    Jon Bernthal "at peace" with the prospect of The Punisher being axed

    The second season of The Punisher arrived on Netflix yesterday, which means that fans of the Marvel series are now waiting with bated breath for the announcement that the streaming service has swung the axe on the show, much like it did with Iron Fist, Luke Cage and Daredevil last year. Speaking to Variety, actor Jon Bernthal has acknowledged that things appear grim for his future as Frank Castle, although he feels he’ll be “at peace with it” if indeed we get word that the series has been cancelled.

    Netflix Expected to Spend as Much as $15 Billion on Content This Year

    As you’ve surely noticed by now, Netflix boasts an ever-expanding library of original movies and TV series. “Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened,” “Black Mirror: Bandersnatch,” and “Tidying Up with Marie Kondo” are just some of the conversation starters to premiere on the streaming giant in recent weeks, and they have something in common: They all cost money to acquire and/or produce. So much, in fact, that Netflix spent $12 billion on content in 2018 — and, according to Wall Street analysts (per Variety), could see that number rise as high as $15 billion this year.

    Netflix says more 'choose your own adventure' shows are on the way after the success of 'Black Mirror: Bandersnatch'

    The choose-your-own adventure format of "Black Mirror: Bandersnatch" was a novelty when Netflix debuted the movie last month. But it'll soon become a lot more common, if the streaming video giant has anything to say about it. "You should anticipate we'll do more of those [interactive shows] as we start to explore that format," Greg Peters, Netflix's chief product officer, said on a webcast Thursday following the company's fourth-quarter earnings report.

    'The First,' Starring Sean Penn, Canceled at Hulu

    Hulu's big-budget space drama The First has been permanently grounded. The streamer has opted to cancel the Sean Penn-led drama from creator Beau Willimon after one season. The drama, which marked Penn's first TV series regular role, launched in September to lackluster reviews. The Hollywood Reporter's chief TV critic Daniel Fienberg said in his review that the series — about a Mars expedition — had "its eyes on the heavens but its feet on the ground" as The First was more of an exploration of what it takes to get to space than time in orbit.

    ‘Sex Education’ Is a New Kind of Teen Comedy

    A show like Sex Education could never get made in America. A portrait of the sex lives of teenagers that’s both graphically detailed and earnestly empathetic? We’re far too puritanical, too shame-bound, too easily titillated for such a delicate balancing act to stand a chance. Thank goodness, then, that one side effect of the global reach of certain streaming services is to render the distinction between U.S. and international TV moot. Netflix’s latest drama is set in the United Kingdom, but its winning combination of emotion and candor is available to all.

    Black Mirror: Bandersnatch's cereal choice was originally way more significant

    Black Mirror’s interactive, mind-bending movie Bandersnatch has been causing all sorts of moral dilemmas for its viewers, who have to endlessly make choices on behalf of game designer Stefan (Fionn Whitehead) and take him on a dark and bloody path. It isn’t life or death all the way through, mind you. The first choice offered is simply whether you’d prefer Sugar Puffs or Frosties for breakfast – seemingly an easy decision to get viewers used to how Bandersnatch works.

    Syfy's 2018 'Twilight Zone' New Year's Marathon: The Complete Episode Lineup

    There is plenty of understandable excitement ahead of Jordan Peele's reboot of the classic sci-fi/fantasy anthology series The Twilight Zone, which is heading to CBS All Access in 2019. While previous attempts at reviving this iconic franchise have not been very successful, Peele's looks a lot more promising since it is clear through his work — particularly in a film like Get Out — that the writer/producer/director not only has a firm and respectful sense of the original series' twisty, often nightmarish scenarios and storytelling...

    The top 7 shows on Netflix and other streaming services this week

    Netflix announced on New Year's Day that "Stranger Things" will return on July 4, pushing up audience interest. Every week, Parrot Analytics provides Business Insider with a list of the seven most "in-demand" TV shows on streaming services. The data is based on "demand expressions," the globally standardized TV demand measurement unit from Parrot Analytics. Audience demand reflects the desire, engagement, and viewership weighted by importance, so a stream or download is a higher expression of demand than a "like" or comment on social media.

    ‘Game of Thrones’ Star Says Producers Are ‘Absolutely Paranoid’ About Spoilers

    “Game of Thrones” star Iain Glen has lifted the lid on the efforts of the show’s producers to avoid spoilers and leaks from the eagerly anticipated final season. “They’re absolutely paranoid now about anyone finding out anything about the series and spoiling it,” he said in a BBC radio interview to be broadcast Friday. “We weren’t allowed a written word on a page. Everything was accessed through iPads with different security you had to get through to access it, which caused a problem for the actors, I have to say.

    'Black Mirror' Creator Charlie Brooker Shares Season 5 Update

    Black Mirror creator and writer Charlie Brooker told The Hollywood Reporter that making Bandersnatch was like making four episodes of the sci-fi anthology series at once and that, as a result, the forthcoming fifth season has been pushed back. "We knew going into it that it would be difficult and challenging and more complicated than a normal film that we would do. Even then, we underestimated," Brooker elaborates to THR. "As the story expanded, I like to say that the story got longer and it got wider. So the whole thing started expanding a bit like an inflatable life raft in a small room."

Jackson’s Nick Fury, who gave Earth’s Mightiest Heroes that little push when they needed it most.

    Stephen Colbert has won another key battle in his late-night “war” with Jimmy Fallon: His CBS Late Show is now No. 1 this season among adult viewers under 50, the key demo group most attractive to advertisers. While Colbert has dominated in overall audience for close to two years now, Fallon’s Tonight Show has clung to an ever-shrinking lead in the demo. But per Nielsen data released Tuesday, Late Show is averaging 658,000 adult viewers under 50 in the TV season to date, just barely ahead of Tonight (656,000 or 657,000 viewers, depending on which network you ask).

It is also increasingly the guiding ethos of Hollywood development, where any familiar title, no matter how sacrosanct it might have once seemed, is ripe for a sequel, a prequel, a reboot or all of the above. This includes Game of Thrones itself, which is due to end next year but has a prequel in active development, and several other potential spinoffs waiting in the wings if that one works out OK.

In a relatively short amount of time, Netflix has transformed itself into a streaming powerhouse filled to the brim with a wide array of original content. These days, people are more likely to think of Netflix as a place to watch original TV shows like Stranger Things than as a place to enjoy hit movies.
