‘Stranger Things,’ ‘Sweet Magnolias,’ ‘The Lincoln Lawyer’ Among 10 Netflix Shows Not Returning Until 2025

Netflix has recently revealed its lineup of TV series set to release new seasons in 2024, and some notable titles are missing due to delays caused by the writers and actors strikes. 10 popular Netflix shows won’t be returning until 2025.

One significant absence is “Stranger Things,” which, despite commencing production for its fifth and final season in January, won’t hit screens until 2025. The extended hiatus, spanning three years between Seasons 3 and 4 and Seasons 4 and 5, is attributed to the intricate VFX work involved and the impact of the pandemic on previous seasons.

Similarly affected is “Wednesday,” the series that overtook “Stranger Things” as Netflix’s most popular. Season 2 is slated to start production in Ireland in late April, causing a delay in its release. Another casualty is the breakout 2023 drama “One Piece,” which is yet to begin filming its second season.

Other series absent from the 2024 lineup include female-driven favorites “Sweet Magnolias,” along with ratings hits “Ginny & Georgia” and “Virgin River.” External factors, such as weather conditions affecting the filming of “Virgin River” in Vancouver for Season 6, contribute to these delays.

Additional omissions comprise “The Lincoln Lawyer,” set for Season 3, and three sophomore series: “The Watcher,” “XO Kitty,” and “The Recruit.”

On a positive note, several popular Netflix scripted shows are confirmed to return in 2024, including “Squid Game,” “Bridgerton,” “The Night Agent,” “Cobra Kai,” “Emily In Paris,” and “The Diplomat.”

The extended timeline for the return of these series is attributed to the aftermath of the Writers Guild of America and SAG-AFTRA strikes in 2023, impacting production schedules and resulting in a postponement of some beloved Netflix shows until 2025. Despite the anticipation, viewers will have to wait patiently as their favorite series navigate challenges in production and scheduling.
