Netflix will get all four seasons of Billy on the Street's first season, the reality show that pits Billy Eichner and the general public. Here’s what you need to know about the series, why it’s coming to Netflix and which Netflix regions are getting it.
It's simple. Billy Eichner who is a comedian is given a microphone and it’s his job to quiz the average American with his various games including For a Dollar and Quizzed in the Face.
It has been around since 2011, with its most recent season returning in 2017. The first season consists 10 episodes. Season 2 contains 12, while season 3 is 10 and 4 are 10 respectively.
Although the series has been flipped on many channels in recent years, most people are familiar with it because of its long tenure on truTV. Season 5, however, was released purely on Funny or Die’s YouTube platform.
Netflix and Funny or Die have an ongoing relationship. They just released Between Two Ferns, the movie about the infamous American Vandal.
Billy Eichner first tweeted the move to Netflix. It was later confirmed by Netflix in its November 2019 releases.
Netflix USA will be releasing the first four season on November 1, 2019.
Unfortunately, the award was not given to any other regions.
There are two questions that you might still have: will season 5 be available on Netflix, or can the web-produced episodes continue to stream? It is possible that Netflix may be preparing for a revival, or if they are going in the direction Of Between Two Ferns and giving Billy Eichner a film. Hopefully, we’ll find out the answers to both of those in due course.
If you need more Billy Eichner your best would be to check out Parks & Recreation on Netflix (if you’re in the US) where the entire series is currently streaming at least until next year.
