2015 Netflix Releases

Netflix LogoAll the Dates That Are Fit to Print

So here you have it. DVD release dates for all of 2015 as they become available (you can find all of 2011 here,  all of 2012 here, all of 2013 here and all of 2014 here.  I’ll add to it every week as information becomes available. One Stop Shopping for Netflix Release Dates. Gotta love it.  I’m including information about Instant Streaming availability when I have it. Almost everything is available on DVD before it becomes available through instant streaming.  Initial release dates are for DVD unless otherwise noted. Netflix does rotate its streamed content, so something that is streaming when I add it may be on streaming hiatus at some later date.  But generally, if it was streaming once, it will stream again.  With no further ado, fire up your DVD player (or your Roku), and here are your release dates!

Overview

What is Netflix? Should you use it?

Netflix is an online DVD rental service.  Instead of going to the local video store, you can have movies of your choice sent to you via the US mail.  It really is that simple.  Read on to see if it’s for you.

The Past

Originally, Netflix was a DVD only operation.  You chose the movies you wanted to watch from their online catalogue,Netflix Logo put them on your list and they would send them to you.  You could have as many as you wanted at a time (prices increased as the number increased) and you could keep them as long as you wanted.  Send one back and the next one on your list (called your queue) would be sent to you.  New movies would release on Netflix as soon as they released on DVD.

When we started, years ago, it took about 4 days to turn around a movie.  We had a 3 movie per month service plan and there were something like 11,000 movies in the Netflix catalogue.  It was heaven at a time when trying to rent a new release, a documentary or an independent film at a video store was next to impossible and late fees were omnipresent.

Times changed and Netflix changed with them.

The Present

Our original Netflix account seems quaint now.  So does the dial-up connection we used to manage it.  But the core appeal remains – I get movies I choose delivered to my mailbox, take as long as I want to watch them and drop them back in the mail (no postage needed).  A new one appears now in about 2 days.  The catalogue is now unimaginably huge – my queue is always enormous.  User interface on the site itself is super simple – you can browse movies, rate them, get recommendations, complain and report damaged and missing discs as well as manage your own account.

And there are so many more options now.  You can have DVD plans up to 8 at a time, you can have limited plans for as little as $5 a month, and the biggest change – you can now get additional content streamed to any of a couple hundred different devices.  It’s called Netflix Instant Streaming.

Netflix Instant Streaming

When this service began, you could stream movies to your computer via the Netflix site.  There were a few thousand available, most of them sucked.  We never used it – in addition to having little interest in the available content, we had no desire to watch movies on our computer.

But now, with the rise of YouTube and Hulu and any number of other services that stream video content from the internet, Netflix has upped their game.  Their instant catalogue has grown to include many thousands of movies and TV shows (including the first Netflix original series – 2013’s House of Cards, now joined by several more).  Best of all, you can stream through over 100 different devices (including computer to TV if you can reach with an HDMI cable).  We use either our Xbox 360 or our Roku Netflix Player to stream movies directly to our TV.  So in addition to the DVDs we get, we also have access to thousands of titles streamed free.

As streaming becomes more and more dominant with consumers, Netflix has acquired rights to more and more content.  One major acquisition involved streaming new releases before they go to pay TV.

We’re discovering now, in 2014,  that about 25-30% or so of the movies and TV that we want to get from Netflix is available through Netflix Instant Streaming.  Most of the movies are still either not new or are of limited general interest.  But a surprising number of little indie gems show up there.  And the TV is fabulous – we’ll often get a season the summer after it airs and be caught up for the fall premiere.  We’ve seen any number of movies and TV series via streaming on which we never would have used a DVD rental.  Some of them have been great.  Some have also sucked.  But that’s the world of movies, right?

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

I’m sure this seems like nothing more than a commercial for Netflix.  Let me assure you – I do not work for them.  And they have plenty of problems.  The granddaddy of all current problems is the horrid delay imposed upon Netflix by most of the major movie studios.  This problem is so big and pisses me off so bad that it gets its very own section here on Movie Rewind.  Just hop over one tab.

But let’s start with a simple rundown of the good:

  • Movies and TV on DVD delivered to your mailbox
  • Huge DVD and Instant Streaming catalogue from which to choose
  • Large number of service options
  • Excellent user interface on the site
  • 2 day DVD turnover
  • My history with them is spotless in terms of customer service

And move straight on to the bad:

  • 28 day delay for new releases
  • Not everyone is fortunate enough to have a 2 day turn around
  • DVD extras often not included on rental discs
  • No extras on streamed content
  • No captions available on streamed content (update: as of 2013, captions have become available for most content)
  • Streamed content requires the purchase of a (sometimes expensive) device in order to be truly watchable
  • Streamed content varies in picture quality (update: 2014 – most of the picture quality issues seem to have been resolved)

And the downright ugly:

  • There is no easy way to figure out when things will become available for either rental or streaming on Netflix

My Gift to You

We here at Movie Rewind are annoyed by the lack of easy access to Netflix release dates.  So I am going to provide them.  Tab over and you will find Netflix release dates for as many newly released movies and TV series as I can find, starting with January 1, 2014 (you can find the 2014 release dates here 2013 release dates here, the 2012 release dates here and the  2011 release dates here).  I will not be including old movies new to DVD or to Netflix – only new releases. When I find out that they are streaming, I’ll include that as well.

I love Netflix and have no intention of leaving them for another service or abandoning my disc subscription.  But nothing is perfect.  It’s my job to bitch about the problems I can’t control (I’m looking at you, 28 day delay) and provide solutions for the ones I can.  I love my job.

Release Delays

I hate you, 28 day delay

This is not the first time I’ve bitched about the 28 day release delay imposed on Netflix by many of the major movie studios.  But for those of you new to this particular party, I’ll go over the basics.

