Shondaland is ready to take over everyone’s Netflix and chill sessions.

Last year, Shonda Rhimes signed an exclusive deal with Netflix to produce shows for the streaming site. So far, she has eight new projects in the works.

“I wanted the new Shondaland to be a place where we expand the types of stories we tell, where my fellow talented creatives could thrive and make their best work and where we as a team come to the office each day filled with excitement,” Rhimes said in a press release.

So what does Rhimes exactly have in store for viewers? Here’s the eight projects Shondaland is currently working on:

Untitled Shonda Rhimes Project — Rhimes will be executive producing a series surrounding an article from The Cut called “How Anna Delvey Tricked New York’s Party People”

Untitled Bridgerton Project — Based on Julia Quinn’s novels that follow the romantic lives of the Bridgerton family in London’s high society.
