Unfortunately, the show has not been released on Netflix yet, but BuddyTV will keep you updated if and when that changes. 

This article discusses what the show is about, its amazing hosts, and if season three will be released anytime soon. 

About “Kids Say the Darndest Things”

Reimagined, revived, and really funny, “Kids Say The Darndest Things” is a classic show presented by Tiffany Haddish. Based on its timeless format, Tiffany showcases her unmatched comedic talents and interacts with real kids from across the country. 

This reboot version is eccentric and amusing. It’s a real joy to witness Tiffany having unrehearsed talks with kids and learning about their raw, innocent, and unfiltered opinions and perspectives about various topics — including families, religion, and the government.  It really is surprising to hear some of the worldly or outlandish things that can come from the mouths of babes. 

There are two books based on the title “Kids Say The Darndest Things,” one by original host Bill Cosby and the other by Art Linkletter. The latter is currently in stock and can be purchased on Amazon. Here’s a synopsis of the episodes (eps) across both seasons.