Beginning in January, 2010, Netflix customers (aka: ME) started noticing that some newly released DVDs were not being released by Netflix.  Hmmmm.  “What’s the deal?” the customers wondered.  Maybe just a glitch, an anomaly, an oversight.  WRONG!  It turned out that Warner Bros. and Netflix had reached a deal in which Netflix would delay release of new movies for 28 days after they became available for purchase, presumably to give people incentive to buy the DVD rather than wait to rent.  Fox and Universal soon followed suit, as did Paramount, even though their own internal study showed that delaying rental release did not increase DVD sales.

I have no idea, none at all, what Netflix gets out of this “agreement”.  I can only assume that it was forced down their throats with the threat of withdrawal of content altogether.

Image of Calendar

Yeah, I get that the studios want more people to buy DVDs.  But I want to see concrete proof that delaying rentals achieves that.  I think that it does not – all it does is prove to someone at the studio that they have a bigger virtual penis and can force down Netflix (and Redbox – they’re affected as well) with their big powerful bully tactics.  Personally, it makes me committed to never, ever buying another DVD from one of these studios.   If I didn’t care enough to see a movie in the theater, I sure as hell don’t care enough to spend twice the price buying the stupid thing.  As I’ve pointed out before, buyers and renters are two different species and never the twain shall meet.  Or at least not very often.

Adding insult to injury, Blockbuster began running ads on TV during the 2010 holiday season boasting about how they had new releases for rent as soon as they were available for purchase.  They went so far as to specifically take a swipe at Netflix for the idiot 28 day delay.  Talk about rubbing salt in a wound.  I would venture to guess that the only reason Blockbuster had not, to that point, been forced to accept the same crappy delay “deal” as Netflix and Redbox is that everyone assumed they would be out of business by then.  Keep boasting, Blockbuster – if you look even marginally viable as a company, the big virtual penis will smack you down, too.  Oh, look, now that it’s 2014, Blockbuster is out of business.  RIP, Braggy McBraggersons.

The fallout from the 28 day delay is not just my ire (powerful though that might be).  People now have no idea when the movies they want will become available on Netflix.  It used to be easy – when it was released on DVD, it was released on Netflix.  But now there’s usually a delay – but it isn’t always 28 days.  Sometimes it’s shorter, sometimes it’s longer, sometimes there is no delay.  Who keeps track of which studios release which movies?  I know I don’t.  Even if I did, I don’t know anymore how many of them are enforcing the delay and there’s no way of knowing if they’ll enforce it on any particular movie.  BAH!!

But now you can know.  Because I’m going to tell you.  Tab over and you’ll find Netflix release dates beginning January 1, 2014.  I love you all just that much.  Almost as much as I hate that damn 28 day delay.

  1. Netflix streaming only available via very expensive streaming devices? Roku boxes can be had for $49. That’s not very expensive in my book. I’d spend more than that to take my family of four to the movie theater (ticket prices are *ridiculous*!)

  2. Thanks for stopping to comment, Jordan. These are all 2013 release dates – I never mix years. Come January I will move these to their own separate page and start fresh here. So everything you see here is 2013.

  3. half the shows on this release date thing are not even on netflix yet. Not on the date they say atleast. Not on disc or streaming. I need more accuracy!!!!

  4. Hi and thanks for commenting. Sorry you aren’t finding what you’re looking for. The dates here are those given by Netflix – you’ll note that I’ve gone ahead in the dating so you know what is coming up in the next few weeks so you can put it on your queue. Sometimes a movie becomes available to stream for a limited time, often they will stream again at some point. Sometimes not – those are things I can’t keep track of. When I add something to the streaming availability it is with the understanding that Netflix streaming is a constantly evolving thing.

    Is there something in particular that you noticed was in error? I’m happy to fix anything that is incorrect. I want you all to have the most accurate information I can provide!

  5. Are these Canadian release dates? Homeland season 2 is not on my device but it says it was supposed to be released yesterday.

  6. Homeland Season 2 was released to Netflix on Tuesday, September 10 – it’s in my queue as it should be.Are you looking for a Canadian release date? I do not have access to those, these are all US release dates. If you’re in the US, double check – it should be there.

  7. It was released yesterday in the US – I don’t have access to Canadian release dates and I don’t know how much difference there is. I’m sorry I can’t provide you with that information!

  8. It’s there! Double check the listing in Netflix – it’s only available on disc (I don’t think HBO shows usually stream, ever).

  9. Hi Liz,

    Thanks for commenting! Supernatural came out on disc on September 10th and will go to Instant Streaming on October 3rd!

    Sue

  10. Hi Adam,

    Season 7 is already out on disc – it will be available on Instant Streaming on October 1st. Soon you will have your Liz Lemon!

  11. So excited about Bones! I binge-watched 1-7 and have been wondering when 8 was coming out. Thank you for the info! I even checked iTunes to see how much it would cost.

    Also give Nashville a try! I love it but I am a country girl, so it’s right up my alley.

  12. Hi Leslie,

    Thanks for commenting! We love Bones – it’s gross, but we love it. Don’t buy it quite yet though – it’s going to be streaming October 8th!

    I like Connie Briton a lot, so I’m definitely thinking of adding Nashville to the queue!

  13. Hi Kyle. So far it looks like there’s no scheduled release date for The Neighbors on either disc or streaming. I’ll keep a watch out though!

  14. So far none of the seasons of Chuck have been released to streaming. There are actually a lot of shows like that. Maybe after it’s been off the air for a few more years?

  15. I’m seeing Season 2 as available on disc – it doesn’t look like either season is going to stream, though. If you can stream other content from Netflix with your system, you don’t need anything different for a different show. Some shows just remain available only on disc, forever. Which is sad.

  16. When will Glee season 4 be avaliable for instant streaming. I see that its avaliable October 1st for DVD I am assuming considering it doesnt say avaliable for instant streaming on … date.
    With that being said how long is it normally before things wil be avaliable for instant streaming once it comes out on dvd through netflix?

  17. Hi Krittle. No streaming date has been announced (yet) but I wouldn’t be too surprised if it takes a while since the DVD date was pushed back. There doesn’t seem to be much rhyme or reason to what streams quickly, what takes forever and what never streams. At least, since past seasons have gone to streaming, it seems more than likely that it *will* stream at some point. They just haven’t announced when quite yet. I’ll keep you posted, though!

  18. Do you have any idea when season 2 of “Hart of Dixie” coming to Netflix and season 8 “Supernatural”?

  19. Hi your site said that glee season 4 would be added today, but I just got on and it wasn’t on there? So when will it be on there?

  20. It says that Glee season 4 was supposed to come out 4 days ago… any word on why that was moved back again?

  21. Hey so thank you so much for showing that how I met your mother season 8 was coming out oct.1st; that gave me something to look forward to and be super excited about!however I am more then a little disappointed that it is now oct.3 and still glee season 4 has not been posted as you had said it would on oct.1..do you know why this is or when the real release date will be?i’m dying for it!thanks! -Meagan

  22. Season 2 of Hart of Dixie is out on Instant Streaming now and will be available on disc on October 15th. Season 8 of Supernatural is out now on both disc and streaming. Have fun watching!

  23. It became available on disc on October 1st. So far there’s no information on a date for Instant Streaming, but I’ll definitely keep you updated!

  24. Hi Kate – I’m so glad you like the page! I do love my Netflix. I’m seeing all sorts of interesting things as far as Dark Shadows. They appear to have 6 “volumes” and 26 (!) “collections”. The first 4 collections that you noted are all streaming, but that appears to be it. There is a LOT more available on disc – it looks like only volume 3 and collection 15 are not out on disc. I’m guessing that the volumes are probably season one, the collections make up the later seasons. There isn’t any info available on when anything else might go to streaming, sadly. Right now you can add a disc plan to your streaming for an additional $7.99 a month (that’s for one disc out at a time, no monthly limit – 2 discs at a time is $11.99). Depending on how fast you watch them, that might be much cheaper than buying the set!

  25. There’s no info posted yet for Flashpoint Season 5’s Instant Streaming date. Since the other 4 seasons are streaming hopefully it won’t be too long!

  26. I’ve not heard good things. That makes me sad, but there are so many other things to watch!

  27. It’s out only on disc. No information yet on Instant Streaming dates. I’ll keep you all posted!

  28. It is out, but only on disc at this point. There’s no info on the Instant Streaming date, but I’ll be keeping a close eye out! Thanks for stopping to comment Meagan!

  29. As far as I can tell, none of the seasons of Chuck have information on Instant Streaming release dates, only disc. Sorry. :(

  30. im very impatient when does season 4 of glee come out on netflix ive heard different answers do you have an exact answer? its past october 1st when does it come out?????

  31. Seasons 13-14 of SVU are available now on disc – no info on streaming. Being Human season 3 isn’t even out on disc yet – hopefully once it is, streaming will follow shortly.

  32. I don’t know yet – there’s no information out except for disc. The first season streamed though, so it’s a safe bet that season 2 will at some point. I’ll keep you posted!

  33. Season 4 is out now on disc – no word yet on a streaming date. Season 5 just started on TV, so it won’t be out for awhile!

  34. That would be great! No info here yet, but I’ll keep an eye out. Usually I’ll see it about a month beforehand.

  35. Season 3 is only broadcasting right now – it is very unlikely to come out at all before the end of the season. I’ll let you know when it’s on its way!

  36. Season 4 just started its broadcast run on SyFy, so won’t be available until the end of the season. I’ll keep an eye out and let you know when!

  37. Please can someone tell me when Season 4 of White Collar will be released on Netflix. The dvd’s are out and season 5 has started.

  38. You can get it on disc from Netflix, but there still isn’t an announced date for Instant Streaming. I’m keeping an eye out – I’ll let you know!

  39. Right now the disc release is showing up for sometime in November (no dates announced), with no information on Streaming. I’ll keep you posted!

  40. Ok.. I use the USA version of Netflix.. Using the unblock us service.. but can’t see Homeland.. It says its unavailable… Is it just me or is it not available any longer on the USA Netflix? Thanks in advance!

  41. I’m seeing it as available on disc from the US. Could it be the service you’re using? Since it’s still available here, keep checking!

  42. Hi! I have been watching Revenge on Netflix for the past month and suddenly the series are not there anymore. Any ideas why is that happening? I am midway through season 2 and I do not know where to keep watching it. Thanks a lot,

  43. I am able to pull up all of season 1 and 2 on Instant Streaming, so I’m not sure where your troubles are coming from. If you’re watching on your TV, try going in through your computer and re-adding the series to your Watch Instantly queue. I’ve had a couple of things we were in the middle of watching disappear from our “recently watched” section and we had to re-queue them. Let me know if that works!

  44. So far it isn’t out at all on either disc or streaming – but you are able to save it. So hopefully that means they do intend to carry it. I’ll keep an eye out for it for you!

  45. I don’t know why this is happening to people! It’s showing for me both on my computer and on the TV through the Roku – both full seasons. Are you in the US?

  46. im noticing that many of my favorite shows that have been on netflix streaming are being cut or having their episodes numbers and seasons cut way back. I recently noticed that law & order SVU and criminal intent lost all the early seasons and that the “that 70’s show” was removed altogether. whats going on? is it time to bail on netflix?

  47. I’m just guessing, but I think it’s contract issues and decisions about what content is worth the current asking price. They’ve always shuffled streamed content, i would assume this is more of the same. They seem to add more than they remove, so I’m sticking in.

  48. No indication right now, but the others are streaming, so hopefully this one will as well. I’ll keep you posted on the main list when I find out!

  49. It’s already out on disc, but it isn’t showing a streaming date at the moment. It’s really hard to predict with movies – some of them never stream. But I’ll keep an eye out!

