While fans of The Secret Circle might not be able to have a physical DVD set of the canceled series to place on their shelves (most likely beside their first three seasons of The Vampire Diaries, of course), they can always log on to Netflix to relive the spellbinding magic of the Chance Harbor Circle of Witches.
After a checking to see if Gossip Girl Season Five and other CW shows had been uploaded to Netflix yet, I was surprised to see The Secret Circle pop up on my “Shows You Might Find Interesting” Tab. So why is The Secret Circle on Instant Watch, but not available in a physical packaged set for TSC fans to bemoan over in the darkness of their living rooms? Well late last year, Netflix and The CW made a lucrative deal, which allowed Netflix to carry previous seasons of The CW’s programming on its Instant Watch streaming service. That deal also included their new dramas at the time, which were Hart of Dixie, Ringer, and of course, The Secret Circle, as well as any show on the network’s previous seasons. So, just bring your tattered and tear-stained hankies to your iPad, computer screen, or other mobile devices when you rewatch The Secret Circle, because despite it being available on Netflix, a DVD set is just not going to happen.
Although I already have the complete season (well, sans one episode) on my DVR, it’s still nice to see the show nestled firmly between The Vampire Diaries and other supernatural themed shows where it can pick up a whole new audience on the video streaming service. At last that’s some type of good news for the rabid TSC fans out there. Right?
