The Resident is now going into its second season on Fox and if you’re looking to either catch up or watch the new episodes on Netflix then you’re probably going to be out of luck. Here’s a full look at whether The Resident is on Netflix, whether it will come to Netflix and if it’s not, where it’s streaming instead.
Fox has been ramping up their procedural dramas in recent years to compete with the likes of ABC and CBS who reign supreme in this area. Their new suite of shows includes 9-1-1 and The Resident which premiered in 2017.
The series is set in a hospital where it follows a young doctor who’s learning off one of the best in the business. The show is a mix between House (a previous Fox show) and Grey’s Anatomy.
Why ‘The Resident’ isn’t on Netflix in the United States
Seasons 1 and 2 of The Resident aren’t on Netflix in the US nor will they be coming, at least for the foreseeable future.
Sadly, Netflix in the US dropped its ties with Fox in summer 2017 and has since lost most of the networks main shows like Bob’s Burgers, Family Guy and Prison Break, just to name a few. Most of their titles moved over to Hulu and conveniently, that is also the streaming home (other than the ad-supported Fox site) of The Resident seasons 1 and 2.
With Disney’s take over of Fox, we highly doubt that this arrangement will now change in the coming years.
Other Regions of Netflix
Unfortunately, Netflix hasn’t managed to grab the rights to the show in other regions either. Let’s quickly take you through where The Resident is streaming instead in the main English speaking languages.
In the United Kingdom, we did expect to find the show on NowTV but it’s not there meaning you’ll have to rely on video-on-demand services. The same also applies to Canada and Australia with no network picking the show up.
There you have it, folks. It’s not great news for those looking to watch The Resident on Netflix in 2018 but hopefully, for some, that may change in the future. Should it change, we’ll update you first here at What’s on Netflix.
