Everything Leaving Netflix in December 2022

Another year come and gone. Netflix giveth, Netflix taketh away. The leaves turn, the calendars are recycled, we all write last year on our checks before remembering we don’t use checks anymore. Yep, time passes. So if any of the below were on your Netflix to-watch in 2022 list, you better get to streaming, because they won't make it to ’23.

Yeah, a bunch of great titles are coming to the streamer soon, but we also have to say goodbye to some favorites. Medieval fantasy series Merlin (which lowkey got me through quarantine 1.0) is among the exitees, as is Eyes Wide Shut, an anonymous secret sex society Christmas movie you have to see to believe. Casino Royale, Daniel Craig’s first outing as 007, is also getting the axe, but most heart-breaking has gotta be Alfonso Cuarón’s adaptation of the Frances Hodgson Burnett classic A Little Princess.

Papa!

Papa!

SARA!!!

Sorry, something in my eye. Time for I Love You, Man, a pick-me-up that’s a little underrated. The Anwar Sadat joke is my favorite.

Whether you’re riding out the cold weather on the couch or just looking for something to pass the time until the Oscar contenders hit theaters, there’s a little something for everyone to watch. Here’s everything leaving Netflix in December 2022:
