2014 Release Dates

2014 Netflix Releases

Netflix LogoAll the Dates That Are Fit to Print

So here you have it. DVD release dates for all of 2014 as they become available (you can find all of 2011 here,  all of 2012 here and all of 2013 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!

December 23rd

Pride (drama, Bill Nighy, Imelda Staunton) – In 1984 England, miners and gay/lesbian activists joined forces.  This is their story.  I’ll definitely see this one.

The Trip to Italy (comedy, Steve Coogan, Rob Brydon) – I really enjoyed Coogan in Philomena – I’m willing to give this travel mockumentary a try.  Especially since it’s Available on Instant Streaming.

Two Bit Waltz (comedy, Clara Mamet, William H. Macy) – Dysfunctional family comedy!  Instant Streaming Only

Coming Home for Christmas (romance, George Canyon, Amy Jo Johnson) – Estranged sisters scheme to get their parents back together for Christmas.  Yawn.  Instant Streaming Available.

A Very Merry Mix-Up (family, Alicia Witt, Scott Gibson) – Hallmark Holiday Collection.  I leave you to draw your own conclusions.

Tyler Perry’s Hell Hath No Fury Like a Woman Scorned (special interest, Cheryl Riley, Patrice Lovely) – Can’t stand this guy.  And what is “special interest”?  It’s a play, but my gut says it just isn’t that special.

Covert Operation (action, Sedina Balde, Kirt Kishita) – Bounty hunter trapped in China and North Korea.  That’s not good.

A Very Funny Christmas (comedy, Hugh Bonneville, Julie McKenzie) – Despite starring Lord Grantham from Downton Abbey, I am suspicious that these two short movies based on books by David Walliams are not actually very funny.

Capital Games (romance, Eric Presnall, Gregor Cosgrove) – Rivals at the office, but not not in the bedroom.  Corporate gay erotica anyone?

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 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.

Finally! Well, it seems to have taken forever, but Mad Men Season 5 is finally available on Netflix Instant Streaming!   It’s been available on DVD for a while, but now you can gorge on all the episodes in one day if you so desire.  I might do just that – Don Draper and Co., while […]

Netflix Instant Streaming Releases – 2010 Movies

The Cleaning of the Queue Every year I go through the list of saved movies on my Netflix queue.  Most of the things I ad before they hit the DVD shelves eventually come out on disc and go right on over to Everything Netflix.  But sometimes, sometimes they don’t.  I have a pretty strict rule […]

Netflix Series House of Cards Debuts February 1st

I’m Excited!  Sort of… It’s no secret that I am devoted to my Netflix.  I can’t count the number of discs rented or hours of streamed content watched in this house via their services.  So I was very excited to hear that they were going to release an original series of their very own – […]

Netflix Streaming Holiday Movies

It’s beginning to look a lot like blizzard… So, what does one do when one finds oneself in the midst of a blizzard, hunkered down at home with a husband and two teenagers on the 20th of December?  One sleeps in as late as possible, of course.  One also turns to Netflix to see what […]

Netflix + Quikster = WTF?

Netflix appears to let 12-year-old nephew run company I’m a longtime devoted fan of Netflix.  So back in March when they raised their prices I didn’t really bat an eye.  Come on – we get umpteen hours of programming a week from them, at our convenience, and they haven’t raised their prices much in all […]

Netflix Stiffs The Deaf

Entertainment giant drags its feet on closed captioning I am an unabashed fan of Netflix.  I’ve used their services for many years and have no intention of stopping.  But shame on them. Netflix is being sued by the National Association for the Deaf because they do not provide closed captioning for the vast majority of […]

Netflix Lands Mad Men!

AMC series to be syndicated via Instant Streaming I am not a fan of Mad Men.  Don’t get me wrong – it isn’t that I don’t like the program, I’ve never seen it.  You see, when it was first becoming all the rage, I assumed it was on HBO or Showtime, the traditional cable haunts […]

Netflix Original Programming? YES!

