      There are loads of new shows and movies coming to Netflix this month. Every few days, a new show or movie will be available to watch. Nearly 2,000 movies and shows are currently available to stream on Netflix. The entertainment company has become very popular over the last few years and has over 90 million subscribers.

     Season one of Marvel’s Iron Fist will be available on Netflix on the 17th. The show is based on the Marvel character and will tie into another series that’ll be released in the near future. The main character has the ability to use his iron fist as well as having unbelievable fighting skills. Danny Rand, the everyday name Iron Fist goes by, is a billionaire Buddhist monk that is struggling with self identity. He died in a plane accident and came back to life to take control of the company his father left behind. The show will be full of action and drama as well as suspense.

     Another thing coming to Netflix this month is Coraline. This movie was released in 2009 and was based on Neil Gaiman’s book under the same name. The movie is about a young girl named Coraline that is very lonely and curious. She moves into a new home with her mother and father; she becomes bored very easily and decides to explore the house. She discovers a cat that follows her and meets a boy named Wybie. Although at first she seems to not take a liking to him, they become friends over time. Coraline discovers a small door that interests her so she asks her mother about it. The movie takes the viewer through her journey as she explores the door that leads her to the “other house”.

     Finally, season two of Better Call Saul will be available on the 27. This show is about lawyer James “Jimmy” McGill; it’s a spinoff of another show called Breaking Bad. Better Call Saul shows the life of Jimmy as he works to become a successful lawyer. Viewers learn about Jimmy’s brother and how hard the two of them are struggling. Jimmy is living paycheck to paycheck and Chuck, his brother, has a condition that makes everything even harder for Jimmy. The show is set six year before the time frame Breaking Bad is set in. The two shows contain a lot of the same characters and we get to learn more about each of them.

     These three things as well as many others will be released this month. All sorts of new genres, storylines, and characters will be available soon. Check in on Netflix to find out what else will be there to stream.
