This is Us returns for its third season on NBC in 2018 and if you’re looking to see whether you can catch up or watch the new episodes on Netflix, you may be disappointed. Here’s your complete guide to streaming This is Us on Netflix, whether it’s coming and if not, how to stream the series instead.
The NBC drama has quickly become a ratings juggernaut for the old TV network as it tells the story of triplets and their new parents. It’s a tear jerker and also contains plenty of laughs too.
Season 3 just began new airing new episodes from September 25th, 2018.
Why Netflix US won’t ever get This is Us
NBC still does have a healthy relationship with Netflix with some of their biggest titles like The Blacklist and The Good Place getting regular updates.
Despite NBC being the network broadcasting the show, it’s actually produced and distributed by 20th Century Fox. As you may remember, Fox pulled out of their contract with Netflix last year meaning that no new or old titles (with few exceptions) would come to Netflix.
Instead, you’ll have to use an alternative to Netflix. You’ll find This is Us on both the official NBC applications as well as available on Hulu with both new and old episodes available.
Netflix Canada gets new episodes but won’t be until 2019
Netflix Canada remains the only Netflix region to get regular updates of The Is Us. Season 1 was first added to Netflix in September 2017 and season 2 just recently dropped in September 2018.
Given the release date of the first two seasons, we’re predicting that season 3 will be coming to Netflix CA in September 2019 to continue the trend.
What about Netflix Australia and Netflix in the United Kingdom?
Sadly, neither Australia or the UK are streaming This is Us either.
For those in the United Kingdom, the show resides on Amazon Prime but it’s worth noting that it’s particularly slow at updating new seasons. Likewise, Australians only can stream the show on Amazon Prime too but only has the first season available at the time of writing.
There you have it, This is Us isn’t on Netflix for most. We’ll be back later in 2018 with a list of Netflix alternatives if you love This is Us.
