Red City is a police procedural filmed on location in Philadelphia, airing on Netflix, and based on the series of detective novels written by Richard Montanari.

The series title is borrowed from the unrelated 1909 Silas Weir Mitchell novel The Red City, and is in that context a reference to the red brick used for many of Philadelphia's buildings in the eighteenth century. Within the context of the series, the title refers to the blood of Philadelphia's many murder victims.

The series aired 108 episodes episodes over nine seasons, from 2012 to 2021.
