Dynasty has finally started airing its fourth season and will be coming to Netflix much later this year. This is when we expect season 4 of Dynasty to arrive all over the world including the Netflix US, Netflix UK, Netflix CA and many other regions.
The soap opera reboot of the 1970s show has been on Netflix since its reboot on The CW in October 2017.
Now in its fourth season, the show has suffered a bleeding audience on the original network it airs on, but continues to delight Netflixers around the world.
Just before we dive into the respective Netflix release schedules, we need to quickly draw your attention to the fact Dynasty is not a full Netflix Original for people outside the US. Instead, it falls into the internationally distributed Netflix Original category. What this essentially means is that Dynasty is only an original outside the broadcast country, in this case the United States, but not under the full control of Netflix.
When will Dynasty season 4 on The CW?
Dynasty is one of The CW’s shows that was postponed to 2021 instead of airing in the regular October slot.
The reason it aired so late is that: Dynasty was hit by the coronavirus production delays that have nearly hit the filming schedule of every show around the world.
It was originally reported that Season 4 would air in January 2021, but it has now been confirmed that it won’t. Instead, Season 4 will air on The CW on May 7, 2021.
TVLine reports that despite the delays, they expect a full season for Season 4, which would mean a return to the 22-episode season.
When will Dynasty season 4 on Netflix in the United States?
Dynasty still arriving on Netflix US as part of its existing legacy contract with The CW.
Under the contract, Netflix will get new episodes of seasons approximately 8 days after the season finale.
Given the delay, we will at the earliest season 4 of Dynasty added to Netflix in the United States in mid-October 2021 if the show runs continuously for 22 weeks and ends in early October.
If the show has mid-season breaks, it might not be until November or December or even early 2022, but we’ll update as the release schedule becomes clearer.
When will Dynasty season 4 on Netflix outside the United States?
If you are outside the United States, you will receive new seasons of Dynasty as Netflix Original. This includes Netflix Australia, Netflix UK, Netflix Canada, all of Europe, Latin America and Asia.
For season 3, Netflix got international Dynasty season 4 on the same timeframe as the United States, meaning it wasn’t added to Netflix on a weekly basis like some other The CW shows (Riverdale being the main example).
Will Netflix jump back to its weekly schedule internationally from Season 2? The answer to that question is no. Neither region of Netflix gets Season 4 every week.
Although we never got an official reason for Dynasty doesn’t drop weekly, we don’t expect it to go back. Netflix also lost weekly episodes of Black lightning.
Instead, Season 4 will likely join Netflix outside of the US at exactly the same time as the US, meaning an October to December 2021 release date.
Looking even further ahead? Good news! Dynasty has been renewed for season 5.
That’s all we know so far about when Season 4 of Dynasty will be available on Netflix worldwide. We’ll keep you posted as and when we find out more and let us know in the comments if you’re excited for the new season.