Netflix to offer new show via Netflix Instant Streaming It’s been several days now since it was confirmed that Netflix would be venturing into the world of original content.  Much like HBO, Netflix is branching out from offering content from studios and other networks to optioning first run shows, to be available through Netflix Instant […]

Netflix Questions Answered!

A new place for all things Netflix It turns out that I get a lot of queries about when things are going to be released on Netflix.  Or why they haven’t been released yet.  And lots of other things about my favorite online DVD rental service.  It’s only natural, because these things can be annoyingly confusing. But I […]

More Studios Delaying Netflix Releases = More Stupid Studios

Studios and Netflix look pretty dumb in light of Paramount study Earlier this week I wondered about the Netflix release delay of Green Zone.  It isn’t a Warner Bros. release, so it shouldn’t be subject to their agreed upon 28 day delay, right?  Wrong.  It looks like Universal (the studio releasing Green Zone) and Fox have also […]

New on Netflix – New on Movie Rewind

What are you watching this week? It’s no secret that I am a Netflix lover.  They are my main DVD supplier.  When I need a movie fix, they’re there for me, dude. So what does that have to do with you?  Well, it occurs to me that Netflix doesn’t really publish a schedule telling us […]

The Blind Side Not Out on Netflix? I’ll Tell You Why…

Read the reason for Netflix delayed release of The Blind side and find out the actual release date.


  • Reginald Codswallop

    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*!)

  • Jordan Mychal Hanley

    You need to add the year on these because you go from october then back to september. So I’m not quite sure if you mean september 2013 or september 2014.

  • suemillinocket

    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.

  • SB90

    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!!!!

  • suemillinocket

    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!

  • Heather

    Where is homeland season 2?? I can’t see it available yet.

  • StevieG

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

  • MC

    I still dont find Homeland season 2 which was supposed to be there yesterday…. Any new date?

  • suemillinocket

    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.

  • suemillinocket

    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!

  • suemillinocket

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

  • Liz Tutor

    When is season 8 of supernatural going to be on Netflix I’ve been waiting forever!?!

  • suemillinocket

    Hi Liz,

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


  • Adam Marsh

    Anyone hear when season 7 of 30 Rock will be out? I need me some Liz Lemon!

  • suemillinocket

    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!

  • Weston

    When will Glee season four come out? Thanks!

  • Leslie

    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.

  • suemillinocket

    Glee Season 4 was set to be released on September 17th but it’s been pushed back to October 1st.

  • suemillinocket

    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!

  • Kyle Crispen

    Is the show the neighbors gonna be added to streaming

  • suemillinocket

    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!

  • MBags

    Will Chuck ever be released for streaming?

  • suemillinocket

    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?

  • Amanda

    I just checked for season 2 of American Horror Story and it’s not there! :( Any news?

  • suemillinocket

    Yep! It’s coming to disc on October 8th! No streaming date yet – I’ll keep an eye out though.

  • Jaimie

    No 2 broke girls. I stream over my LG TV. Do I need something different?

  • suemillinocket

    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.

  • krittle

    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?

  • suemillinocket

    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!

  • Waterangel31987

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

  • Rpmettam

    Epic isn’t out on Netflix and neither World War Z.

  • HIMYMfan

    When does season 8 of how I met your mother come on netflix?

  • Gleek

    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?

  • Sarah

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

  • Meagan Kohrs-Rizzi

    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 you know why this is or when the real release date will be?i’m dying for it!thanks! -Meagan

  • suemillinocket

    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!

  • suemillinocket

    It’s available now! Both DVD and streaming.

  • suemillinocket

    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!

  • suemillinocket

    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!

  • suemillinocket

    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!

  • suemillinocket

    It’s out, but only on disc. No word on a Streaming date yet!

  • suemillinocket

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

  • suemillinocket

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

  • suemillinocket

    It did come out, on disc. No news yet on Streaming dates.

  • suemillinocket

    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!

  • suemillinocket

    Both are out, but only on disc.

  • suemillinocket

    Just disc for now.

  • suemillinocket

    Not yet – I’ll let you know!

  • suemillinocket

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

  • Ally gape

  • suemillinocket

    It came out Oct. 1 on disc – no info on streaming yet.