  50. So far there’s no date for streaming for season 4. But since seasons 1-3 did eventually stream, it’s a good bet 4 will, too. I’ve got my eye on it – I’ll keep you posted!

  51. George tells me:

    Amazon instant prime video has the first half of the season free. You can buy the others at two bucks each.

  52. There’s no information yet – season 4 is still running on TV though. Try Hulu, Syfy or DVR the reruns.

  53. Awesome. As a late-comer to Chuck i only saw the last two broadcast seasons…it’ll be fun diving back into the early seasons now :)

  54. I haven’t seen any of it! I love being able to binge on a whole series – this is on my instant queue now.

  55. Movies are really tricky. Some never stream. Indies are more likely than big budget ones, but the pattern is never reliable. This one has been out on DVD for awhile, was a big budget but not really a critical success, so it may well stream at some point – I really have no idea. I’ll watch for it, but it’s a complete crap shoot undoubtedly involving licensing, contracts and a whole lot of other nebulous variables.

  56. They don’t have it listed as a series, just a movie. A lot of his stuff either doesn’t stream or takes quite a long time from DVD release to streaming release.

  57. Uhhh….no. I didn’t lie. It came out on disc a long time ago, and if you actually look at the post – where all the dates are – you’ll see that I have it clearly stated (and have for some time) that it will start streaming on November 30th. You’re welcome for posting the information you couldn’t even be bothered to actually read.

  58. Hi.sitting here in canada..hoping for season 4 of glee to start on streaming ..nothing yet and it dec 2 so i guess there is a difference with the us..thx tho :)

  59. Yeah, I don’t have access to Netflix Canada. Let me see if I can hunt up somebody who might know!

  60. Any news on White Collar Season 4 yet? Everywhere I look, it says it’ll be available for Instant Streaming on December 7th. Well, December 7th is here and everything that was scheduled to be released today for instant streaming has been released except for While Collar. Any news you can give me is much appreciated! Thank you.

  61. Does anyone have any information on White Collar Season 4 for Netflix? I’ve read this as saying it should be available for streaming as of December 7…but it isn’t as of yet. Just a delay or is it not likely to become available?

  62. I’m showing 16 episodes from season 4 streaming on both my computer and my Roku. Are you in the US? Sometimes Canadian dates are different.

  63. It’s out! Check the site or search using whatever streaming device you have. It’s available both on disc and streaming in the US.

  64. Why are movies like This Is The End and Pineapple Express aren’t on Netflix!! Seriously, Pineapple Express has been out since 2008 and it isn’t on Netflix! Please put either This is the End or Pineapple Express on Netflix! What am I paying $8 a month for!! Please reply!

  65. Well, first of all, I can’t put anything anywhere. I can only tell you what’s available, Both of those movies are available through Netflix if you have a disc subscription. As for why they aren’t on Instant Streaming – I don’t know. I can only guess that it’s contracts and licensing and all variety of other complexities that I can’t begin to understand. Some movies stream a month after they are released, others never do. I don’t have any way to predict when a particular film will stream. Sorry I can’t be more helpful on this one!

  66. No idea, sorry. All seasons are available on disc, but nothing is streaming and no dates are are available.

  67. That is an excellent question. Netflix shows that everything is streaming now – including seasons 7 and 8. I was able to pull up episodes from season 8 on my computer, but I have them in my DVD queue and they aren’t marked as streaming, even though they are. I guess the short answer is – they’re available now!

  68. I don’t understand why the release date are differents for Canadian. With all the illegal download that is going on now, I also don’t understand why the legal content is not accessible quicker. They could be an extra fee for a premium access let say; Pay a 1$ per episode to be able to watch them quicker. I am sure a lot of people would pay it and that would eliminate a lot of illegal downloading. Anyways, I just throwing ideas…. I am not sure it will change something. It’s just frustrating to watch a show and not be able to see the next season when you know it’s available.

  69. I have no idea why Canadian releases are sometimes different. But I think that Netflix is stuck as far as when they can make legal content available. For TV series, their DVD rental date is almost always the same as the DVD sale availability, but streaming takes longer. I assume it’s part of the contracts they have with various studios. You’re right, but it’s the studios that need to hear your message.

  70. Would you happen to know whwn season 3 of Scandal and Revenge would be available on Netflix streaming?

  71. Not yet – there’s no availability date for either DVD or streaming. But I’ll let you know when there is!

  72. When will Psych season 7 go on netflix? It said October 8th but it way past that date now and it’s still not on there.

  73. Season 7 is available now but only on DVD – it hasn’t gone to streaming yet. I keep checking every week for a streaming date and will put it in the main list of release dates when it comes out!

  74. Is there any new news on psych season 7, and so I can stop bothering you about, what website should I go to check?

  75. Still no news, though I still think it will stream pretty soon (based on the other seasons). Not sure why the delay this time. The only place I know of that you can find it is on the Netflix site itself – and I’ll post it as soon as I find out. I update this list once a week and will definitely be sure to put it right at the top when it comes out!

  76. Since it’s the current season, I suspect it’s going to be a while. No date information is available yet.

  77. It surely is – I watched it last night! It isn’t streaming, but is available on DVD.

  78. We’re still waiting for it to be available on instant streaming (no date has been posted yet). You can get it now if you have a DVD subscription.

  79. It’s the most recent season – and I don’t think it’s over yet. So it’s going to be a while.

  80. Hi, do you have any idea when Revenge season 3 will be added to Netflix? Also season 4 and 5 of Drop Dead Diva

  81. Good questions! I think it’s going to be a while for Revenge. It’s still running on the network, so my guess is that it won’t start streaming until late summer or early fall. But that’s just a guess! Sometimes thing become available more quickly.

    I checked Drop Dead Diva and it looks like Season 4 is available on streaming (and DVD) now, and Season 5 isn’t out yet on either DVD or streaming. I’ll keep an eye out for it!

