Netflix News: June Expirations and Releases


June arrives in six days, and with its summery glow, so do some seriously good movies and shows. However, I’ll be upfront with you about what’s leaving right away. First, the sad news: we’re definitely bidding adieu to some Disney classics like The Hunchback of Notre Dame and Mulan. Second, the bad news: we might be losing up to 400 films when the month begins.

On June 1, Miramax—an entertainment company that mostly distributes independent films—ends its five-year contract with Netflix. The company currently offers 400 of its titles on the streaming site, so if Netflix does not renew the contract, most of these could leave the shelf. While not all of Miramax’s titles are universally beloved, there are a few whose loss we would keenly feel. Bridget Jones’s Diary, Finding Neverland, Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, and both volumes of Kill Bill are on the list, which can be found in its enormous entirety here. Because these movies could be renewed, in the list of what’s expiring below, Miramax titles will be denoted with an asterisk (*) to separate them from content that’s guaranteed to be gone.

And don’t worry too much if a renewal is not in the cards. There is plenty to look forward to in June, from all three Jurassic Park films to new seasons of Orange is the New Black and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. 

As always, click here for a complete list of what’s leaving and here for what’s coming.
