When will Blue Planet 2 be on Netflix?

Netflix has always gotten the big David Attenborough documentaries which are some of the best nature documentaries of all time. This year, Blue Planet 2 released on the BBC in the United Kingdom throughout November and December. As a result, we’ve had a lot of interest as to when Blue Planet 2 will come to Netflix. Let’s take a look.

The documentary series is a follow-up to the wildly successful first season of Blue Planet which released back in 2001. You can already watch the first season of Blue Planet in many regions of Netflix such as the UK. There’s been plenty of great series since and many are on Netflix.

Unlike some of the BBC’s other shows which have release dates scattered all over the place like Sherlock and Peaky Blinders and while productions like Blue Planet take many years to produce, the BBC are consistent at putting these types of series out.

Now although there’s no confirmation that the second Blue Planet is coming to Netflix if the past years are anything to go by then it most definitely will. Last year the BBC released Planet Earth 2 in December 2016 and the series has been announced for release on Netflix in December 2017. Following this, Netflix will be getting season 2 of Blue Planet in December 2018.

What about Netflix UK?

It’s likely, the BBC will likely keep it off of Netflix for a while and keep it on BBC iPlayer so you can expect a wait of up to 2 and a half years.
