Netflix unleashes heavy artillery, and it does so without going through the press. During the digital maxi-event I know, broadcast on 25 September on all Netflix digital channels, the streaming platform has, in fact, presented directly to fans the many novelties that will arrive in the catalog in the coming months: 70 series and 28 original films anticipated by trailers or short films and introduced by 145 actors directly involved in the projects. Let’s start from Emily in Paris: after the partly unexpected success of the first season, the doors of new episodes are opened for the young Emily played by Lily Collins in the name of baguettes, scarves and pain au chocolat.
The landing on Netflix is scheduled for December 22 and, judging from the first images, it seems that the trend will be, once again, concentrated more on appearance than on substance, more on the glam clothes worn by the protagonist than on her vision of the world. The definitive conclusion of de The House of Paper, which will arrive on the platform on December 3 and will see, perhaps for the last time, the Professor and his gang grappling with the heist of the century, and the second season of The Witcher with Henry Cavill: the date is set for December 17, and for fans of the genre – the first was one of the most watched series ever on Netflix – it is now a countdown that started more than a year ago.
We will have to wait until 2022, however, to appreciate the new episodes of three very strong titles such as Stranger Things, which in the clip presented during Tudum took us back to the fifties, The Crown, who will investigate the history of the Windsors since the 1990s, and Bridgerton.
The latter, as we know, will shift the axis of interest from Daphne and the Duke of Hastings, who will not appear in the new episodes, to Anthony Bridgerton, played by Jonathan Bailey. In the extract shown in the preview, we get to know a new character destined to enter the hearts of the spectators: it is the young Kate Sharma, who has the face of Simone Ashley, a resolute woman who will not take so long to put the boy, struggling with the choice of his new wife. In short, the meat on the fire is a lot, and the guests at the barbecue are hungry like a wolf.
