The following contains a list of titles currently on Netflix U.S. that are set to expire during May of 2017. Typically, Netflix subscribers are given 30 days’ notice when a title is going to expire.

What’s On Netflix has been encouraging Netflix subscribers to work their way through their watch list and finish anything that isn’t original Netflix content as the streaming giant appears to continue to be moving towards being loaded with original Netflix content and less loaded with content owned by someone else that they are streaming thanks to licensing and contracts. Naturally, Netflix would save a significant amount of money if they focused on streaming content they owned instead of paying other networks such as Freeform and CW to stream content they don’t own.
