Have you been missing Kimmy Schmidt and her friends? Have no fear, because Netflix is here to tell you that UNBREAKABLE KIMMY SCHMIDT will return for its third season on May 19.

In an announcement video for the new season we see the incomparable Titus Andromedon (Titus Burgess) channeling Beyoncé in LEMONADE.

At the end of last season, Kimmy had reconnected with her mother (played by Lisa Kudrow) and it was revealed that she was actually married to the Reverend (played by Jon Hamm). Titus, meanwhile, had stopped in Titusville while trying to come to terms with his career and his relationship.

Netflix Cheating: Your Significant Other Is Probably Stepping Out On Your Joint Viewing

netflix

Bad news ahead of Valentine’s Day this week: your significant other is probably Netflix cheating on you.

According to a new Netflix study, nearly half (46%) of streaming couples around the world have “cheated” on their significant other. Netflix cheating (defined as watching a joint TV show ahead of your significant other) was first uncovered in a U.S. study in 2013. Four years later, cheating has increased three timesand has become a common behaviour around the world. This behaviour only continues to grow with 60% of consumers saying they’d cheat more if they knew they’d get away with it. And once you cheat, you can’t stop: 81% of cheaters are repeat offenders and 44% have cheated 3+ times.

Here’s what we know about this infidelity:

-Cheating happens all over the world…though it varies a bit by country. Turns out Canadians are a little less polite than you may think with over a third (37%) of couples streaming behind each other’s backs. The most cheaters are in Brazil and Mexico where 57% and 58% of streaming couples have cheated, respectively. The most loyal viewers are in Netherlands (73% have not cheated), Germany (65%) and Poland (60%).

-While no show is off limits to some (30%), the top 10 cheating temptations in Canada are The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, Orange is the New Black, Grey’s Anatomy, Bates Motel, Stranger Things, Gilmore Girls, House of Cards, Narcos and The 100.

-Most don’t plan to cheat…it just happens: 76% of cheating is unplanned in Canada. The trigger for the growing trend in cheating? Two-thirds (66%) of cheaters globally said that “the shows are just so good we can’t stop bingeing.”

-Sleep with one eye open: 25% of global cheating happens when one partner falls asleep. But whether this is even cheating is hotly debated. Half say “sleep cheating” doesn’t count (53%), but the morality of “sleep cheating” varies across the globe. Chileans think it’s no big deal, Japan sees it as unforgivable and most Canadians (61%) say sleep cheating isn’t cheating at all.

-If you stray, don’t beat yourself up about it. Cheating has become more socially acceptable in Canada, with 57% saying it’s “not bad at all.” Unless of course, you’re the other half of the 7% of streaming couples who think watching ahead is worse than having an “actual” affair. Hong Kong is even less forgiving where 40% feel watching ahead of your partner is worse than infidelity.

Check out some fun additional statistics below about Netflix cheating and make sure to keep a close eye on your partner this Valentine’s Day in case they’re stepping out on you too!

Netflix Announces Premiere Dates for ANNE, DEAR WHITE PEOPLE, CASTING JONBENET & GRACE AND FRANKIE

netflix

There’s been a lot of news coming out of Netflix today, including a season 2 renewal for TRAVELERS, the premiere date for GIRLBOSS, renewals for LOVE and THE OA, and the season 5 premiere date for OITNB. Netflix has also announced premiere dates for three new shows (ANNE, DEAR WHITE PEOPLE, CASTING JONBENET) as well as the return date for a new season of GRACE AND FRANKIE.

First up is the season 3 premiere of GRACE AND FRANKIE, which will stream worldwide as of March 24.

CASTING JONBENET, a new documentary series, will debut on April 28. Over 15 months, the filmmakers traveled to the Ramseys’ Colorado hometown to elicit responses, reflections and even performances from the local community. “In doing so, Casting JonBenet examines how this crime and its resulting mythologies have shaped the attitudes and behavior of successive generations of parents and children.”

DEAR WHITE PEOPLE is “set against the backdrop of a predominantly white Ivy League university where racial tensions bubble just below the surface. The satirical series — which picks up where the acclaimed 2014 film by the same name left off – follows a group of Winchester University’s students of color as they navigate a diverse landscape of social injustice, cultural bias, political correctness (or lack thereof) and sometimes misguided activism in the millennial age.” The series will premiere on April 28.

