Those waking up today thinking they’d continue their binge watch of Everybody Loves Raymond on Netflix was no doubt very disappointed the learn that every season of Everybody Loves Raymond has been removed from the Netflix library in the United States.
Everybody Love Raymond is a much loved and much sought after American sitcom produced by CBS. Over its nine seasons spanning from 1996 to 2005, it managed to clock up 210 episodes. Up until today, Everybody Loves Raymond had been streaming on Netflix for multiple years but as yearly contract renewals come into play, it seems Netflix decided to skip (or vice versa) on a new deal that would extend the streaming availability of the show.
Although it has left Netflix, what CBS’s intentions with regards to its future streaming is yet to be known. As of right now, it’s yet to show up as part of the Hulu lineup which is where we expected it to end up given that CBS owns a portion of Hulu. We’re also not seeing it join the Amazon Prime lineup either. What is likely, is that over the coming weeks, we’ll find out the new home of Everybody Loves Raymond. If I was a betting man I’d say it’s either going exclusive on CBS’s own ‘All Access’ platform or join Hulu.
The show is the first of many high-profile shows to leave in September 2016 including the likes of Fringe and ALIAS which are scheduled to leave later in the month. It’s also worth pointing out that Everybody Loves Raymond isn’t the highest profile title to leave the service in 2016, as that title is awarded to Doctor Who which later announced it was going exclusive on Prime.
As soon as we hear where Everybody Loves Raymond will end up, we’ll let you know here on What’s on Netflix.
