If you were hoping 2020 might be the year that Netflix finally stops removing content from its streaming service, I am sad to report that it will continue unabated into the new year. Thankfully, the list of shows and movies being removed in January isn’t especially long, but there are a few gems worth seeking out.
The two that immediately stood out to me were The Fighter and Short Term 12, both of which received countless accolades and should absolutely be in your queue if you haven’t seen them. We’re also losing all four seasons of IFC’s Maron, which is the show starring Marc Maron about Marc Maron’s life. If you like Marc Maron, you’ll probably like it too. This is also a great time to watch Zombieland, with the sequel having just come out.
Here are the ten best movies and shows Netflix is dumping next month, and the date on which they will be dumped. If you don’t watch them before then, you might never get to see them on Netflix at all:
- The Fighter | January 12th
- Maron: Season 1-4 | January 12th
- Short Term 12 | January 17th
- American Psycho | January 31st
- Grease | January 31st
- Panic Room | January 31st
- Revolutionary Road | January 31st
- Something’s Gotta Give | January 31st
- Spartacus: Blood and Sand | January 31st
- Zombieland | January 31st
