Netflix has surprised many by picking up one of NBC’s shows biggest titles for an exclusive release schedule for some Netflix regions across the world. Netflix in the United States will also be getting season 4 of The Night Shift although much later than other regions.
The medical drama has already had a history on Netflix with the first three seasons currently available in most Netflix regions around the world. The medical drama pits Eoin Macken, JIll Flint, Ken Leung and Brendan Fehr as they play nurses and doctors during night shifts at an emergency room at San Antonio Memorial Hospital.
A new deal in place, much like many other shows in Netflix UK, is part of a deal where new episodes are dropped weekly. Sadly it’s not quite 24 hours after it airs in the US rather arriving 3 days later.
The Night Shift Season 4 Netflix UK Release Schedule
The series airs new episodes of season 4 on Thursdays before being added to Netflix three days later on the Sunday on Netflix UK and other regions. To see whether your region is included, it’s best to check your region on June 25th and if you’ve got a new episode banner, then you’re getting weekly episodes.
Below is a weekly release schedule for the 10 episodes confirmed in season 4.

When will Season 4 of The Night Shift be on Netflix US?
Netflix in the United States has been getting regular drops of The Night Shift for the past few years. The most recent update was on June 8th, 2017 with season 3 landing just before season 4 began airing on NBC. That’s common with NBC shows who like to use Netflix as more of a marketing effort to get more viewers for their next season. Given that The Night Shift is one of the hottest shows it’s more than likely season 5 will be greenlit.
Assuming the release schedule will be following the same formula next year, season 4 of The Night Shift will be on Netflix in the US sometime in June 2018. We realize this is a long wait but if you’re looking for another streaming platform only NBC’s catch up series will be holding new episodes as Netflix purchased the exclusive streaming rights preventing it from being added to Hulu.
