According to the company’s head of content Ted Sarandos, who spoke at the UBS Media Conference in NYC Monday, Netflix is planning to nearly double the number of original shows it produces next year. What’s more, there will be 10 feature films, 12 documentaries, 10 stand-up specials and the addition of 30 children’s programs.
The shift will put Netflix right in line with the big dogs of TV, Showtime and HBO, when it comes to TV series per year, at least. Meanwhile, Netflix had its biggest year to date in 2015, reaching over 69 million subscribers worldwide by Q3 2015. The company’s original shows of 2015 included Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, BoJack Horseman, Master of None, and Sense8 to name a few of the service’s incredible offerings.
Hopefully, we will get more of the details about what Netflix is planning in 2016, but we currently know that they have Fuller House, Frontier, Stranger Things, and Luke Cage planned for 2016.
