List of series to watch on Netflix before they are gone soon.


September is encroaching upon, and although you may have spent July and August binging on your favorite new seasons of Stranger Things and Orange is the New Black, the new month brings us a round of shows Netflix has announced they are bidding farewell to. So before you dive into any new releases, you may want to check out which shows Netflix plans to remove so you can plan to watch them before it is too late.

The most massive removal scheduled for September 2019 is the seven seasons of the Showtime drama, Californication. Netflix has been streaming the series for several years, and fans of the saucy show will be drawing a blank when it goes bye-bye. The show stars David Duchovny as a famous author battling writer’s block and inner demons. His womanizing ways get him into trouble on a regular basis. Now is the time to jump on all seven seasons over the weekend before it is gone September 1, 2019.


Have you been putting off a binge session of Portlandia or Parenthood? Portlandia is set to be removed September 24th, so you have a little more time to fit in those five seasons next month if you want to join the fans of the cult-comedy favorite, so get in those laughs now while you can. Parenthood is another fan favorite parting with Netflix on September 25, so take some time to connect with the Braverman clan for their six-season run while you can as well.

A string of political and war themed shows, including: Auschwitz: The Nazis and the Final Solution, The Last Nazis, Our World War, and The Wheelchair President will also be removed on September 1st. All you history fans, grab some snacks and sketch out some time on the couch for these politically infused gems before they are gone.

Here is our full list of September titles leaving us, as well as a few on the horizon to be on the look-out for so you can catch up on or reminisce with your favorite classics before they are gone for good.

Everyone’s favorite office comedy staff! From office romance to water cooler shenanigans, there are characters we can all relate to from The Office.


Looking ahead to 2020 and 2021 is no joke, with the loss of two major comedies, Friends and The Office on the horizon, Netflix will need to continue to increase their originals production in order to keep up their content line-ups as more companies like Disney and Warner begin streaming their own titles moving forward.

Which series will you add to your list tonight? Me? I’m hopping right on to Californication ASAP!
