When Is Netflix’s The Mothership Coming?
The movie The Mothership was initially set to be released on Netflix in 2022, as mentioned in their video preview and official documents for the year. However, in August 2022, it was announced, along with nine other movies, that its release would be delayed to 2023.
When Netflix revealed its 2023 movie lineup in January of that year, The Mothership was missing. The closest we got to knowing when it might be released was in June 2023 when Omari Hardwick mentioned in an Essence interview that the movie was still scheduled for later in 2023.
In January 2024, a report from Jeff Sneider of The Insneider stated that the project had been canceled. According to Sneider, extensive reshoots were needed, but the cost and resources required were deemed too high.
Despite this setback, a Netflix source mentioned that Halle Berry would still be starring in another upcoming movie, The Union.
