One of the things that you have to know about Netflix, is that titles come and movies go. Which means that you want to make sure that you catch one of your must-watch shows or films before they are gone. So, I put together this list of 13 new releases on Netflix that you may want to make some time to watch.
Sooner, rather than later.
This list of Netflix new releases isn’t necessarily all encompassing. Make sure you take a look at related titles when you do find something you enjoyed.
Why do TV shows and movies leave Netflix?
According to Netflix, they get licensing rights for a limited period time. When that time ends, they have to renew the license. When a license is about to expire, Netflix then reviews the show or movie to determine if they should renew it.
They consider factors like popularity, availability of rights, and other seasonal factors.
How do I find out if a TV show or movie is leaving Netflix?
Netlix displays end dates on shows and movies that will be leaving in the next 30 days. You can see it on the details page of the show or movie, or on the “My List” section if you have it set to manual.
Request TV shows or movies
If you would like to suggest a show or movie to Netflix, they have a form that you can fill out with your requests. Hopefully you can see your request on a future list of new releases on Netflix.
