Frontier Season 4: Renewal Status & Netflix Release Date

Frontier – Copyright Discovery Canada

Frontier season 3 is now out in the wild and if you’re like us, you’re probably looking for information about season 4. Sadly, it’s unlikely we’ll hear any news of the fourth season in 2018. Here’s what we know so far and when you can expect season 4 of Frontier streaming on Netflix.

Unlike The Last Kingdom (which is also waiting for its fourth season) which is now produced entirely by Netflix, Frontier is still only co-produced. That means unless Netflix takes up the reigns to development, Discovery Canada still has a say on the show’s future.

Season 3 has yet to air in Canada

In a first for the show, it has actually released on Netflix before its origin country. No reason was given for this decision but it’s worth noting that it was over the Thanksgiving holiday that season 3 was added to Netflix.

Season 3 is due out on Discovery Canada in December.

Frontier Season 4 Renewal Status

Official Renewal Status: Not yet renewed (last updated: 11/29/2018)

Season 3 is due to start on Discovery Canada on December 7th with it wrapping just before Christmas on December 21st. We may get an announcement during the airing but every renewal so far has come after Discovery has had time to assess the viewing figures throughout the season.

Jason Momoa starring in Frontier

Another consideration to take in is that Jason Momoa, the show’s main star, looks like he’s now fully into filming the upcoming Apple sci-fi series, ‘See’. This could lead to scheduling issues with Frontier.

Could/Should Netflix take over the show’s production?

One of the biggest ongoing complaints from people on forums like Reddit is the inconsistency of the show. Whether that’s down to the writing, set design or the costumes of the character. Similar complaints were aired for The Last Kingdom early in its development but those concerns have been alleviated for its latest season which Netflix took full reigns over.

When would season 4 be on Netflix?

Assuming the show follows the same production schedule, Discovery Canada is still on board and it gets a timely renewal, there’s no reason why season 4 wouldn’t drop in 2019.


Of course, there’s plenty of other titles to watch in the meantime before season 4 drops. As we said above, The Last Kingdom season 3 landed alongside Frontier over Thanksgiving. If you’re just a fan of Jason Momoa, you’re no doubt looking forward to his upcoming performance in DC movie Aquaman due out for release by the end of the year.

Let us know down below if you’re wanting another season 4 of Frontier, these fans on Twitter certainly do.
