If you read the title and wondered briefly if we transported back to 2008, you’re not alone. Hot topic tees, Twilight marathons and Single Ladies on repeat; those were simpler times. 2008 may be long gone, but 2021 is continuing to serve us the nostalgia we deserve. The Twilight Saga one of the most beloved film adaptations and longstanding franchises of the last few decades can not only call Forks home, but Netflix too! This Monday the streaming giant announced that all five films in The Twilight Saga will be available to stream on their platform next month; July 16th to be exact! In other words, twihards with a US Netflix subscription can soon watch (and rewatch) Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, Breaking Dawn Part 1 and Breaking Dawn Part 2. Before you dig up your Team Edward or Team Jacob shirts let’s dive into everything we know so far!
Netflix picking up Meyer’s blockbuster hit shouldn’t come as a shock. Due to TikTok the beloved adaptation saw renaissance amongst both old fans and new ones. Not to mention many of those apart of a younger generation diving into fantasy during a time when lockdown took a toll on many; Twilight and many other classics provided an escape during those dark times. Then after Meyer’s long-awaited hit Midnight Sun, it goes without saying the franchise isn’t slowing down anytime soon.
You don’t know how long I’ve waited for you…

Meyer speaks on her plans for her iconic franchise and future projects:
There are two more books I think in the world that I want to write. I have got them outlined and a chapter written I think of the first one, so I know it’s there. I am not ready to do that right now, I want to do something brand new..For me, a lot of the joy of writing comes from creating and I really want to do a new world and new rules and new mythology. Mythology is kind of my thing.
Are you guys excited about Netflix picking up the Twilight films? The films will be on Netflix on July 16th; which gives me just enough time to find my Team Edward shirt. Happy reading and happy watching!
