Is there any question whatsoever that Netflix completely ruled 2017? Other streaming content companies definitely stepped up their game, including Netflix’s top rivals Amazon and Hulu. Both services really turned up the heat with original content and overall additions to their respective catalogs, but there’s no doubt that Netflix is still the king. And the company’s crown jewel is obviously still original content — it’s difficult for rivals to compete with Netflix’s multi-billion dollar budget for original series, movies, and specials.

Netflix released so much great original content in 2017 that it’s almost impossible to nail down our favorite (just kidding… Stranger Things season 2, obvs). From new seasons of popular original shows like Orange is the new Black and The Crown to surprise hits like 13 Reasons Why, Mindhunter, and Ozark, Netflix delivered the goods in 2017. There were also a few solid movies and comedy specials galore, highlighted by the long overdue return of Dave Chappelle.

Of course, Netflix has no plans to give up any ground in 2018, and the company is starting strong in January with 31 brand new movies, specials, and new seasons of a variety of series. Kathy Bates is back in the second season of DisjointedGrace and Frankie is back for its fourth season, a ton of Spanish-language original content is set to premiere, and we’ll also get a new season of Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.
