Looking for something to binge-watch? Well, look no further. Lauren Graham just made a huge Gilmore Girls announcement.

All 153 episodes from the original series will be available worldwide to stream on Netflix starting July 1. That’s right. Subscribers from Japan, Germany, Italy, Saudi Arabia… pretty much anywhere the streaming service is available, so will the show.

Now, there’s no excuse to be caught up with the Stars Hollow crew before Netflix premieres its Gilmore Girls revival series, A Year In the Life, due later in 2016. Check out the video promo below touting Netflix’s widened distribution rights.

Things are about to get a little creepy over at Netflix.

The streaming service just dropped the trailer for their new supernatural series, Stranger Things. The drama marks Winona Ryder’s first leading role on a television series. Joining the 44-year-old actress are David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin and Matthew Modine.

Stranger Things Synopsis

A love letter to the supernatural classics of the 80’s, Stranger Things is the story of a young boy who vanishes into thin air. As friends, family and local police search for answers, they are drawn into an extraordinary mystery involving top-secret government experiments, terrifying supernatural forces and one very strange little girl.

Stranger Things will release all eight episodes on July 15. Check out the chilling trailer below. Goosebumps is all I have to say. I’m kinda digging the X-Files-like vibe.

Unless you grew up in the 80s, you’ve probably never heard of the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling aka G.L.O.W. Thanks to Orange Is The New Black producers Jenji Kohan and Tara Herrmann, millennials will now know the campy awesomeness that was the female answer to the male-dominated World Wrestling Federation.

While the original Reagan-era series featured wrestling matches, songs and sketches, the Netflix quasi-reboot will be a scripted affair. Deadline reports the upcoming comedy will be set “in Los Angeles and showcasing big hair and body slams, the series tells the fictionalized story of an out-of-work actress who finds one last attempt to live her dreams in the form of a weekly series about female wrestlers.” The streaming service has given a 10-episode order to the new series.

If you’ve never been exposed to the 80s cult classic, check out the opening intro below where each female wrestler raps. Some of the names are quite amusing including Jailbait, The Royal Hawaiian, Palestina, Amy The Farmer’s Daughter, Beastie and Colonel Ninotchka to name a few. I can’t wait to see the new version. Fingers crossed that there’s a rap component as well.

Another Major Player Leaves Sense8 Season 2

There’s something definitely in the water over on the set of Sense8. Another major player has left while filming Season 2.

Previously, Aml Ameen, who plays one of the original sensates, abruptly exited due to a conflict with co-creator Lana Wachowski. Reportedly, tension began with creative differences during a table read in Berlin and worsened during filming in India. Toby Onwumere stepped in to play Capheus aka “Van Damme”- a Kenyan man taking care of his AIDS-stricken mother.

Find out below, who’s the latest to jump ship.

“Who will fight, and who will fall?,” ominously teases the video description.

It’s a whole new world at Litchfield Prison. Season 4 of Orange Is The New Black picks up right where last season left off. An influx of new prisoners and new guards threatens to unbalance the status quo at the penitentiary. Plus, the fact it’s now become a for-profit prison has made things progressively worse for its female inmates.

OITNB returns to Netflix on June 17. Check out the trailer below. I’m beyond curious to learn exactly why a SWAT team is called in.

Justin Simien’s crowd-funded satirical film, Dear White People, made a splash at film festivals a couple years back. It especially did well at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival where it earned the US Dramatic Special Jury Award for Breakthrough Talent. Netflix is adapting the critically-acclaimed film for a new series. Simien will write and direct the pilot episode.

Dear White People Logline

“Set among a diverse group of students of color as they navigate a predominantly white Ivy League college where racial tensions are often swept under the rug, Dear White People is a send up of ‘post-racial’ America that also weaves a universal story about forging one’s own unique path.”

Ten 30-minute episodes have been ordered by the streaming service. It’s not clear if any of the original cast members (Tyler James Williams, Tessa Thompson and Dennis Haysbert) will return for the TV series.

I actually watched the film and quite enjoyed it. If you haven’t, check out the theatrical trailer below and be sure to add it to your list.

Even though there is some reported behind-the-scenes drama, it appears everything is copacetic again. At least, based on photos uploaded to Tumblr from co-creator Lana Wachowski.

“It was while shooting the Big Cluster Birthday Bash, we wished there was a way for our fans to experience… What we experience while making this show…,” Wachowski wrote.

After checking out the pics, I’m even more excited for Sense8 Season 2 to arrive. Sadly though, that’s not happening anytime soon.

According to actress Jamie Clayton, a Christmas special will drop this holiday season with the rest of the episodes available later. “Ep1 at Christmas. The rest, all at once in 2017,” she tweeted.

Netflix is notorious for not sharing ratings with regards to their original programming. It’s safe to assume though, The Ranch is doing well. The streaming service just renewed the comedy for a second season.

The Ranch reunites That ’70s Show co-stars Ashton Kutcher and Danny Masterson for the Colorado-set series. Kutcher plays a semi-professional football player who returns home to help his brother (Masterson) run their family ranch. Sam Elliott and Debra Winger also star.

The first 10 episodes are available to stream now. 10 additional episodes, dubbed Season 1B, will drop later this fall. Season 2 will consist of 20 episodes in total. Watch Kutcher and his co-stars announce the news below.
