In November 2018, 58% of Netflix’s New Shows & Movies Are Non-Netflix Originals (For The First Time in Months)

For the first time in months, less than half of Netflix’s new movies and TV shows will be Netflix originals in November 2018. This time only 42% of the new movies and TV shows are Netflix originals, down from 55% in October 2018.

This is a bit of a surprise because in September 2016, Netflix announced that they planned to make half of their catalog Netflix original movies and TV shows.

“It will take us a couple more years” to hit that target, Netflix CFO David Wells said back in 2016. “We’re a third to halfway to where we want to be. … We’ve got a ways to go” as the company looks for “a mixture of production models”—though not sports or ad-supported offerings.

The question now is will this be the start of a long-term trend of Netflix adding more non-Netflix originals or a short-term blip. Netflix seems dedicated to double down on original content. We will have to wait for their next move to see if the future is Netflix originals or a more balanced lineup.