  • suemillinocket

    Only on disc for now – hopefully streaming soon!

  • Dianna

    Will instant streaming of Glee season 4 be available soon?

  • MJ

    When will Netflix upload seasons 13-14 of law and order SVU and Being Human Season 3?

  • suemillinocket

    No info yet on streaming for season 4 – it’s only out on disc so far.

  • suemillinocket

    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.

  • Big Al

    When does American Horror Story Season 2 come out for streaming?

  • suemillinocket

    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!

  • tiffasaurousrex

    When will the 4 and 5th season of glee be on Netflix? Do you know?

  • Chris

    season 1 of arrow has been added to instant streaming

  • suemillinocket

    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!

  • suemillinocket

    Thanks for the info, Chris!

  • Cole

    I found a site that listed the release date around December 21st but im not sure how reliable it was

  • suemillinocket

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

  • RockStar

    When is season 3 of revenge coming out for streaming??

  • suemillinocket

    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!

  • Anna Parry

    When will Haven season 4 be available on Netflix?

  • suemillinocket

    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!

  • Javagirl65

    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.

  • suemillinocket

    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!

  • Sarah Freeman

    Any word if ER will ever stream on netflix?

  • suemillinocket

    Nope, sorry. It’s all out, but only on disc. :(

  • Kendel

    any idea when they will add the last episodes of Breaking Bad Season 6??

  • suemillinocket

    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!

  • Bogorass

    Any word on Warehouse 13 season 4?

  • suemillinocket

    It’s available on disc – not a peep yet on streaming.

  • MichaelC

    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!

  • suemillinocket

    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!

  • JulianaBerczely

    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,

  • suemillinocket

    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!

  • BMF

    When Will Season 4 Of Glee Come Out? It Is Past Oct. 1st and I Don’t See Season 4..

  • BMF

    Suemillinocket do you know if Dance Moms will ever be on Netflix?

  • Brandon

    I heard November 1st, but not sure if that is credible info. Hear anything yet?

  • suemillinocket

    It’s out on disc – no word yet on a streaming date!

  • suemillinocket

    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!

  • suemillinocket

    November 1st streaming it is! Your info is right! I’ll put it in the main list up top.

  • Dañiela

    Hi! Do you know if netflix took off Revenge season 2? Doesn’t seem to be there!

  • suemillinocket

    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?

  • ken

    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?

  • suemillinocket

    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.

  • Mandy

    Should I hold out any hope of Doctor Who Season 7 being available for Instant Streaming anytime soon?

  • suemillinocket

    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!

  • suemillinocket

    Good news! All 5 seasons of Chuck are now available on Instant Streaming!

  • suemillinocket

    Yep! Coming to Instant Streaming on November 30th!

  • Jenny

    When will now you see me be on Netflix?

  • suemillinocket

    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!

  • Me

    Is warehouse 13 season 4 ever going to be on streaming?

  • suemillinocket

    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!

  • franchesca

    when does Haven season 4 come onto netflix

  • suemillinocket

    George tells me:

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

  • suemillinocket

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

  • tdr75

    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 :)

  • suemillinocket

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

  • cindi

    why isn’t OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL on netflix “stream”??

  • suemillinocket

    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.

  • yeates2011

    why hasn’t the first season of Tyler Perry’s The Haves And the Have Nots been able to stream?

  • suemillinocket

    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.

  • Daniel

    you lied it has not come out yet and it is November but I have seen it will come out November 30th

  • suemillinocket

    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.

  • Manon

    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 :)

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

  • Matthew

    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.

  • mwro06

    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?

  • suemillinocket

    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.

  • Emily _handreka2003

    When does glee season 4 come out!!! Please help my daughter is going nuts!???

  • suemillinocket

    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.

  • Nathan Ramirez

    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!

  • suemillinocket

    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!

  • Ashley c

    Any idea when golden girls will b streaming

  • suemillinocket

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

  • emilia simental

    When exactly is Dexter season 7-8 coming to Netflix??

  • suemillinocket

    On Netflix, no. On Movie Rewind, you can like us on Facebook and we’ll hook you into this page each week when it’s updated.