ANNE will premiere on May 12 on Netflix. “ANNE is a coming-of-age story about an outsider who, against all odds and many challenges, fights for love and acceptance and her place in the world. Set in Prince Edward Island in the late 1890s, the series centers on Anne Shirley (Amybeth McNulty), a young orphaned girl who, after an abusive childhood spent in orphanages and the homes of strangers, is mistakenly sent to live with an aging sister and brother. Over time, 13-year-old Anne will transform the lives of Marilla (Geraldine James) and Matthew Cuthbert (R.H. Thomson) and eventually the entire small town in which they live with her unique spirit, fierce intellect and brilliant imagination.”

Netflix Announces GIRLBOSS Premiere Date and Releases Teaser

netflix

Netflix has announced that GIRLBOSS will premiere on Netflix on April 13. The first season will consist of 13-half hour episodes.

GIRLBOSS is inspired by the New York Times best-selling book #Girlboss by Sophia Amoruso, founder of the fashion brand Nasty Gal. “The series centers on Amoruso (Britt Robertson), who began selling vintage clothes on eBay and, by the age of 28, had built the multi-million dollar fashion empire, Nasty Gal.” GIRLBOSS is created and executive produced by Kay Cannon (Pitch Perfect 1& 2, 30 Rock), who also serves as showrunner.

The streaming service also released a teaser preview which you can view below.

Danny Rand has been away from his home for a long time when we meet him in Netflix’s newest Marvel series: IRON FIST.

According to the official synopsis for the show: “Billionaire Danny Rand (Finn Jones) returns to New York City after being missing for years, trying to reconnect with his past and his family legacy. He fights against the criminal element corrupting New York City with his kung-fu mastery and ability to summon the awesome power of the fiery Iron Fist.”

Rand is one of four main characters in Netflix’s THE DEFENDERS, which is set to unit Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist in an epic multi-hero showdown.

IRON FIST will begin streaming on Netflix on Friday, March 17.

STRANGER THINGS Season 2 Trailer Debuts During the Super Bowl

stranger things

Commercials have become as big a part of the Super Bowl as football itself and fans of STRANGER THINGS got their first real look at season 2 of last summer’s sleeper hit Netflix series.

At the end of season 1, young Will had been saved from the mysterious Upside Down world, although it seems he may have brought back one of the creatures that had imprisoned him in that dimension. In addition, Eleven had sacrificed herself to save Will, but her true fate was unknown. Had she been killed forever? Likely not, since breakout star Millie Bobby Brown showed up in a table read photo for the new season tweeted out by the show’s official Twitter account.

Our first look at season 2 (which can be seen below) starts with an old Eggo Waffles commercial before quickly transitioning to scenes from the new season of STRANGER THINGS.

We also know that Sean Astin will be joining the kast as Bob Newby, a former nerd who went to high school with Joyce Byers (Winona Ryder) and Sheriff Hopper (David Harbour) and now manages the Hawkins RadioShack. In addition, Paul Reiser will play Dr. Owens, a Department of Energy employee who is responsible for cleaning up the mess from last year.

STRANGER THINGS will return for its second season on Halloween on Netflix.

SANTA CLARITA DIET: Escaping The Normality of a Suburban Life…With Zombies

santa clarita

Joel and Sheila are your average couple when we first meet them in the premiere of Netflix’s newest original series, SANTA CLARITA DIET. These two realtors live with their teenage daughter Abby in the suburbs of L.A. and there’s nothing remarkable about them at all. In fact, they’re a bit boring and disconnected from each other….and Joel is a little too obsessed with the loose knob on his toaster oven. But things change when Sheila vomits up….well, almost everything inside of her, including an organ.

Suddenly she’s craving more sex with her husband, going out with her girlfriends and has boundless energy. Joel, on the other hand, is concerned about the fact that his wife now has no pulse and is very, very different from the woman she used to be. Now she’s snacking on their realtor-nemesis in the backyard and he’s trying to figure out how to keep her fed while also keeping their marriage together (and her new zombie state a secret).

SANTA CLARITA DIET is a twist on both zombie shows and the suburban comedy. Drew Barrymore is lighthearted as an average woman who is adjusting to her newfound undead status. Timothy Olyphant, meanwhile, drops the more serious acting chops he honed in DEADWOOD or JUSTIFIED and plays against type. He’s mostly a mild-mannered dad, but you’ll chuckle as he starts going slightly crazy from the unpredictability of his situation.

There’s also heart at the center of SANTA CLARITA DIET. While the gore is plentiful, the show is really about a family trying to stay together in the face of unusual circumstances.

SANTA CLARITA DIET is available to stream worldwide on Netflix as of Friday, February 3.
