Netflix is anteing up with new content, unleashing a torrent of programming news covering a wide range of genres, including the news that Jennifer Garner — her voice, at least — will be a part of the animated preschooler series “Llama Llama.”

The Beatles are a big part of the new programming, with the animated series “Beat Bugs,” built around classic Beatles songs, reportedly set to stream Aug. 3, with a second season also in the pipeline. The program includes Beatles covers by Pink, Regina Spektor, Of Monsters and Men, The Shins and Sia, among many others. (You can see some of Eddie Vedder’s “Magical Mystery Tour” below.)

The streamer announced that “Chelsea,” Lady Dynamite” and “Real Rob” will all return for second seasons.
