5 Netflix Shows That Have New Episodes Coming Soon
Netflix users have a lot to look forward to in the coming months. In addition to new original shows still set to premiere this year, the streaming service is also bringing back several past favorites this fall. From the second season of Narcos to the return of Fuller House, here are five Netflix shows that have new episodes coming soon.
1. Narcos, September 2
Netflix’s acclaimed drama, chronicling the rise of drug kingpin Pablo Escobar, will return for a 10-episode second season this fall. Wagner Moura returns as the drug lord, while Boyd Holbrook and Pedro Pascal will reprise roles as DEA agents Steve Murphy and Javier Peña. As has been confirmed by Moura and the show’s producers, this season of Narcos will follow Escobar as he goes on the run from police, culminating in the infamous roof shoot-out that ultimately leads to his death.
2. Longmire, September 23
The crime drama has had a bit of a tumultuous past, getting canceled on A&E before being brought to Netflix for a fourth season that aired last fall. Now about a year later, fans will finally be able to tune in to the long-awaited Season 5. Robert Taylor and Katee Sackhoff will both return to their lead roles as Walt Longmire and Vic Moretti, respectively. Speculation suggests that this season will be the last run for Longmire, although that has yet to be confirmed.
3. Voltron: Legendary Defender, TBA
Netflix’s reboot of the animated 1980s series only aired its inaugural season earlier this summer, but it’s not waiting much longer to return for another around. As announced at San Diego Comic-Con and confirmed on Twitter, the show will kick off its sophomore season as soon as this fall. An exact date has not yet been confirmed, but the voice cast — including Jeremy Shada, Bex Taylor-Klaus, Josh Keaton, Tyler Labine, Steven Yeun, Kimberly Brooks, and Rhys Darby — is expected to return.
4. Fuller House, TBA
According to data gathered by tech firm Symphony Advanced Media, Netflix’s revival of Full House was not only one of the streamer’s most-watched shows, but also one of the most popular series on TV overall. So it should come as no surprise that the company wasted no time renewing it for a second season and starting production on more episodes.
The series, which brought back almost all of the original cast members, will pick up with the story of the recently widowed D.J. Tanner (Candace Cameron Bure) as she balances raising her three kids and her work life, with some help from sister Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) and best friend Kimmy (Andrea Barber). Filming is currently underway and though a release date has not been set, Season 2 will likely kick off in either late 2016 or early 2017.
5. The Fall, TBA
Over a year and a half since its last season, the third and final season of Netflix and BBC’s The Fall is at last set to launch in the next few months. As confirmed on Twitter, the crime drama, which will conclude the story of serial killer Paul Spector (Jamie Dornan) and DSI Stella Gibson (Gillian Anderson), will air its next round of episodes sometime this fall. It will air on the U.K.’s BBC before hitting Netflix for U.S. viewers.
Neither the channel nor the streaming service has announced an official premiere date yet, but stateside fans shouldn’t worry about having to wait too long. In past seasons, the series has arrived to Netflix only about a month after the conclusion of its run on the BBC.
