Whether you or someone else watched the show, you'll want to delete the viewing progress bar so you can watch the show again - and we'll teach you how.
Why should I reset my Netflix viewing progress?
In your Netflix profile, the red bar below the shows you or others have watched is called viewing progress.This is a handy indicator that lets you know where you left off so you don't have to remember which episode or timestamp you were watching at the time.
However, if you're rewatching a series or watching an episode that someone else has seen, you might be confused about which episode you watched last.What’s more, you’ll continue to watch later episodes, leading to spoilers.
Watching your progress is a feature that's supposed to help you, but it can be inconvenient if it's out of sync with your actual progress.
If you want a smooth viewing experience without having to remember the last episode you watched, you need to reset your viewing progress on Netflix.