  82. I suspect it’s going to be quite a while. There’s no information at all on it yet, and they tend to wait until a while past the end of the season. My guess is late summer.

  83. I haven’t watched it yet! It’s on my list for the summer – I hope to catch up in time for the next season.

  84. No information yet on White Collar season 5 or Hart of Dixie season 3, on either DVD or streaming. I’ll keep an eye out for both!

  85. I see that season 3 of Scandal started streaming pretty quickly after the season ended….Any news on when the recent season of Grey’s Anatomy (season 10) will premiere on Netflix?

  86. It did – which was great! GA 10 comes out on DVD (for sale) on September 2nd. TV shows are often available on DVD through Netflix at the same time they come out for sale, but Instant Streaming is another beast altogether. But certainly not before fall. You can get the entire season on Amazon Instant now if you’re willing to pay for it.

  87. Speaking of “downright ugly” I can barely read the text on this article. Black text on a dark gray background with a white text shadow on the entire body text? Do your readers a favor and change this design.

  88. Good question. No dates have been announced yet, and it will be available on DVD before it comes to Instant Streaming. If I have to guess, I’d say late summer for the DVD, right before the new season for streaming.

  89. They dont stream many TV shows and movies very quickly, for instance, seasons 1-4 for the TV show “Glee” has been out, but it has taken over a year for season 5 to be on netflix, even though it is airing on TV. JUST GET CABLE!

  90. Glee season 5 isn’t on cable, either. Most Netflix users know there’s a lag time between the end of a season airing on TV and Netflix streaming (some TV shows never stream and are only available on DVD). To each his own when it comes to media consumption!

  91. nikita season 4 still not released yet for instant streaming but your site says it should have in May…please help

  92. That’s weird. It says it’s supposed to be streaming but it isn’t. And I’m pretty sure my daughter watched it. Let me keep an eye on it and see if it shows back up – it is available on DVD from Netflix, if that’s any help.

  93. When does the next season of Bones start streaming?
    &&
    When does season 5 of The Vampire Diaries start streaming?

  94. No word on streaming for either one. Vampire Diaries Season 5 is set to come out on DVD in September, Bones Season 9 is still listed as Unknown even for DVD. My guess for both is mid fall, a lot of networks start streaming seasons right before the new season begins to air.

  95. my kids are pokemon fans and were very happy it was added to the streaming library, is there any word as to the release schedule of new seasons and movies?

  96. Are you in Canada? They haven’t released any of the seasons for streaming here – maybe this is how they make up for your DVD release taking forever!

  97. Right now I’m showing Pokemon: Indigo League, Pokemon: Black & White (both series), Pokemon: White: Victini and Zekrom (movie), Pokemon: Black: Victini and Reshiram (movie), Pokemon the Movie: Kyrurem Vs. The Sword (movie) all as streaming. There are a lot more available on DVD as well. There doesn’t seem to be any information about additional seasons of the two series as of right now, but I’ll keep my eye out! My kid is also a big fan (and he’s 20 years old!)

  98. Does anyone know when Glee season 5 is out on Netflix? Or Revenge season 3? Please answer me if you know how to find out or already do know!<3

  99. Revenge Season 3 is coming out on DVD in August (no word on streaming), but no word yet on Glee. Their TV season starts a little later, so maybe in September?

  100. DVD will be released on Netflix in August. No word yet on streaming – I’ll keep you posted!

  101. It’s releasing on DVD in August – no exact date available yet. No streaming date yet, either.

  102. Neither one currently has a release date. But I’m guessing it will be shortly before their new seasons begin on TV – so maybe October? I’ll keep you posted!

  103. LOL, I know what you mean! We watch a truly staggering amount of Netflix in our house every day.

  104. New Girl is set to come out on DVD in September (no date available yet) and Parks & Rec will be out on DVD on August 19th.

  105. there’s a problem with the “September 2014″ part in your comment since, well, it hasn’t happened yet.

  106. Haha. True enough, my friend. But the basic set up remains the same – this list is for the current year. Come January it will roll over and be for next year. All previous years get their own pages with streaming updates.

  107. What the *&%*! I just finished 44 episodes of ‘REVENGE,’–the first two seasons…ending with a cliffhanger and there is NO season three?????? WHAT IS THAT ABOUT?

  108. Oooh, that hurts! But you don’t have too long to wait. Netflix will have season 3 on DVD on August 26th, which should give you time to catch all the way up before the 4th season starts on TV! (No word yet on streaming, if you don’t have a DVD subscription you might have to bit the bullet for a month and get one!)

  109. Thanks for taking the time to make this list. Do you know if this applies to netflix in the UK? I see you’ve got Castle S05 listed as coming soon, but in the UK S03 isn’t on netflix yet. Do you know where I can get more UK specific date? Thanks.

  110. I’m sorry to say that I do not have UK specific Netflix information. It seems like Netflix UK and Canada are sometimes on the same schedule as the US and sometimes not. I wish I could help more!

  111. I’ve been waiting for Switched at Birth Season 3 & Episode 12 to 21… When it will release in the Netflix?

  112. Yep, I live US in California. When it will release of switched at birth season 3 episode 12 to 21 on Netflix?

  113. Ah, I see it now – only the first half of that season has been released. Right now, the only information available is that those episodes are “coming soon”. I’m not sure what that means to Netflix. Maybe in the next month or so?

  114. It comes out on DVD on Netflix on September 2nd, no word on streaming. Some movies never do, sadly.

  115. September 9th on DVD, no word yet on streaming. Hopefully not too long after – I missed the whole season!

  116. Glee season 5, any estimated dates? Like after it comes out on disc how long does it take for it to come out on Netflix? I’m so confused! Help?

  117. A lot of people only use Netflix Streaming, but they also have DVD subscriptions – and the release dates for the two are generally different. First DVDs for rent, then later, streaming.