  • suemillinocket

    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!

  • MJD

    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.

  • suemillinocket

    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.

  • Jessica

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

  • suemillinocket

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

  • djjerber

    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.

  • suemillinocket

    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!

  • djjerber

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

  • suemillinocket

    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!

  • Ashlyn

    When will Season 3 of Revenge be released on Netflix?

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

  • suemillinocket

    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!

  • Shelbie Celania

    When does revenge season three come out??

  • suemillinocket

    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.

  • Shelbie Celania

    Thank you (: I totally fell in love with this show it is awesome!

  • suemillinocket

    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.

  • Carol J

    Is homeland season 3 available?

  • suemillinocket

    Not yet! I’m really looking forward to it though – I’ll keep you posted!

  • jane

    when will season 3 of revenge be on netflix

  • suemillinocket

    No information quite yet. I;m guessing late summer, early fall.

  • Charity Jordan

    When will season 5 of White Collar be out on Netflix? Also, what about season 3 of Hart of Dixie?

  • suemillinocket

    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!

  • Mia

    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?

  • suemillinocket

    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.

  • Naim Andy Hilal

    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.

  • suemillinocket

    Thanks for the input – we’re getting an overhaul next month.

  • vanna

    when is season 5 of glee coming to netflix

  • suemillinocket

    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.

  • Kat

    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!

  • suemillinocket

    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!

  • unicornisme

    anybody know about American Horror Story: Coven?

  • Jordan Dawson

    Season 3 of New Girl. Do you know when that will be out for streaming?

  • suemillinocket

    Now word yet, on either DVD or streaming.

  • suemillinocket

    No word yet on either DVD or streaming. I’ll keep you posted!

  • david

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

  • suemillinocket

    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.

  • Sami Gaines

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

  • zeljko

    When is supernatural 9 gonna be out?

  • suemillinocket

    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.

  • suemillinocket

    No word yet, even for the DVD release. I’ll keep you posted!

  • Paul

    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?

  • Leticia

    they have just released season 2 of homeland for streaming

  • suemillinocket

    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!

  • suemillinocket

    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!)

  • Rhimereason;*

    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

  • suemillinocket

    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?

  • Rhimereason;*


  • Johnny


  • suemillinocket

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

  • Carlos

    When is Revenge season 3 going to be in Netflix? exact date?

  • suemillinocket

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

  • Lisa Brown

    When do you think we will see glee season 5. And American horror story 3

  • Lisa Brown

    I really really love you netflix I would be lost without you.

  • suemillinocket

    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!

  • suemillinocket

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

  • Gina

    When will season 6 of Parks and Recreation and season 3 of New Girl be available on Netflix?

  • suemillinocket

    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.

  • Hex123ish

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

  • suemillinocket

    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.


    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?


    Nemmine, i see it has an august release. Phew!!!! Happy camper here. :)

  • suemillinocket

    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!)

  • Rhimereason;*

    Do you know when they will release The Carrie Diaries season 2?

  • suemillinocket

    No information yet – I’ll keep an eye out!

  • katateochi

    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.

  • suemillinocket

    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!

  • katateochi

    thanks anyway! I just can’t wait to see the next season of Castle, its sooooo good!

  • Jose Resendiz

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

  • suemillinocket

    I’m showing all three seasons as currently streaming in full. Are you in the US?

  • Jose Resendiz

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

  • suemillinocket

    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?

  • suemillinocket

    August 26th on DVD – no word yet on streaming, though.

  • Wes

    Will Netflix get Oculus on streaming do you know? Thank you!

  • suemillinocket

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

  • Nick

    Any idea when It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 9 will be streaming?

  • suemillinocket

    Good question! The DVD comes out September 2nd. My guess is late fall for streaming.

  • yadleis

    When is season 3 of american horror story coming to netflixs

  • suemillinocket

    It’s set to release on DVD in October. No idea yet about streaming.

  • Brittany

    When is the season 5 of “The Vampire Diaries” coming to Netflix?

  • suemillinocket

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

  • Steve R

    Do you know when How I Met Your Mother season 9 will be available for streaming?

