When is 365 Days 3 on Netflix?
365 Days debuted in June 2020 on Netflix US following its original release in Poland in February 2020. The delay in the film’s international release stemmed from the movie being a Netflix acquisition rather than a Netflix Original which led to the film’s delayed global release.

This move will allow Netflix to not only have more creative control over the films but will also allow the service to avoid any delays between when the films drop on Netflix US.
