What’s Leaving Netflix in January 2020

The first month of the year for 2020 will see some huge titles leave Netflix including fan-favorite sitcoms including Friends and Frasier. 

As many have been dreading, the month where Friends departs Netflix is here. The entire series is scheduled for removal on New Year’s Day.

Also looking at January 1st, we’re scheduled to see Red Vs. Blue, a popular video game based series and the remainder of Frasier removed too. You may also spot National Geographic’s One Strange Rock is too scheduled for removal likely earmarked for release on Disney+ in the near future.

We’re also expecting at some point to hear the fate of Carsey-Werner’s That 70s Show from Netflix throughout January 2020.

A quick reminder in case you don’t know how Netflix removals work. We roughly hear of Netflix removals roughly 30 days before they’re due to depart. In addition, we also get an additional list towards the end of the month released by Netflix themselves. We then get further removals throughout the month.
