Netflix Is Losing A Lot Of Great Movies Next Month

Back to the Future Part II

The start of a new month is always exciting as a Netflix subscriber, as you can be assured that tons of great content is about to flow in for you to watch. Sadly, however, it also comes with the downside of losing movies and shows that were added in the past and have since had their streaming licenses expire with the service. It’s an unfortunate event that none of us look forward to, of course, but we’ve compiled the full list of everything leaving Netflix in December below so that you can catch up on anything you may want to watch before it’s gone.

The one that’ll hurt the most – beloved show The Office – is finally departing the platform so that it can take up residence on NBC’s new streaming service Peacock this coming January. It’s no secret that the series has been one of the most popular for Netflix over the years, making a name for itself as the show that people put on in the background and rewatch hundreds of times over rather than checking out newer content. As such, its exit is a blow to the service and an even bigger blow to subscribers who were comforted by the series for so long.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is also ditching Netflix, though it remains on a handful of other major platforms – for a price. This animated film follows web-slinging teenager Miles Morales as he grapples with a multiverse and a slew of new Spider-People that he must work with to conquer one of his greatest foes. It’s a shame to lose this one, but it’s worth catching before it leaves, especially since it has a sequel on the way in 2022.

Some other painful losses, meanwhile, include the Back to the Future trilogy, all four films in the Indiana Jones series and every season of the serial killer show Dexter. Make it stop!
