Sarandos said: "What happened in the first part of this year was that a lot of the projects that we'd hoped to come out earlier did get pushed because of the post-production delays and Covid delays. 

"And we think we'll get back to a much steadier state in the back half of the year, certainly in Q4 where we have the returning seasons of some of our most popular shows like The Witcher and You and Cobra Kai.

"As well as some big tentpole movies that came to market a little slower than we'd hoped like Red Notice and Escape From Spiderhead."