    TV shows are usually available on DVD through Netflix at the same time as the purchase release (not always – sometimes there’s a delay – but TV is more reliable than movies). There isn’t a date yet for the release of the DVDs for rent to Netflix subscribers who have a disc subscription for Glee season 5. If I had to guess, I would say early October for the DVDs.

    Instant Streaming, however, is very difficult to predict. The other seasons are all available on streaming so it’s a safe bet that season 5 will also stream at some point, but when that will happen is a mystery at this point. Hopefully it won’t be too long after the DVDs are available.

    I hope that helps! If not, feel free to ask further.

  118. when is season 2 rectify coming to netflix or the next new season of Harwood (sounds something like that)Groves?

  119. Do you mean Hemlock Grove? That one is already out! Season 2 is streaming right now. They start right where they left off – I wish I had watched a couple of the last episodes from the first season to refresh my memory.

    Rectify Season 1 is on Netflix and streaming – it looks like season2 is still airing on the Sundance Channel (no information on either discs or streaming). You can get the episodes for $1.99 each from Amazon – or watch them free on the official website!

  120. It is a completely addicting show! Season 9 should stream, since the others have, but I don’t know when. The DVDs will be available through Netflix on September 16th and it will probably be a while after that. You never can tell how long though – sometimes shows stream very quickly. I’ll let you know!

  121. Good point! When the series is still running, that is often true. It isn’t something you can always count on – but it’s definitely something to hope for!

  122. Revenge season 3 is out on netflix streaming now. And so is once upon a time but I don’t see it on your list

  123. Right you are! As is Haven, season 4. They snuck them by me – thanks for the tip, changes made to the list!!

  124. Criminal Minds seasons 1-9 are on netflix streaming now. Other than that, this is an awesome list and I will be checking on it now and then to get netflix updates!!

  125. Ah, that’s great! I love it when an entire series becomes available on streaming. So much binge potential! Thanks for stopping to comment and the tip – I’ve updated the list. It gets updated a couple of times a week, so check back often!

  126. Right now The Purge: Anarchy is showing as release date unknown. The DVD releases for purchase on October 21st, so definitely not before then.

  127. Fantastic – thanks for the tip! I’ll update the list right now – with props to you my astute commenter!

  128. It’s available now if you have a DVD subscription. Sadly, it’s very difficult to tell if or when a movie is going to move to streaming. Some never do.

  129. I got rid of cable a few years ago. I added Amazon Prime because I do a lot of shopping on-line. I noticed some of the shows are free like Grimm and Hannibal.
    In fact, Season 3 Grimm just came out on Amazon Prime. However, Amazon does not have a great selection for free movies. On another note, did anyone notice their streaming speed for Netflix has increased? I have not been sluggish in over a month. Knock on wood.

  130. Does anyone know when those series will have their next seasons available on instant?

    The Walking Dead -Season 4
    Arrow- Season 2
    Hart of Dixie- Season 3
    Beauty and the Beast- Season 2
    Sons of Anarchy- Season 6
    The Vampire Diaries -Season 5
    Supernatural -Season 9
    Heartland – Seasons 6 and 7
    Being Human (u.s version) Season 4

  131. Nope. No word on any of them yet. But I’ll keep checking and add to the list when they start instant streaming!

  132. Our streaming time has been really good for a while now. I don’t use Amazon Prime, but it seems like the two services together gets you almost anything you want!

  133. Here’s the new scoop on instant streaming dates! Walking Dead – available now
    Arrow – Oct. 8 (unconfirmed – keep an eye on the list above)
    Hart of Dixie – October 7 (unconfirmed)
    Sons of Anarchy – October 23 (unconfirmed)
    Vampire Diaries – October 2nd (unconfirmed)
    Supernatural – October 7 (unconfirmed)

    Still no word on Beauty and the Beast, Heartland or Being Human. But this is a good start! I probably won’t be able to confirm until a day or two before, but fingers crossed those dates will hold!

  134. It should stream since the other seasons have, but I don’t have any information on when. Sometimes a little while before the new season starts, but that’s not a given. I’ll keep an eye out!

  135. Are you looking for it on Instant Streaming? This is the DVD release day – there’s no word yet on a streaming date.

  136. It is – but this is the DVD release (so you can get it if you have a disc subscription). There’s no word yet on Instant Streaming, but I’ll keep you posted!

  137. American Horror Story: Coven (season 3) is available on DVD to anyone with a Netflix disc subscription. There is no word streaming yet. Which exactly what the list says.

  138. I wish I could tell you. Movies are much more unpredictable than TV series. It may never stream, it may stream tomorrow. The only thing we can do is keep an eye out for it – and I will!

  139. Hi and thanks for compiling this helpful list! I noticed that AHS:Coven was on the list but only on DVD so I went ahead and added discs to my Netflix plan. I have searched Netflix high and low but cannot seem to locate the title anywhere. Would you be so kind as to offer a hand? Thanks a ton!

  140. Absolutely! They don’t separate out the seasons by name – it’s all under American Horror Story. If you use that term in their search bar the whole series will come up. Click on the “discs” option and it will take you to all three seasons on DVD. Just choose season 3 and add them to your queue. Hope that helps!

  141. So Netflix got Doctor Who Season 7 part 1 and can’t seem to come up with part 2. Then they put Doctor Who Season 11 up, but it’s season 8. If they can’t get the second part of season 7 they need help understanding what people use their service for!!!!!

  142. Coven aired last year on FX as American Horror Story Season 3. You can currently get it on DVD from Netflix if you have a disc subscription, but there’s no word yet on when it will be available for instant streaming.

  143. I cannot figure out any rhyme or reason to their Doctor Who release schedule. It’s a mystery. I suppose it has to do with contracts and airing rights and such, but it never seems to make much sense!

  144. hello, Ok so according to this it says american horror story coven was supposed to air October 7th.. and it is November 3rd.. Does this mean October 7 2015 cause ill be soo upset if that’s true.

