The buzz surrounding Emerald Fennell’s Promising Young Woman was at an all-time high just weeks after it entered theaters. But for a large portion of the moviegoing population (at least in the United States), theaters remained closed, leaving many left out in the cold with no way of seeing Carey Mulligan’s performance as a revenge-driven woman on a mission to right the wrongs in her life. Fortunately, fans were given the opportunity to see the movie when it arrived on VOD.

For those who still haven't gotten to see the movie, which has earned itself several spots among the 2021 Oscar nominations, including a nomination for Best Picture, a Best Actress nod for Carey Mulligan, and also Best Directing and Best Writing (original screenplay) nominations for Emerald Fennell for her role behind the camera and her dark and oddly funny script. Is it time to see if this movie lives up to the hype? Look no further because we have put together some quick information that will set you on your way to watching one of the most refreshing and original dark comedies in some time.

Will Promising Young Woman Be On Netflix?

With Promising Young Woman, like any movie really, it is impossible to avoid the question that is on everyone’s minds: will it be streaming on Netflix? It is a valid question considering the number of new and classic movies available on the streaming service, but with its home video release a bit too recent right now, don’t expect to see Carey Mulligan’s latest performance on Netflix anytime in the near future. This is not to say that Promising Young Woman will never show up on the OG streamer at some point in the next couple of years, but if you want to watch it sooner rather than later, you’ll need to purchase a 48-hour VOD rental or find a theater near you.
