Fans of dating shows like The Bachelor and The Bachelorette have likely been intrigued by the new show advertised as The Courtship. Setting itself apart from other dating shows, The Courtship transports its competitors to a Regency-style setting in England where a heroine gets to look for her duke.

The reality show takes place in a castle set against an idyllic countryside backdrop. Suitors must woo the leading lady with handwritten love letters, carriage rides and lakeside archery—in other words, it’s not your average dating show.

Described as the “ultimate social experiment in romance,” The Courtship takes obvious cues from Netflix’s successful series Bridgerton. I’m pretty sure when the show was announced, Bridgerton was even used as a reference in the press release. Does that mean The Courtship is available to watch on Netflix as a companion to Bridgerton?

Is The Courtship on Netflix?

Despite using Bridgerton as inspiration, that’s as far as the Netflix affiliations go with this series, which is actually an NBCUniversal production. The show is not available to watch on Netflix, and it probably won’t be anytime soon.

Instead, The Courtship will be available to stream on Hulu and Peacock. Then in September, when NBC cuts off its content flow to Hulu, it will only be available through Peacock.

The good news is that Netflix has a lot of similar shows. Bridgerton is, of course, the best way to get the vibe of this series on the platform, but if you want to watch a reality dating show, you can choose fromToo Hot to Handle, Love is Blind, Are You the One or Dating Around.

Where to watch The Courtship

For now, if you want to get swept away in this romantic fantasy, you’ll need to watch the show live via digital television services like Hulu Live, Sling TV or YouTube TV, or you can watch episodes on demand next-day on Hulu or Peacock.

The first episode premiered Sunday, March 6, with new episodes airing Sunday nights at 8/7c on NBC.
