Netflix is dipping its toes into talk shows!
After much speculation, the rumors are true. Chelsea Handler is leaving the E! Network for Netflix.
The network announced that Handler will host a late night style talk show host.
Up until now, Netflix has only streamed original series in their entirety, not talks shows on a day-by-day basis. This new platform might have been what attracted Handler to the network. She hosted Chelsea Lately on E! news for seven years, but announced her resignation this year admitting she needed something fresh.
According to the NYTimes, Karen Barragan, a Netflix spokesperson, explained that there wasn’t a scheduling plan for the show yet, but that it would be a “topical talk show” that would not follow the typical Netflix platform of posting all episodes at once.
The currently-untitled show will “feature an updated format that still encompasses Chelsea’s unfiltered opinions on topical entertainment and cultural issues, as well as her signature guest interviews,” Netflix said.
In a statement released by Handler she explains, “If I was going to continue working in this industry, I knew I had to do something outside the box to keep myself interested,” Handler said in a statement. “I wanted to sit with the cool kids at lunch so I approached Netflix to make sure they were as cool as I thought they were, and when I confirmed my suspicions, like with any other future lover, I made my move. I’m more excited than I’ve been in awhile, and the team at Netflix is the most forward thinking, alert group I’ve sat down with in ages. No offense to the Shahs Of Sunset.”
Unfortunately for Handler fans, they’ll have to wait a little before they can start tuning into her new show. Netflix announced early 2016 as the date for the talk show to start streaming.
But no worries. Starting Oct. 10, Netflix will air Handler’s “Uganda Be Kidding” stand-up comedy as a special. They have also signed on for four docu-comedy specials to air right after.
It seems like becoming the only female late night host in a world dominated by men has been successful for Handler. This new deal with Netflix pretty much sets her up as the face of Netflix Talk Shows, a new medium they I’m sure they will explore a lot more with the popularity of late night talk shows on the rise. With this move Netflix has really upped its game and revolutionized the future of late night talk shows.
Handler did not end this on a good note with the E! Network, bashing them on a recent interview with The Howard Stern Show. She called the network a failure and “a sad, sad, place to live.” E!’s response? Of course that Handlers ratings were dropping steadily and the end of Chelsea Lately was a beneficial move for both parties. We might never know the truth and we don’t care. We now have more reasons to keep our Netflix subscription! As long as we have Chelsea, we’re good!
The final Chelsea Lately episode will air August 26 on E!

‘Selena: The Series’ Trailer Documents Her Rise to Fame – Watch It Now
Lights, camera, action, and a little bit of bidi bidi bom bom!
The wait for Netflix’s Selena Quintanilla-Pérez bio-series titled Selena: The Series is finally over.
The streamer released the full-length trailer for the series. Since it will be split into two parts (six episodes each), part 1 will drop on Friday, December 4.
Here’s the synopsis for the show: “Before she became the Queen of Tejano music, Selena Quintanilla (played by Christian Serratos) was a young girl from Texas with big dreams and an even bigger voice. The series explores her journey from singing small gigs to becoming the most successful female Latin artist of all time — and the years of hard work and sacrifice the Quintanilla family navigated together.”
Selena’s life was tragically cut short at 23, however, the series focuses on her rise to fame and how it affected her life and her family dynamic.
CraveYouTV chatted with Madison Taylor Baez, who plays young Selena, earlier this year. Check out the interview right HERE!
Ricardo Chavira (Desperate Housewives), Gabriel Chavarria (The Purge), Noemi Gonzalez (The Young and the Restless), and Seidy Lopez (Training Day) will be starring as the rest of the Quintanilla family.
‘Saved by the Bell’ Revival Reunites Zack, Kelly, A.C. and Jessie – Watch the Trailer
Not all high school friendships are forever, but the ones made at Bayside High are!
Peacock dropped the full-length trailer for the highly-anticipated “Saved by the Bell” revival which finds the gang back together!
We’ve seen A.C. Slater (Mario Lopez) and Jessie Spano (Elizabeth Berkley Lauren) reprise their roles in previous teasers, but this is the first time fans are getting a glimpse at Mark-Paul Gosselaar as Governor Zack Morris and Tiffani Thiessen as California’s First Lady, Kelly Kapowski-Morris. High school sweethearts, am I right?
The foursome reunites in the clip to perform the Zack Attack classic “Friends Forever.” We also see them spend time at The Max and Zack bond with his son, Mac.
The series premieres on Wednesday, November 25.
The revival finds Zack as the California mayor who gets into some hot water for closing low-income schools and sending them to other schools in the state like Bayside High. This gives the privileged students including his son, Mac, and Jessie’s son, Jamie, a reality check.
‘Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’ Conjures Up Fourth and Final Season Release Date and Teaser – Watch Now!
We know what we’re going to be doing when the clock strikes midnight!
The one good thing to come out of 2020 is that the fourth and final installment of Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina will finally debut.
The final eight episodes will arrive on Thursday, December 31.
Since fans have to wait a few months, the streaming giant also released a teaser trailer in which Sabrina Spellman (Kiernan Shipka) raises the spirits on New Years Eve rather than a glass of champagne!
Ambrose (Chase Perdomo) ominously warns: “We have never faced a peril such as this — there is another war brewing.”
That’s concerning because they’ve faced a lot of evil — including Lucifer — in the show’s three-season run.
Here’s the official synopsis: “Over the course of Part 4’s eight episodes, The Eldritch Terrors will descend upon Greendale. The coven must fight each terrifying threat one by one (The Weird, The Returned, The Darkness, to name a few), all leading up to… The Void, which is the End of All Things. As the witches wage war, with the help of The Fright Club, Nick begins to slowly earn his way back into Sabrina’s heart, but will it be too late?”
Expect to see more familiar faces including Roz (Jaz Sinclair), Harvey (Ross Lynch), Aunt Hilda (Lucy Davis), and Aunt Zelda (Miranda Otto), to name a few.
Are you ready for the beginning of the end?
