NEW YORK – Film streaming platform Netflix has announced in a newsletter that popular series Gotham is set to leave the service entirely in the coming days with HBO Max tipped to be its likely destination.
For years, the streaming service hosted the Batman prequel series with new seasons added shortly after they aired on the network, but the streamer confirmed that each season of Gotham will be removed in just weeks.
Gotham is technically a Fox show, but for many viewers, Netflix has always been its place but that is set to be history as the latter battles to do away with third party content on its platform.
As of September 2019, all five seasons of Gotham have been available on Netflix, but almost three years to the day, on September 29, the series will leave the streaming service entirely.
All 100 episodes will be removed on that date, leaving a pretty big gap in Netflix’s streaming library. The streamer confirmed this news via a recent newsletter for subscribers.
Gotham’s next destination hasn’t been confirmed, but HBO Max seems like the most logical destination for the show considering it’s a Warner Bros property.
The news isn’t getting any better for Netflix subscribers, as the complete Gotham series is a far cry from anything leaving the streaming service in September.
All eight seasons of The Vampire Diaries will drop on September 3, followed by six seasons of Saved by the Bell (and a trio of spin-off films), which will expire on September 14.
The situation gets even bleaker when you look at the long list of films that will be removed in the coming weeks. Including Blade Runner: The Final Cut and Blade Runner 2049, these two sci-fi masterpieces will drop from Netflix on September 25th.
Nightcrawler, How To Train Your Dragon 2, Argo, Mean Girls, Taxi Driver, Seven, and Insidious are also set to drop in various locations over the next 30 days.
