Wonder what's leaving Netflix this month? We hate to see it but every now and then, the streaming service decides to get rid of some of its content before introducing a new batch of TV series, movies, and documentaries for us to enjoy (and so we can look forward to all that's new on Netflix). But why? 

Well, Netflix licenses its content from third-party providers and that license only lasts for a limited amount of time which is why they have to get rid of content as soon as its expiration date is up. 

Sure, it all makes sense but that doesn't mean we have to like it. Especially when we have to kiss goodbye to some of our favorite movies. This month, the US version of the platform will be parting ways with movies like The Guest, starring Beauty and the Beast's Dan Stevens and horror, It Comes at Night, as well as seasons 1-4 of AMC drama Halt and Catch Fire. Meanwhile, Netflix UK will be saying goodbye to at least 60 titles including Academy Award-winning films like Titanic, Cold Mountain and The Theory of Everything, which will leave the US platform too. 

But rest assured—some of your faves are returning for a new season, including Emily In Paris which is finally back this month. Here's the full list of everything leaving Netflix this month...
