What's Leaving Netflix in August

These great movies and shows are leaving the streaming service next month

Tim Surette, Krutika Mallikarjuna

Some might view movies and shows expiring from Netflix as a downer, but I consider it to be more like graduation. Netflix is their mother, raising these movies and shows through their formative streaming years, and shedding a tear as they grow up, move out, and forge their own future. Oh wait, that's now how it works at all. Netflix, the king of streaming, IS the goal for an older movie to maintain its longevity. Once it's off Netflix, it's essentially abandoned to the ether, never to heard from again -- OK, that might be a little dramatic, but still, there's a lot going out next month as Netflix's new titles roll in for August.  

On TV side, the biggest loss is the hit British teen drama Skins, which is likeEuphoria, but set in suburban England -- and trust me it's good enough to make you want to watch seven seasons in in a week and half (we believe in you!). We're also losing some of our favorite movie franchises in August including Bad Boys and The Karate Kid (the latter of which is pretty bad timing, considering the spin-off series Cobra Kai is migrating from YouTube to Netflix next month as well), along with some indie darlings like Blue is the Warmest Color, which you will need to binge before the month is out.
