Streaming services like Netflix have become the go-to place for the “binge watchers” of the world. As most of the TV seasons produced by these services hit their respective platforms all at once, people have become used to taking in an entire year’s worth of content over a weekend. It’s a winning formula, but now it seems Netflix and Chelsea Handler will once again team up to deviate from that method and provide audiences with a weekly series. The comedienne recently tweeted details about her upcoming Netflix show, check them out below.
Continuing her rapid ascent towards becoming the queen of Netflix, Chelsea Handler has just revealed the details behind her latest show for the streaming service on Twitter. The series will take the format of a talk show, something Handler has become more than familiar with in recent years, and produce three shows per week with each episode being released on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. The rationale for this method seems to be due to the format of the upcoming series. As a talk show host, Chelsea Handler needs a platform that will allow her to tackle issues in a timely manner. Producing an entire season of television, and releasing it all at once isn't necessarily conducive to a program that will likely tackle incredibly topical and relevant concepts.
Chelsea Handler also used her tweet as an opportunity to humorously provide us with many other details about the series, which you can check out, below, if you can decipher her handwriting.
The show will see her travelling around, and allow her to try new things, not unlike her other Netflix series, Chelsea Does , and she has three potential guests that she will never give up on: the pope, Michelle Obama, and the maid of Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Anyone who knows anything about how Netflix does television will recognize that this deviates from the platform’s typical method of releasing an entire season of content at once. That being said, this isn’t the first time that Netflix has broken their all at once formula. Last year we also reported on the sci-fi Netflix series Between, which similarly staggered its release of episodes.
Of course, this doesn’t mean that Netflix has begun to completely shy away from the all at once method they have become known for. Plenty of upcoming series, such as the second season of Daredevil, or the second season of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, will maintain the tried and true method of providing an entire season of content to users in one fell swoop. If nothing else, we’re simply excited for Chelsea Handler’s new talk show to stand out from the pack as a change of pace compared to what we’re used to.
We will bring you more information related to Chelsea Handler’s upcoming talk show as it becomes available to us. The series will premiere on May 11, and release a new episode every Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. Stay tuned for more details.
