It seems like just yesterday many were heartbroken by the cancellation of “The Office” on Netflix, but more are set to be gone. November is here, which means more of shows and movies are scheduled to get cut from Netflix throughout the month. Do not fret, however, VALLEY is here to give you the list of titles you need to watch before it’s too late. Here comes your perfect excuse for a month-long binge session.
A few shows and movies were scheduled for disappearance throughout the month and have already experienced their demise. “Bucket List,” starring Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman got removed on Nov. 4 and “Fruitvale Station,” Billie Eilish’s favorite movie (according to her annual Vogue video), was just taken off on Nov. 11. Though these movies are long gone, you still have a chance to watch many Netflix staples before Nov. 30, the date that brings much termination to some of our favorites.
Glee (Seasons 1-6)
All seasons of “Glee” are leaving at the end of the month. If you fall into the niche category of people who love cheesy musical high school dramas, you better turn on “Glee” right now, so you have time to experience all the magic that comes with the show before it’s gone.
Are You The One (Seasons 1-2)
This reality show takes place on a tropical island and covers 20 beautiful contestants as they try to match up with the pre-determined “one” for them. The group goes through different tests to see if they can end up with the guest that was most compatible with them according to research done before the start of the show.
Million Dollar Baby
“Million Dollar Baby” is a movie that takes you on the journey of an amateur girl becoming a female fighter. Starring Clint Eastwood, Morgan Freeman and Hilary Swank, the journey shown throughout the film is perfect if you need a motivational and tear-jerking movie.
School of Rock
Jack Black. Need we say more? “School of Rock” is the story of a burnout guitarist turned elementary school music teacher who strives to make his private school students become rock stars in order to win the Battle of the Bands concert.
Letters to Juliet
Taking place in Verona, Italy, “Letters to Juliet” is the story of Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) as she finds herself inspired by the letters that are sent to Shakespeare’s Juliet Capulet by Verona’s heartbroken lovers. Her interest is particularly sparked by one letter, written by an older woman named Claire. Sophie is so inspired by this letter that she takes it upon herself to find Claire, which then motivates Claire to find her long-lost lover from back in the day.
Why do shows keep disappearing on us?
It seems like we have had to mourn the loss of many of our favorite shows recently, which is all due to licensing agreements. Netflix knows what we love to watch and aims to keep us as happy and entertained as possible.
The Help Center on Netflix’s website says they consider four things when considering certain titles leaving the streaming service: Are the rights to the title still available? How popular is it? How does much it cost? And the last question is an analysis of seasonal and regional factors. If the renewal of a show or movie is agreed upon; the title stays; however, if it is not, that is when we have to say goodbye. No matter what, Netflix says they “strive to keep the titles you want to watch.”
