Netflix April 2017: What’s Being Removed And Added?

As hard as it might be to believe April 2017 is right around the corner and that means a whole new list of television shows and movies will be added and removed from the Netflix streaming library.

Unfortunately for Netflix subscribers who enjoy bingeing through television shows, April 2017 is going to be a pretty rough month. Pop Sugar reveals that Netflix will be purging a number of different television shows for April 2017 with some of the more noteworthy being Bones, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, House M.D., and The X-Files.

On the upside, Netflix did attempt to make the sting of losing so many great shows a little less difficult by adding a number of noteworthy television series and movies with some of the more notable ones being Gremlins, Disney’s The BFG (which was originally supposed to be released last month), DC’s Legends of Tomorrow Season 2, and The Secret Life of Pets.

With a little over a week left in March 2017, here’s an official list of what’s being removed from Netflix in April of 2017. If any of these items have been on your list of things to watch – better get watching this week before they disappear!
