FOX’s library on Netflix has significantly been cut down over the past month with April 1st marking the first of what has led to many weeks of its shows being removed from Netflix. American Dad is the next show scheduled for removal as well as Bob’s Burgers but seasons will be removed on different dates. Here’s what’s happening.
As we mentioned, Netflix has decided not to renew its contract with Fox on certain shows. This means that those shows will inevitably be removed. We had a big selection of shows removed from the 1st of April including House, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Firefly but the animated sitcoms have been coming off Netflix in a more sporadic fashion.
It turns out different seasons of American Dad! will be removed on different days for the next month. It starts today with season 10 & 9 of the show no longer available on Netflix streaming. Here’s the schedule for the remaining seasons:
- Season 7 to be removed May 7th, 2017
- Seasons 8 to be removed May 11th, 2017
- Seasons 9 & 10 to be removed May 17th, 2017
Seasons 1 through 6 have yet to be confirmed to be removing although it’s highly likely given the most recent seasons are expiring. It’ll likely to happen all at once as opposed to leaving on seperate days. We’ll update this article as soon as we learn more.
So it’s a sad time for animated sitcoms on Netflix which Fox has been the king of in recent years. Bob’s Burgers is also facing a similar fate on Netflix with it also being removed in sections over the next month or so. Family Guy is the last remaining Fox animated sitcom but as of right now it seems likely that will to be removed.
For streaming alternatives, American Dad! is carried on Hulu although you may find seasons drop in and out.
