The popular BBC drama Death in Paradise could soon be leaving Netflix as it currently carries an expiration date on Netflix scheduled to leave Netflix in August 2019. Here’s what we know about the removal and where it’d likely head to next.
You have just under a month to watch the BBC’s crime drama mystery series Death in Paradise. The anthology styled series sees a British inspector transferred over to Saint-Maries police force where he helps investigates the murders on the island.
10 seasons have been produced for the show and seven of those seasons are on Netflix.
With all that said, many have complained about the quality, particularly in later seasons becoming an issue. The show has since most of its original cast members fall away to work on other projects.
On August 1st, 2019 the series is due to depart and we have every reason to believe that will happen. You can keep up-to-date with all the removals in August 2019 in our leaving soon section.
We were expecting season 8 of Death in Paradise to arrive on Netflix in September.
Why is Death in Paradise leaving Netflix?
The BBC in recent years has pulled some of its older content away from Netflix in favor of their BritBox offering in the States.
Shetland, a series with a similar genre and also from the BBC recently left Netflix. On April 1st, Netflix removed a bunch of BBC content as it continues to do as the BBC chooses to shift its content over to its Britbox offering.
Where will Death in Paradise stream next?
At the moment, it’s wide open as to who will get the license next. Sometimes, after BBC shows have left Netflix they’ve gone to Amazon Prime (like Doctor Who), sometimes Hulu but most likely they’ll land on BritBox or AcornTV. Those last two offerings are where you’ll find the biggest collection of British shows.
Five seasons of Death in Paradise are currently on Netflix in the United Kingdom too but they’re not due to expire to our knowledge.
