Guillermo del Toro’s Tales of Arcadia trilogy has almost wrapped up. All of the seasons are now available on Netflix, and the final movie in the franchise is due out in 2021. If you’re new to Tales of Arcadia you may be looking for exactly how you watch them in order.
Fortunately, this viewing guide is far simpler than other Netflix viewing guide with perhaps the hardest series to watch in the correct order being Netflix’s The Defender universe from Marvel.
The central connection to all of the series is the fact it’s set in the small town of Arcadia Oaks that seems to be the epicenter of weird stuff going on.
The viewing order of Tales of Arcadia on Netflix is exactly as the series released on Netflix over the years. Netflix themselves do not list the series correctly when you search for Tales of Arcadia.
