Confirmed! All new Netflix original shows coming in 2017

From old time classics, recent blockbusters and hit TV shows, past and present, Netflix will always have something for us to binge on. Aside from this licensed content, Netflix has been ramping up the production of its own shows these past few years.

In fact, the streaming giant has a new record of sorts in 2017, as it is set to release over 1,000 hours of original content! Good luck binge watching on that since it'll take a mindblowing 41 days straight to get through all these Netflix original shows.

Among the Netflix shows pegged for 2017 are returning favorites "House of Cards," "Orange is the New Black," "Master of None," "Love," "Sense8" and "Stranger Things."

We will also see a few reboots and Netflix pickups like "'Queer Eye For The Straight Guy" and "Mystery Science Theater 3000."

And of course, new original shows like the much-awaited "Iron Fist," "Bill Nye Saves the World," "Anne" and "Ultimate Beastmaster" will make their debut this year.

So be comfy, grab your popcorn - here are all the confirmed Netflix originals coming our way in 2017.

Marvel's Iron Fist

The success of Marvel shows like "Daredevil," "Jessica Jones" and "Luke Cage" proves that the superhero genre is alive and well on Netflix. To complete the planned "The Defenders" team's lineup, the much-awaited show about the fourth Defender, Iron Fist, will premiere on March 17.

"Marvel's Iron Fist" is about New York billionaire Danny Rand who returns to the city after going AWOL for years to rediscover his past and his family's identity.

Hiding behind this privileged persona is an ability unlike anything else - the ability to summon the incredible power of an ancient mystical force known as the Iron Fist. With this power and his unrivaled Kung-Fu mastery, Rand attempts to fight the creeping corruption that's slowly seizing his beloved city of New York.

"Iron Fist" stars Finn Jones, Jessica Henwick and David Wenham.

Ultimate Beastmaster

"Ultimate Beastmaster" is a Sylvester Stallone produced reality obstacle-course game show, which looks a lot like "American Ninja Warrior." The 10-episode first season puts 108 athletes from six countries on a duel with "The Beast," a grueling, colossal obstacle course designed to break even the toughest of the tough.

Each one-hour episode unleashes 12 competitors at The Beast, with one being crowned a Beastmaster at the end. In the 10th and final episode, all nine Beastmasters of preceding episodes will finally compete for the title of "Ultimate Beastmaster." Who shall emerge victorious?

Join Terry Crews and Charissa Thompson as they start their search for the Ultimate Beastmaster on February 24.

Girlboss

This Netflix original, "Girlboss," is based on the best-selling book "#Girlboss" by the founder of fashion brand Nasty Gal, Sophia Amoruso. See her rise from a rebellious vintage clothing eBay seller to the CEO of her own multi-million dollar fashion empire.

"Girlboss" stars Britt Robertson and will premiere on April 23.

Stranger Things (Season 2)

If you're a Netflix subscriber, you've most likely seen (or at least, heard of ) "Stranger Things," the immensely popular sci-fi horror series. Netflix describes it as "a love letter to the '80s" and it is filled with pop culture references to the seminal works of Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, John Carpenter, Stephen King, Robert Zemeckis and so much more.

It looks like the "Stranger Things" gang will be at it again, as they revisit the "Upside-Down" on October 31, just in time for Halloween.

"Stranger Things" stars Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Natalia Dyer, Finn Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin and Charlton Heaton.
