Netflix to break new record by releasing 400 original TV shows
This year, Netflix has already released 55 TV series by the end of the second week of February, and 56 more have scheduled premiere dates.
Netflix is set to release more Original TV content this year than ever before, with 398 shows already expected to air on the platform throughout the year, according to Ampere Analysis’ latest data.
Furthermore, this figure only includes those shows that are either scheduled to premiere or those due to complete production and likely to premiere in 2022. They exclude any 2022 release shows yet to be commissioned or announced. With 259 of the 395 released Original shows in 2021 announced and released by the platform that same year, Netflix is already set to beat its own record.
Ampere Analysis said that by the second week of February 2022, Netflix had already released 55 TV shows, and had a further 56 ready to be released with known premiere dates for later this year.
Netflix has also revealed that a further 97 titles are due to release in 2022, with dates to be confirmed.
The analyst added that the rest of 2022´s titles are within Netflix’s extensive “in-production” slate. Netflix also has a further 88 TV shows that have already finished production and are “premiere ready”, just waiting to release on the platform.
In addition, Netflix has a further 102 shows that are still currently at the script or shooting stages which Ampere Analysis expects to finish production in time to air this year. All of these shows are already commissioned and in Netflix’s production pipeline.
Commenting on the data, Richard Cooper, Research Director of Ampere Analysis, said: “The competition to keep hold of subscribers in the face of aggressive studio-backed competition has turned Netflix into one of the world’s leading creators of Original content. Netflix’s planned releases for 2022 display an increasing level of diversity, with a greater level of international content and a broader spread of genres than ever before. This promise of more and better shows is exactly what the streaming giant needs to sate the voracious appetite for the content of its 222m global subscriber base and to minimise churn going forward.
