Netflix renews Queer Eye, One Day at a Time and more


Netflix has confirmed six different original series they are renewing for further seasons, including Queer Eye season two and One Day at a Time season three, and more.

Queer Eye was originally a series on Bravo where a team of gay men helps clueless straight guys makeover their lives. The areas in which they help can range anywhere from fashion to decor to food and wine advice.

The Netflix series has recast the main team, who each have an area of expertise. Bobby Berk says that we can expect a lot more diversity in season two, and not just straight guys.

One Day at a Time originally ran from 1975-1984 and was about a divorced mom who moved with her children to Indianapolis. The premise of the Netflix reboot is the same, but with a Latino twist. The series is well rated by both viewers and critics, earning a 98% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Nailed It, the reality contest show in which people try to recreate fancy baked goods, is coming back for a second season. We can all relate to trying to recreate the beautiful DIY creations from Pinterest, the unicorn rainbow cakes or any decorative household item, and feeling that sense of hilarious failure when it comes out a complete mess. Now we can watch people do it for us!

Drug Lords is a documentary series focusing on, well, drug lords and drug cartels and the authorities who bring them to justice. Considering the popularity of Netflix’s Narcos and Dope, viewers are clearly interested in series about drug crime. Season one featured episodes about Pablo Escobar, the Cali Cartel, Frank Lucas, and the Pettingill Clan. Deadline reports that Season 2 will feature episodes on El Chapo, LA crack queenpin Jemeker Thompson, Jamaican drug lord Christopher Coke, and Dutch dealer Klaas Bruinsma.

Dope, the documentary series focusing on how drugs affect different areas, is also up for a second season. Season 1 featured episodes on cocaine in Oakland, heroin in Baltimore, marijuana in Mexican border towns, and on how the drugs industry affects the sale of guns.

Thankfully, docu-series don’t all have to be heavy viewing. Netflix renews The Toys That Made Us, the show about how different popular toys and toy brands made it big. Season one focused on the Star Wars (where George Lucas really made all his money and the main reason behind the creation of abomination Jar Jar Binks) and Barbie, among others. Season two plans to feature episodes on Lego, Star Trek, Transformers, and Hello Kitty.
