This is the most comprehensive preview article we’ve ever undertaken and includes some top-tier content and we cannot wait for Netflix to expand on this list. Where limited information is available, we’ve added handy tables of title names.

Does this represent all the Netflix Original series? Absolutely not. This is simply the result of all the announced titles. As you know, Netflix announces new titles all the time and there are quite a few announced titles that we haven’t listed below because they are likely not coming for a while.

Drama Series

A Series of Unfortunate Events (Season 3)

Expected release date: January 1st, 2019

A Series of Unfortunate Events is the final season to the three-year project that successfully adapted the Lemony Snicket books over to the big screen. The third season will wrap up all the storylines and although there’s not going to be a season 4, Netflix could adapt some of the other books.

Black Earth Rising (Season 1)

Confirmed Release Date: January 25th
Note: Only an Original outside the United Kingdom

This BBC series has already aired in the United Kingdom to much critical success and it has been confirmed that everyone outside of the United Kingdom will be getting all eight episodes of the show on January 25th. The series stars Michaela Coel and John Goodman who are in the legal battle of their lives as they attempt to prosecute an African militia leader.

Black Mirror (Season 5)

Expected release date: 2019

Netflix has kept a very tight-lipped on the release date of Season 5. Bandersnatch came in 2018 which saw Netflixers trial the brand new interactive features on the Netflix player but a full season is due out very soon too.

We do know a few bits and pieces surrounding season 5 as we’ve covered in our preview.

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (Part 2)

Confirmed Release Date: April 5th

Few shows dropped on Netflix to the fanfare that Sabrina did in 2018. After its first 10 episodes plus a Christmas special, fans were itching for more and don’t worry, Netflix has you covered. It’s already got another 10 episodes planned for April plus we’re also likely going to get the first part of season 2 in late 2019 too. Praise satan.

Designated Survivor (Season 3)

Expected Release Date: Summer or Fall 2019

After ABC canceled Designated Survivor fans campaigned fiercely for Netflix to acquire the political drama. After a few months of uncertainty, it was finally announced in September that Designated Survivor would be coming to Netflix and will produce season 3 of the show. Reducing the number of episodes down to 10, we can expect the release of Designated Survivor at the earliest for summer of 2019.

Lucifer (Season 4)

Expected Release Date: Fall 2019

Another show rescued by Netflix, Lucifer had been let go by FOX. With production of season 4 to wrap up in December, we should expect to see the release of Lucifer season 4 in the Fall of 2019. The series is super popular in international territories and will continue the story (albeit across a smaller amount of episodes) of the devil.

Mindhunter (Season 2)

Expected release date: Early 2019

We’ve been waiting what feels like an age for season 2 of Mindhunter. Expected to release in the first quarter of 2019 fans are waiting in anticipation to see which serial killers the FBI agents interview next. For casting news and info make sure to check out our preview for season 2.

Orange is the New Black (Season 7)

Expected release date: Summer 2019

The very last season of OiTNB is going to be a big one. As the show has dipped in ratings over the past couple of seasons the last season couldn’t come at a better time. With plenty of story threads to wrap up for its finale, we’ll be saying our final goodbyes to the inmates of Litchfield. Follow our ongoing coverage for the final season.

Ozark (Season 3)

Expected release date: Summer to Late 2019

Ozark was the surprise package of 2017. Having been received overwhelmingly positive by subscribers it was an easy decision for Netflix to renew for season 2. After another successful the season the crime-drama will be returning in 2019.

Stranger Things (Season 3)

Expected release date: July 4th, 2019

Arguably the most anticipated show coming to Netflix in 2019, we can’t wait for season 3 of Stranger Things. For ongoing coverage of Stranger Things season 3, check out our preview. Season 2 saw Will taken once again by the upside down monsters but in a different form. For this season, we’re going to 1985.

The OA (Season 2)

Expected Release Date: Sometime in 2019

It’s been a tantalizing wait for the second season of The OA after a bizarre and an ending which left us with way more questions than it did answers. Brit Marling took to social media in 2018 to let us know the progress of the second season with essentially boiling down to it’ll be done when it’s done. In a more recent update, she said they’re in the final stages meaning we can probably expect it during 2019.

