This week we were asked when will season 4 of Last Tango in Halifax will be streaming on Netflix? The British show found a great home on Netflix with millions now able to enjoy the stories of Halifax. We’ve gone searching for the release dates and here’s what we’ve found.

The romantic drama that airs first on the BBC has been collecting fans over the past few years because of its well written narrative and relatable story line. Two childhood sweethearts meet again in their retirement years but their children have a big influence as to how easy that it is for a new relationship to blossom.

For most Netflix releases, it usually follows a yearly trend where new seasons of the show get added on an annual release schedule. Season 2 of the show was added onto Netflix in September 2014 and season 3 landed midway through November 2015. That would usually lead us to conclude the article and say we should expect the new season to be added sometime between September and November 2016 but not this time.

You see the BBC show, while confirmed for season 4, hasn’t actually had a release window as of yet. For the past few years, the series has run during the summer months then added to Netflix in the fall. Some media outlets however are reporting that Last Tango in Halifax has been delayed meaning it could be pushed back from the summer 2016 predicted release date.

What’s the reason for the delay? There’s multiple rumours spreading around but the most prominent is that the shows writer and star, Sally Wainwright, is busy with other projects.

So until we find out when the UK release date is, we aren’t able to predict a Netflix release schedule. However, if things go to plan as we stated above, then September to November 2016 seems a likely bet.
