Netflix will release a spinoff of popular drama The Story of Yanxi Palace on December 31 here. Yanxi Palace: Princess Adventures 金枝玉叶 follows the daughter of Wei Yingluo and the Emperor Qianlong, the seventh Princess Zhaohua played by Wang Herun, in her efforts to win the heart of the son Erqing (played by Wang Yizhe) while she fights the vendetta against her family.
Within minutes of The Untamed airing, historical suspense drama The Longest Day in Chang’an 长安十二时辰 released twelve episodes without any warning. You can watch it here (update: now region-blocked; update 2: it will be up on Amazon, Youtube and Viki sometimes in July). Only the first four episodes are available for non-VIP members. I’m not sure when/if the rest will be available for non-VIP members.
The Story of Minglan stars Zhao Liying (Our Glamorous Time) as Minglan, the seemingly naive sixth daughter of the Sheng family, Feng Shaofeng (Detective Dee) as her husband-to-be and Zhu Yilong (Guardian) as the heroine’s first love. [Extended Synopsis / Main Characters]
The 73 episode drama airs 2 episodes every Sunday to Thursday and 1 episode on Fridays and Saturdays on Hunan TV / Netdrama.

Lei Jiayin plays a former officer turned prisoner on death row who is hired by Yi Yangqianxi to find the culprit behind a terror plot within 24 hours. [Extended Synopsis]
