Netflix has a lot of original content in store for the new year.

While fan-favourite shows like “Marvel’s Jessica Jones” and “Grace and Frankie” are returning with new seasons on Netflix in 2018, the streaming service is also set to release some new and anticipated originals.

These include the new sci-fi series “Altered Carbon,” an original, interview-based show from David Letterman, and “Maniac,” a dark comedy starring Jonah Hill and Emma Stone.

Netflix has said it will spend between $US7 billion and $US8 billion on shows and movies in 2018 – up from the $US6 billion it spent in 2017.
