Will Bombshell be available on Netflix?
Bombshell will not be available on Netflix in the foreseeable future.
The film will be distributed by Lionsgate. Lionsgate had a great relationship with Netflix, but it broke down spectacularly in 2015.
There is little chance that the deal will be revived in time for Bombshell to appear on Netflix. Lionsgate has also signed a deal with another streaming service thus locking Netflix out.
Where can you stream Bombshell?
Hulu is the most likely destination for Bombshell. Lionsgate has a streaming deal with Hulu that will see Lionsgate films head to Hulu at the end of their theatrical runs.
The deal is set to cover Lionsgate films coming out in 2020 and 2021. We suspect that the deal will also cover Bombshell, which will come out in late 2019. The show will also be headed to FX as part of the deal.
