When does Netflix release new TV shows and movies?

Netflix original TV shows and movies are typically released globally at 12:00 a.m. Pacific Time.

Some Netflix titles are considered an original in one country but not in another. In that case, the title usually follows this schedule:

  • Country where title is an original: available at 12:00 a.m. Pacific Time

  • Country where it is a licensed title or is not an original: available at 12:00 a.m. local time

    Availability times vary for episodes that are released weekly or that follow their original broadcast airing.

You may need to refresh your browser, reload the Netflix app, or restart your device and relaunch Netflix to watch a newly released title.

Though there is no set schedule, we’re always adding new titles for our members to enjoy.
