“These programs have changed the face of television as we know it and help the creators of Black, both in front and behind the camera,” say comedy alumni in the ad’s video. “It allowed us to be in the home of people all over the world. This will give an opportunity to a whole new generation that will be watching on Netflix. So, thanks to everyone who posted on social media or left a message asking about these programs. It did not go unnoticed.
Although the series is coming to the streaming platform, Netflix noted in a follow-up post on the account that they may not be entitled to the series, but they “can promise” that they will be available to watch on the service for a period. “Good and long.”
