Netflix also landed ChuckFringe and The West Wing.

The companies say that in addition to these eight shows, Warner Bros may also make available “potential future shows.”

Warner reserved the right to sell the programs into traditional syndication and on a catch-up basis for recently aired episodes, but Netflix has exclusive rights to subscription streaming.

Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos calls it an “unprecedented agreement” that “is making the production economics right for the continued creation of the kind of compelling serialized dramas and thrillers that our members love.”

Warner Bros Television Group President Bruce Rosenblum says that the agreement recognizes that subscription VOD “has become an important window for our serialized dramas,” especially for viewers who want to catch up with a series. “We continue to adapt our business models to include SVOD when it makes sense for the long-term value of each show and are thrilled to have Netflix as one of our distribution partners.”

Warner Bros licensed series including The Vampire DiariesFringe and Pretty Little Liars to Netflix’s Canadian service back in November.
