I have tried naming the folder numerous options, but Kodi seems to default to Patriot from 2015 or even Patriot games if I put in Patriot (2017).

I've tried changing it to other years as well, but no luck. Any suggestions?

I'm not able to figure out how to edit a post, but I've tried the following naming conventions
Patriot 2018
Patriot 2015
Patriot 2016
Patriot 2017
Patriot (2017)
Patriot (2017) (en)
The Patriot.2017

Anything besides 2015 seems to default to a Patriot Games tv show that also debuted in 2017.

I'm looking for the amazon series, Patriot, which technically had its first episode in 2015, but TVDB has the 2017 next to its title

Hello fella, I had the same issue myself just then, call it Patriot (2017) (2015) (en) :)

Can you input the thetvdb ID Number, 323267 in this case, anywhere ? I know you can do this in Plex as I have to do this occasionally myself.

If a manual override fails, use a Parsing NFO: https://kodi.wiki/view/NFO_files#Parsing_nfo
