Based on the popular 2018 novel by Delia Owens, Where the Crawdads Sing is a new movie starring Daisy Edgar-Jones, Taylor John Smith, Harris Dickinson, Michael Hyatt, Sterling Macer, Jr. and David Strathairn. The film is releasing this weekend.
The story follows a young girl named Kya (Edgar-Jones) growing up in North Carolina between 1952 and 1969. Kya lives a very isolated life and takes refuge in the local marsh, studying the ecosystem and its creatures. Told via alternating timelines, part of the story is a coming-of-age tale while the other is a murder mystery.
Considering the amount of hype behind the novel, this has become one of the most anticipated movies of 2022. Many fans have been waiting for the film for some time now, as it was delayed due to the pandemic.
Is Where the Crawdads Sing on Netflix?
No, Where the Crawdads Sing is not on Netflix right now, but it will likely come to the streaming service later this year, per the terms of the Netflix/Sony deal.
When will Where the Crawdads Sing be on Netflix?
We don’t have a release date yet, but the movie will come to Netflix soon thanks to the Netflix/Sony deal. Previously, the film was going to release on Netflix in July 2022, but that has changed since the movie’s release date had to be pushed back amid the pandemic.
The new deal is in effect for Sony’s 2022 slate. The first film we’ll see on Netflix as part of that deal is Uncharted, which is set to stream on July 15. If Where the Crawdads Sings follows a similar trajectory then we can anticipate its release about five months after it debuts in theaters, meaning we could see it stream on Netflix sometime in December 2022.
