New Year’s Day is all about beginnings and endings. We put all of our successes and failures from the previous year behind us and do our best to start fresh. And Netflix sorta does the same thing (though it happens every month), with a full slate of new releases and a pool of shows and movies that didn’t quite make the cut.

January is going to be another one of those months where the number of removals isn’t all that distressing, but many of the movies and shows being removed are so incredibly popular that there are sure to be more than a few bummed subscribers browsing through Netflix early next year. Some of the biggest removals include The Godfather, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, The Fellowship of the Ring, and the beloved Friday Night Lights.
