Netflix Original Series Premiere Dates: ‘Black Mirror,’ ‘Gilmore Girls’ and More to Drop in 2016

Netflix has announced premiere dates for its originals through the start of 2017. To save all the “Black Mirror” fans a search, the streaming service will drop the six-episode third season of Charlie Brooker’s dystopian anthology series in the wee hours of Oct. 21.

The streamer will serve up new original content roughly every two to three weeks throughout the fall of 2016, part of its attempt to grab and keep more subscribers both in the U.S. and abroad — all of the releases are global, so Netflix customers in Finland can get their fix at the same time as their American counterparts.

Here’s the complete list of premiere dates in chronological order; all premieres are set for midnight PT:
