The revolutionary new heist show Kaleidoscope can be seen in any sequence you like. Kaleidoscope creator and showrunner Eric Garcia built the plot around the idea that viewers all over the world will experience the episodes in different orders. To know how to watch Kaleidoscope read below.
The Plot of Kaleidoscope
The show is a heist drama in which a gang plots to pull off the greatest theft ever. The show spans a quarter of a century, during which time the burglars must not only outwit the world’s most formidable corporate security team and the FBI but also crack an indestructible vault.
A couple of weeks ago, Netflix produced a video titled “Inside Look” outlining the series and urging fans to “solve the riddle” when the crime program officially finds its way into Netflix. There has been no official trailer for the show as of yet, so we can expect more information as it becomes available.
How To Watch Kaleidoscope?
There is, strictly speaking, no “right” order in which to watch Kaleidoscope. Instead of using a traditional episode numbering system, the first seven episodes are simply presented in a random order according to the color they were assigned. Netflix will determine the “proper” order in you watch shows in, but it doesn’t mean you can’t skip around if you really want to.
Regardless of how you feel about the other episodes, “White,” the one where the theft is really seen, is meant to be the series finale. But if you’re dead set on seeing the rest of the episodes in order, here’s what to do:
- Violet: Twenty-Four Years Before the Robbery
- Seven Years Prior to the “Green” Heist
- Title: “Yellow: 6 Weeks Before The Heist”
- Orange: Three Weeks Before the Heist
- Title: “Blue: 5 Days Before the Heist”
- Red: The Day After the Robbery
- The Pink Movie: Six Months Later.
- Black: The Robbery
Does Season 2 of Kaleidoscope Exist?
Kaleidoscope’s renewal for a second season on Netflix has not been confirmed. There was only ever going to be one season of the show because it was billed as a limited series with only eight episodes. Eric Garcia, the show’s runner, has previously discussed the production’s consideration of repeat viewings rather than a continuation of the tale.
“I’m hoping that everyone will have their own unique take on the story and its characters. The show “truly lives” through fan discussions and repeated viewings in which the episodes are experienced out of sequence, he explained.
However, there have been times in the past when limited series has been expanded into multi-season shows due to popular demand. It’s possible that Kaleidoscope could return for a second season if it receives the same level of support as the first.
A Netflix show’s renewal or cancellation decision won’t be based on how well it performs in its first few weeks of streaming.

When Will Kaleidoscope Season 2 Premiere?
A premiere date for Season 2 is currently unknown because of the lack of an official renewal announcement. The premiere date for the first season was set for January 2023, and the announcement for it came in September 2021. Thus, we can anticipate the show’s comeback by mid to late 2024 if the second season is confirmed in the next few weeks.
If the show continues with the same characters in different eras, then we can expect to see Giancarlo Esposito, Paz Vega, Jai Courtney, Rufus Sewell, Rosaline Elbay, Tati Gabrielle, Niousha Noor, Peter Mark Kendall, and Jordan Mendoza in Season 2.
What Can We Anticipate From Season 2 of Kaleidoscope?
There were lingering mysteries after the first season’s conclusion. Neither the fate of Stan Loomis nor the paternity of Hannah’s child was disclosed on the show. Roger Salas was still plotting retribution from prison after the triplets got away with a heist and a murder.
If the show gets renewed for a second season, all of these possibilities would be open to exploration. The series can also follow an anthology model, in which a new group of individuals goes on a robbery. But at this time, we just don’t have enough information to confirm the storyline.
In the meantime, the official synopsis for the series went as follows: “spanning 25 years, the kaleidoscope is an all-new anthology series following a crew of expert thieves and their effort to open a supposedly impregnable vault for the highest payment in history.”
