Onesumore: Our Most Anticipated Upcoming Netflix Originals (2021 & Beyond)
With HBO Max now in the wild, you might be wondering what Netflix has in store next. As we work on huge previews of everything coming to Netflix in 2020, 2021 and beyond, we’ve been thinking about picking our next favorite titles.
Each of the core What’s on Netflix teams have picked our most anticipated series, movies or franchises in certain locations. There are nine in total, but of course, that’s only a fraction of what Netflix actually has coming out soon.
Avatar: The Last Airbender
We start with Avatar: The Last Airbender who has the potential to be Netflix’s biggest show behind Stranger Things.
The live-action reboot of the Nickelodeon series has been in development for some time and is expected to grace our screens sometime in late 2021 or later.
The original creators on board give us high hopes for the projects, unlike some of the other adaptations that Netflix has done that have fallen relatively flat on their faces.
The animated series just dropped on Netflix and instantly rose to the top of the Netflix charts.
That’s right, Netflix has access to Narnia’s entire library of books, and they will adapt in various forms over the next few years.
It’s a colossal business with Disney having a great idea over the past two decades.
An architect is in place for the universe and we are already hearing snippets of what to expect. Either way, we can’t wait for a whole new generation to be introduced to Narnia.
With every major streaming service having a universe of superheroes, Netflix is following suit. Disney + has Marvel and HBO Max has some access to the DC Universe and Netflix has Millarworld (and others too!).
Mark Millar is a comic book veteran who has worked in the Marvel Universe but is also known for Kingsman and Kickass.
Netflix has extensive access to its entire catalog and has explained that there will be a lot of crossovers.
The first title to be released as part of the Millarworld universe is Jupiter’s legacy due out in May 2021.
Army of the Dead Universe
Zack Snyder has become a major force in recent years, pioneering DC’s efforts to create a shared universe, and while that effort is seemingly over, his efforts are heading to the Netflix universe of Army of the Dead which starts in May with the title. Army of the dead movie.
A prequel movie is in the works, as is an animated series also called Army of the Dead: Lost Vegas.
Of horror guru Mike Flanagan’s new Netflix projects, we’re perhaps the most excited for Midnight Mass.
Here’s what you can expect from the horror project:
“A community experiences miraculous events and fearful omens after the arrival of a mysterious priest.
Magic the Gathering
One of the greatest card games and most played card games in the world, there is a huge amount of lore and history behind the colorful characters of Magic the Gathering. The potential to explore the vast worlds of MTG is an exciting prospect and with the series focusing on one of the franchise’s most popular Planeswalkers, Chandra Nalaar, fans have every right to be excited. The directors of Avengers: EndgameThe Russo Brothers will be working on the animated series, and as fans of the card game itself you can bet they will make an incredible series.
The sand man
One of the most anticipated originals among subscribers, including myself, we’ve been eagerly awaiting any news related to The Sandman, and its eventual arrival on Netflix. The series, based on the comic book characters created by Neil Gaiman, is expected to be one of the most mind-boggling and thought-provoking originals we’ve seen to date.
We are still waiting for a distribution list, but if The sand man even half of casting featured in audiobook reading from the comic book series, then the hype train is firmly ready to go.
Held prisoner for several decades, Dream, the manifestation of dreams, escapes the deadly wizard who kept him prisoner. Back in her real life, Dream finds her world in a state of disrepair and seeks to repair the damage caused by her long absence.
Despite my better judgment, I truly believe that the resident Evil The series has major potential to be one of the best originals Netflix has to offer. There’s a lot that Constantine, the production studio, can go wrong with, Exposure A being the movies, but there’s also a lot that needs to be done to make sure everything is done right.
Survival horror, poise, and loyalty to the source material is the perfect recipe for success, and fans flock to Netflix to watch the series.
There are at least two projects (although there is another project in development), these being the live-action series and the animated series. Endless darkness.
A hundred years of loneliness / A hundred years of loneliness
Netflix is bringing this modern classic to our screens for the very first time. But maybe there’s a good reason we’ve never had an adaptation before?
A hundred years of loneliness is a magical and realistic novel by Colombian writer Gabriel García Márquez. After the Buendia family for over a century, the plot is notoriously complicated, with dozens of fantastic characters and events. So far, García Marquez and his family have refused to sell the rights to an adaptation. They believed that no movie could do justice to the intricacies of the plot, and were particularly disgusted by any suggestion of an English adaptation. However, Netflix must have said something right. The family agreed to a limited-edition Spanish adaptation, with Gabriel García Márquez’s sons as executive producers.
While many literary fans are (understandably) skeptical, we believe this will be a very popular series.
