Wonder what's leaving Netflix US 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 platform will be parting ways with some major blockbusters including  Brokeback Mountain, My Week with Marilyn, and Julie & Julia. Netflix is  sadly also getting rid of some popular TV shows such as season 10 of Hoarders and Sherlock

But rest assured—some of your recent faves are staying put, including Ginny and Georgia and  Firefly Lane. Here's the full list of everything leaving Netflix this month...
