The Weekend Series: five Netflix Originals to look forward to in 2017

Since the massive success of House of Cards and Orange is the New Black, it seems like Netflix has only increased in quality when it comes to its original shows. As more an more people ditch television for streaming services, the demand for such quality material has risen exponentially.

Our hopes for 2017 are set extraordinarily high, and we are already salivating at the thought of binge watching some great new content. Here are five shows we are chomping at the bit to watch this year. more
