There's a wellspring of returning original series next month, including the sophomore seasons of Sense8 and Master of None, among others. Also included in the library is a fair share of titles amok with the blood of independent cinema, for instance LoveTrue, a mesmerizing cinematic essay on the different facets of love.

Speaking of Love, Gaspar Noé's Love is also coming to Netflix next month, and for those of you who've seen Noé's raunchy and electric exploration of lust, sex, and desire, then you're welcome to give it another viewing, if so you wish.

In other Netflix related news, the video streaming service just recently hit a total of 100 million subscribers globally, proving the company's projections were accurate. The figure is a groundbreaking success for the platform, because it does not only spell success for Netflix against its competitors first and foremost, but it also signals this era's preference for the video-streaming platform over traditional cable, broadcast television, and other premium video services.
