Netflix relicensed the series on a short one-year deal (something we’re seeing more and more with distributors like Paramount and Sony) to spark interest in the show in hopes that fans of the show will head to the show’s permanent streaming home ( More on that in a second.)
The series comes from “super producer” Peter Berg, who currently works at Netflix under an overall deal. So far, the only major title of their deal has been the 2022 Mark Wahlberg movie, Confidential Spenser.

The series is available on a variety of other services, with its likely long-term permanent home being Peacock (where it’s available in both free and premium tiers).
Right now, all five seasons can also be found on Hulu and The Roku Channel.
