Secrets of the Mogwai is set in 1920s Shanghai in East China and introduces a young Mogwai named Gizmo and his human companion, 10-year-old Sam Wing. The animated series debuted its first episode at the Annecy International Animation Film Festival in June 2022.
For those excited about a new entry into the beloved Gremlins franchise, keep reading to find out exactly where you can watch the show and whether or not it’s available on Netflix.
Is Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai going to stream on Netflix?
Unfortunately, Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai will not be streaming on Netflix, at least not initially. It’s possible that the show could come to Netflix in a few years if Warner Bros. Discovery sells the rights to the streaming service.
For example, other WB shows like Justice League, Scooby-Doo, and The Batman have streamed on Netflix. But for now, you shouldn’t expect that to happen, so it’s best to get a Max subscription if you really want to watch the series.
Where to watch Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai
The 10-episode first season will debut with the launch of “Max” on May 23, 2023. It looks like Max will debut two new episodes of the series per week, starting Thursday, May 23, and then wrapping up with the final two episodes on Thursday, June 22.
It was previously announced that the series would also air on Cartoon Network’s ACME Night, but it’s unclear when the show will debut on the network.
