Important Links


To run SickChill you will need Python 3.8+, preferably 3.11 or newer. PyPy (python 3.7-3.9) 7.8.x+ is also supported.

Important notes on switching from other forks

Before using this with your existing database (sickbeard.db) please make a backup copy of it and delete any other database files such as cache.db and failed.db if present. We HIGHLY recommend starting out with no database files at all to make this a fresh start but the choice is at your own risk.

Huge thanks to JetBrains for providing "All Products Pack" licenses free of charge for SickChill developers as part of their support of OSS.
