Why do TV shows and movies leave Netflix?

Netflix licenses TV shows and movies from studios around the world. Though we strive to keep the titles you want to watch, some titles do leave Netflix because of licensing agreements.

Whenever a TV show or movie license is expiring, we consider things such as:

  • If the rights to the title are still available

  • How popular it is in a region, and how much it costs to license

If a TV show or movie is renewed, it remains on Netflix for you to enjoy. If a title isn't renewed, we'll give you a heads up when it's about to leave.
