The majority of Netflix regions will be able to experience the highly regarded series on June 15th, 2020. Regions set to get seasons 1-3 of the series include Netflix USA, Canada, Australia, and the United Kingdom.

Update 2: the release date has slipped and is no longer showing in the coming soon sections. We’ll keep you updated.
The political series is often regarded as one of the best political series in history. It stars Sidse Babett Knudsen, Birgitte Hjort Sørensen, Emil Poulsen and for the Game of Thrones fans among you, you’ll recognize Pilou Asbæk. Pilou played the role of Euron Greyjoy in Game of Thrones.
In the series, we follow a prime minister who rises to power and how it begins to corrupt you when you’re up on top.
The first three seasons aired in Denmark between 2011 and 2013.
The addition of all three seasons of Borgen comes as Netflix is set to revive the series for a fourth season currently due for release in 2022. The revival is a co-production between DR (a Danish TV network) and Netflix.
The series is often compared to The West Wing in terms of quality. Unfortunately for Netflix subscribers, The West Wing is likely one of the next shows on the way out as HBO pulls it back for HBO Max. We’re currently predicting every season of The West Wing to leave Netflix in December.
Netflix has had some hit and misses when it comes to Original political series. House of Cards originally served as one of Netflix’s flagship series, however, due to the controversy surrounding Kevin Spacey and a rather lackluster sixth season, its impact has been relatively forgotten.
