With the 2020 reboot of Digimon Adventure arriving on Japanese television April 5th, chosen children all around the world outside of Japan are dying to know one thing: how can we watch?
UPDATE: we are happy to confirm Digimon Adventure: will join Crunchyroll’s Spring 2020 anime lineup! Crunchyroll has announced that new episode will be available on their services starting shortly after 10:30 PM EST on Saturdays.
Is Digimon Adventure: 2020 Reboot Coming To Netflix?
Across certain Digimon fan communities on Instagram and Facebook, images are circulating that insist the Adventure reboot is coming to Netflix. However, there is no official source confirming this, and at the time we have to assume these images are fakes.
According to WillTheWill, Netflix Japan will in fact be getting episodes of Digimon Adventure: one week after each episode airs on Japanese television. Therefore, with a VPN set up, you could feasibly watch the show via Japanese Netflix, but there’s no reason to believe it will include English subtitles, or any non-Japanese language support for that matter.
Is Digimon Adventure: 2020 Coming To Crunchyroll?
UPDATE: less than 24 hours after publishing this article, Crunchyroll has confirmed it will be bringing Digimon Adventure: to the west.
That’s right, we now know that Digimon Adventure: will join Crunchyroll’s Spring 2020 anime lineup! Launch Time: Saturdays at 7:30pm PT starting April 4 2020. That’s approximately 10:30 PM EST.

Seeing as Digimon Adventure Tri was a Crunchyroll exclusive in the Western world back in 2015, it would not be unreasonable to have theorized that the new reboot might be coming to Crunchyroll. Crunchyroll’s editorial website has actually written several news articles about the Digimon Adventure reboot, clearly building hype around the show.
Digimon Adventure: 2020 Reboot English Dub? Sub?
An English dub is always possible, seeing as Digimon Adventure Tri received an English dub that involved many of the original cast members reprising their roles. That said, there has been zero news on such a thing — not even Digimon Adventure Last Evolution Kizuna has an English Dub officially planned.
As of now, it seems we’ll need to wait a bit longer than the fans in Japan to experience the series in any language besides Japanese. How much will the show differ from the original? Will T.K. and Kari grow up to be a canon couple in this iteration? Who will come out on top of the Tai Matt and Sora love triangle? We’ll find out on the next exciting episode of Digimon Adventure: !
