With the recent cinematic release of the third Maze Runner film; The Death Cure, many fans might fancy re-watching the first two films in the series. Below we’re going to take a look if they are available in any Netflix regions.

Based on the book series written by James Dashner between 2009 and 2016, The Maze Runner is set in a Dystopian future after a series of devastating solar flares and disease wipes out most of America. The first film introduces us to Thomas (played by Dylan O’Brien) who awakes in the centre of an intricate and ever-changing maze along with a group of other boys. With no memory of their past lives, Thomas along with the other captives must try and piece together why they have been subject to this cruel imprisonment and attempt to escape.

There has been a total of five books in the Maze Runner franchise, so it’s perfectly possible if this latest film does well at the box-office we could be in-store for a prequel titled The Kill Order.

Are the First Two Films streaming on Netflix?

Depending on which region of Netflix you are viewing from will be the deciding factor in whether any of the Maze Runner films are available for you to watch.

The first film simply titled The Maze Runner was released in 2014 and has so far been the best critically-received of the series. Unfortunately if you a Netflix user from the US, none of the Maze Runner films are currently available for you to watch, although this could change in the future.

If you live in Canada on the other hand, the first film is accessible on Netflix.

Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials was the sequel released in 2015 and picked up after the group escape the dangers of their maze and right into the extreme challenges of the outside world. Despite the second film also not being available to stream in either US or Canadian Netflix, viewers located in the UK do have access to this title.

It’s clear that at the moment the films are spread out amongst different regions with no clear pattern. This makes it difficult to determine whether the newest film will be coming to Netflix

Will Maze Runner: The Death Cure be coming to Netflix?

The third instalment in the Maze Runner series released on the 26th of January 2018 and has so far been received quite well. But will it be coming to Netflix? As mentioned before this estimation is a little tricky due to the other titles not having any real pattern of availability.

We can conclude that it’s about a 50/50 chance that this film will come to your region within the next couple of years. If we get any new information we will update this article, so make sure you keep it bookmarked, just in case.
