In February 2012, Netflix premiered its first original series: the dramedy Lilyhammer. It took an entire year before their second was launched, but now that House of Cards has become one of the year's most popular programs, you can expect the Net to take less and less time between premieres.
In fact, six new shows are slated for release this year, including "season four" of Arrested Development, Ricky Gervais' Derek, Eli Roth's thriller Hemlock Grove, Orange is the New Black from Weeds creator Jenji Kohan and Bad Samaritans, starring David Faustino.
