Will ‘Prodigal Son’ Season 1 & 2 Premiere On Netflix?
If you are a crime-thriller fanatic, then ‘Prodigal Son’ can be your fix. The intense show is one of the hottest running shows on Fox right now and is just a few steps away from becoming a global sensation. What’s stopping it from achieving that status at this moment? Well, it is the fact that ‘Prodigal Son’ is not all the streaming platform.
The series features Tom Payne and Michael Sheen as criminal psychologist and a criminal genius. Together, they solve mind-numbing cases and find the culprits. Imagine Netflix’s ‘Mindhunter’ with a twist of solving crimes. The show had a successful run for its season 1 and was ordered for a renew in May 2020.
Despite the success, the show is not on Netflix. And as of now, the chances of the show premiering on Netflix is extremely low. The reason is that Fox and Netflix have drifted apart. Netflix does not have access to shows airing on Fox for quite some time now.
The show is owned and distributed by Warner Brothers. It is available on Hulu as of yet but probably not for very long. The show might soon get its own premiere on HBO Max, where the Warner Bros’ interests lies. As of Netflix, it might air the show nationally and internationally once Warner Bros takes off their rights from the show after its final finale.
