It’s the beginning of another month, which means we’ve got to say our heartbreaking goodbyes to some of our favourites.
You know the feeling: you log into your Netflix account only to discover that something you’ve been binge-watching will be .
Sadly, on this occasion, a much-loved Jack Black film and a critically acclaimed The CW comedy drama are on the Netflix chopping block.
This week, the home-viewing giant announced plans to curtail the phenomenon, which has arguably defined the last decade of TV viewing.
As much as there are changes under way behind the scenes at Netflix, the changes to its catalogue of movies and TV shows are constant.
So, let’s a look at what’s leaving Netflix this month.
Which movies are leaving Netflix UK in February 2023?
Already this month, 21 movies have been cut from Netflix’s catalogue. They include: Amelie (2001), Collateral (2004), Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986), The King’s Speech (2010), Meet the Parents (2000), and School of Rock (2003).
Later this month, high profile departures are: Brokeback Mountain (2005) which leaves on February 5, Peter Rabbit (2018) which leaves on February 9, The Bad Education Movie (2015) and Dear John (2010) which both leave on February 14.
Two days later, on February 16, yet more movies will leave Netflix. They include: About Time (2013), Antz (1998), Big Fat Liar (2002), Darkest Hour (2017), Happy Gilmore (1996), The Last House on the Left (2009), O Brother Where Are Thou? (2000), and Split (2017).
