When will The Mothership be released on Netflix?

The movie was initially part of the 2022 lineup Netflix movie lineup as confirmed in their video preview for the year and official documents. In August 2022, we confirmed alongside 9 other movies that the movie had instead been pushed into 2023.

In January 2023, Netflix once again unveiled their preliminary 2023 movie slate but The Mothership was notably not present. As of August 2023, the movie is still not available in Netflix’s official movie preview documents.

The closest we’ve come to a window was back in June 2023 when Essence interviewed Omari Hardwick with the article stating that the movie is still scheduled to hit “Later this year [2023]”.

A Netflix page for the movie still exists although it’s got no information on it.

Given Netflix has mostly revealed its Fall 2023 slate, it’s likely that the movie will release perhaps in 2024 or maybe it’s been shelved.
