Searching, the online mystery-thriller starring John Cho, has been out for a while, but where can you watch it?

Searching is a 2018 mystery thriller film that, like other films like the horror film Unfriended, takes place entirely on a computer screen. The film was a surprise hit, with many critics praising star John Cho’s performance, as well as the way the film was able to keep things tense and exciting, all from one place.

The official plot is as follows: “After the disappearance of David Kim’s 16-year-old daughter, a local investigation is opened and a detective is assigned to the case. But 37 hours later and without a single lead, David decides to search the one place no one has looked yet, where all the secrets are kept today: his daughter’s laptop.

Due to the critical acclaim, audiences may be wondering where they can watch it and if it’s available to stream on platforms like Netflix. Well, keep reading and we’ll explain what the situation is.

Is Search streaming on Netflix?

No, the search feature is not available to stream on Netflix or any other streaming platform.

However, the movie is available to buy and rent through platforms like Amazon, Apple TV, and Vudu.

There’s currently no official reason why the PG-13 movie isn’t available for streaming, which is strange considering the movie was popular with audiences and critics alike, with a fresh critical score of 92%. and an 88% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes.

Will the search ever make it to streaming?

At this time, there is no set date for when the Quest might join a streaming platform.

But perhaps the fact that Missing, the spiritual sequel to Searching starring Storm Reid, is now available to watch on Netflix, could lead to more demand for Searching to join its spinoff there.
