TVLine Items: Netflix's First Weekly Series, Finding Carter Trailer & More

Netflix Between

Serial bingers, beware — Netflix is releasing its next series a little differently.

New episodes of Between, a six-part drama about a virus that kills everyone over the age of 21 in the town of Pretty Lake, will stream weekly beginning May 21 at 9/8c, Netflix announced Monday.

Star Jennette McCurdy (Sam & Cat), who plays pregnant teen Wiley, tweeted this preview of the series:

Ready for more of today’s newsy nuggets? Well…

Game of Thrones actress Carice van Houten (Melisandre) will guest-star on the May 3 episode of The Simpsons, according to Entertainment Weekly, playing Milhouse’s Dutch cousin Annika.

* The first full-length trailer for Finding Carter‘s second season (MTV, March 31) reveals more secrets, surprise hookups and the return of Crash:

    Nope; I’m not feeling the premise so I feel no need to stick around for 6 weeks to see how it ends.

  2. Pat says:

    Was already done, called Jeremiah and wasn’t dumbed down by whiny teens. Ugg to the once a week though. If they start that after releasing their series all at once, it will annoy

    • Dude says:

      I’m pretty sure this one is because Between is a Canadian co-production and it’s airing on television in Canada. Thus once a week.

    • Patrick says:

      Get ready for it. Netflix has got to be learning why Nets do TV the way they do. When you have a show that every one is desperate to see, a la OITNB or House of Cards, you can charge a ton for advertising, especially if there are multiple episodes that you can make people wait for over the course of a few weeks. There is more money in that than in letting people subscribe, share logins, or illegally download the entire thing online within days of Netflix posting the things to their site.

      • HAP says:

        You are simply talking about different business models. Netflix is not hurting for revenue. It may sound silly, but as they are releasing one episode weekly, will the previous episodes remain available the next week?

      • jj says:

        thank you. i can’t understand why they have been blowing them all at once like that.

    Finding Carter promo looks good but I cant believe Crash (horrible horrible character) is still on the show this season.

    • Alyse says:

      I didn’t think he would be in many episodes since I though he was going to be in jail. However I am one of the few who actually like his character, so I’m interested to see where they take his character this season.

    • Ari says:

      I didn’t realize Finding Carter was so close to returning! The promo looks good!

  4. Ellinas1978 says:

    Unless you give people that watch weekly incentives most everyone will binge right before the 6th episode.

  5. H says:

    So Janette McCurdy tweeted…….blanks?

  6. Fred says:

    I like Carice van Houten, good for her! Annika is not a very Dutch name though

  7. Tran says:

    For weeks, we still have no idea if the entire CBS Daytime line-up is getting renewed. Angelica McDaniel better do something really fast or else…

  8. Timmah says:

    I like it. The problem with binge releases is that the show doesn’t get a water-cooler buzz going because everyone’s in a different place.

  9. Joey Padron says:

    trailer for new season of Finding Carter looks good. excited to watch it latet this month!

    I have to give some love to MTV. Never would of guessed they could make a show like Finding Carter. And bonus points for Teen Wolf!!!
