Netflix is cleaning house again. Over the next few days, a bunch of licenced content will be leaving the service, possibly never to return. This includes cult faves like Guy Ritchie's Snatch, the critically acclaimed TV series Weeds and Fargo, Swiss Army Man and a bunch of anime. Here's everything about to be deleted.
The list below comes courtesy of the New On Netflix website and are based on expiring licence agreements. While some licences do get renewed by Netflix from time to time, the following titles weren't so lucky.
We've included the expiry dates for each movie and TV show so you can schedule your viewing accordingly. In other words, watch them while you still can!
Note: Netflix is known to quietly delete additional content toward the end of each month - so this is not a complete list. We'll let you know if any additional fan favourites join the chopping block in the weeks ahead.

There are a lot of causalities this month, including some firm favourites like the aforementioned crime caper Snatch, eccentric oddity Swiss Army Man, the award-winning drama Chef, fun alien flick The Host and several standout horror movies.