  145. Nope, it was released October 7th on DVD for those with a disc subscription. No word yet on when it will go to Instant Streaming but I’m keeping an eye out!

  146. It’s out on DVD for anyone with a disc subscription. I have no idea when or if it will ever be available for Instant Streaming – movies are very, very unpredictable. But if it does I’ll let you know!

  147. Sorry I can tell that you’re quite busy with comments but do you know when they are releasing American Horror Story: Coven?

  148. No problem! It’s been released to DVD for anyone with a disc subscription, but there’s no word yet on when it will be released for streaming. I’ll keep watch, though!

  149. By any chance have you seen any updated info about the other titles? Mainly, once upon a time season 4, beauty and the beast season 2, the originals season 2, or being human season 4 (u.s version)? Also, is there any word on whether they will getting anymore of the cirque du soliel titles streaming? My son loves watching “worlds away”.

    Also, not sure how many people watched this, but I saw that “bomb girls : facing the enemy ” will show up on streaming later this month :) it was posted on their facebook page. Even though it’s a “movie” Netflix will put it on there as season 3.

  150. AH Coven (season 3) is out on DVD for disc subscribers – no word on streaming yet. OITNB – I haven’t seen anything yet about the next season.

  151. The Originals season 2 is still airing on TV, so that’s probably going to be awhile, same for Once Upon a Time season 4. Beauty and the Beast season 2 isn’t even out on DVD for disc subscribers yet – but I’ll keep an eye out!

    I don’t know why Being Human hasn’t gone to streaming – the series is over. I’m watching for it and it will go on the list when it streams.

    There is a lot of Cirque du Soleil available on DVD for disc subscribers, but from what I can tell only Worlds Away is currently streaming. I would suggest checking once in a while for those – they might be in some sort of rotation.

    Thanks for the info about Bomb Girls!

  152. The entire season 7 has been up since the some time in the summer. Season 8 would not be released at all yet since it hasn’t even finished the season on television yet (one more episode of the season and then the Christmas special). I figure that season 8 will be on Netflix some time next summer if they stick to the same general timeline as they did with season 7.

  153. No idea. It isn’t even listed – the DVDs jump directly from 7.1 (not streaming) to 11 (not available).

  154. DVD of this one will be available on November 18th, 2014! No idea about streaming, but you can get the disc through Netflix starting then.

  155. They seem to have put their Doctor Who house in order! You can now save Season 8 – which debuts for purchase on December 9th. It looks like it won’t be out on Netflix then, but I’ve got it marked and will watch for it.

  156. It’s out now – both on DVD and streaming. Are you in the US? Sometimes the dates are different in the UK and Canada.

  157. Glee season 5 is releasing to DVD for disc subscribers in January – no word on streaming yet. AHS season 3 is available now on DVD for disc subscribers but also no word yet on streaming.

  158. It’s available now on DVD for those with a disc subscription. No word yet on a date for instant streaming.

  159. any idea when season 5 of white collar will be available? season 6 has already begun on regular tv and i have been saving the episodes so that i could catch up first…finished seasons 1-4 on netflix months ago….keep waiting, waiting for season 5…what is the delay???? :0(

  160. Good question and I don’t have a good answer. Some shows that stream will make sure their previous season is up before the next one starts to broadcast, but not always. I’m sure there are licensing, contract and other details that affect the timing of all streamed content. Sorry to say there’s no word yet on White Collar season 5, but keep checking the list. When it starts to stream I’ll add it.

    Alternatively, it is available through Netflix on DVD if you have a disc subscription.

  161. Season 4 (Freak Show) is still airing on FX, so it’s going to be a long time before it comes to Netflix.

  162. Can someone tell me when they put the following seasons of Homeland, Dowton Abbey and Resurrection?

  163. Season one of Resurrection, season 4 of Homeland and season 5 of Downton Abbey are all on the “not released yet” list. I don;t know when they will be – but I suspect of the three, Resurrection season 1 will be the first to come out. Homeland and Downton Abbey will be DVD only – don’t know about Resurrection.

  164. When will American Horror Story 3: The Coven be on Netflix I saw a list of releases for Netflix not sure how reliable it was though because it said the first few days of Dec :-/

  165. No info yet – keep an eye on the list, though, I’ll put it in when it starts to stream.

  166. Glee Season 5 is available only on DVD to disc subscribers at this point. No word yet on a date for Instant Streaming.

  167. Thank you for proving this, I just found it via HuffPo ! Agree with our commentary – LOL!
    Your newest fan!
    :-)

  168. It is out on Netflix – for disc subscribers. But no, I don’t know when it will be available for Instant Streaming. Based on their past releases, I would guess it’s going to be quite some time.

  169. I believe the season is still airing, so it’s going to be some time before it comes out on DVD and even longer before it comes to instant streaming.

  170. Seasons 1-3 are available on DVD for disc subscribers in the US. Beyond that, I don’t know. It has never been available on Instant Streaming.

  171. All the other seasons have streamed so it’s a good bet that it will eventually. But with Season 6 being the last, sometimes that holds things up. It’s all wait and see at this point.

  172. Nothing yet – DVD or streaming. But I’ll keep an eye out for it! I’ve never watched it – but I love Mark Duplass. Probably something I should binge watch.

  173. Yes they are. They are available on DVD to anyone with a disc subscription. They are not available on Instant Streaming.

  174. It’s out on DVD for disc subscribers, but not on Instant Streaming. I fear it will be a long wait – but I’ll keep you posted!

  175. wondering when newest season of Once upon a Time, pretty little liars, Raising hope, Wilfred, or Baby Daddy will be up on netflix

  176. I hate to say it but I think it’s going to be awhile. :(
    It just came out on DVD for disc subscribers, I think streaming is months away. But I could be wrong! Keep that hope alive!