  • suemillinocket

    The DVDs are releasing in September – no word yet on streaming.

  • Ary

    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?

  • suemillinocket

    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.

  • Sally M Peabody

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

  • suemillinocket

    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!

  • Katie Brown

    I binge watched all of Bones and got addicted! When will season 9 be streaming?

  • suemillinocket

    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!

  • Jay

    Past seasons of current shows are usually streamed a week or two before the start of the new season.

  • suemillinocket

    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!

  • Jj

    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

  • suemillinocket

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

  • Netflix is my life.

    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!!

  • Bre

    So will there be any new animes or no
    Because I really need a new good one

  • suemillinocket

    I don’t know much about anime, but Ill keep an eye out for any new ones for you!

  • suemillinocket

    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!

  • christie

    any news yet on white collar season 5?

  • suemillinocket

    The DVDs will be available through Netflix in November – no word yet on streaming.

  • Sara Schmidt Harmon

    Gilmore girls will stream on October 1st…. yahoo came out with article about it today!

  • suemillinocket

    Great – thanks for the info!!

  • Jose Resendiz

    When would “The Purge, The Anachory Purges coming out on Netflix?

  • suemillinocket

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

  • Sara Schmidt Harmon

    Bones season 9 is now on instant streaming! It was released today!

  • suemillinocket

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

  • Sara Schmidt Harmon

    Haven season 4 is streaming!

  • suemillinocket

    It sure is!

  • Dexter Dariola

    When “The Vow” will release on Netflix?

  • suemillinocket

    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.

  • Nia

    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.

  • Sara Schmidt Harmon

    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

  • suemillinocket

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

  • suemillinocket

    I’m really happy with how the prices have come down for all streaming services. Yay for us!

  • suemillinocket

    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!

  • Sara Schmidt Harmon


  • Sara Schmidt Harmon

    The Walking Dead Season 4 now on instant!

  • Sara Schmidt Harmon

    Found this site on yahoo! Thought that you all would be interested in it…. It tells what all will be streaming in the month of October!!

  • suemillinocket

    Thanks for the heads up – I’ve added it to the list. Parks and Recreation is out, too!

  • suemillinocket

    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!

  • LL

    Do you know when Grey’s Anatomy Season 10 will be available for streaming? or if it even will.

  • suemillinocket

    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!

  • AHSfan226

    It’s October 7th and I dint see season three of American horror story…

  • suemillinocket

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

  • Mickey

    Its October 8th, 2014 and American Horror Story Season 3: Coven Still Isn’t On Netflix >_<#

  • suemillinocket

    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!

  • aly

    It’s October 12 and American Horror Story still hasn’t been updated. This list is complete bullshit.

  • suemillinocket

    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.

  • Shannon

    When will White House Down be available for streaming?

  • suemillinocket

    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!

  • Rashie

    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!

  • suemillinocket

    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!

  • Tracey

    When is the coven being aired?

  • 209OliveSt!!Mike McAllister

    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!!!!!

  • suemillinocket

    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.

  • suemillinocket

    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!

  • bb

    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.

  • Taylor

    what about The Fault In Our Stars?!?! I cant find it o Netflix. >.<

  • suemillinocket

    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!

  • suemillinocket

    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!

  • Dith

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

  • suemillinocket

    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!

  • Renee

    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.

  • Genevieve Wise

    What about American horror story season 3 & orange is the new black

  • suemillinocket

    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.

  • suemillinocket

    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!

  • Beth

    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.

  • suemillinocket

    Thanks Beth!

  • amp

    doctor who season 8 date?

  • suemillinocket

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

  • suemillinocket

    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.

  • suemillinocket

    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.

  • suemillinocket

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

    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(

  • Bondy

    When will american horror story season 4 come onto Netflix

  • suemillinocket

    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.

  • suemillinocket

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

  • Dolly Gonzalez

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

  • danielle welch

    What about American horror story season 3? When is that coming out

  • suemillinocket

    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.

  • suemillinocket

    It’s out now on DVD for anyone with a disc subscription – no word yet on Instant Streaming.

    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 :-/

  • suemillinocket
