There’s been lots of negative news from Netflix recently, but this one takes the night cheese: the streaming service has confirmed that 30 Rock will be leaving in October.
It’s not even the end of the month yet, which is when we’re conditioned to hear all that’s leaving the streaming service. The news was first discovered by 30 Rock fans, who were served banners alerting them to the bad news while watching the show. Note: if you’re planning to binge (re)watch the show before it leaves, it’ll take you roughly two days, eight hours.
This latest announcement comes soon after the head of Disney stated that not only would all Disney movies leave the site in 2019 when its in house streaming platform launches, but also all Marvel and Star Wars films would be removed from Netflix as well.
According to Vulture, NBC Universal first inked a deal with Netflix back in 2011, and both parties appear to be okay with letting it end. Bustle rounded up some fan reactions to the news, where there’s a lot of threatening to cancel subscriptions over this latest affront. While Netflix has been betting heavily on original programming even more lately, one Twitter user says that “all the original content in the world won’t keep me from canceling” if 30 Rock goes.
Which is understandable—whenever our favorite shows and films leave a streaming service we subscribe to, it feels like we’re getting less value from it. If you’re regularly feeling burned by Netflix, Hulu or another site, perhaps it’s time to take the leap and purchase your must see shows, either digitally or in an analog form.
Of course, that’s not all—we’ll know the full list of everything leaving Netflix in October later this month.
