Chappelle’s Show Netflix Release Updates
Viacom CBS has been on a licensing spree in recent months particularly to the streaming giant. At the start of the month of October of this year, Netflix picked up two of the primetime shows of CBS, including Evil and The Unicorn. Later in the month of November of this year, the streaming platform will be carrying four seasons of the reality series of Viacom CBS, America’s Next Top Model, and Survivor.
The series is coming to Netflix on a non-exclusive arrangement on November 1, 2020, but currently, only in the United States.

The home of Dave Chappelle has been on Netflix in recent years, as Netflix has released a number of specials with the famed comedian plus six specials including,
- The Age of Spin: Dave Chappelle Live at the Hollywood Palladium
- Dave Chappelle: Equanimity
- Dave Chappelle: The Bird Revelation
- Deep in the Heart of Texas: Dave Chappelle Live at Austin City Limits
- Dave Chappelle: Sticks & Stones
- Dave Chappelle: 8:46
Chappelle has also made an appearance in Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee and can be seen in the 22nd Mark Twain Prize for American Humor which is also available on Netflix.
Netflix has not had the best track records in the sketch comedy arena thus far. Its biggest entry into the genre so far has been I Think You Should Leave with Tim Robinson who was renewed for a second season. We still do not know whether The Iliza Shlesinger Sketch Show will be returning for future seasons.
As we mentioned, the show is being essentially leased to Netflix on a non-exclusive basis. That’s already evident given that it’s already been lined up for a rival streaming service, HBO Max.
