Netflix has renewed its epic period drama Marco Polo for a second season, Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos announced Wednesday at the at the Television Critics Association's winter previews.
The series, which launched in December, will resume production later this year on a 10-episode Season 2.
The streaming service also announced the premiere dates for a slew of upcoming original content. Tina Fey's new comedy, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, will debut on Friday, March 6. The dark family drama Bloodline, starring Friday Night Lights alum Kyle Chandler, will launch on Friday, March 20.
The first of Netflix's four upcoming Marvel TV shows, Daredevil, will kick into action on Friday, April 10. May 8 will mark the premiere of Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin's new comedy Grace and Frankie.
Although not yet slated for a premiere, or should we say return date, is the western drama Longmire, which Netflix resurrected in November after A&E axed it in August. Sarandos cited the show's "very loyal, strong base" for the pick-up and said he believes Netflix will be able to "uniquely and efficiently aggregate" an audience for the series. "It just didn't work for the network but it will work great for Netflix," he added.
However, it remains to be seen whether Netflix will be able to resurrect Arrested Developmentagain for a fifth season. "It's an incredibly complicated show to do considering how busy the entire cast is," Sarandos said. "Everyone is trying to make it happen and we're trying to make it happen on a time schedule that works for everybody."
Sarandos was equally cagey regarding the rumors of a possible Wet Hot American Summersequel series of sorts reuniting the cast of the 2001 cult classic."We're really excited by the proposition about getting that show back together," Sarandos teased. "More to come."