The Crown (Season 3)

Expected Release Date: Sometime in 2019

The Crown soon became one of the flagships shows for Netflix. With a brand new cast set to take the lead for season 3, fans are waiting in anticipation for its release. For more coverage for season 3 check out our preview. The series has already been renewed for season 4 too which hopefully won’t be as long of a wait that we’ve had to endure between seasons 2 and 3.

The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance

Jim Henson’s company is known for the fantastic puppetry which is set to go to the next level in this 10-episode series coming in 2019. The series will serve as a prequel to the movie of the same name.

Besides the big talent behind the pupetry, there’s some top tier talent voicing the characters too. This includes Helena Bonham-Carter, Natalie Dormer, Eddie Izzard, Toby Jone, Mark Strong, and Alicia Vikander.

The Last Kingdom (Season 4)

Expected Netflix Release Date: Fall 2019

The Last Kingdom since it’s been a Netflix original has stepped up the production and with season 4 confirmed and already begun filming. It’s fair to say that The Last Kingdom should be back on our screens by the end of the year.

The Umbrella Academy (Season 1)

Confirmed Release Date: February 15th


The Umbrella Academy is an exciting new series coming to Netflix in February 2019. The series is based on the comic books of the same name and will hopefully be a smash hit for the Dark Horse title. For more information on the series make sure to check out our preview.

Check out our coverage for season 3.

One Day at a Time (Season 3)

Confirmed Release Date: February 8th, 2019

One Day at a Time is only one of 3 live-action sitcoms on Netflix. The series has done exceptionally well since its release and has been highly praised as one of the best comedies on Netflix.

Real Rob (Season 3)

Real Rob is one of the worst rated comedies on Netflix but somehow still keeps getting renewed. The series is due its third season and as teased by Rob Schneider in January, a trailer is going to be dropping soon for the new season. That means we can probably expect it to arrive in early 2019.

The Ranch (Part 7 & 8)

Expected Release Dates: Early 2019 and late 2019

The show has seen a big shake-up recently with the removal of Rooster after the actor who plays him was accused of sexual assault.

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (Season 4 – Part 2)

Marvel Series Coming in 2019

2019 will likely be much quieter for the Marvel series on Netflix. In 2018, four series released under the Marvel banner with those being Daredevil season 3, Jessica Jones season 2, Luke Cage season 2 and Iron Fist season 2.

Of course, you may have heard Luke Cage, Daredevil and Iron Fist aren’t returning for new solo series. In fact, it’s entirely likely 2019 will mark the end for new Marvel shows on Netflix.

For more on the upcoming Marvel series, keep an eye on our ongoing preview of all the Marvel series to come and which ones have been canceled.

The Punisher (Season 2)

Expected release date: January 18th

The Punisher wasn’t intended to go beyond his appearance in Daredevil season 2 let alone get his own solo series. Here we are, though, with The Punisher ready to be the next series to release on Netflix from The Defenders.

Jessica Jones (Season 3)

Expected Release Date: Summer 2018

Jessica Jones was a smash hit with season 1 but saw a dip in form for her second outing. With only 3 Marvel shows left standing the heat will be on for season 3. Krysten Ritter will also be making her directorial debut during the next season.

Animated Series (Adults)

The Adult-Animated shows on Netflix have been nothing short of excellent. Whether it’s coming of age Big Mouth or the Family sitcom F is for Family, all have been wildly entertaining. It will come as no surprise to many that nearly all the Animated shows to have aired this year have all been renewed. Like 2018, we can expect 2019 to be another excellent year.

Big Mouth (Season 3)

Expected Release Date: Fall 2019

Big Mouth is one of best adult comedies out there at the moment, and we dare anyone to argue against us. After 2 excellent seasons that left audiences howling with laughter, Big Mouth will be making another big return in 2019. The release date is yet to be confirmed but we expect to land sometime in the Fall of 2019.

