These past two months have been outliers of sorts for Netflix in terms of the content leaving the streaming service. In April, only movies were on the list of departures — not a single TV show. May is a bit more balanced when it comes to the split between shows and movies, but a huge percentage of the content being removed is made for kids.
If you’re a parent who occasionally depends on Netflix during long car rides, or you’re just a young person who enjoys content aimed at young people, you’re probably going to find a lot of your favorite shows and movies are no longer on the service by the end of May. Some of the high-profile removals include High School Musical, Camp Rock and all four seasons of Disney XD’s Phineas and Ferb. It’s something of an exodus for kid-friendly content.
There are also several blockbusters on the list, such as GoodFellas, Field of Dreams, The Hurt Locker and Ocean’s Eleven. If you haven’t seen Ocean’s Eleven in a while, it may be worth watching before Ocean’s 8 comes out.
