What’s next for Netflix’s French output? Below, we’ll preview some of the upcoming titles that Netflix has in development from its French division, including all the movies and series confirmed to be in development so far.

Netflix France has produced some major hits for Netflix in recent years. Lupin is perhaps their most significant title, having secured numerous spots on the most-watched all-time list. On the film side, they’ve found success with titles such as Miraculous, The Takedown, Restless, Lost Bullet, and Rogue City.

However, it must be said that the country has had its fair share of less successful ventures. These have been diligently tracked by Frédéric, a contributor to What’s on Netflix, on his blog Netflix N Chiffres. Another report from the blog suggests that their content ranks as the fifth most popular in Europe, trailing behind Poland, Spain, Britain, and Norway.

So what is coming up? Here are all the confirmed movies plus the new and returning series coming to Netflix from France.


New French Movies Coming to Netflix in 2024 & Beyond

Noémie Saglio, who has directed episodes on Netflix’s flagship show Stranger Things, will get her own Netflix film debut in 2024 with the release of Nice Girls.

The cast includes Alice Taglioni, Stefi Celma, Baptiste Lecaplain, and Noémie Lvovsky, with filming having commenced back in September.

Per Netflix, here’s what you can expect from the new crime comedy:

“The intrepid Léo, self-proclaimed “best cop on the Riviera”, learns that his colleague and brother Ludo has been killed in Hamburg. While she wants to discover the truth, she is forced by her superior to let a German supercop do it. There is no question of letting a “shame in a suit” investigate, especially when she discovers that it is in fact the attractive and highly trained Mélanie. Forced to team up, these two women with characters as explosive as they are opposites have no idea that Nice is facing an imminent threat and that they are more linked than they imagine…”