Bojack Horseman (Season 6)

Expected Release Date: Summer/Fall 2019

Bojack Horseman is one of the oldest Netflix Originals and was the first original animated adult-comedy. Its popularity has only grown tenfold upon each season release. For casting news, trailers and info for the upcoming season make sure to check out our preview.

Castlevania (Season 3)

Expected Release Date: Summer/Fall 2019

Fans were delighted to learn that season 2 had double the amount of episodes than season 1. After another fantastic season, it comes as no surprise that Netflix was so fast to renew for a 3rd outing. Will we see the return of Trever Belmont? Or we will be treated to a new tale of the Belmont bloodline? Expected in the fall of next year, we can’t wait for season 3 of Castlevania.

Disenchantment (Part 2)

Expected Netflix Release: Early 2019

The creator of The Simpsons and Futurama introduced his brand new series on Netflix in 2018 with the first part of Disenchantment. The series has already been renewed for a lot of new episodes including part 2 and 3 that’s expected to arrive in 2019.

Paradise PD (Season 2)

Expected Release Date: Summer/Fall 2019

Paradise P.D hasn’t been as popular as the other adult titles on Netflix but many fans still enjoyed the show nonetheless. For the latest news and information on the second season of Paradise P.D check out our preview.

Animated Series (Kids)

The Dragon Prince

Expected Release Date: Late 2019

It may be pushing it for a 2019 release date but depending on the amount of episodes season 2 will have determines when we can expect the next season release date. The show has been very popular with young children, so many will be excited to see The Dragon Prince return sooner rather than later.

Legend Quest

Expected Release Date: Early 2019

The Spanish series was the very first animated title to be produced in Latin America and first released worldwide back in February of 2017. Its safe to assume that season 2 of Legend Quest must be close to its release and that’s why we believe that the next season will air in early 2019.

Carmen Sandiego

Expected Release Date: Sometime in 2019

Netflix is rebooting the animated Carmen Sandiego for new audiences in 2019. It’ll feature the voice of Gina Rodriguez (Jane the Virgin) and Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things). 20 episodes are being produced for release sometime in 2019.

Green Eggs and Ham

Netflix’s animated adaptation of Green Eggs and Hamm by Dr. Suess was originally supposed to release in 2018 but that’s now since slipped to 2019. Unfortunately, all other information on the series is scarce and the moment. Here’s hoping for an information dump in early 2019.

The Last Kids on Earth

Expected Release Date: Sometime in 2019

The popular children’s books of the same name are being adapted into an animated series for Netflix. There are 4 books in the current series but it is unknown how many more are set to be published. That being said if the series is to take each book and have episodic arcs we could see anywhere between 12 to 16 episodes for the first season! Still unconfirmed on the release date but the brand new series will definitely be coming in 2019!

Twelve Forever

Expected Release Date: Sometime in 2019

The original pilot for Twelve Forever made its debut back in 2015 on Cartoon Network. Sadly a full series wasn’t commissioned and the status of Twelve Forever was out of flux for a while before finding a permanent home at Netflix. The series surprisingly has already garnered a small loyal fan base with many overjoyed they’ll be getting the first season sometime in 2019.

Wizards: Tales of Arcadia

Expected Release Date: Sometime in 2019

The Arcadia series is arguably one of the most popular franchises on Netflix for children. The wider universe of the world has been expanded with the series of 3 Below and now Wizards will further expand on that. An official release date is yet to be announced but the series will be arriving in 2019.

Anime Series

Anime can take a significant amount of time to produce. Between the voice work, animation, and post-production it can take up to 6 months just to produce one episode. So for your favorite anime shows that are taking a while to return, just remember the length of time it takes for a studio to create your favorite product. That being said there will be plenty of Anime to look forward to in the coming year.

In a similar situation to Last Hope, the worldwide release of Baki will receive the first 13 episodes as part one on December 18th. Part 2 is yet to receive a release date but we can assume at the earliest Spring will be the release of season 2.

B: The Beginning (Season 2)

Expected Release Date: Late 2019
