13 Netflix original movies and series coming in 2017 that we’re most excited for

Prepare to mark your calendars, folks, because on these upcoming dates you’ll need to block out some serious time to accommodate some hefty binge watching.

Ever since the inception of the Netflix original (which would be House of Cards for you Netflix aficionados), we’ve become accustomed to gluing ourselves to the couch and our eyes to the TV whenever a new one comes out. From Narcos to Jessica Jones and even the revitalized Arrested Development, Netflix originals rarely disappoint and are totally worth the hours upon hours of binge watching they necessitate.

So without further ado, we’ve rounded up 13 of the most anticipated originals including television series, movies, and comedy specials that are 100 percent worth the binge watch. Now read on, and prepare for some serious Netflix-and-chill time!
