With a Konkona Sen Sharma and Manoj Bajpayee starrer and a Zack Snyder directorial, Netflix's line-up for 2024 looks very exciting.
Netflix's 2024 lineup
As we move towards the end of 2023, the anticipation for what lies ahead in the cinematic world is immense. All the studios are busy preparing their calendars and lineups. The leading streaming giant Netflix is also in the race and has introduced its slate for 2024. The lineup for next year is fascinating, with interesting stories and great names endorsing them.
So far, Netflix has announced many future titles and even shared the first look for some. Sanjay Leela Bhansali has announced his magnum opus, Heeramandi, a period series with an ensemble cast. The first look for Imtiaz Ali’s Amar Singh Chamkila took the internet by storm. But what is surprising is that Heeramandi is not on the Netflix 2024 lineup, which means that we might have to wait much longer to watch it.
Curious to know what is on the list? Let’s take a look at what Netflix has to offer in 2024...
