The order of episodes you watch Kaleidoscope doesn’t matter and will give you changing perspectives on Netflix’s new heist series.
As we head into 2023, fans of OTT streaming content are quite used to different series taking unusual format approaches. For example, Black Mirror: Bandersnatch used an interactive storytelling approach, while titles like The Witcher opted for a more subtle format of displaying multiple timelines at once.
However, Netflix’s new heist series Kaleidoscope takes non-linear storytelling to a new level. Not only will the entire series be able to be watched in any particular episode order, there are reports that Netflix will actually randomize the episode order for each viewer; giving them a unique perspective on the heist.

Kaleidoscope Episode Order Can Be Almost Anything
The Kaleidoscope limited series is set to include eight individual episodes, set in the story between 24 years before the heist and six months after.
However, it turns out that the specific order in which you watch Kaleidoscope episodes doesn’t matter in the show’s larger scheme, as the series was produced to be non-linear.
This means viewers can watch Kaleidoscope episodes in any order they choose and the main story will still make sense; moreover, the perspective you gain will actually change depending on the order in which you decide to watch the episodes.
According to TVLine, “After each viewer has watched an intro item titled ‘Black’, Netflix will randomly show subsequent episodes, always ending with the finale ‘White’ – giving each user a ‘different immersive viewing experience’. .
It’s important to note that this is not a choose-your-own interactive show like Black Mirror: Bandersnatch; instead, more like Paramount’s Interrogation series where the episode orders are correct as long as you end with the “White: The Heist” finale.
“The gripping crime anthology series takes a non-linear approach to storytelling, creating intrigue and suspense in unique ways, with Netflix members each having a different immersive viewing experience. Some members may start with certain episodes (like “Yellow” or “Green” episodes) and then go further in their own personal viewing order with different episodes (“Blue” or “Purple” or “Orange”, followed by “Red” ” or “Pink”) to the epic story finale “White: The Heist”. – Netflix press preview, via Netflix Media Center.

The main order is: “Yellow: 6 weeks before breakage”, “Green: 7 years before breakage”, “Blue: 5 days before breakage”, “Purple: 24 years before breakage”, “Orange : 3 weeks before the robbery”, “Red: the morning after the robbery”, “Pink: 6 months after the robbery”, and finally “White: the robbery”.
However, chronologically, the order of the episodes is: ‘Purple: 24 years before the heist’, ‘Green: 7 years before the heist’, ‘Yellow: 6 weeks before the heist’, ‘Orange: 3 weeks before the heist’ , ‘Blue: 5 days before the breakage’, ‘Red: the morning after the breakage’, ‘Pink: 6 months after the breakage’, and finally ‘White: the breakage’
“All viewers will eventually see all episodes, but the order in which they watch the episodes will affect their perspective on the story, the characters, and the questions and answers at the heart of the heist. How will you experience the colors of Kaleidoscope? – Netflix Press Preview, via Netflix Media Center.
Let’s wait and see if this non-linear episode order for Kaleidoscope gives a significant boost to the online conversation surrounding the series as viewers discuss the shifting outlook.
Kaleidoscope premieres on Netflix on Sunday, January 1.
