The PBS NOVA library is once again getting shaken up on July 1st, 2020 with some of the best documentaries produced by PBS set to leave Netflix US for good. Here’s a rundown of a few of the best ones and the full list of documentaries leaving Netflix on July 1st, 2020.

For those who aren’t familiar with PBS’s NOVA series, each episode focuses on a brand new topic which all are typically rooted in science whether that be chemistry, biology or physics.

The series itself has been running on PBS since 1974 and has over 900 episodes in total under its belt. Season 47 aired on PBS in February 2020 most of the episodes set to leave Netflix on July 1st are from season 45 that aired in 2018.

Netflix US, as well as Netflix Australia, Canada, and the United Kingdom, will all see the NOVA documentaries leave on July 1st.

The PBS library has been slowly changing on Netflix over the past year with another big documentary library from the US broadcaster leaving earlier this year.

One thing we should stress is that we could simply be seeing a PBS refresh on Netflix. The same thing occurred last year with a big shift of older titles off of Netflix and newer ones taking their place.

With that said, no new NOVA documentaries have currently been announced for release in July 2020 thus far.
