Here's Everything Leaving Netflix In May, So Watch While You Still Can

Sony Pictures

As the rush of new monthly releases arrives on Netflix, the ebb of old titles leaving always follows. So what's leaving Netflix in May 2021? Let's check out what to watch shows and movies to watch before they all head out the door.

Like its list of new arrivals, Netflix's exits are not limited to the final day of the month. There are a few heading out early in May, like the World War I drama War Horse. The middle of the month will see the exit of all four seasons of Sherlock, a blow for fans of Benedict Cumberbatch and British mysteries.

But the main exits are reserved for May 31, which will see the exit of several popular films, including the Drew Barrymore romcom 50 First Dates and the found-footage horror film The Blair Witch Project. Several Academy Award nominees will also be put out to pasture, including the Amy Adams/Meryl Streep delight Julie & Julia, the Viola Davis film The Help, and Ang Lee's Brokeback Mountain, which was famously snubbed in 2006 for the Best Picture Oscar.
