AMC’s Preacher is back for another gory and crazy fourth season and if you’re looking for it on Netflix, you’re probably going to be out of luck. Here’s a look at the streaming status of Preacher and some similar picks on Netflix.
The series is a TV adaptation of the comic series produced by DC Comics of the same name. It’s one of the darker tales in the DC universe as it tells the story of a Preacher who after a supernatural event, enlists the services of a vampire, plus his newfound powers to ultimately find God. Netflix carries plenty of DC shows around the globe but sadly, Preacher isn’t one of them.
Season 4 has just begun its fourth season run on AMC in July 2019.
Let’s run through every main English speaking country and see where you can stream Preacher instead.
Why isn’t Preacher on Netflix USA
Sadly, despite Netflix getting the streaming rights to several AMC shows, Preacher isn’t one of them.
Sony Pictures (who distributes the series) opted to put the series on Hulu instead. Hulu gets new episodes a day after they air on AMC.
Sony Pictures could decide to eventually move the series over to Netflix but Hulu will likely keep the rights up until the series ends and a while thereafter.
Is Preacher on Netflix in the UK?
Preacher doesn’t have a TV home in the United Kingdom.
Instead, Amazon bought up the streaming rights shortly before the series started airing and as such, is referred to as an Amazon Original in the United Kingdom. Like Hulu, new episodes will arrive the day after they air in the US plus you can also catch up with the previous two seasons as well.
What about Netflix in Australia?
On Netflix down under, the only place you can stream the show is through Stan.
Looking for Netflix alternatives?
For alternatives in the meantime, check out Longmire if you particularly like the location of the series. Hemlock Grove and Stranger Things will give you your fix of supernatural elements and of course, most of the catalog from The CW will give you your vampire fixes such as Supernatural, The Vampire Diaries, and The Originals.
More recently, we’d advise you to check out Lucifer which is very similar in premise.
