Cleopatra in Space was initially planned to debut on Universal Kids in the United States, a channel which hosts many DreamWorks cartoons. Later, it was emerged in January 2020 that the series would instead be released at launch on Peacock, NBCUniversal's streaming service. The first five episodes were released as a preview on the streaming service on April 15, 2020, but only exclusively for Xfinity customers. Later, the series officially released on July 15 to all customers nationwide, with the first 12 episodes (excluding "Quarantine" for unknown reasons). On November 19, 2020, the next six episodes were added to Peacock.

Prior to the scheduled release in the United States, the series premiered worldwide on November 25, 2019 on DreamWorks Channel in Southeast Asia. Along with the original English version, an Arabic and Indonesian dub are also broadcast. Later, the series would premiere in Poland on Teletoon+ on February 15, 2020 with a Polish dub. The series was then made available in South Africa on Showmax by February 23, 2020, which included all 26 episodes of season 1. Similarly, all 26 episodes were made available on the Viaplay service in Scandinavia on June 5, 2020, featuring Danish, Norwegian, Swedish, and Finnish dubs.

On May 1, 2020, the entire first season of Cleopatra in Space was released on Globoplay with a Brazilian Portuguese dub. On August 4, 2020, the series premiered on ABC Me in Australia, and the first season finished its run on the 29th. In September 2020, the show began airing on the Disney Channel in Russia with the name "Клеопатра в космосе." Then in October, in the UK, the show began airing on Sky One as part of a partnership with NBC Universal. Currently, the Sky One website allows subscribers to their "Sky Go" service to watch 25 episodes, but not episode 6, "Quarantine." When asked about this, Sky UK stated that this was not included because of the "licensing on the episode."
