Where & How to Watch Godless Online or on Apple TV

Godless is Netflix's first attempt at a western series. Originally intended to be a feature-length film, Godless got stretched to seven glorious episodes instead. I love it when that happens! With a cast including Jeff Daniels, Jack O'Connell, Michelle Dockery, and Merritt Wever, plus breathtaking scenery and authentic sets and costumes, this miniseries is sure to please Western afficionados everywhere. All seven episodes of the series have been released, but they're only available on Netflix, which means you need to be subscribed to Netflix. With a Netflix subscription you’ll be able to watch Godless online through your iPhone, iPad, Macbook, or other app-enabled device. You can also stream the show through your Apple TV.

Will There Be a Season 2 of Godless?

Signs point to no, and you can see that as a fortunate or unfortunate thing, I suppose. Godless was originally intended to be a feature length film, not a tv series, so the story has already been told in the seven episodes Netflix produced. While we could bemoan this fact, at least the show won't be flogged along for ratings while dwindling away in the quality department. Leave on a high note, I say! In any case, with the successful ratings Godless brought in, Netflix will surely be planning and producing more westerns, and I can't wait to see what else they bring us in years to come.
