Netflix renews 'Marco Polo,' sets premieres for 'Bloodline,' 'Daredevil,' more
Marco Polo has been renewed for a second season, Netflix announced Wednesday at the Television Critics Association’s winter previews.
The drama, which launched in December, stars Lorenzo Richelmy as the titular character during the era of Kublai Khan. Polo will return for a 10-episode sophomore run.
Additionally, Netflix set premiere dates for its new series, including the Tina Fey/Robert Carlock comedy Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, which will bow Friday, March 6. The Kyle Chandler drama Bloodline, from the team behind Damages, will launch Friday, March 20. Marvel’s Daredevil, which stars Charlie Cox as the titular hero, will premiere Friday, April 10. Grace and Frankie, which stars Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin, will be available for streaming on Friday, May 8.
A.K.A. Jessica Jones, which has yet to start production, is expected to premiere roughly a year after Daredevil, but it’s unclear whether it will bow in late 2015 or early 2016. The Luke Cage and Iron Fist projects would follow with a similar time frame.
As for the long-awaited Wet Hot American Summer series, which would reunite the cast of David Wain’s 2001 big-screen parody, Netflix’s Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos played coy. “We’re really excited about the proposition of getting that show together,” he said. “Stay tuned.”
On the Arrested Development front, Sarandos is “very optimistic” about the show returning. “Everyone is trying to make it happen,” he told reporters.
On the family side, The Adventures of Puss in Boots will premiere Jan. 16, followed by Ever After High: Spring Unsprung on Feb. 6 and Mako Mermaids on Feb. 13.
