Here Are All The Shows & Movies To Stream Before They Leave Netflix In January

Netflix giveth and Netflix taketh away. As new films and original TV series flood Netflix for the start of 2021, there are also significant shows and movies leaving the streamer as the year turns. The Netflix exits are no longer as drastic as they once were when Disney and Warner Bros. were pulling content right and left ahead of the launches of Disney+ and HBO Max. But there are still significant expirations heading Netflix's way, especially with a new year's turnover. So, what's leaving Netflix in January 2021? Let's run it down.

The two most significant exits for January are beloved old favorites from the mid-2000s. All six seasons of Gossip Girl, a Warner Bros. TV series that aired on The CW, are finally exiting Netflix after a nice long run on the streamer. Warner Bros. is pulling the rights to the show back to move it to HBO Max. With a reboot of the series coming in 2021, this means all of Gossip Girl will eventually stream in one place.

The other massive exodus for January is NBC's The Office. Like Gossip Girl, all nine seasons are on their way out because NBC is not renewing the contract with Netflix. Instead, NBC Universal will relaunch The Office (along with several bonus goodies for paying subscribers) on its own streamer, Peacock.
