People who consider Netflix as their ultimate best friend have a lot to look forward to. It seems the streaming service has tons of more content to offer down the road.
One of the potential added content to the service points to more episodes of Gilmore Girls. According to an article by The Huffington Post, Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos spoke to the U.K. Press Association about the possibility of extending the well-loved series. The outlet quoted the executive as saying:
“The worst thing is to wait a couple of years for your favorite show to come back and for it to disappoint you but they sure delivered and people were really excited about more and we have been talking to them about the possibility of that.”
The statement is not an official confirmation. However, The Huffington Post surmises that more episodes for Gilmore Girls is still likely. The source cites the willingness of the show’s stars to return for more.
Zombies Invade Netflix
Aside from the possibility of Gilmore Girls episodes, another content coming to the service points to zombies. Gizmodo reports that Netflix announced its partnership with Kim Seong-hun’s new thriller TV series Kingdom.
The series, which hails from Korean production company Astory, eyes a 2018 debut on the platform. Gizmodo describes the series as follows:
“The eight-part series is set during Korea’s Joseon dynasty, an era that covered the 14th to late 19th century… It follows a young crown prince sent on a suicidal investigation into a bizarre medical outbreak. Turns out said outbreak is a zombie apocalypse, and the prince’s forces have to hold back a threat that could destroy Korea and the wider world itself.”
If last year’s Korean zombie film Train to Busan serves as basis, this new series could appeal to viewers as well. Train to Busan notably had a strong box office release to the North American market.
Goosebumps-like TV Show on the Way
For people who may not look forward to new episodes of Gilmore Girls or a Korean zombie series, another groundbreaking content is reportedly on the way for the service.
An unknown source told The Daily Mail that Netflix is considering choose-your-own-adventure-technology for its TV series. For it to work, the report details that producers behind the show will have to film alternate outcomes of the storyline to cater to different viewer choices.
Viewers who grew up reading the choose-your-own-adventure version of Goosebumps will recognize the format. The only difference is instead of reading, viewers will get to watch their favorite Netflix shows according to their preferred path.
Since details for this reported technology are currently scarce, it is best to take it with a grain of salt for now. Bookmark GoshTV in case Netflix releases an official announcement for this project.
