Here’s What’s Leaving Netflix in October 2017

     September 20, 2017


It’s time to see what you need to feverishly binge-watch on Netflix before it leaves the streaming service next month. Yes indeed, while Netflix has announced a slew of exciting titles available to stream in October, the streaming service is also pulling a number of noteworthy films and shows as their licenses expire. Most notably, 30 Rock—one of the best sitcoms of all time—is leaving Netflix starting October 1st, as is Friday Night Lights, one of the best drama series of all time. It’s a bummer to be sure, but all the more reason to keep physical media alive. Both shows are available on DVD right now—get on it!

Other TV series leaving Netflix in October include Louie, The Wonder Years, Prison Break, One Tree Hill, Malcolm in the Middle, and seasons 9 through 14 of Family Guy. As Netflix continues to funnel money into original properties, it seems as though more and more library titles are departing. They used to renew pretty much every TV license, but now it seems we’re getting a pretty big exodus in October.

On the feature film side, The Shining is going bye-bye just in time for Halloween, as is David Lynch’s masterful Mullholland Dr., Hellboy, and the Coen Brothers classic Barton Fink.

Check out the full list of departing titles below.
