It’s time for another recap of Netflix Originals that have recently departed the service or will be departing Netflix throughout May 2024.

Please note that, as with all removals, they’re very much subject to change. In addition, just because a Netflix Original departs right now doesn’t mean it can’t be relicensed to Netflix in the future.

For more on the other removals scheduled throughout May 2024 – check out our list of US removals and UK departures.

Netflix Originals Departed in April 2024

There weren’t enough Netflix Originals departing Netflix in various locations to justify a post last month, but we’ll do a quick recap of all the titles that have left so far:

Netflix picked up the exclusive rights to this Malaysian horror sequel without ever picking up the rights to the first movie in most regions! Directed by Syamsul Yusof, the film follows a “Muslim healer who finds his faith tested when he helps a woman locked in battle, body and soul, with a diabolical leader.”

Netflix acquired the movie rights on May 1st, 2019, and is now expiring after being on Netflix for five years. A third movie was thought to be in development but has been MIA since 2020.

Medici (3 Seasons)

Leaving Netflix: May 1st

The historical drama series Medici, which featured some huge talent such as Richard Madden, Dustin Hoffman, Brian Cox, Sean Bean, and Daniel Sharman will be leaving Netflix in full on the first of the month.

Taking place in the 1400s, the series spans many decades, with the first kicking off following the death of Giovanni de’ Medici and his son Cosimo succeeding him as head of the family bank.

You may recall that the first season, titled Masters of Florence, was due to leave Netflix on its own early in 2023 but was subsequently renewed. As we reported at the time, all three seasons will instead now leave together on May 1st.
