‘Queen of the South’ To Remain on Netflix Through 2026

Good news! The show isn't going anywhere for at least another couple of years.

Queen of the South ended its fifth season on USA Network in 2021, with all 62 episodes streaming on Netflix in most regions worldwide. That was due to change, with the show departing in May and June 2024 in the United Kingdom and United States, respectively. We’re happy to report that’s no longer the case, with the show staying for another two years through 2026. 

Developed by M.A. Fortin and Joshua John Miller, Queen of the South concluded last year after its 62-episode run. The show follows Teresa Mendoza, played by Alice Braga, who starts from humble beginnings to building a vast drug empire.

Netflix US received the final season in April 2022, while Netflix International added it earlier in ’22.

Seasons 1-4 of Queen of the South were due to depart in full on June 6th, 2024. That would have meant your last day to watch was June 5th, at least according to a new notice displaying when you begin watching the show.

That removal date lines up four years following the fourth season being added, and indeed, when booting up an episode from season 5, the notice of removal isn’t currently displaying.

We took a screenshot of what that removal notice displayed within Netflix looked like:

However, the show has since been renewed with all five seasons now remaining on Netflix US until at least April 7th, 2026.

Netflix UK was losing seasons 1 through 4 a little earlier than the US. According to the notice on the show, the last day to watch it is May 28th, with the removal planned for May 29th. Like the United States, that’s no longer the case, with all five seasons now set to leave on March 9th, 2026.

As always, removal dates are subject to change, and often times, when early seasons are leaving before later ones, you see the removal dates adjusted to align further down the track.

When will Queen of the South be Leaving Netflix Internationally?

We checked a few other countries with removal dates aligned with our original prediction. For example, Canada and select European territories are due to see the series on Netflix on June 16th, 2027 – so you’ve got a good three years to continue watching.

One final note: If you’re planning on signing up to Netflix to rewatch or watch Queen of the South for the first time, you’ll need to do so on Netflix’s premium tiers, as it’s unavailable on Netflix’s ad tier.
