Titles Leaving Netflix in May 2020

Once again, we’re here to chart all of the removals from Netflix throughout the month of May 2020. Below is an ever-updating list of titles leaving Netflix in May 2020.

In April, Netflix lost plenty of movies as well as NBC series American Odyssey, the BBC’s Residue and the Netflix Original series, Chewing Gum.

If you’re new to Netflix and don’t know why content is removed, here’s a quick rundown. Most of Netflix’s content is licensed rather than owned by the streaming company. That means Netflix pays x amount of money to stream a show or movie for a certain period of time. Once that period of time comes up, Netflix and the other party agree on a fee to keep it streaming or lets it go.


Full list of what’s leaving Netflix in May 2020

Please note: all removal dates are subject to change.
