Netflix Will Spend $8 Billion on Original Content in 2018

It’s been announced that in the next year, Netflix is planning spend over $8 billion on original content. This will be including both films and shows.

Netflix expect to release 80 original films in 2018. Ted Sarandos, chief content officer of Netflix, said that these films “range anywhere from the million-dollar Sundance hit, all the way up to something on a much larger scale.” In fact, the company aims to ensure that its library is 50% original content by the end of 2018.

Netflix CFO David Wells also added that this new budget isn’t related to the price increase across Netflix plans, which has reportedly been in the works for a long time.

In addition to already big titles like 13th and Stranger Things, Netflix will also be producing Will Smith’s Bright and a new series of Shonda Rhimes titles.

Is there any new content you’re excited for on Netflix? Let us know!

  1. Tales of people avoiding violence and gun use in the course of settling their differences/conflicts would be nice.
    If you really can’t find any stories like that, I have one or two.

  2. Netflix should buy Bajillion Dollar Properties! Such a funny show and a real shame it is homeless (with a season in the can!) now that Seeso is defunct.

  3. Invest 1/3 of that in INDIGENOUS DIRECTORS and AUTHENTICALLY INDIGENOUS shows with INDIGENOUS CAST AND CREW. such as Mohawk Girls for example, Rezolution Pictures, ImagiNATIVE, etc.

  4. I would love see ANYTHING with Jennifer Morrison and Colin Odonoghue. Either a SPIN-OFF or movie to further CS adventures. Or some new content in a completely different show. But THEY ARE MAGICAL ON SCREEN TOGETHER!!! A LOT OF FANS WANT THIS!!!!

  5. Something like Dune or Ender’s Game but original. Orville shows there’s a hunger for sci-fi that is more hopeful or glamorous or wish fulfillment, not gritty and depressing the way most sci-fi has been in recent years.

  6. Pls just give me back the Get Down. It was wrongfully taken from me and so many others. Yet, 13 reasons why was given a second season but it doesn’t even need a second season. The Get Down does!!!!!

  7. There are epic sf novels from the Liaden universe by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller. Action, adventure, humor, romance, pilots, spies, drama,Balance (and don’t forget the clutch turtles).

  8. The Liaden Universe series by Sharon Lee & Steve Miller, fantastic stories, world & culture building, characters, action….epic!!!

  9. Please buy the rights for Murdoch Mysteries films and shows.

    Consider movie versions of some of the great mystery writers (i. e. Look at recent adaptions of M Connelly, S. King). I would suggest John Sandford and Robert Crais— they have some great books that could be adapted for a series or movies.

    Also- consider an updated version of Baynard Kendrick’s blind PI, Capt Duncan McClain

  10. I’d love to see something like a spinn off of Reign(CW-2013-2017)… just about the French court and old/original cast. I would be perfect!

  11. Once Upon A Time: A CaptainSwan movie starring Jennifer Morrison and Colin O’Donoghue. The actors announced they’d be up for it at a conference. This would be the chance to give the audience the Emma Swan & Killian Jones happily ever after ending we deserved but were robbed of!
