When is The Glory Netflix release date?

However, we’ve known for a little while now that The Glory would be coming to Netflix on Friday, December 30th, 2022, and thanks to the release of promotional material, and the official teaser trailer, we can confirm the release date is correct.
All eight episodes of Part 1 will be available to stream upon release.