  177. Once Upon a Time season 4 is still running on TV, so its going to be a long time yet before it gets to streaming. DVD probably right before season 5 starts in the fall. Same for season 5 of Pretty Little Liars and season 4 of Baby Daddy. Raising Hope was cancelled, and all 4 seasons are available on Netflix now – both on DVD and streaming. There’s no indication at all of season 4 of Wilfred – either on DVD or streaming. So no idea whatsoever on that one.

  178. I wish I knew. I don’t have access to Canadian dates and some shows take much longer for you than others. Sorry I can’t be more helpful!

  179. does anyone know when Glee with be available for streaming. Ugh! I can’t wait anymore. Season 4 ends right in the middle and I would like to catch up so I can watch it live. anyone know?

  180. I suspect it will not be before the current season is done airing. But it’s really hard to predict – I’ll keep watching for it and it will go into the list as soon as it comes out!

  181. Just a guess – it won’t be out until next fall. That’s what they’ve done with previous seasons – waited until the new season is about to start before making the previous season available on either DVD or streaming.

  182. Seasons 1 and 2 are available now on instant streaming (none are available on DVD) – no word on more than that.

  183. Pretty Little Liars season 5 looks like it might come out on DVD soon – but there’s no date yet. Glee season 5 is out on DVD (but no date for streaming is available), but season 6 is still airing on Fox – it won’t be out for a while. No word on Drop Dead Diva – DVD or streaming.

  184. It’s going to be quite a while. If I had to guess, they won’t put it out on DVD until late summer and it won’t stream until after the next season begins.

  185. It’s available from Netflix on DVD for disc subscribers – there’s no word on when it might go to instant streaming. I suspect the wait will be long.

  186. All of those things (except for OITNB) are either still airing on TV or have just finished their seasons. So it’s probably going to be months before any of them become available on DVD for disc subscribers and even longer for streaming.

  187. Me too, but it doesn’t look like either one of us is going to (at least not GoT) – HBO series rarely stream. I’m going to start getting GoT on Disc though, I can binge pretty well with a 3 disc subscription.

  188. Hey I just seenthe netflix original mako mermaids both seasons. Is there going to be a season 3 made? If so when, because the way it ended made it seem like a 3rd season was.

  189. Great – welcome! And UGH! Doctor Who dates are SO FRUSTRATING! So the answer is I have no idea. Season 7 is available on DVD for disc subscribers, but they have a history of being really scattered with their streaming releases.

  190. It looks like Mako Mermaids is a Netflix follow up to the original H2O Adventures series from Australia. There are a couple of H2O Adventure specials available on DVD, but I don’t see anything about a third season of Mako yet.

  191. It actually hasn’t finished airing – the second half will start soon. So Netflix – both DVD and streaming – are still some time away.

  192. Good question. It looks like it might come out on DVD in April, but there’s no word yet on streaming. Keep an eye on the list – I’ll put it up as soon as I know.

  193. Season 5 and season 6 are still in limbo with no indication when they might be available on either DVD or streaming.

  194. I don’t know (no info has been released), but based on what they did last season, I would guess not until the fall.

  195. You don’t have to buy the disc – check disc subscription prices on Netflix. You can get one at a time for about $8 a month.

  196. Probably not until next fall, and that will be on DVD for disc subscribers. Streaming will be even longer. Last season didn’t stream until December.

  197. That’s a really hard one. It has been released for streaming, but I don’t know how long they wait before releasing it to DVD. I’ll keep an eye out though.

  198. So mean my boyfriend were looking for the movie ouija it is supposed to be out on Netflix today but its not on there

  199. Is Heartland, and Heart of Dixie going to be updated? I love those shows and haven’t been able to watch them for awhile because I am done with the Seasons…..Also will Nashville be coming to the line up I missed so many shows that I was hoping it would come to Netflix and I could catch up on it

  200. i live in canada and want to know why isnt season five of glee is not on netflix it really upsets me

  201. It’s out now on DVD for disc subscribers. There’s no way to know if or when it will become available on Instant Streaming

  202. No information yet on either Heartland or Hart of Dixie. Nashville (I assume you mean season 3) is still running on TV so it’s going to be a long while before it’s released. Probably not before mid to late summer, is my guess.

  203. You can often find the latest 5 episodes of currently running series on Hulu. But be careful if you’re using regular (free) Hulu – they time out and only the 5 most recent are available at once.

  204. I understand your frustration. The same thing happens with Homeland and I have no idea why there is such a big difference in release dates for those shows. I hope it shows up soon!

  205. Definitely not before it stops running on Fox. You can see the most recent 5 episodes on the official Fox site and buy them individually on Amazon. But they won’t be available on Netflix for a while. It’s hard to predict with final seasons – sometimes it’s quick, other times painfully slow.

  206. why isnt glee season 5 on netflicks yet its been weeks since the released date for netflicks do anyone know anything when it will be aval??

  207. It is. Are you by any chance in Canada? It hasn’t been released there yet I have no idea why.

  208. When does Doctor Who season 8 come out like, NOT DVD? Sorry I wasn’t clear. When is it available on like, steam, or browse, or whatever it’s called?

  209. When they say series finale does that mean its not coming back on in the summer? What eber happened to the show twisted btw?

  210. No word yet – but it’s going to be quite some time. I’m guessing not before mid to late summer.

  211. There hasn’t been word yet for an instant streaming date. I’ll put it up on the list as soon as there is.

  212. This is the last season of Glee, so no more episodes this summer. It looks like Twisted got canceled after a single season.

  213. No word yet on Haven 5 – either DVD or streaming. I think there’s more of the season yet to come this spring on TV.

  214. I really want to watch new seasons of lab rats vampire diaries the 100 once upon a time and pretty little liars

  215. I wish I knew! You can get it now on DVD if you have a disc subscription, but no idea on a steaming date.

  216. You’re going to have to wait a while on all of them – they usually come out close to when the new seasons start. Keep an eye on the list – I’ll put up dates as soon as they’re out.

  217. It’s going to be a while. It doesn’t usually come out until right before the next season starts to air.
