With the new year come and gone, many people are looking to see how their favorite activity, watching Netflix, will look in the year ahead. At the end of 2020, Netflix removed (and added) some popular shows and movies. So what’s gone, what’s new, and what do we have to look forward to in 2021? 


What Left:

The Office

Fans of this iconic TV show were dismayed to learn that it would be leaving Netflix on January 1st, 2021. Many of them spent the last few days of 2020 rewatching their favorite episodes and reminiscing about their favorite moments. Now they can watch it on Peacock, another streaming service.

Gossip Girl

Another long-running show, Gossip Girl was removed on December 31st, 2020. All six seasons were taken off of Netlfix and are now available on HBO Max. 

Fireplace 4K

It’s not gone quite yet, but several videos of fireplaces will be leaving Netflix on January 20th. Many people played these in the background of Christmas parties over the holiday and winter season to set a festive atmosphere. 


What Dropped:

Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs

This 2009 animated movie came to Netflix on January 1st, 2021. What better way to start out the new year than this classic kid’s movie? The sequel is also available to watch on Netflix. 


What’s Up Next:

Fate: The Winx Saga

Fate: The Winx Saga is a live-action adaptation of Nickelodeon’s early-2000’s animated series The Winx Club. It’s a new series coming January 22nd that follows a group of friends attending a magical boarding school. 

Stranger Things

This wildly popular fantasy show is set to release its fourth season in August of 2021. Fans are excited to see where this show, set in 1980’s Indiana, will take their favorite characters next. 


This thriller series will drop its third season sometime in 2021, although a specific date hasn’t been confirmed. Filming is set to begin in February, after a delay following the Covid-19 Pandemic.
