Half of Netflix will soon be original content, exec says

If "Stranger Things" is anything to go by, half your Netflix library will soon be original.

Things are getting stranger.

It's been three years since Netflix started creating original programming, birthing beloved shows like "House of Cards", "Daredevil" and, more recently, "Stranger Things."

It appears that the company is just getting started. Netflix aims to have 50 percent of its content be original programming, Chief Financial Officer David Wells said Tuesday at the Goldman Sachs' Communacopia conference, according to Variety.

Many of Netflix's shows have become mainstream hits. "Stranger Things" briefly took over the Emmys on Sunday, while shows like "Master of None" and "House of Cards" have received their share of awards and accolades. "Bojack Horseman's" second and third seasons both have a rare 100 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

The most successful movie produced for the service, you'll of course be happy to know, is Adam Sandler's "The Ridiculous 6."
