It used to be that Netflix was a hub for all of your favorite movies and TV shows from different studios and networks. But now, the streaming service’s original content is quickly becoming the main draw. Thanks to shows like Stranger Things, Netflix has fulfilled its goal of turning into HBO.
That will continue into 2018, when Netflix will spend an extraordinary $7 billion on original content. So in addition to the returning shows, what new original content do subscribers have to look forward to this year? Here’s what you need to know about some of the shows that are expected to premiere on Netflix in 2018.
1. My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman
David Letterman retired from The Late Show in 2015 after spending 35 years of his life on TV. But now, he has returned.
My Next Guest Needs No Introduction is Letterman’s new show, and the first episode premiered in January. The entire show is basically just one long interview — the first one with Barack Obama, and the second with George Clooney — though there are occasional moments of Letterman in the field talking with other people.
Four more hour-long episodes will air this year, with one being added to Netflix once a month. Upcoming episodes will feature interviews with Malala Yousafzai, Jay-Z, Tina Fey, and Howard Stern.
Next: This show is a reboot of a classic science fiction series from the 1960s.
