Eastsiders season 4 looks like it will be going ahead after it gets funding through Kickstarter but will the new and final season of EastSiders be coming to Netflix? We reached out to the creator of the show to find out.
In case you’ve missed out on the first three seasons, allow us to bring you up to date with what you’re missing. EastSiders is an LGBT drama series that’s been nominated for multiple Emmy awards. The series follows Cal who along with his friends goes through a period where he finds out his partner Thom is cheating on him.
Seasons 1 to 3 of EastSiders has now been available on Netflix for some time and its residency on the streaming service has no doubt helped the success of the show helping future Kickstarter campaigns.
Season 4 has once again taken the route of the previous three seasons to remain an independent production and be funded partly on Kickstarter. The campaign at the time of writing had reached its initial funding goal of $100k.
When will season 4 of Eastsiders be coming to Netflix?
As with the previous seasons of Eastsiders, all have been funded independently and are not part of the Netflix Original program. With that said, as we mentioned above, Netflix has been largely influential in growing the show’s audience.
We reached out to the shows creator Kit Williamson asking whether season 4 would be coming to Netflix over Twitter back in September 2018. Here’s the response we got:
We can’t make an announcement about distribution just yet but we can say our backers will be the first to see it!

Now, a year and a bit more Deadline report that Netflix has scheduled the release date for Eastsider season 4 for December 1st, 2019.
We also got confirmation that season 4 is set to be the final season of the LGBT drama.
