When Anne Franks first came to Netflix in 2009, it was a major departure for the streaming service.
She was known as a groundbreaking filmmaker whose debut feature, a documentary on the Japanese “Cats,” won a Best Documentary Oscar in 2010.
But with Netflix, Franks has largely stayed out of the spotlight.
Instead, her work has been focused on a series of TV shows, including “Bamboo House,” which debuted in 2015 and has since been renewed for a second season.
Netflix also announced a new “Big Short” movie about the 2008 financial crisis, which Franks co-wrote.
Now, the “Chips” star is returning to Netflix for another season.
“The Cats” has been renewed twice in its current run, and this season will mark the third time it’s been renewed.
Netflix said it plans to make all of its content available on the streaming platform.
It’s the latest sign that Netflix is looking to add more original content to its catalog.
“I feel very honored to be back on Netflix and I’m grateful to have the opportunity to continue to work with so many great talent to make my films accessible to the public,” Franks said in a statement.
