All three seasons of Borgen, the critically acclaimed Danish political thriller series are now scheduled to arrive on Netflix on September 1st, 2020 after it was originally thought they would come in mid-June 2020. It comes as Netflix has picked up the series in time for season four, due out in 2022. 

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

The political series is often regarded as one of the best political series in history. It stars Sidse Babett Knudsen, Birgitte Hjort Sørensen, and Emil Poulsen. The Game of Thrones fans among you will recognize Pilou Asbæk, who played Euron Greyjoy.

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.

When will Borgen seasons one to three be on Netflix?

Originally we reported that Borgen was due out on June 15th globally. The release was subsequently pushed back to June 22nd and then disappeared from the Netflix schedule altogether (and leaving egg on our faces).

Now the coming soon section once again lists Borgen seasons one through three coming to Netflix on September 1st, 2020.

Date showing on Borgen for Netflix

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.
