Grimm, a popular NBC series is set to leave Netflix in several regions around the world in January 2020. Here’s why the series is departing, where it may end up next for the regions that have lost the series and more. 

The fantasy TV series ran on NBC in the United States between 2011 and 2017 is about a detective at a police station who finds out he’s a hunter of supernatural beings and forces.

All six seasons are scheduled to leave Netflix internationally on January 5th, 2020 (or January 6th depending on timezone).

In total, 32 regions of Netflix that are streaming Grimm are set to lose the fantasy drama on January 5th, 2020. Some of the regions include:

  • Netflix UK
  • Australia
  • Mainland Europe
  • Mexico
  • Turkey
  • Thailand
  • South Korea

It could simply be the case that the series is up for renewal. Back in 2016, this happened to Netflix in the United Kingdom where three seasons departed on January 4th before being added again almost a year later.

January is always a big month for Netflix removals. Netflix in the US is seeing quite a few big titles leave including Frasier, Friends, Maron and as we reported yesterday, Spartacus.

Why is Grimm leaving Netflix?

Simply, the contract for Grimm has come up and at least at the time of publishing it doesn’t look like Netflix is going to renew.

Will Grimm arrive/leave Netflix in the United States?

If you’re a US resident, you may be wondering what this article is even talking about given Grimm isn’t streaming. That’s because Grimm has a permanent current home on Amazon Prime. We don’t know how long Grimm will remain on Amazon Prime but given the general direction of NBC content being saved for the upcoming NBC service, Peacock, that’s where we envisage the series ending up in the States.
