From Emily in Paris to Lupin: Here are some upcoming Netflix shows you should add to your watchlist
Streaming giant Netflix has the rest of 2022 and all of 2023 sorted with back to back entertainment that never seems to die down. At its annual event Tudum, the platform announced upcoming projects in the pipeline including a Bridgerton spin-off, an official Indian adaptation of Elite called Class and so much more.
On Saturday, the streaming service hosted a two-hour long event that saw clips of TV shows and films made for the Indian, American, French, Latin and Korean markets. You may have thought that Netflix would slow down a bit, given that we only have three months till the new year, but slowing down doesn’t seem to exist in their dictionary and with a line-up like the one announced, we’re not complaining.
Here are some TV shows we’re looking forward to watch!
