Good news (finally): Netflix is bringing the world more ‘Stranger Things’

Not everything about 2017 is bad — at least we still have Stranger Things.

On Friday Netflix announced that the Duffer brothers’ hit show is getting picked up for a third season (duh), which means we’re not done obsessing over Hawkins, Indiana, just yet.

The streaming service shared the news on Twitter after posting a poll asking fans if they wanted more episodes. (Obviously, fans voted yes because we need more Winona Ryder, Finn Wolfhard, and Millie Bobby Brown in our lives.)

Season two of the show dropped in October and The Hollywood Reporter noted that according to data from Nielsen 15.8 million viewers had watched the premiere within just three days of its launch.

This year Netlfix also released a Stranger Things after-show called Beyond Stranger Things, so the streaming platform seems to be just as obsessed with the Upside Down as fans are.

No word yet on when the next season is expected but here’s hoping the wait isn’t too painful.

Netflixs latest hit The Kissing Booth is a Wattpad success story

“One of the most popular movies in the U.S. is a terrible teen rom-com called “The Kissing Booth,” and it’s not in theaters. Instead, this Netflix Original with its paltry 17 percent critics’ score on Rotten Tomatoes, shot up to become the No. 4 movie on IMDb, before more recently dropping down to No. 9. Its leads, Jacob Elordi and Joey King, also became the No. 1 and No. 6 most popular stars on IMDb’s StarMeter, respectively, shortly after the film’s launch.

The secret to the movie’s success, however, is not just a combination of teenagers’ questionable taste in entertainment and the power of Netflix’s distribution — though both play a major role, clearly.

Instead, it’s that “The Kissing Booth” is tapping into a built-in audience: teenage Wattpad users.

Yes, Wattpad.

In case you’re not familiar, Wattpad is an online site…..”

As the world continues to reel from the tragic death of Anthony Bourdain, many fans have been revisiting his great work, from books to television. Now Netflix has announced it’ll still be easy for fans to do so on its streaming service.

The run of the chef’s CNN series, Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown, was to leave the streaming service on Saturday, June 16. But Netflix announced on Tuesday afternoon that they’ve reached an agreement to continuing offering the series for an indefinite amount of time.

Mashable has reached out to Netflix for additional details on the new deal.

The show ran for 96 episodes over 11 “seasons” beginning in 2013. CNN is airing the final episodes throughout the month of June. Bourdain was filming an episode of the show in France when he died.

Parts Unknown is an important part of Bourdain’s legacy because it represents what he did so well: using his fame and platform not just to expose viewers to different cultures through the lens of food, but to educate them as well, making the world just a little bit smaller.
