When Will Miraculous: Tales Of Ladybug & Cat Noir Season 4 Be On Netflix?

The French animated series "Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir" has charmed international audiences with its inventive superhero story about two teenagers in Paris trying to juggle their regular lives, their superhero duties, and their (complicated) love for each other. It's made for kids, but plenty of adults have found it lovable as well.

In the starring role is Marinette Dupain-Cheng (voiced in English by actress Cristina Valenzuela), an awkward yet kind student who transforms into the confident, capable superhero named Ladybug and is aided by a small creature named Tikki. She's got a massive crush on her rich, sheltered classmate Adrien Agreste (voiced in English by Bryce Papenbrook). Adrien is also secretly her crime-fighting partner Cat Noir, a jokester that's hopelessly in love with Ladybug. In each episode, a mysterious villain named Hawk Moth (voiced in English by Keith Silverstein) takes advantage of one of the innocent civilians of Paris by turning their negative emotions into fuel for a supervillain transformation. Ladybug and Cat Noir fight to rid the victim of Hawk Moth's control and save all of Paris together.

So far, three full seasons have aired, while Season 4 is in the midst of releasing. The second half of Season 3 hit Netflix in February 2020, but Netflix hasn't seen a single new "Miraculous" episode since. So, when can fans expect to see Season 4 on the streaming giant?

Season 4 probably won't end up on Netflix

The "Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir" distribution is complicated, to say the least. The French cartoon usually debuts in France and other countries before it's dubbed into English and makes its way to the United States. It first came to the U.S. via Nickelodeon but gained popularity when the first season was put on Netflix in 2016. Per Business Wire, beginning in 2019, Disney Channel has the distribution rights to the series in the U.S., so Season 4 episodes have actually been airing there in 2021, though sometimes out of order.

Seasons 1 through 3 are on Netflix, and some of Season 4 is available on Disney+ and the Disney-owned streamer Hulu. The last English-dubbed episode of Season 4 on the schedule, "Ephemeral," will come out on November 27 and quickly make its way to Disney+ and Hulu (via Miraculous Ladybug News). However, the 26-episode season still has six episodes left to air with no confirmed release date.

The initial deal with Netflix only covered the first three seasons, according to a ZAG Entertainment press release (via PR Newswire), so it's entirely possible that Season 4 will never land on Netflix. Or, at least not unless the distribution rights change again, which could happen at any point in the future. Fans will have to watch Season 4 on one of the Disney-owned channels, where the confirmed Seasons 5 through 7 (via Twitter) will likely land as well.
