Netflix in August: All the movies and TV series being removed this month

Netflix is getting rid of a large selection of movies and TV shows in August.

The next few weeks will bring a load of new titles for subscribers to stream, but there are several titles that will suddenly disappear from your watchlist throughout the month.

To minimise surprise, we have put together a comprehensive list of everything being removed, which, due to licencing agreements, includes two acclaimed Original titles.

We’ve specifically marked the territory next to the title – where there isn’t one, it will be leaving both.

NB: The Independent compiled this list with help from
