Netflix News: July Expirations and Releases


By the end of next week, June will be nothing but a memory. That means you have just under one week to absorb everything on this month’s list of what’s leaving Netflix, and just under one week to look forward to everything that’s coming. As with every monthly update, there’s good news and bad.

This July, we relegate some of our favorites to the Netflix graveyard. Serenity, Notting Hill, and every Star Trek original series film are a few of the titles making the unlucky trip, as are several titles we only received just months ago.

On the other hand, all three Back to the Future movies, Mean Girls, and season three of BoJack Horseman are a few examples of what’s coming our way. Adding to the good news, remember the expiration of that Miramax contract from June’s Netflix News that could have seen up to 400 titles leaving the streaming service? The contract was mostly renewed, so we get to hold on to most of that content until it expires for good. 

Take a look below for some more titles going and coming. Click here for a full list of what’s leaving and here for what’s coming.
