Acorn TV – the North American streaming service owned and operated by RLJ Entertainment – is set to become the exclusive US home to the final three Poirot episodes (Elephants Can Remember, The Labours of Hercules and Curtain), which aired in the UK on ITV late last year.

The final three Poirot episodes will get their exclusive US premiere on Acorn TV in August, with Elephants Can Remember launching on August 11th, The Labours of Hercules on August 18th and Curtian: Poirot’s Final Case on August 25th. On August 25th every single episode of Poirot starring David Suchet will be available to stream on Acorn TV.

This marks the first time that Acorn TV has taken exclusive rights to episodes of Poirot in the United States, though the streaming service is the exclusive US home to numerous other international series including Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries and Jack Taylor. Previous episodes of Poirot have initially aired on PBS Masterpiece before being made available on Acorn TV – as will be the case with the first two episodes of the show’s final season, with PBS airing The Big Four on July 27th and Dead Man’s Folly on August 3rd.

“We are thrilled to exclusively offer the final episodes of one of the most iconic series in television history to Acorn TV subscribers. For the last quarter of a century, David Suchet has made an indelible mark on television with his portrayal of Poirot, and these final episodes feature a fitting goodbye to a beloved series”, said Miguel Penella, Chief Executive Officer of RLJ Entertainment.
