Netflix removals on the rise during October


Every month, Netflix is adding more movies and television shows to their streaming site. However, some user favorites are also taken away. Movies that will be removed this month include “The Shining,” “Titanic,” “Million Dollar Baby” and many more.

In terms of TV, already gone from the service are the entirety of “Malcolm in the Middle,” “One Tree Hill” and “Friday Night Lights.”

Earlier this year, rumors went around stating that episodes of the hit TV show “The Office” would be removed from the site which had saddened many fans. But Netflix was able to respond to these rumors in a humorous way using their twitter account to share memes and quotes of the main character Michael Scott including one of his famous lines “Fool me once, strike one. But fool me twice… strike three.”

Projected to leave in the coming weeks are two “American Horror Story” seasons, both “Freak Show” and “Hotel.” Later in the month, fivve seasons of “Family Guy” and six seasons of “Bones” are up for renewal and expected to make their exit.

November boasts a much smaller list of titles: only nine are set to be either renewed or deleted. However, fans will be disappointed to hear that the entirety of “How I Met Your Mother” will be gone mid-November.

Not all is lost- a slew of Netflix originals, mainstream movies, and television shows are set to be released very soon. October will see three Netflix original films added to the mix: “The Meyerowitz Stories” starring Adam Sandler and Ben Stiller, a screen adaptation of Stephen King’s “1922” and “Wheelman” will all be available by month’s end. Both “Miss Congeniality” and its sequel, “Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous” have already been added, as have “Eyes Wide Shut” and “Tommy Boy.” There truly is something for everyone.

After all, we need to remind ourselves that there is light at the end of the tunnel. With the anticipated second season of “Stranger Things” being added in late October as well as the first season of “Mindhunter,” a series about two FBI agents that research criminal science and the psychology of serial killers and other criminals being added on Friday the 13th, we will still have some scary shows to watch while bundling up and drinking pumpkin spice lattes and eating candy corn.
