Netflix Announces Spring Premiere Dates – Including Daredevil
The first day of the annual winter Television Critics Association meeting yielded a slew of interesting news from streaming giant Netflix, including the premiere dates of three of the site's highly anticipated shows.
First up, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
, a comedy from Tina Fey and Robert Carlock (Fey's partner in their NBC series 30 Rock
), will debut on the streaming site on March 6. The series, which was rescued by Netflix after NBC denied it a series pick-up, will star Ellie Kemper (The Office
) as a woman re-entering the world following time in a doomsday cult.
The next series to premiere will be Bloodline
, a family drama starring Kyle Chandler, Linda Cardellini, Sissy Spacek and Sam Shepard. The series is from the creative team behind the drama Damages
, and will debut on March 20.
the first of four highly anticipated Marvel hero shows, will debut on April 10, a bit of a surprise, as many thought the site's refusal to hold a Comic Con panel in 2014 meant the show wasn't set for launch until at least late 2015. The series is set to star Charlie Cox as the title character, with Rosario Dawson, Vincent D'Onofrio, Deborah Ann Woll and Elden Henson alongside for the ride.
Finally, the star-studded Grace and Frankie
is set to premiere on May 8, and will star Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin as former enemies who become friends when their husbands leave them for each other. The series will also star Martin Sheen, Sam Waterston, Brooklyn Decker, June Diane Raphael and Ethan Embry. As is the case with all Netflix shows, each series will debut on a Friday, with all episodes for the season becoming available at one time.
