Netflix’s newest original series, “Kaleidoscope,” begins streaming on January 1st. This unique heist drama features a non-linear story, so you can watch the episodes in any order leading up to the finale.
The show focuses on a group of thieves who conspire to rob a vault worth $7 billion. To finish the complex heist, they will have to deal with conflicts within the team and external threats such as the FBI. The plot spans 25 years, with parts of the story before, during, and after the robbery.

“Kaleidoscope” stars Giancarlo Esposito, Buzz Vega, Rufus Sewell, Jai Courtney, Tati Gabriel, Peter Mark Kendall, Rosalynn Elpay, Nyesha Noor, Jordan Mendoza, Sojung Son, Max Casella, and Himki Madeira. The series comes from creator Eric Garcia, who is best known for writing the 2002 novel Matchstick Men.
How to watch “Kaleidoscope”
You can watch “Kaleidoscope” exclusively on Netflix starting January 1. All eight episodes of the series will be available to stream on that date.
The basic Netflix plan costs $7 per month with ads or $10 per month without ads. This option provides 720p streaming quality. For 1080p streaming, you can upgrade to the Standard plan at $15.49 per month. For the best quality, we recommend the Premium plan, which offers 4K streaming for $20 a month.
The Netflix app is available on most connected devices, including smart TVs, phones, tablets, and streaming players from every major brand.
Can you watch “Kaleidoscope” in any order?
“Kaleidoscope” features a non-linear story designed to allow members to watch the episodes in any order to the end. Each episode is named after a color, and Netflix will randomly generate a viewer order in which to stream the series. However, the final episode will always be the episode titled “White”.
Although the episodes navigate the show’s timeline, they are designed to inform each other, allowing different viewing orders to create slightly different audience experiences.
Here is a summary of the episode titles:
- Yellow: 6 weeks before theft
- Green: 7 years before the theft
- Blue: 5 days before the robbery.
- “Violet: 24 Years Before the Robbery”
- Orange: 3 weeks before the theft
- “Red: The Morning After the Robbery”
- Pink: 6 months later
- White: theft
Is Kaleidoscope based on a true story?
According to creator Eric Garcia, “Kaleidoscope” is very loosely inspired by “something that might have happened”. After Hurricane Sandy, the basement of DTCC was flooded with $70 billion in bonds, and Garcia thought that could come off as a clever idea to cover up a heist, which helped inspire the show’s plot.
