Stranger Things

We all know what it's like, your favourite shows drops a new season onto Netflix, and you have to restrain yourself from binging through the entire season in one night. Well, despite releasing huge series like Stranger Things 3 in one go, it looks like Netflix could be about to move to releasing one a week - like old school TV!

If these proposed plans go ahead, this could mean the end to binge-watching your favourite TV shows on the day of release, instead, having to wait until they're all out at the end of the season, or watching them one at a time on the day of release.

The news comes after Netflix US responded to a tweet from Complex Pop Culture saying, 'The weekly release of licensed titles (like Great British Baking Show) isn't new and in hopes of keeping Rhythm + Flow's winner a surprise, we're trying something new! but not happening with more shows than that'.

Referring to The Great British Baking Show, known as Bake Off to us, Netflix confirmed that the weekly release of licensed title isn't new, however they are 'trying something new'.

Cardi B's new competition, Rhythm & Flow, is also set to be released in batches, with just the first four episodes of the 10-episode series being released to begin with in October.

In the meantime, Netflix is still releasing many of its series in one go, such as Stranger Things 3, which was released in July this year. On release, the series broke several streaming records with 18 million people watching the entire third season within four days of its release.

Now take a look at Netflix series you should watch this year:
