Say goodbye to your social life, because Netflix just dropped some news that’ll keep you glued to your TV for the next year at least.
The streaming giant, which has already positioned itself as an HBO-level content producer, plans to create approximately 700 original TV shows and movies in 2018 alone. Oh, and it has a $8 billion budget to make that happen.
So what kind of original content can we expect? The ’Flix will keep churning out favorites like Stranger Things and The Crown, and will also develop new material with the help of TV powerhouses Ryan Murphy (American Horror Story, Glee) and Shonda Rhimes (Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal). Also on the docket? New Making a Murderer, a show from organization guru Marie Kondo and so, so much more.
