Recently, Netflix posted expiry notices for 2 Netflix original series acquired from DreamWorks. Those series, Turbo Fast and Mr. Peabody and Sherman, are currently expected to leave on April 2nd and April 21st, respectively. These upcoming exits inspired us to look through Netflix’s library for other DreamWorks series and attempt to discern when they could also be leaving.

We uncovered an almost bottomless pit of Netflix Originals based on DreamWorks IP. From 2016-2020, the two companies had a fruitful relationship, churning out new episodes of spin-off series and continuations of their popular movies every quarter. The problem is that Netflix is only the distributor of these series for a limited time. DreamWorks (and thus their parent, Universal Studios) retained the rights to the series long-term. That means there will likely be a time when they all leave, which results in a gaping hole in Netflix’s children’s content library.

In 2020, DreamWorks switched partners and Hulu became the benefactor of their never-ending slate of animated series. When Netflix and DreamWorks first collaborated, Universal did not have its own streaming service. Upon the launch of Peacock in 2020, it was a matter of time before Peacock and DreamWorks’ shared corporate parent, Comcast, wanted access to the series depicting their most popular films. Of course, since 2020, Netflix has continued working with DreamWorks Television on new shows like Kung Fu Panda and Gabby’s Dollhouse.

As we’ve covered previously, Netflix Originals don’t always stay on Netflix forever and in the case of all DreamWorks shows, they’ll eventually trickle off the service as we’re now about to see with Turbo Fast and Mr. Peabody and Sherman.

Let’s take the guesswork out of this and share the full list of DreamWorks series on Netflix and their estimated removal date.

Please note that Netflix does not publicly comment on Netflix Original removals beyond including them in their “new on Netflix lists”. This remains speculation and removal dates are subject to contracts and change. This list only applies to the United States of America, and other regions may vary.
