Ever Syfy Series on Netflix US in 2024


Pictured: Happy!, The Magicians, Resident Alien

Syfy, owned by NBCUniversal, has mostly kept its output to its own platforms in recent years. Still, with the arrival of Resident Alien, we wanted to take a deep dive into all the Syfy series currently streaming in the US.

Below, we’ll primarily cover all the scripted titles from Syfy on Netflix and the two reality series Netflix has recently picked up from the network.

Note: These are listed in order of availability on Netflix in the United States – oldest to newest. All removal dates are subject to change, particularly for Resident Alien, as it’s a recent addition with another season potentially set to come. Netflix also provides a category code for Syfy titles – 100413. 


Resident Alien (Seasons 1-2)

First Added to Netflix: February 14th, 2024
Current Removal Date: February 13th, 2025

Ahead of its third season airing on Syfy, Netflix unexpectedly licensed its first series from the network in years by picking up both seasons 1 and 2 of Resident Alien. The series also continues to stream on Peacock.

Starring Alan Tudyk with Chris Sheridan helming the series, it’s a comedy series that’s about an alien who has crashlanded on Earth and has to learn to survive by assuming the identity of a small-town Doctor.


Nightflyers (Season 1)

First Added to Netflix: December 2nd, 2019
Current Removal Date: December 2nd, 2024

Nightflyers On Netflix Syfy

One series with a lot of promise but seemingly fell short was the George R.R. Martin adaptation of Nightflyers. This show also landed as a Netflix Original title in all international regions but departed in December 2023.

The series 10-episode cast includes Eoin Macken, David Ajala, and Jodie Turner-Smith.

Sadly, the show wasn’t given a second season order, but despite that, you can still enjoy this show from start to finish while getting a somewhat satisfactory ending. The series is unavailable to watch on Netflix’s ad tier.


Happy! (Seasons 1-2)

First Added to Netflix: December 6th, 2018
Current Removal Date: March 27th, 2025

Happy Syfy Series

Christopher Meloni is behind the surreal crime-comedy series that was sadly cut short after only two seasons. The show follows an ex-cop who has turned to alcohol in recent years and believes he’s gone extra mad as his new best friend is a cartoon unicorn who is taking him on an adventure to rescue a young girl whom Santa Clause has kidnapped. Yep, completely batshit but absolutely brilliant.

The show’s removal coincides with exactly five years after the final season was added in March 2020. As with many of the other legacy Syfy shows currently streaming – you can’t watch Happy! on Netflix’s advertising tier. That applies internationally to Netflix, where the show is a Netflix Original.


Van Helsing (Seasons 1-5)

First Added to Netflix: July 31st, 2017
Current Removal Date: April 16th, 2026

Van Helsing Syfy Series

The classic character of Mary Shelley’s Van Helsing has seen many on-screen adaptations over the years, and starting in 2016, we saw Vanessa Helsing take over the mantle with Kelly Overton leading the cast.

Once again, this show is available globally, with the show being a Netflix Original in international territories. The show is also blocked out from Netflix’s advertising tier.


Wynonna Earp (Seasons 1-4)

First Added to Netflix: April 1st, 2017
Current Removal Date: July 26th, 2025

Airing across 49 episodes, Wynonna Earp is a hidden gem of the Syfy lineup from the past decade. Based on the comic book series, the dark fantasy series follows the great granddaughter of famous lawman, Wyatt Earp, who has the ability to send revenants of criminals that he locked away back to hell.


The Magicians (Seasons 1-5)

First Added to Netflix: December 26th, 2016
Current Removal Date: January 15th, 2025

The Magicians Netflix Syfy

The joint longest-running available Syfy series currently on Netflix is The Magicians, the series from Sera Gamble and John McNamara. Based on the novel of the same name, the show follows Quentin Coldwater, who enrolls as a magician at a top school.

The show was only ever added to Netflix in the United States, with streaming options much more limited internationally. As per all the other shows added to Netflix in the 2010s, this show cannot be watched on Netflix’s advertising tier and is departing four years after its final season was added in January 2021.
