Ascension – Picture: Syfy

One of Syfy’s best titles currently on Netflix is currently scheduled to be removed from Netflix in the United States and almost every other Netflix region in November 2019. Here’s why you should revisit the series and when it’s scheduled to leave.

Syfy is mainly known for sci-fi series with smaller budgets to streamers such as Netflix, Amazon or HBO but this 2014 series broke most people’s expectations and delivered a fantastic well-received limited series.

The series follows an expedition to populate a new world that comes under fire when a woman’s murder puts the project at risk.

The series featured a relatively unknown cast including Tricia Helfer, Brian Van Holt, Andrea Roth, Gil Bellows, and Brandon Bell. Ascension was created by Philip Levens.

Now notably Netflix split the three-part limited series up into 6 episodes. Netflix’s versions roughly span 40 minutes apiece whereas the original series aired episodes at an hour and a half each.

The series was added to Netflix in every region of the world in 2016 although the United States has had it streaming since June 18th, 2016.

When is Ascension leaving Netflix?

Currently, all regions of Netflix will be seeing Ascension season 1 removed on November 17th, 2019.

It’ll leave at roughly 12:00 AM PST.

The removal date applies to multiple regions that we’ve gathered thanks to Unogs.

  • Argentina
  • Belgium
  • Brazil
  • Canada
  • Czech Republic
  • France
  • Germany
  • Greece
  • Hong Kong
  • Hungary
  • Iceland
  • India
  • Israel
  • Italy
  • Japan
  • Netherlands
  • Mexico
  • Poland
  • Russia
  • Sweden
  • South Korea
  • United Kingdom

There are also a few other regions that have it listed to expire come November too.

November will see quite a few big titles leave Netflix including Blue Bloods and Last Tango in Halifax.

Where will Ascension stream next?

No future streaming home for Ascension has been announced just yet but given the direction of travel at the moment, we’d expect NBC Universal to keep it back for its upcoming Peacock platform.

The only other location could be of Debmar-Mercury’s choosing who, alongside NBC, distributes the series.

Beyond the US, the series will likely be distributed in a case by case basis.
