Netflix UK looks set to bolster its badassery with some gritty new additions to the line-up coming this month including the launch of brand new exclusive series From Dusk Till Dawn and Season five of Sons of Anarchy.
Beginning on Netflix UK on March 13th (two days after the US) with episodes updated weekly, From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series will be a Netflix original based upon the 1996 movie of the same name and developed by its co-creator and director Robert Rodriquez.
Themes and references from the cult flick which was written by Quentin Tarantino (who has no involvement in the series) are set to carry over into From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series and the plot retells and re-imagines the story of the criminal Gecko Brothers, Seth and Richie (originally played by George Clooney and QT himself) and their hostages the Fuller family on their journey to Mexico to complete the deal. Fans of the movie will know not all is what it appears and the trip comes with an unexpected and supernatural twist!
Fans of gripping and volatile US drama will be interested to know that Sons of Anarchy will also be renewed on Netflix UK on March 25th with all episodes up to and including Season 5 available for streaming in full. Loyalties divide within the ‘SAMCRO’ gang following the climactic events of Season 4 and the 13 newly added episodes will continue to enthrall as they lead up to the sixth and ongoing season currently airing in the US.
Netflix has also recently announced a partnership with Disney which will see Star Wars: The Clone Wars continue as a Netflix exclusive and a number of Marvel properties such as Daredevil and Iron Fist become TV shows for the first time, so there’s plenty of new content on the way for subscribers of the on-demand movie and TV service.
