Onesumore: BBC & Netflix Co-Productions Coming to Netflix in 2021 & Beyond

Despite the sheer number of BBC titles that have left the Netflix library, that hasn’t stopped companies from crossing paths and working on some exciting new co-productions. We are tracking all upcoming Netflix-BBC co-productions on Netflix in 2021 and beyond.

Note: This applies to Netflix regions outside the UK.

In the wake of the immense success of Our Planet, Netflix has embarked on a co-production with the BBC to create a revolutionary new documentary. Through the use of revolutionary new technology, some of the most stunning images have been captured of nature’s most stunning and colorful animals. The docu-series explores the use of color in the animal kingdom and the importance it plays in animal interactions.

Kind: Drama | Duration: TBA
Discard: Benedict Cumberbatch, Kirsten Dunst, Jesse Plemons, Thomasin McKenzie, Frances Conroy

Benedict Cumberbatch has yet to star in a live-action original for Netflix, so The power of the dog that more exciting to watch. We’re expecting a powerful performance from the Doctor Strange actor, and who knows, maybe even an Oscar nomination for next year is in sight?

Based on the plot of the novel of the same name, the story takes place on a large ranch in Montana where two brothers find themselves at odds when one of them gets married.

Coming to Netflix internationally outside the UK is the exciting thriller series Red rose. Subscribers who enjoyed The Haunting of Bly Manor should be incredibly excited for the upcoming horror which is being produced by Michael and Paul Clarkson who previously worked on the aforementioned original.

Located in the UK on the Bolton Moors, a group of teenagers have set off a chain of events that takes their town by storm when they download the Red Rose app, which encourages teens to complete a series of challenges from more and more dangerous.

It’s unclear when Red Rose will arrive on Netflix, but it will be in the near future.

Based on the young men that author Imran Mahmood once defended in court, the crime drama centers around the murder trial where a youth tells his side of events to the jury.

The A-List (Season 2) NOT

Seasons: 2 | Episodes: 16
Kind: Crime, Drama, Mystery | Duration: 25 minutes
Discard: Benjamin Nugent, Lisa Ambalavanar, Ellie Duckles, Rosie Dwyer, Jacob Dudman
Netflix release date: TBA

While The A-List has struggled to gain a large following in the UK, it has enjoyed relative success internationally on Netflix. So much so that Netflix picked up the drama from the BBC and took it upon itself to produce a second season.

It was reported in February 2020 that List A would return in August 2020, but thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, this has been put on hold. It’s unclear when the crime drama will return, but we hope to see it by the end of 2021.


Peaky Blinders (Season 6) NOT

Seasons: 6 | Episodes: 36
Kind: Crime, Drama | Duration: 60 minutes
Discard: Cillian Murphy, Paul Anderson, Helen McCrory, Sophie Rundle, Ned Dennehy
Netflix release date: 2022

Arguably the most anticipated series on this list, Peaky Blinders only started filming for the sixth season in January 2021. That means the wait will continue for a while, and we don’t expect to see the season 6 on Netflix at least before Spring 2022..
