    1. Okay, now I'm pissed at Netflix.

      I'm more than willing to bet Family Guy is next. I might actually cancel and go to whoever gets it.

    2. If Futurama is gone then I might be gone too.


    3. I'm keeping my eye on both of those shows - checking individual seasons in case they expire them piecemeal. So far, they seem to be safe.

    4. Bring back all seasons of American Dad!!!! If Family Guy gets taken off I'm also dropping Netflix.

  2. It appears as though the recent renewal of Hatfields and McCoys (2012) didn't last long. According to MaFt's site, it disappeared today as did Chesapeake Shores Season 1 (2016) which had just appeared on the last day of March.

    1. I'd added Chesapeake Shores to my list when it arrived (was looking forward to seeing Jesse Metcalfe in something again after the Dallas reboot) so just checked and you're right. It's gone all of a sudden. WTF?

  3. New on Netflix claims Boss has been renewed and is not expiring on May 14 but I am still seeing an expiration date when I look at My List. Any update I don't know about?


    1. Hi Wellesley72, are you talking about New On Netflix USA, MaFt's site? Not sure what you mean by "claims Boss has been renewed." Are you referring to the fact that their latest "Last Chance" page no longer includes Boss under the 5/15 expiration date? That could just mean that the "capture" uNoGS runs every day failed to pick up Boss. This has happened a number of times before. (The New On Netflix USA site gets its info from uNoGS.)

      I still see the expiration date on My List, and also at the beginning of the show in the upper left hand corner. If there is something actually saying Boss has been renewed (rather than a logical assumption from its absence under the expiration date on New On Netflix USA), please send me the url where you saw this claim. Otherwise, I wouldn't be too optimistic.

  4. Carol, it was a tweet yesterday from MaFt. I tweeted back that I didn't think it was true but haven't checked my twitter feed today.


    1. Boss is back on both uNoGS and New On Netflix USA, so it was some kind of a glitch with the capture yesterday.


    2. P.S. That means Boss is still scheduled to expire; last day to watch is 5/14.

    1. Wow, Invincible was available for a whole three months!

      Two thumbs up, Netflix.

    2. Sinister as well. that seems to be netflix's MO these days, these 3-month licenses (and being sinister).

  6. This comment has been removed by a blog administrator.

    1. Just want to note that the press release I looked at ( only lists seasons 1-3 of Kickin It and seasons 1-5 of Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown, but I think this is a typo on their part, since Parts Unknown is showing an expiration date for the whole series on my list.


    2. Thanks for these, Nica. I looked at another site (, and they list the same seasons as your site for Kickin' It and Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown, so if it's incorrect, it looks like it's on Netflix's end. Sounds right.

      I agree with you that the listing of those seasons is an error, and that the whole shows will expire on the dates we have on our list. I checked every season of both shows, and they all have the dates we have. Until I see something different, I'm going to leave things as they are. Thanks for pointing out this confusing info.

  7. For anyone still trying to find all of the Smithsonian Channel shows, they have them listed on their website:
    I don't have time right now to go through them all to see if they're on Netflix and marked for expiration, but the resource is there for anyone who wants it.

  8. This is more of an inquiry than a proper submission.

    I'm wondering if anyone has seen a notification for "The Twilight Zone (Original Series)"

    I ask because, while I have not observed a notification myself (checked all seasons) the series seems to be listed for expiration on APRIL 30TH on this site:

    But instantwatcher appears to be the only site currently listing it (I've checked at least half a dozen) and as mentioned I have yet to see any notification on netflix.

    I'll continue to keep my eye on this and report back, but anyone else watching the series may want to do the same. Thanks.


    1. Hi iwilliam, thanks for writing. I think I know what's going on; I've seen this before on instantwatcher. What comes up there as expiring is a single episode of The Twilight Zone: Season 3, The Mirror, episode 6, from 1960. But that episode is not expiring on April 30. What is expiring on April 30 (last day to watch 4/29) is the movie, The Mirror, from 2014. This is a quality control issue at instantwatcher. I have sent them email in the past when the same situation occurred, but never heard anything back, and the error was never corrected. The good news is that The Twilight Zone is safe for now.

    2. Phew! Thanks so much for clearing that up!

      I'm not too familiar with instantwatcher. (Prior to discovering this site, I primarily used unogs and Though I was wondering why that page on instantwatcher was listing a specific episode from season 3. Perhaps their listings are automated, hence the mix-ups?

