2016 Netflix Premiere Schedule: Dates For New And Returning Shows

Netflix doesn't always announce release dates well in advance, but we do know that the subscription streaming company has a few original series, movies and first-run non-US programs hitting the calendar in the next year. If you'd like to figure out what you are going to watch over the next coming months, you can check out the list of official dates Netflix has announced, below.

As you should be able to note if you have eyes, Netflix hasn't announced when all of its originals will be returning. Obviously, we know the likes of Daredevil have been renewed for Season 3. We also know that Netflix has a ton of original movies, including flicks from Adam Sandler coming up. And as soon as official premiere dates for each of these are announced, we'll update the official calendar.

In addition, if you are looking for a list of the programs that Netflix is planning on releasing in 2017, please check out the 2017 Netflix Premiere Schedule, which will be updated as Netflix makes announcements. Or scroll below and check out everything we know about that's coming. And get excited. The streaming service may not be as full of older movies as it once was, but its lineup of original programming and movies continues to get better and better.
