Among the new shows and renewed ones scheduled to release on Netflix next month, the first one to debut is animated series "Kong: King of the Apes" that will air April 15.

According to Bloody Disgusting, the synopsis of the series reads:

"Set in 2050, Kong is still the strongest creature ever born with many human traits that make him the ultimate iconic hero. In 'Kong,' the future looks bright for San Francisco's Alcatraz Island since its transformation into the most impressive Natural History and Marine Preserve on the planet."

"But when the star attraction suddenly goes ape and Kong becomes public enemy number one, the villain that framed him is free to unleash an army of gigantic robotic dinosaurs on the unsuspecting world. Ironically, Kong is the only force formidable enough to stop these super-powered dinosaurs and the evil genius manipulating them."

"However, Kong is now the world's most hunted fugitive. Fortunately, there are three young humans who know the truth and are willing to risk their lives to help Kong evade capture, while he battles to save humankind."

The series is being produced by Avi Arad, who has produced several Marvel movies based on the superheroes from Marvel comic books.

Besides "Kong," other series that Netflix will be coming out with next season are second season of Marvel's "Jessica Jones" and highly anticipated series "Black Mirror."

"Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" Season 2, "Talking for Clapping," "Cuckoo," and "Belgica" will also debut on Netflix April 15 along with Stanley Kubrick's classic movies "2001: A Space Odyssey" and "A Clockwork Orange."
