It’s been a day full of delayed The CW releases on Netflix with some of the biggest titles from the network’s lineup finally hitting the service today. Here’s a full rundown of the 8 new releases on Netflix for October 19th, 2021.

Why all The CW shows at once? It’s unclear but there’s clearly been a problem getting these shows to Netflix in 2021. Usually, new seasons come 8-9 days after their finale airs but in many cases it’s been much later than usual.

Today is your last chance to catch One Punch Man before it departs the service in full tomorrow.

Don’t forget, another title from The CW is scheduled to hit later this week in the form of the latest season of Dynasty season 4 coming on Friday. Also coming to Netflix this week is season 2 of Locke & Key, Maya and the Three, and the OG Cowboy Bebop series.
