Murdoch Mysteries stormed onto Netflix in 2015 for the first time and fans have flocked to experience the excellent CBC drama series but when will we be getting season 8 of this Canadian produced show?
As of right now there are seven seasons available of the show but what’s it all about? Well the period mystery crime drama show set in the 1880’s uses advanced technology to track down criminals. This technology was well ahead of its time meaning it gave the detective the edge when it came to tracking down criminals. This concept combined with a solid set of characters plus exceptional realization of the time period results in a show that keeps you coming back for more and is genuinely unique.
So when are we getting the latest seasons? Well let’s start with season 8.
Season 8 began airing on CBC towards the tail-end of 2014 in October and finished up on the 30th of March. Seasons 1-7 were then added to Netflix in September 2015. This is very odd as the season 8 was fully wrapped up for at least 4 months before anything began airing on Netflix. That implies that we’re absolutely due for an update and given that Netflix tends to renew its contracts in yearly cycles, you can expect season 8 to be available on Netflix in September 2016.
Season 9 of Murdoch Mysteries is a little harder to predict as to when it’ll be streaming on Netflix. Given that the show is running the same time periods again (expecting to end in March 2016) it’d normally be the case that it’d be added towards the end of that year which could be a possibility but as we lost out on season 8 last time round, we suspect you won’t be getting season 9 of Murdoch Mysteries on Netflix until September 2017.
Of course, all of this is subject to change at anytime where releases dates could move forward or backwards at any time. Either way, we highly recommend this series to anyone who’s a fan of crime dramas and particularly if you like time-period specific dramas.
