A&E's highly anticipated 10-part docuseries, Secrets of Playboy season one premiered on January 24, 2022, at 9 p.m. ET/ 8 p.m. C on the cable network. Fortunately, if you've cut the cord, there are still plenty of ways to watch the documentary (and in some cases, for free).
The docuseries features a variety of commentary led by former Playboy mansion employees, Playmates, and even Hugh Hefner's former girlfriends Sondra Theodore and Holly Madison, alleging that the late Playboy tycoon both encouraged and participated in gross misconduct (illicit drug use, rape, prostitution) at the iconic Playboy mansion during his reign.
If you have a cable login, you can watch the series premiere live on A&E.com or the A&E app. If you're a cord-cutter, you can watch Secrets of Playboy on both Sling TV and Philo for free (with a 7-day trial). Unfortunately, only the first two episodes of the docuseries have been released, so depending on when you start your free trial, you may have to renew the subscription to watch the entire series as they become available each Monday.