      Thanks again, for the info. And for the site! This seems to be one of the most complete and up-to-date resources I've seen so far. I'll contribute when I'm able.

      On that note... In the FAQ it's mentioned that netflix issues a press release in the latter half of the month, which lists expiring titles. Is this normally found on their media center page?

      ...because I'm not seeing any listings, even going back into March and February. Perhaps I'm looking in the wrong place?

  9. Oh, and I just found a rather large list of titles that are leaving (and coming) now through the end of May:

    Looks like this article was published today, expiring titles listed through 5/26


    1. The list you found is the press release! If you compare that list to our master list, we now have all the leaving titles they show, plus a bunch more. The reason Nica's list doesn't have everything on the press release is because we already had a lot of the titles, so she listed only those that we didn't yet have. That's how we always do it here. You'll also notice that the press release doesn't have the years after the titles. Nica added those herself - thank you, Nica!

      The press release goes out to lots of online publications that have an Entertainment section. But they don't all put it up at the same time. I think some of our readers are notified on Facebook that the monthly press release of new and leaving titles is out, but I don't know about this firsthand. Anyone else have information about getting a heads up for the press release?

    2. You can Google Netflix Fansided, and you will arrive at a site that allows you to sign up for a daily newsletter about all things Netflix. When the list of new and expiring titles (neither of which is complete) is announced by Netflix, the information will show up in the daily newsletter.

  10. Last day 5/4:
    Epic of Everest (1924) silent, documentary of old Tibet

  11. Highly recommended. Interesting travelog of the trip to get there. Not easy back in 1923. Covers the expedition where Mallory and Irving disappeared.
    Actually this is Noel's second film made at Everest. I haven't seen the first.


  12. 4/30
    The Secret Village (2013)

  13. More Smithsonian Channel documentaries! Last day to watch is 4/30:

    History in HD: The Last Bomb (2009)
    History in HD: Shooting Iwo Jima (2009)
    Hitler's Riches (2014)
    Hindenburg: The Untold Story (2010)
    The Hunt for Bin Laden (2012)

    Hunt for the Super Predator (2014)
    Leopard Fight Club (2014)

    The Incredible Bionic Man (2013)

    I also found three Smithsonian documentaries/series that are *not* showing up as expiring, but you never know if they will just disappear along with the other ones. So just in case:

    Mystery Files - 1 Season (2012)
    The Teacher Who Defied Hitler (2013)
    9/11: Stories in Fragments (2011)

  14. I forgot to add these to my post above! Sorry. Here are even more Smithsonian documentaries. Last day to watch is 4/30:

    Nazi Temple of Doom (2013)
    The Gospel of Jesus's Wife (2014)

    One more *not* officially expiring but once again, who knows:

    Secrets: The Sphinx (2013)


    1. Thanks for all the Smithsonian titles, Anonymous - great job!

      Note for everyone: For the four titles that do not have expiration notices: I'm not going to put these on the list, so if you want to watch them, please note them from Anonymous's two comments, above.

  15. Last day 5/4
    Glory Road (2006)

  16. Yet another from Smithsonian Channel:

    Blondie’s New York (2014)

  17. Another for the list.

    A Man Called Peter (1955)

  18. Following are the remaining 4/30 titles, from

    Baby Blues (2013)

    Death Beach (2012)
    Hip Hop: The Furious Force of Rhymes (2012)
    Malaysia 370: The Plane that Vanished (2014)

  19. 5/24
    Red vs. Blue (13 seasons/ episodes)

  20. Also added to the list today, from

    The Amazing Wizard of Paws (2015)

  21. 5/25

    Arrested Development (2013)

    1. Even Season 4 (the Netflix "original")?


    2. Apparently. The notice is up for the whole show. Will Season 4 be "renewed"? We'll have to wait and see.

    3. I see the notice on UNOGs and on my iPad but I can't believe that Netflix only had a 4-year first window on Season 4 for which they paid the production costs. In fact, I can't believe that Netflix produced Season 4 without first getting a long license agreement for Seasons 1-3 since Season 4 doesn't make a whole lot of sense without those seasons. I also can't believe that Netflix would make a Season 5, as it keeps saying it wants to, if it couldn't stream the first three seasons. Call me hopeful that all four seasons get extended (but of course I also thought Netflix would keep Doctor Who).

  22. Also going on the list today, from

    Angels Crest (2011)
    This Isn’t Funny (2015)
