November is shaping up to be a big month for Netflix removals as yet another high profile series is due to depart the service. Continuum is the next on the chopping block. Here’s when Continuum will be leaving Netflix plus we’ll touch on some reasons as to why you should watch the show.
The sci-fi series comes from Canada and Showcase who also streams their Lost Girl series on Netflix as well as Queer as Folk and Haven.
Continuum is a highly rated (7.6/10 on IMDb) and ambitious action sci-fi thriller series than ran between 2012 before wrapping up in 2015. The series was first added on Netflix in 2013 with new seasons being added weekly.
The series was about a detective from 2077 sent back in time to the present day looking for a criminal. For those who think that premise sounds familiar, it’s because it’s reminiscent of Netflix’s Travelers which sadly ended last year.
When and why is Continuum leaving Netflix?
All four seasons of the show are due to leave Netflix on November 15th in the United States.
The reason for the removal is that Netflix or Showcase has decided not to renew the streaming license going forward. If Netflix is the reason for removal, it’s likely because not enough people are watching to justify the renewal and Showcase could’ve also sold the rights elsewhere.
Is the removal final? It seems to be. In recent months, we’ve seen some fantastic TV series leave Netflix as the streaming service spends its money more wisely or in some cases, have content providers pull their content for their own services.
Also leaving in November 2019 is the British hit Last Tango in Halifax and CBS’s Blue Bloods.
No other streaming service currently carries Continuum at present but that doesn’t necessarily mean one doesn’t pick it up in the future.
Other regions of Netflix still carry the series including Australia, South Korea, Singapore, Israel, India, Israel, South Africa and Poland.
Netflix in the UK was the first region to lose Continuum which lost it back in June 2019.
