There will be 700 Netflix Originals released in 2018
Now that is a lot of bingeing
“Let’s continue to add content — it’s working, it’s driving growth,” Wells said, according to Mashable. The company's longtime business model has been supported by the idea that original content will spur steady growth.

Prepare for some wild nights you crazy streamers—2018 will have plenty to watch.
