How to clear Netflix watched list for shows and movies

If you’re anything like me, you have TV shows and movies that you watch over and over. I always found it annoying that once you were through a series and wanted to re-watch that it appeared as though every episode was already watched. Well now you can change that.

Clear Viewing Activity

By clearing the viewing activity for a particular TV series or movie, it will appear again as if you haven’t watched it. To do so follow these steps:

  1. Login to Netflix in a web browser (this can’t be done from an app).
  2. Select the profile that you wish to clear activity from.
  3. From the menu in the top right with your profile name, select Your Account.
  4. The last section on this page is called My Profile. Click on Viewing activity.
  5. Click on the x to the far right of the movie or a single episode from the series you wish to clear viewing activity from.
  6. You will be then given the option Remove series?
  7. Click Remove series to reset the played status for every episode.
  8. Watch from the beginning all over again!
