Luckily, Katey Sagal promotes the show to her fans and tells them how to watch the Erin Brockovich-inspired series. The Rebel cast and fans patiently await the decision about a possible season 2, even after ABC canceled the series in 2021. Rebel Season 1 is streaming free on IMDb TV, and if the show performs well on the platform, season 2 could be on the way.

Does Netflix have ‘Rebel’ TV series?

Sorry Netflix users, Rebel is not currently streaming on Netflix. The ABC show began its run on April 8, 2021, and concluded on June 10. However, news broke after Rebel Episode 5 that ABC canceled the series. Hulu held the legal drama during that time, with new shows available on Fridays. You cannot watch the Katey Sagal Rebel TV series on Netflix or Hulu right now. However, Hulu does have a 20/20 special, “The Real Rebel: The Erin Brockovich Story.”

Viewers can watch the Rebel TV series on IMDb TV for free, on the IMDb app, IMDb website, and Amazon. Users do not need to have an Amazon Prime account to stream Rebel. The streaming platform is a free ad-supported video streaming service available in the United States. The IMDb app is available on phones and tablets on iOS and Android devices, and Amazon Fire TV.

Will’ Rebel’ be picked up by another network?

According to Deadline, the agreement between IMDb TV and ABC (where Rebel originated) includes the possibility of a request for a second season. However, it depends on how the series performs on the streaming service. The good news is that the cast is included in the option for Rebel Season 2. Katey Sagal wants the show to succeed and is ready for another season of activism. The Rebel cast includes Lex Scott Davis, Tamala Renee Jones, John Corbett, James Lesure, Kevin Zegers, Sam Palladio, Ariela Barr, and Andy Garcia as Julian Cruz.

How many episodes are in the ‘Rebel’ TV series?

In Rebel Season 1, Rebel fought Stonemore with the help of Julian Cruz and many others for 10 full episodes. There were smaller side stories and cases along the way but the series revolved around a faulty heart valve created by a huge corporation, Stonemore. Hopefully, IMDb TV lands Rebel Season 2 for another 10 or more episodes.

In the meantime, viewers can watch Sagal on The Connors, which returns for season 4 on Sept. 22, 2021.

Why did ABC cancel the ‘Rebel’ TV series?

According to ABC Entertainment president Craig Erwich, the Rebel TV series simply did not bring in the viewership. 

“It was a very carefully considered decision and one we tried to be methodical about,” the president told The Hollywood Reporter. “Part of the process was examining the behavior in terms of on-demand viewing and catch-up. How is it performing days after its performance on multi-platform viewing? And there was just not a trend there toward continuing to build the audience. Ultimately that’s what led to a very difficult decision.”
