Contrary To What You've Heard, Netflix Is Not Changing Their Binge-Watching Format

Don’t be alarmed, Netflix faithful–the service isn’t changing its release format.

Earlier this week, Complex wrote an article headlined “Multiple Netflix Series Will Now Drop Episodes Weekly Instead Of All At Once.” The article was making reference to the fact that new episodes of The Great British Baking Show are now dropping weekly instead of all at once, as previous seasons have done. The article also referenced rap competition show Rhythm + Flow, featuring judges Cardi B, Chance the Rapper and T.I. The episodes will be released in batches starting October 9.

People were led to speculate that Netflix was changing up its entire format, but Netflix has taken to Twitter to quell the rumors.

“[T]he weekly release of licensed titles (like Great British Baking Show) isn’t new and in hopes of keeping Rhythm + Flow‘s winner a surprise, we’re trying something new! but not happening with more shows than that,” wrote the network in response to Complex.

So, don’t fret everyone; your binge-watching experience isn’t going to be affected across the board! Crisis averted.
