Each month, Netflix adds a bunch of third-party TV shows and movies to augment its original content. But what it gives with one hand, it invariably takes away with the other.
Here are all the titles that will be disappearing over the next few weeks. You’ve still got a few days to watch our personal recommendations – check ’em out while you still can!
The following list – which comes courtesy of New On Netflix – consist of movies and TV shows that Netflix pays a licencing fee for. (All Netflix Originals are safe for the time being.)
The good news is that Netflix appears to have revised its ‘scorched earth’ policy – there are only 21 titles leaving the service this month, compared to more than 130 in March. With that said, you can expect more titles to be quietly removed before the month ends. (Look out for an update in the last week of April.)
Here are all the movies and TV shows that are currently on the chopping block. We’ve included the expiration dates so you know precisely how long you have to watch them and trailers to our personal recommendations.

If you’ve only got time to watch a few of these movies, we’d go for the Brad Pitt-starring WW2 action flick Fury, the cheesy-but-fun Pacific Rim and the classic ’70s western Jeremiah Johnson (that overused GIF of Robert Redfern smiling and nodding comes from this movie, trivia fans.)
