Were you one of those people who said, "2017 will be my year"?

Well put your plans on hold because it has been announced that streaming giant Netflix is set to spend $6 billion USD on original shows next year, up a billion from the $5b they spent this year.

The company conservatively wants around 1,000 annual hours of original programmed footage available next year (a minimum of 20 new series) in hopes it will further separate itself from rival networks.

Currently, Netflix has 30 original series in development with plans for an even greater expansion soon. Check out the advertisement posted by HBO above for a sneak peak at some of your current favourites as well as highly anticipated new releases.
