Why Orange is the end of the first era of Netflix?

adminOctober 18, 2018




The cast of The orange is the new black He released a video on Wednesday afternoon announcing that the next seventh season would be the last of the innovative and award-winning Netflix series. That is not necessarily terrible news. Seven seasons is a good and healthy race and more than what most shows get. Also is true that The orange is the new black he has lost part of the drive that once made him unavoidable on television: there seem to be limits to how far a narrative can be carried within the confines of prison walls.

The orange is the new blackThe end of the series will continue a little behind the final season of House of cards which opens next month. It can be hard to remember a time when Netflix it did not have a new original series that opens every week, but in 2013, when the company went from being a convenient place to berth Frasier to the creator of content in its own right, House of cards Y The orange is the new black They were two of the first shows released. It was also the programs that instantaneously turned Netflix into a prestigious home, award-winning storytellers when they got Emmy, the cable station for directing and a guest actress in its first two years in the game. I went five years later and Netflix tied HBO with the most statues won at the 2018 Emmy Awards. But now the platform has set its sights elsewhere and it's time to say goodbye to the stories that launched an empire.

In addition to House of cards Y Orange is the new black, the rest of the first wave of original dramas based on Netflix algorithms:Hemlock Grove, Marco Polo, Bloodline, Sense8, and (technically) NarcosThey have already left At one point, it seemed that the infinitely deep pockets of Silicon Valley combined with the top-secret classification data meant that Netflix would Never cancel a series, but the platform has recently become a bit more judicious and started cutting programs here and there.

Even Marvel superheroes, too big to fail at the box office, fell to Netflix's ax for the first time last week, when the much-maligned Iron fist He failed to get a third season. That does not mean an end to comic book shows on Netflix, but it does mean that this particular universe is not infinitely expansive. The Marvel Netflix shows have been on a slippery downhill for a while, but Reckless Season 3, which opens this week, is a return to form and a sign that if the platform reigns slightly in its television ambitions, there is still much juice in the street superheroes.

But with the expired Emmys, the rising stock prices and the endless stream of content that keeps TV critics and fans struggling to keep up, Netflix has no worlds to conquer? On the contrary. The company is now channeling a considerable amount of energy and resources to take over the world of cinema. In addition to filling their stables with the cinematic talent of List A, Netflix hired a phalanx of strategists from the awards season, fought with the Cannes Film Festival for their right to compete and even changed their world-famous logo, all in the search. by Oscar Gold.

Netflix made a small splash at the Oscars earlier this year when the drama Mudbound he was nominated in several front-line categories and the documentary Icarus He took home the first statue of the platform for a feature film project. With Alfonso Cuaroón. Rome A prominent film festival and one of the first Oscar favorites for next year's ceremony, Netflix's priorities could not be clearer. But if Netflix takes the biggest prize in Hollywood next year, it would be nice to remember Piper, Taystee, Suzanne, Sophie, Poussey, Red, Alex, Lorna, Nicky, Claire Underwood and all the other women who opened the way.

The world would be a much sadder place if it were not for Titus Andromedon, and the guy who plays it is also quite charming.

Of all the Strange things children, Millie Bobby Brown has become the most recognized outside of Hawkins, Indiana. You may have seen it before it hit Netflix, during guest turns in series that Modern family, NCIS, Y Grey's AnatomyBut it was the supernatural drama that catapulted her to fame. Now, she has found her next franchise: she is starring next year Godzilla: king of monsters and 2020 Godzilla vs. Kong. Considering what we have seen of her in Strange things, We are guessing that those monsters will not know what hit them.

When The orange is the new black Premiered for the first time, one of its most exciting characters was Sophia Burset, a trans woman actually played by a trans actress. And since then, the Cox star has risen, both as an advocate and as an actress, with roles in Guide to brides to divorce Y The Mindy project, as well as its own series (certainly short duration), Doubt. In addition to its continuous role in Orange, She is ready to appear in a new YouTube Premium series, Rare city, produced by Jordan Peele

Danielle Brooks

The orange is the new black It was Brooks' first real foray into television acting, and she got the gold with her. In five seasons, Tasha "Taystee" Jefferson has become the de facto protagonist of the show, as the series has discovered that Piper often works better when she is part of the ensemble. And Taystee's struggle to find peace after her best friend, Poussey Washington (Samira Wiley), was killed was one of the most emotional arcs of the series so far. Like many of her Netflix colleagues, Brooks has also expanded to other television roles, but perhaps her most impressive achievement outside the series was her Tony-nominated performance on Broadway, as Sophia in The color Purple in 2015.
