Instant Hotel has been an instant hit for Netflixers around the world but as you may know, the show originates from Australia and isn’t quite a full Netflix Original. Here’s the status of season 2 and the confirmed Netflix release date for season 2 of Instant Hotel.
To recap, Instant Hotel is a relatively old Australian series with it debuting on Seven Network in Australia back in November 2017. The series is all about homeowners who convert their luxury homes into luxury hotels. They then swap throughout the process and vote on the winners.
It wasn’t until the end of 2018 when Netflix had announced they’d be picking up the show.
When will Instant Hotel be back on TV in Australia?
Before season 2 comes to Netflix, the series will first air on Seven in Australia. Seven is a reality TV network that now supplies a couple of shows to Netflix. The show’s second season was originally supposed to release in 2018 but got delayed.
The latest sneak preview from Channel 7 came on January 8th when they Tweeted a video from the upcoming season.
What changes to expect in season 2 of Instant Hotel?
The big change going into season 2 is that the host is being replaced. The host for season one was Luke Jacobz who will be seeding the role to a British host called Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen. Brits will know him from appearing on an assortment of different daytime TV shows including Loose Women, House Rules, Countdown and frankly, more shows than you can shake a stick at.

The show’s main prize also has changed for season 2. This season, contestants are fighting for the grand prize of $100,000 AUD.
When will season 2 of Instant Hotel be on Netflix?
That’s a tricky question to answer until we get the Australian air date. As we predicted, the show is coming to Netflix shortly after it wraps up on Australian TV. That’s scheduled to be in the middle of June 2019.
It was confirmed at the end of May 2019 as part of the June 2019 new Netflix releases that season 2 of Instant Hotel will be on Netflix on June 28th, 2019. This release date is for Netflix around the world excluding Australia.
With the show looking to be in its final stages of development, we’re currently thinking it’ll air in Australia in early 2019 and come to Netflix around the world again, soon after.
