Everything leaving Netflix in May 2022

Want to know what's leaving Netflix US & UK in May 2022? It might upset you so consider this a warning...

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 a biggie: Uncut Gems (or Uncut Jahms rather) will be leaving the platform on May 25th. Meanwhile, the UK version of the streamer will also be kissing goodbye to favourites including romcoms like Friends with Benefits and Bridesmaids, so it's not the best month for movie lovers! 

But rest assured, we still have the likes of Selling Sunset (opens in new tab) and Bling Empire (opens in new tab), which is back for season two this month, to keep us busy in May. 

Here's the full list of everything leaving Netflix this month...
