Since Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy became revered globally for bravely leading his country during the invasion from Russia, interest in his prior work as an actor and comedian has also piqued.

In particular, his 2015 sitcom “Servant of the People” has seen a rise in sales, as international broadcasters seek to air the series. Some of the networks that have recently licensed the show are Channel 4 in the UK, MBC in the Middle East, ANT 1 in Greece and PRO TV in Romania.

But, is there a way to watch “Servant of the People” in the United States?

As of March 16, the show is back on Netflix, where it originally streamed before Zelenskyy began his bid for the presidency.

If you’re in the U.S., you can also find episodes of the show on YouTube.

“Servant of the People,” ironically, follows Zelenskyy as Vasiliy Petrovich Goloborodko, a high school teacher who becomes president after a student’s video of him denouncing corruption in Ukraine goes viral. Produced by Zelenskyy’s Studio Kvartel 95, “Servant of the People” ran for three seasons beginning in 2015 and also spawned a spinoff movie.

The series ended in 2019 when Zelenskyy actually ran for president — funnily enough under a political party of the same name. “It’s an amazing story really,” Malmborg told TheWrap. “I believe he’s grown to be a very strong leader for his country.”
